My OEM+ Alpine White M240i

Not really sure where this is gonna go but my excitement hasn't yet weaned since taking the car home about 2 months ago. I suppose this thread is partly for me to keep track of everything I've done.

I've always liked mods that didn't looks like mods. Mods that fly so far under the radar that no one can tell the car is modded unless they really know the F2X chassis.

I'll start with some photos of the day I brought the car home. Immediately did a fill interior detail and carpet shampoo to make it feel as new as possible.

Next up was a very thorough detail to get some scratches out, remove the worn clear bra, and deep clean the wheels.

Removed smoker package, cleaned the inside of the gauge cluster, and swapped the worn/damaged black chrome exhaust tips for chrome.

Hopefully some day BMW learns how to make an exhaust tip that doesn't corrode...

New wheels incoming!

These are Alzor 030. They are 359M replicas made by ECS Tuning and they are VIA/JWL certified.

18x8 all around, OEM BMW center caps, M wheel emblems. Can't wait to install these!

They are from an F30 340i. I believe they are the same as 440i as well.

Recently learned my car is NOT Alpine white and is instead Mineral white! That explains the pearl/metallic flake I'd been seeing.

Got some teaser pics of my Coby wheel that should be arriving July 14!
