Upgrades to my Blacked out 2011 E70 3.5

I haven't really posted about my ride so just making a thread about the mods I've done to my 2011 3.5 X5 over last couple years.

All light housings (front/fog/sides/rear) taken out and painted slightly black.
Side skirts/flares/bumpers all sanded and painted black.
Rear reflectors painted black
Carbon Fiber Eyelights
All emblems (carbon fiber)black/white
Black Grill
Tinted fronts 20% , rears 15% (if I remember right)
Put on the aftermarket trailer hitch as didn't want to cut into my bumper with the OEM one (need to now figure out a way to mount the plug nicely to the hitch somehow as I just tie wrapped it to the side for now)
All interior bulbs white LED as well are side markers and license plate, front/rear turning signal clear LEDs as well.

Coded DVD in motion, fold in mirrors on lock, close trunk by fob and condole button, no DTRL or orange corners, fog lights on disabled when turn singles on, seat belt chime disabled , iDrive startup warning disabled.

Took off the winters, didn't know if i should put on OEM 20's or the 22's , went with the 22's this season. Running 295/30/22 fronts and 335/25/22 rears.

Just need to clean it at this point, i'm pretty much done at this point for mods.....I think

You were better off leaving it stock. Just my opinion, that's all.
