That is a seriously sweet ride.....

Checks all the boxes for me..... can you provide a parts list for all the 50D parts you changed out?

Didn't realize you were in HK. I'm in Suzhou

Unfortunately I didn't order the parts my installer did. My car is the first one he did and the first one done in hk according to him so it was a bit tricky especially the front Intake parts took multiple orders from Germany to get right. He also said the exhaust tips were very painful to install.

The grill is so huge. It's like a snowboard. Pm me and I can put you in touch with him.

You nailed it, looks great. I'm not a big fan of the black out treatment, stock silver is a bit shiny, but have always thought that the matte M style grey would look awesome. And it does!

Took 2 pro body shop guys a full day. Had to take off rear bumper and maybe the front one as well. They were extra careful because they were learning with my car. Apparently the exhaust tips are the hardest and the front lower intake part list is more than it seems and each side is three parts.

He really did I'm surprise more guys are drooling over this look over the black. Something about the black just doesn't look quite right.

I would refrain from posting the simple part numbers because people may just order the whole set without realizing the complexities.

Your list doesn't contain the front intake parts which are atleast 3 different parts per side. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=51_A196 My guy only ordered the trim and realized some more parts were needed.

The grille has several versions due to parking camera and nightvision options see here http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=51_A215 So it's better for someone who knows the details to order the specific parts they need especially the grille.

Use below to find all the parts.

I'd hope people still do their research...but those are the correct parts, both grille versions included (second is for night vision).

Good add on the front intakes.
