M Carbon Exterior Package and IOMG

I’m building my IOM G80 and am conflicted on the M Carbon Exterior package. I’m a fan of the diffuser and rear spoiler in CFRP, but don’t love the intake inlays and am actually liking the IOMG on the mirrors.

Does anyone else find the inlays for front air intakes to be less attractive than the stock front?


My current plan is to go lighter with the wheels (have black wheels on my toy and I like variety). I love IOMG and feel like the silver accents of the wheels and exhaust tips compliment the color better than the blacked out look. Based on most of the launch cars in photos, it seems like I’m in the minority on that one also. Anyone else planning on an IOMG build that isn’t going super dark with all of the accents?

M Carbon Exterior Package and IOMG

It's still up in the air for us, we're wanting a G82 comp IoMG KO or silverstone seats
I kinda like how the car looks with body color mirrors, chrome tips and bi-color 825M wheels and red or black calipers

It's a no charge option for extended shadowline trim deletion thankfully for those who like the extra body color pieces

I liked the carbon intakes the first time I saw them but over time I started liking the mesh better. Im also going with the bi color wheels so you're not the only one

I like the carbon inlays, but I feel I want to see them in person again. They're definitely more aggressive visually, but I'm sort of worried that a rock is going to cause some havoc, they look practically wide open. Granted everything we've seen is technically pre-production, so that might differ.

I like the carbon fiber front intakes and carbon fiber mirrors if you're also doing the diffuser and rear spoiler.

I also prefer the bi-color wheels on IOMG.
