Politely put!!

No quad pipes for me, although I do have a pair of Supersprint rear cans in the garage - for when it's out of warranty!

No loading for the wrap, very little for aftermarket wheels either. (Admiral)

I'm not keen on gloss black wheels TBH (it's an age thing), but I think that with a gloss black roof, I can't have any other colour wheels as it would look odd. Am I right here?? I am known for not having any colour sense!! I do like anthracite wheels.

I take the point about black mirrors.

Gloss black Performance Grilles on the shopping list.

And maybe the gloss black 335d badge to get rid of all the "chrome".

I think the white e91 looks awesome with the Ferric Grey 193's..

Couple this with a black/carbon Grille, carbon front splitters and possibly a carbon roof wrap and I reckon it will look understated but tastefully modified.

You sure you dont want to try wrapping the roof yourself I can get you a good price on the vinyl.

Thanks for the offer Mark, but I'll pass on that one!!!
They use either 3M or Hexis IIRC - they warrant it for ten years anyway!
I didn't think 200 was a bad quote though - I suppose most of it is fairly easy, but they are removing the sharkfin to do the roof (and replacing) as well as the diffuser - I'd imagine it's more time effective to leave these things on and cut round them, even though it's more fiddly and not as neat a job. They need most of a day to do the job.
