See the bright spot below the LH reflector of the BMW in this shitty image? That’s the chrome interior of a virgin tailpipe reflecting my headlights. See the absence of such a spot under the RH reflector? That’s because the other exhaust pipe is all sooty. So either someone’s got a new tailpipe in the last 5 minutes, or 440i’s have a single exhaust system and a fake pipe (or it’s been running on 3 since new, I guess). And the fact that this leaps out at me like (literally) a searchlight is naff. You could at least make the effort to paint the inside of the fake one black, BMW.
