The LED angel eyes looks amazing, even better than the ones on the F10.

Wow guys! Long time no "see". Hope you are both well.

Bav - to answer your observation/question, they basically replaced the BMW M Sport elements in the front and rear with their own design... not bad overall. I'm not a fan of the chrome they stuck on the upper rear, but then I don't go much for chrome accents anyway.

If you take a peek in my "garage", you can see my new one.

+2. Also a bit puzzling. The 325 E92 existed for only one model year. and I don't believe the M Sport package for the E92 was offered until some time later (year or two).

One thing I might add... that the paint on the Schnitzer's cars were really spectacular! As good or better than BMW's individual paint option.

All in all, I think they offer little over the M Sport package. Basically just an alternate design for those who want something beyond "stock". I prefer the M Sport design, and not just because I have one. The front is a little too much like the X5, not that the X5 isn't beautiful - but it leaves very little distinction between them.

The only benefit might be the power boost, and there will be other options for that - like Proceed, etc.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy looking at it and like *most* of it, but it's just not "all that".

Love the exhuust trim

I love the exhaust trim, but I read the fitting instruction that the original exhaust need to be cut off a couple of inches before this new trim can be fitted. It look a bit scary to be honest!

Any other options for a nice exhaust trim for 20D?

Ditto that, those rims are truly ugly.
