Anyone has pictures of m performance part on sapphire black x5?

I'm considering to put m performance parts on my sapphire black 40d, but I don't know what it will look like. Much appreciate if anyone can post some pictures of m performance parts on dark colour x5.

I'm putting a performance exhaust on my sapphire black 35I. Although the parts came in yesterday i had to order an additional part which came in today, hopefully i will have it installed by end week.

Would love to see your pics even stock. I'm being pressured by wife to go Saphire Blk but lots of people say go white as it brings stands out better than black. Did you have the same thoughts?

Check Shahini's

And this one, which is actually carbon black, but looks more like BSM in these pics, some of the best you'll find showing the lines and stance of the car:

I have Black Sapphire and love the color but it is hard to keep it clean. It's a magnet for dust. Here's mine..

I had the same question when M-performance parts just came out... Tried photoshoping (i.e. changing color on white car with m-performance parts to black color), but due to numerous highlights, reflections, etc. it's a bit like cutting blocks with a razor - just doesn't feel right.

My google research came to only one decent example of how M-performance/CF parts look on a black bimmer - here's the link to M550d. Still not completely convinced, but already asked the dealer to give me quotation for the parts and installation

Finally got a quotation for brakes + front/rear splitters/diffusers + mirror caps + black grills from the dealer; came up to EUR 9384 just for the parts w/o the labor. Now I seriously doubt I can justify spending that much for that little... Guess I'll sit tight and wait for someone else do an M performance styling on a sapphire black F15 first

How did they do the exhaust tip? If I remember correctly, you had a luxury line so it should have came with the round exhaust tips. How are they able to modified it to the rectangle tips on the performance exhaust? Do you have additional pics?

Best,
John

^ Sounds really aggressive. Congrats, man! One question...are the exhaust tips supposed to stick that far out? In comparison to wdimagineer's M performance parts, the standard M exhaust tips don't stick out as far as yours.

They do stick out a quite bit but they are definitely bigger than the m sport tips
