Lightbulb Titanium silver 740Li Singapore..

Hi all,
Recently just upgraded to a 740li.
Simply love the ride, never expected that the car have such nice handling despite it's size. Initially intend to settle for a 535i, but fortunately I chose the better choice.

So far I had changed the rims on the very first day on impulse when I collected the car.
Had changed the daytime driving lamp to a 6000k LED one, and the D1S to PIAA 6700K.

Had sprint booster, Okada plasma direct, and Burgertuning JB+ installed as well..

M sport front bumper, Hamann rear diffuser, roof spoiler, and lowering spring.
CF trunk spoiler; M3 design... Black out front grille and window trim as well.
Stock caliper sprayed to yellow, waiting for brembo...

I will post photos of the progress here as and whenever any new mods are done to my ride..
Feel free to comment. Enjoy!

I've gone back and forth on blacking everything out. My car is actually Carbon Black which is like a dark metallic navy blue when it's in the sun. I actually had all the chrome trim blacked out and removed it when I got my rims. I've thought about painting the face of my HRE's piano black like the shadowline trim but I'm not sure. So many options ...

Photos updated.

They r stable.. However it might trigger the warning sign if dtrl setting is turn on. Thus I jus hav to on it manually... Not so bad..

It looks better in actual.. Jus that the outer halo not as bright as the inner. But it's compensated when my PIAA 6200 HID is on..

Looks very aggressive, I like it. Where did you get the sprint booster from? Curious, that's 20" rims?
