This thread will be tracking the progress of the modification of my M340i. I will have posts showing the installation of each of these parts and will be adding more over time. Looking forward to thoughts and feedback from the community.

M340i Mineral Grey Metallic








IND package arrived today (5-18-19)

IND Painted Gloss Black xDrive Emblem
https://ind-distribution.com/collect...d-trunk-emblem



After Badges (5-19-19)





Front Grille (5-26-19)

Shadowline Front Grille with Parking Assist
https://ind-distribution.com/collect...e-front-grille

Installed today. Fairly straightforward but a couple things to look out for. When popping the push clips out ensure you go slowly and don't lose the pin for the clip they are not one piece. For models with parking assist look closely on the back side of the grille you need to transfer the entire camera from the old grille to the new. Ensure that the connections are pushed in tightly after swapping. My camera was not working after 1st installed and had to remove and reseat the connection. Now that i did it twice I have the process down and could probably do it in about 15 mins. Let me know if anyone has any questions.

Shadownline Exhaust Tips (6-20-19)

Easiest mod so far. Two screws and we go from cerium to gloss black. All cerium on this car is now replaced. Full car shoot this weekend when I get some nicer weather.

Looks awesome. Did you install everything yourself? How hard are the reflectors and badges?

It's funny I feel like there are certain paint colors that the 791M and 792M each work better on. For mineral grey those 792s look best.

I actually think the OEM Grills looks 10x better than all black...especially since the car has that same color all over throughout the metal trims.

The black emblems are a nice touch!

I'm slowly trying to replace that color. I have the bumper trim pieces on order and doing carbon fiber for the mirrors.

It's shaping up quite nicely , once those bumper pieces are changed gonna look hella aggressive.

I think the shadowline grill is a must have addition. I am not big into mods but this is certainly one i would do. I bet BMW makes this an option soon in the US.
