Got some pics of my new addition 09 750i Check it out !!

Well heres the story i wound up getting a good deal on this car through my friend who has access to auto auctions and we grabbed this car from california

The work was previously done by Platinum motorsports

Its lowered
has color matched pieces instead of chrome
Black painted exhaust tips
Custom headliner half suede/leather ( looks real nice not cheap looking )
Had my old set of wheels from my previous e60 M5 They are 21" Strasse forged r8 decided to throw them on since they fit with no problem.
Has a M package front bumper with Custom LED strips in them

Im pretty sure thats all thats done to the car

Right now i have crappy cell pics but i am supposed to have a professional photo shoot from the wheel company once this darn rain stops

So i will post these until i get the good ones.

Let me know what you think.

Brandon

Looks pretty hot except for the wheels. I mean, you took the chrome out of everywhere on the car just to have them on the wheels? Counter-productive and throws off the black/white contrast you got going.

Question Tell me tell me...

Hey

Your car looks 'hot', two questions for you.

1) How did you black out your grill and turn indicators and roof?

2) What are you using for your Angel Eyes?

Thanks
Craig

Hey nice car fellow New Yorker...
I'm waiting for my 2012 Mtech 7er. Should be ready end of November. Doing a lot of mods on it myself. Project already in motion.
Here are a few suggestions for you my friend: I would change the rear number to Mtech since u have that in the front. Not a fan of wrapped/painted roof since it's a classy car and that makes it loose the classiness. Turn off those ugly amber corner lights off somehow and the front will look better. And def change the wheels as they just don't look Proper on this car and what u have on it. Since there are no black kidney grilles available for F01/02, I'm guessing that they are painted.
And the angel eyes have a regular HID H8 system in them, hence the super brightness of inner rings and medium-light brightness of outer rings. I'm not a fan of those angel eyes since it just looks like u have an extra headlight bulb. In my opinion, the angel eyes have to be lit up evenly in brightness and the circle has to be visible. I will say that it is my greatest challenge for my project so far, but I think I might have found a solution. If it will work out, I will gladly share it with everyone. As far as LED strips, I like them where u have them in the lower bumper, but for myself, I will be putting them in that black opening between the headlight and the lower part of bumper. That way the bumper doesn't need to be cut and then replaced if someone is not a fan of it, whereas the black plastic mesh grill is replaceable and consists of 3 parts I beleive and is cheap.
But the car looks nice, I hope I didn't sound mean. Just really admire a 7er and think that it has a great potential for looking very classy but still breathtaking Modified. Maybe a trunk spoiler would be nice for u to consider. Enjoy the car man....
