So anybody get anything new for the scoot for Christmas, Hanukah ?
Nothing here for the scoot but Wifey picked me up a new Ford OEM Radio / Navigation with all the bells and whistles for the F-250.
Now I need to install it next week, plug and play so even I should be able to handle this.
So watcha get?

That's sweet Moe. Should be pretty easy.

I got a boat a couple of weeks ago.

Otherwise, my 4 month old nephew got me a bottle of grey goose.... that was the best one.

Hunting clothes, ammo, a crossbow and bolts. I have no desire to do anything to my bike other than ride it. I made that clear to everyone before Christmas.

Well, the Bmer was a wee present I bought myself in December, new job and all. :) I bought myself some little stuff for the new (to me) Bmer, and a little handiwork as well. In the next week or so, I'm going to complete my self holiday shopping to replace the roundels on the hood, trunk and wheels with carbon-black versions, and also paint-matched trim for the side lights on the quarter panels, pics to come once thats done.

Before: (I had already added the gloss black grilles and tint as G-man knows)

After (smoked quarter panel reflectors and painted the silver lip fin black)

https://keithhu.smugmug.com/Other/Email/i-9MHHx3T/0/X2/20151226_091529-X2.jpg

Putting on the reflectors, I had to open up the wheel well and hold it back with bungee cords so I could get my hand in behind the reflector

New reflector in. In this pic, the reflectors shine because of the flash, but in normal daylight they look great, blended in to the body nicely.

Painting the lip fin. These are in mesh grills which you can just yank out and press back in.

The before pic prior to *any* mods?

Oddly enough, I dont have any no-mod pics other than the garage pic, which is a bad pic.

This one is where the tint is the only mod. Notice the chrome gilles. Black grilles are much better. The chrome window trim is starting to get on my nerves. I'll probably have to do something about that in the spring.

Digging your car Keith. What year ?
Wifey drove a Land Rover at one time I bought from Erhard BMW. Every time I would take it in for service I would be greeted by a porter. As I drove in , he would hand me a Rose ! Get that, a Rose! Felt weird ! And no , not a gay thing..lol, everybody would get one. Every time I see a Beemer it reminds me of that.
So like you, I picked up a new to me F-250 Lariat with the 6.7 turbo Diesel. HP and Torque from hell! . Wifey came with it.
No more Roses at the service department....... Downriver, I'm back !!

Its definitely sharp Keith ! No doubt about it. Feel your wallet getting lighter as your head spins just thinking about mods...lol
For me, the 250 is pretty much loaded. Installing the OEM Navigation radio in it this week. Other then that, well, I'm not gonna say it....

Yes, yes, I know. They are a bit difficult to change because they are recessed. The rear ones are red which arent horrible, at leas they arent orange.

I've pulled a few bumpers to black them out. Now... I would probably just plastic dip them.

That new black logo looks nice. But, isn't the original kind of classic and not to be messed with?

Do you know why it's blue and white in that circle? Without looking it up.... (yes I know)

I confess I do not know why they are blue and white. I did catch a small amount of grief from a guy on a BMW forum for suggesting I'd change them, but many on those forums change them.

On the rear reflectors, I want them still to be reflectors like my front ones, so I'll probably just buy replacement smoke reflectors.

My Ram is also an inexpensive model... it's actually nice to not spend more money and it allows it to just do truck stuff.

Yeah I know a bunch of people that help build those... and it's local. Gotta love it.
