MG does look really good from your pics! And as much as I dislike those wheels (and I saw them at the Philly Auto Show), the colors work well together. However, those ///M side marks will have to go!
OP, I know you commented on the exhaust, but do you think the MPE would be worth the added cost or does it sound good enough (I know subjective). Also, have you decided on the M235i or are you also considering an M3/4? This is the conundrum I'm presently in.
