Blacked out Roof rack and bike carrier

Didn't like the aluminum finish of the OEM roof rack and bike carrier. I painted them black. Also got a Thule fairing. Had to custom rig the fairing. Painted that with Plasti-dip.

Youve gotta love the versatility of our M5s. Not too many V10 powered beast on the road that you can put a rack on to hall your bikes on. The rack looks great. Question, Ive seen a few different picture threads of your car and have noticed what looks to be a laser shifter on the front of your car? Is that what Im seeing or is it something else. If its a laser shifter what brand is it? Thanks
