Great work love it! RE the fold down rear seats, I was aware prior to ordering my car to make sure I take that option but it really should have been standard like it is for the E92s

Mixed feelings..the big attraction of BBKs are the bling factor of an ultra-loud color caliper..your car is def in stealth mode..aside for the M emblem its hard to immediately notice they are BBKs..

I know what you mean, but to me, these really should have came stock. My father has a C63 so it's def more reassuring when you know your car can go fast as well as stop fast.

I'm trying to emit a "Family man" vibe. Just the other Sunday I drove my Grandma to visit my Great-Grandmother.

On another note, HK laws basically does not allow Cars to be modified, and that you are very likely to fail the inspection (6th year for new cars). I am looking to keep this car for a while, it's also my forward thinking that is pushing me to go as OEM look as possible.

Thanks Everyone for their comments.

Photoshoot is coming soon, and there might be special guest(s)

That is clearly your attraction to them; not everyone's.

I'm considering different brakes for easier brake pad swaps. I have no interest in "bling".

OP - looks great.

Not my attraction otherwise I would have a BBK..you do almost as well with better pads and fluid...I would say about 90% of people doing BBK's major consideration is bling factor..I understand the OPs reasoning for doing it his way and it does look good....just stealthy

Brakes are sold, because I got Rays RE30 Clubsport 18x9.5, 18x11.

They wouldn't clear the brakes, so I'm looking at viable options.

Stay Tuned.
