What have you done to your E70 today?

I seen this thread is a few forums but not on the E70 so here we go:

a few days ago I installed:

M package front wheel arches
M Package door trims
Regular rear wheel arches (painted)
And got the black plastic covers on the rear bumper primed/painted silver.

Before



After

OP, Looks good but unfinished, since looks like the front end still black and the side rails. question for you the front flares and side trim were purchased painted already from bmw?

they do not come painted, they come primed ready to paint.

I still have to do the front bumper.

which side rails are you talking about roof rails? or running boards? im not planning on touching those

oh i see so are the door moldings shaped different or you just choose to just get new ones instead of painting the existing ones? thanks sorry for all the questions but this is a mod ive been looking to do. love the monochromatic look of the M models

They are not shaped different but they come primed ready to pain, If the boddy shop has to do this they charge a lot of money to prime them and they do not give you any Waranty on the paint in case it starts peeling off.

The wheel arches are shaped different a bit and the rears don't fit without the M package rear bumper.I didn't know this so I have 2 M package rear wheel arches in the garage
