Can't wait to see more pics. Love the Marina Bay Blue!
So it is prepped, ALP installed and M Performance CF side skirts on. They let me have it for the day to drive with a dealer plate since I am leaving town and wont officially pick it up till January. Car had not been detailed and clear bra goes on next week along with winter wheels. Here is a pic at hone. Ignore the garage mess, college kid moved his stuff back...

Absolutely stunning and enjoy!!

Need some advice on the ALP install as had to turn off Laser for my trusted Valentine 1 as all of the interior controls set it off like a Christmas tree. Read somewhere on Bimmerpost it was the Gesture Controls but even after I turned that off it still lit up on Laser regardless. So looking to ALP for Laser jamming as have the radar covered with the V1 and a tried and true customized setting over the past few years here in Phoenix to negate all false alerts. Highway wise I let it run wide open and it has never let me down (on my 3rd V1 and zero tickets).

ALP is the best laser detection and jamming currently available. I have the front system plus TX only. Can add the rear but huge cost with labor. Installing the radar heads was a nightmare. My tech had to modify the aluminum bumper support was a huge job. I have pics I can show you later. Message me with your phone and I will text them to you. We can probably chat tomorrow as well.

Mine was put on last night they look great and the fit and finish is what you would expect from factory. You got a fair price as well. Your parts guy must like you. I dropped the car back off at the dealership so they can do the clear film next week while I am away. Will definitely send good pics when I get the car back on the 3rd.

Sadly no, M Performance part. Neither is the grill or carbon side vents which I don't like anyways.

Nickle and dime on BMW's part but likely not as bad as Porsche as every time I built out a Panamera to my specs the options were endless and and the total end result made me walk away.

Picked it up today. They did the ceramic coating for free as well. Absolutely beautiful in person and to drive. Honestly all the reviews are just that when you drive it is when you decide if it is for you. Better pics to come in the future after my long work weekend.

Absolutely stunning! Now I just need to figure out how to get my detailer to do my ceramic coating for free on Monday/Tuesday. They just completed the entire front-end (including headlights) along with the rockers, mirrors, door edges, A-pillar and the roof. So I picked it up for enjoyment over the weekend.

Somewhat freaked me out as they take the car apart to do full coverage with all edges wrapped for the front-end, i.e., no seams but as I dropped it off there was a McLaren 720S fully deconstructed as the owner was doing a full PPF of the entire car. So figured might as well trust them with my new baby.

That is the best way I only did the front end, mirrors and side skirts and rockers. A pillar is nice to do.

In the back of my office. Shows the snow wheels. And thank you for the props!

Pretty sure they are 19 but staggered offsets for front and rear. Same set as M5c. Come with Michelin Pilot Alpin
