A monochrome purist.

I am a BMW purist, so I wouldn't black out the car at all. My exterior is OEM.

But if you are a monochrome purist, you would want to go all the way.

I think a blacked out car with red calipers and blue badges just looks gauche.

I think you should change to the shadowline window trim, the chrome doesn't work with your black out theme... and you should also not mod the car in the way you like, you should do it as I would do it.









Just kidding, just kidding!!

Such a nice car and so many comment fails..

i find it childish when people change the BMW roundel, but that's just me. The OG white and blue is where it's at.

The calipers, on the other hand, would look great in the OEM blue color or Silver like you said.

This car is gorgeous, If i had the money I'd have a Black F10 M5 in my driveway right now

Please don't misunderstand my advise here:

I am not a fan of changing the Roundel. However I am also not a fan of changing the grille. To me the the chrome kidneys are a signature BMW look, and by blacking out the car it already looks generic and not BMW like.

However, the blacked out car is effectively a cross-brand theme, and doing it right means being fully monochrome in my opinion. The logos are a minor thing, but silver calipers would really enhance this car IMO.

I was amazed on how professional it was! they really took care of the car.

Here is exactly what they did

Tyres and exterior plastics cleaned and conditioned.
Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and polished.
Rain/water repellent coating to all exterior windows (can last up to 1 year).
Interior surfaces steam cleaned and sanitised killing all bacteria and germs and detailed using compressed air.
G-Techniq coating application to all wheels (can last a year).
Full paintwork decontamination (removes embedded contaminants).
Hand-dried using ‘deep pile’ microfibre drying towels.
