You don't need the URL tags, just IMG tags and you've posted the thumbs, not the images. You should have asked me Brian

Beautiful car by the way. If I could keep it all clean, this would be by first choice colour combination. Congratulations!!

without the chrome, the exterior looks so much more aggressive! Great car!

That's not the stock M-sport wheel tire combo is it? If so, they look awesome with carbon black.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Yep, she is a beauty. The chrome pack really does finish off the interior. Not cheesy at all.
And no, Mondolemite, those aren't the stock wheels. Optional 20" M's. My wonderful GF allowed me to spend the extra $. So worth it in my opinion!

Just curious, what was the extra cost to upgrade the stock M-Sport wheels to the 20 inch rims?

Did you install the interior chrome package yourself? If so, how would you rate the difficulty, and what special tools are needed? It does look nice. Still can't decide if I'd like it in mine or not, but it's a consideration.

The 20's were about $5600 Cad. I really debated over this because of the cost, but once she arrived I was SO pleased. The attention this car got at the dealership was nuts! I also have the 19" rims with the all seasons for winter driving. I kinda justified my investment thinking that 2 sets of tires will last twice as long
The chrome pack was installed at the dealer. LEDZEP I think it would look great on your oyster. It really takes the interior up a notch in my opinion. if you go to www.bmw.ca
and access accessories, you'll see a nice pic with your wood choice.

Absolutely love it. And, it is SO fast. Barely missing my Supercharged Range Rover Sport. Although, I gotta say I'm missing the sound system big time

That looks really nice. Just wondering how much does that Chrome interior package cost in Canada if you order that from the BMW service department.

The extra chrome bits make the wood a LOT better... without it it looks cheaper IMO... now it looks more in tone with the new 5 series interior. Just wondering if the extra chrome bits, is the quality very nice or is it pretty obvious that it was just stuck on after the fact? Thanks!!

What's to say? Carbon black has blue in it, and it can be show quite blue in bright sunlight. That's what it is. Why did you order Carbon Black if it "kinda scare me"??
