Saunders' M850xi Gran Coupe - Delivery & Light Modification Thread

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi all!

Even though I've been reading & posting for several weeks now anticipating delivery of my M850 GC, I thought I would start a thread. I wanted to share some updates/specs/pics in case other M850 GC owners out there were wanting to make some of the same modifications I have.

(Sorry if this post is too long or has too many pictures but I wanted to make it complete and descriptive)

First of all, the car:
MY20 (Production Date 06/2020) M850xi Gran Coupe (G16)
Exterior - Alpine White
Interior - Night Blue/Black Full Merino

See full list of all modification links at bottom of post

This group of pics were taken shortly after it got off the trailer at the dealership:
(You can click on each image for a high-res version embedded from my public dropbox folder)















This pic was taken after I replaced the Cerium Kidney Grille:
(You can click on each image for a high-res version embedded from my public dropbox folder)



These pics were taken after tint, clear bra & ceramic coating but just before springs went on:
(You can click on each image for a high-res version embedded from my public dropbox folder)









These pics were taken after the IND reflector delete & the H&R springs went on (I tried for the same exact location/angle/crop):
(You can click on each image for a high-res version embedded from my public dropbox folder)









These pics show before & after pics of the springs:

Amazing ride man and definitely many items to be taken (copied) from that list for me bit by bit - first and foremost the cerium delete. Well done and enjoy this beautiful beast.

I may have missed them but have you posted any pics of your 2020 M850i coupe? They are somewhat of a rare breed given the limited allocation so just curious what you ended up with as a fellow member of the club.

Congrats and looks fantastic! Also, never apologize for length or number of pictures as everyone appreciates them. Plus, somebody has to give limeypride a run for the money on number of pictures posted.

In regards to the M fender emblems I believe they were on all of the 2019 M850i builds (any owner in the forum can confirm or set me straight) but for some reason BMW dropped them on the 2020s. I'd love to see a pic of the trunk emblems as I'm either going to have the cerium versions removed or replaced (the IND may be a contender) as they flat out just don't go with my full Shadowline/Carbon Fiber exterior elements.

I will keep that in mind on the picture posting. As my wife will tell you, I'm pretty much having a secret love affair with this ride right now...seriously, it's gross & perverted (insert comedic response from limeypride here). Regardless, consider the flood gates open!

I hope to put the IND emblems on this weekend so I'll post up pics if it happens.

I used this pic from the stickies in this forum to create a vector based Adobe Illustrator file. From this I created about 20 measurement reference points on the image in order to get my emblems in the right spot with the right orientation. According to the sticky, these are images of a 2020 M850.

My wife would state the same although I'm not picture heavy on my posts. Rather the conversation with her entails "I'm going for a drive" in which her reply is "enjoy your mistress".

Proof that BMW still knows how to make a good looking car. Just blows my mind why they choose not to follow this same recipe for most of their newer vehicles coming out

To be honest, there is/was nothing wrong with its looks in stock form...except for the Fauxmeister Kink. Your mods lightly enhances the 8er's look.
