Arrow The front bumper is off the Beast !

I just want to share some pictures with you ... took the front bumper off the car today...

it will be going through small cosmetic surgery ...
stay tuned !

PS. i really like that BMW use carbon fiber reinforcement support and not the aluminum like they did before

since I don't have cold weather package (just the heated seats) I was thinking to shave off those small plastic parts (in red circle) that are not doing anything (time to save some weight )




what do you guys think ?
