Any one else own one.

This is my 2nd GT, the first was a 535D that I slightly modified and then sold it to purchase a Laguna Seca Blue e93 335i.

Last year after letting my 2011 F11 535 go I purchased a Ford Focus estate that lasted all of 4 weeks before I part exchanged that for my current F07 530 GT on a 12 plate.

Over the last 3 years there is more stuff out there for the GT so as i like to make my cars mine I decided to see what was out there.

Wheels were my first purchase, 20" and 10j and 11J with a 18et all round making them somewhat aggressive, they were painted gloss black to go with the all black look.

Next was to de chrome it, new side indicators painted gloss black, and some door handel trims to replace the tiny chrome strip, the rear chrome strip was removed and wrapped in gloss black.

I already had a pair of genuin Hamann side skirts that i purchased several years ago so they were unwrapped, painted and fitted.

Then came the side skirt extensions, designed for the M Sport side skirts so i was unsure if they would fit but they went on without any fuss.

As there is NO front splitter for the F07GT M Sport i did some resurch, measured up several splitters and found that a splitter from a VW T5 worked after a little fettle.

Along the way its been mapped, from 245 to 310BHP and better fuel consumption although when i need to move that go's out the window.

And currently i am looking at modifying a 550 defuser so i can go the quad exhaust tips route
