Finally Part of the F06 Family

Pulled the trigger on this beauty Saturday after debating on getting into an F06 for a few months. So happy I did! I love my F10, but it just doesn't compare. Waiting on my chemical guys supplies to come in to give her a good clean and proper photo shoot.

Time to research coding now. Also going to be adding spacers (15f, 20r), and ditching the runflats in the future.

Looks lovely. Congrats.

Welcome to the F06 family!

We all will help you spend your money on mods etc!

I was looking into getting 20mm spacers for the rear and moving my current rear 15mm to the front.

I would have to get 2 different length wheel bolts (40mm for 15mm f and the 45mm for 20mm r) Then also get a locking set that had 40mm and 45mm bolts.

I'm just going to get 15mm for the front now making it easier and I can use the same bolts that i'm using for the 12mm I have on the front currently.

Congrats on the new ride, it looks fantastic. I think I would have a hard time with the matte finish since I’m obsessed with making mine look like a piece of glass.

Lol thanks can't wait! If you do that any time soon I'd def like to see some pics. I'm not committed to the 20mm just yet personally.

It's just a simple wrap the last owner put on. I'm going to get the rest of the roof panels wrapped to make the whole thing black.

Yeah, that was a strange call to leave those 3(?) pieces white.

Love the storm trooper reference! I thought it was a strange decision too, but now I can take credit for the look more haha.
