Iím not much of a spoiler guy, so Iíll let others weigh in on that... BUT, if you ever decide to address the license-plate holes, I have a recommendation there: Bumper Plugs! https://www.bumperplugs.com/index.ph...&product_id=73

Color matched and looks great filling obvious holes. I say that because with your color, those holes are almost imperceptible. I wouldnít notice had you not mentioned it in your post, and had to zoom way into see them.

But Iím ordering them today to put on a Space Grey x3 that is on itís way to me. And had them on my previous 535i as well, they hold up really well.

I have the first one and really like it. I think the second one is a bit too much.

I took it in for the last time under its 4 year 50k warranty to get checked out. It turns out they did a pan gasket. Good thing I had them look.

I definitely had the bumperplugs on my radar before taking the holder off. I'm contemplating wrapping it, so I'd probably get them fixed before then.

I think I may prefer the first one too. I definitely didn't like the carbon of the second one, but the shape interested me. Thanks for the input!

I'm not a fan of spoilers either. They cross the line between smart and snarky. But if you must, definitely the skinniest one.

On one of my activities during pandemic drives, hit either a fox or a possum. Little f’er just shot right out and lost his existence.

Agreed!! Edit- looks awesome!!!

Although I’m still waiting on my Maxton front lip before posting pics of my baby. Taking 4-6 weeks will probably be more like 4-6 months.

I ordered xHP and xDelete license’s... waiting on a battery charger to show up, and then will play with the transmission flash. (Then have to wait for a reason to put 50 miles on her to allow the adaptations to occur properly)

Yes you are on the money with that.
It has grown on me, but still not completely.
My kids can’t believe I have a car that color.
Couldn’t pass it up though. Well cared for. Mint. 29k miles when I got it.
Outstanding car.

You live once. Glad you bought it. I think you're in the same profession as I am and if so, we both sacrifice so much in the name of delayed gratification.

I almost bought this exact car 2 years ago - except it was a 2015. Had the opal white individual interior. But it had had some small accident so I passed.

This is all to true.
I am very glad I now have it. Aside from the trials and tribulations of what we do, I have had much sorrow in my life. My kids are now gone, etc...
It is now only these little things that divert, and occupy me.
Thanks for the thought.
