Rather than adding more that you could do to it, I'd like to comment on what has been done.
The panel work is fantastic. When you're finished doing the side panels, they're going to fit like a glove, and they really change the look of the interior.
They blend in well with the custom mid-panel, and give the case a very smooth overall look.
Your mobo panel's cutouts are what Silverstone should have done in the first place.

Adding that additional pci-e slot to the i/o panel is going to modernize the case, and give it more versatility.
As for the 5.25 bay panel, it looks like it was quite a challenge getting it to fit, but will be worth it. Obviously you've decided to do away with the front door and usb connectors. It will be interesting to see what kind of cutouts you can make for any drives, rad ventilation, etc.
Great work!thumb.gif

Something I would like to see would be the halo lighting around the big fan grills. I'm sure how to go about it but I would say that you could use some carefully placed led light strips.

I suggest you add pics to the main original post, so that people don't have to sift through pages to see your build. I want to see whats going on but I instantly get discouraged when I have to tredge through all these pages.

Don't know if this has been recommended (search didn't show that it did) but how about taking your case to bodyshop and having it painted with OEM BMW paint ! Probably expensive but definitely custom.
