MG M235i with Carbon Bits

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
BMW of Dallas got their M235i in this week it looks like and they fitted a few of the CF parts.. CF Mirror Caps and CF Spoiler. They look pretty good. I was really impressed with the spoiler as it had some presence to it without being too much.

I wish BMW (or someone) would make a carbon fiber rear diffuser to replace the ugly rear valence.

Wow. That is awfully tempting. Looks amazing. Kinda funny though, while I initially loved that the diffuser nearly matched MG, now I sort of wish it was darker when accompanied by the CF spoiler.

Edit: any chance you have a straight on photo from the back at a lower angle? Regardless, thanks for the pics above!

Edit #2: For anyone dying of curiosity I would recommend browsing the Autotrader listings. Although the pics on this listing appear to have been taken with a potato, I think this EB model is equipped with the CF spoiler, judging by its profile: http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...66305350&Log=0

Haha that's crazy money. Carbon spoiler for e82 was about 300gbp so hopefully less in uk. Should make up for us paying so much more for the car lol.

You are damn right they aren't worth that kind of money. The F30 M Performance CF spoiler is $525 MSRP and the mirror caps $325. I can't imagine any reason why the F22 parts would be more. I think whoever quoted you those prices is high on crank.

Wow - that looks really good.

That's going to look awesome on AW.

The 600 price is listed on official BMW parts site.

My apologies - the listing I was looking at was for one cap hence the $325 vs $650. But the spoiler is obviously only a one piece deal so still not sure why they are is quoting him the $1100.

I was told the spoiler wasn't available yet. It's not listed on the accessories page of the website

Bimmian just posted a 2-series section, including CF mirror caps that look pretty damn nice for $149. No spoiler though, at least not yet. I'll probably go that route, and skip the spoiler unless they offer one that will be a perfect match.

i like the "almost lost" look. Would rather have carbon on dark grey than have carbon on white for example where it would look a bit more "stuck on"

No sure why you'd have carbon if you didn't want it noticed?
