Yeah, the rbrakes came on the car. I have the bmw performance box with the original 540 brakes sitting in them.
They stop fantastic. I don't know what the regular brakes feel like, but I've had a chance to mash them on the highway and higher speeds and the car slowed down in no time.
I've got some interior updates coming.
M-Sport wheel, alcantara boots, etc. Can't wait

Recently got rid of the wood trim:

I was contemplating selling and swapping up for an M5 so I hhad it up. But I really the 540 so I think I'm gonna rock both. Lol. Going to wait until after Xmas and pick up a low km m5 when it pops up.

Love this car
Contemplating a possible career change so I won't need a work vehicle anymore. Makes room for another toy
