Right now I have a IB with Speed Cloth on order (E90). I'm nearing the deadline on my decision so just looking for feedback!

Thanks!

No regrets here. When i ordered it i was afraid it would look "childish" after awhile. A year later im still very happy with my choice.

So true. Pollen really shows up. White is better than IB in this regard, but I think silver/gray is even better than white. And IMO the CF roof goes best with space gray.

But, having said all of that, I like my IB. When it's clean it really looks good.


Cheers.

Go for the IB....you'll love it!!
awesome!! I love this combo! any more pics of the car showing the interior?

With the stock gunmetal wheels, would it look better to leave the chrome grill or swap out to a CF set? I am trying to balance the colors of the car.

previous owner of my car had the flat black grill installed, I like it better then the chrome. If I had to buy something I would probably get the BMW performance one since it matches the side trim better.

Here is mine.

I have ordered the OEM Black Chrome Exhaust Tips, Satin Grills, Satin Gills, and OEM Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps and Carbon Fiber Performance Spoiler so when they are installed I'll add some more pictures.







Here are the latest updates.

My favorite color on an M, but I'm afraid if I buy it I'll regret it. I've had black cars all my life and currently sold my E46 sedan which was blk/blk and am thinking of IB/Blk M3 ,but and worried after a while I'll get bored of him.
