Hello Nate

DO you mind doing thread on it, so more people can see it!

i am sure there will be more than 10 people willing to buy them, also depending on price, but you can definitely count on me!

Any way it'd be possible to order the M Performance steering trimmed in normal black 'steering wheel' leather (i.e. in lieu of the alcantara)?

i dont know if it is coming in alcantara or leather, but alcantara is so much nicer to touch and if you are worried about it being worn after some time, there are people who would change your alcantara for a fresh piece and stitch it back into original 3colour, at least in UK

I just prefer leather. First a properly conditioned non-greasy leather wheel has the perfect level of grip, I find Alcantara too grippy. Second from an aesthetic point of view it just doesn't make sense to me that the steering wheel matches the headliner instead of the dashboard. Would def snap up a leather wheel at that price.

BTW Any chance you can get us some specs on the tips?

These are the part numbers for the M5 grills, only issue is I think they are for cars with night vision but I can't confirm. Good news is that they retail for 70EUR each. Cheaper than I thought they would be
That is the BMW Performance part number for the gloss black non-LCI front grilles.
I want M6 carbon splitters. Count me in!!

M6 stripes Spoiler and front Diffuser

I have had the M stripes on my M6 convertible for over 4 months now. I'm surprised that it is now available. I have also had the rear painted spoiler and the front diffuser (M6 coupe) installed. See pics. The diffuser really helps since the front is so long.
Really like the CF exhaust tips when and if they become available.

If you are planning to install the front diffuser yourself be aware that the holes to secure it to the bumper are slotted not round. So you may want to have your dealer install it. The part is only $60 USD and believe me, its well worth it if you keep hitting parking lot curb stops.
Thanks

The stripes are 4 pieces (for front and back) and are precut for specific M cars. I installed it myself using a few drops of baby shampoo and water in a spray bottle. Hardest part is getting the correct angle. I use a laser line tool. A good professional squeegee would also be helpful to get any air pockets out.
Thanks

My contact in Germany said they are still in the process of producing the BMW Performance F10 M5 LCI grilles. He's going to shoot me an update right when they are ready to go.
