2011 E92 Mineral White with Dinan Upgrades

Hello Forum members,

I want to show this forum my recently arrived 2011 E92 Mineral White M3 that my local Dinan dealer just upgraded with 400 miles on it. I just traded in a 2009 E92 Interlagos Blue for this, so I have had experience with this car. Both were Manual 6 speeds. I have to thank everyone that has posted previously on this forum as it has helped me make decisions to get to this point.
I hope my post helps others in their decisions. I must say I picked it up today after these upgrades and it really felt like a different car, even though I am still in break in and can't take it over 4500 RPM's. I can only imagine what it will be like when I can in a week or so after the service. It sounds and feels totally different. Dinan all the way.
I will also say on my way home a de badged black 1M gave me a major thumbs up and we ended up conversing for a while with rolled down windows about how much we enjoy our cars. A good sign.
Here it is:
Dinan Exhaust with black tips
Dinan Stage 1 computer upgrade
Dinan Pulley

BMW Carbon Fiber rear deck spoiler
BMW Front Carbon Fiber Splitters
BMW Carbon Fiber Side Mirrors'
BMW Front Grill replacement kidneys Black/ no chrome


All done by my dealer and under warranty.

Hope this is helpful and enjoy.

Side Gills

It's funny but I think with the mineral white that little bit of chrome works. Still debating it.

Also for those that care about this nuance of esthetics, I feel the competition package wheels work well with the chromed side grills (gills)
Any one agree?

Anyone knowledgeable about the Dinan air intake upgrade and inspections?
It seems that wouldn't affect an inspection, unless it involved a computer change to the exhaust emissions?

I'm going through the same debate - I keep flip flopping between blacked out grills (and sides) vs. leaving a little bit of chrome in there.

On most other colours blacked out is the way to go, not sure with MW.
