Default on to the new

Ladies and gents,

Well the time has come for me to say goodbye to the E60 world and say hello to the F10 world! I sold my 08 535i and just purchased an F10 535i. Glad to say i wont be saying goodbye to the BMW community, ill just be moving here to the F10 side of the house. Attached a few pics of my new whip. Any first mod suggestions?

I'm definitely thinking spacers and window tint. BUT I still have my spacers from my E60. Wondering if those would fit (haven't searched yet).

High flow engine air filter?

I hate the gap in the wheel well but am hesitant to drop her considering the issues I had with my previous setup ( dealer refused to diagnose/cover a vibration because I had an aftermarket suspension)

Very nice, I would drop it, but if the dealership is going to be a pain about it then it's not worth it. Wheels staying the same?

Yeah chances are the dealer will be a mofo. Although if i just throw on some lowering springs and leave the shocks alone they may not even notice (wishful thinking). Im gonna keep the wheels the same for now but im itching for new ones. Ill be moving down to the LA area in two weeks and i imagine i will get to see lots more rims in person.

Welcome to LA! I live in LA as well,

As for the wheels, just going to leave a few pictures here for you maybe we can fix the itching, might help that we are having a huge sale on all ADV1 wheels

Collection can be seen here ADV.1 - Wheel Collection
