     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
We have been working with a local M5 forum member here in the Bay Area over the past couple months. His F10 M5 has really come together with the help of Nate@iND and some hard to source OEM parts. Build thread below and professional photos recently added below.

2013 M5 in Alpine with extended Sakhir....hope you all enjoy. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

The M6 steering wheel is a Euro part. It will be in the new M5 coming and currently in the M6.

Interior Trim swapped out for the Aluminum.

UPDATE:

As our first phase of upgrades comes to a close, we thought a photoshoot was a good idea. It has been a great experience working with the owner of this M5. A true car enthusiast with a very high standard, our favorite type of builder and now a new friend. We'd like to thank Nate@iND for his help in sourcing some of the parts, including the painted reflectors and Akrapovic exhaust system.

With the customer's help, we were able to source a lot of Euro-only parts. These parts are what truly set this F10 apart from the rest. Stay tuned for the next phase of upgrades and enjoy some amazing photos of the Bay Area.

Enjoy!
