My Singapore Gray w/ Sakhir Orange M5 Build

I finally got a chance to take a few quality pictures. I figured Iíd get them posted before the modding begins. Iíve owned many cars Iíve loved over the years, but I must admit that as a daily driver, this is by far my favorite. I just love this car, and after I get done with it, it should be very special indeed.

Modding so far:
  • Clear bra front
  • Tinted windows
  • Valentine installed
  • Painted brake calipers

On it's way:
  • IND full Gloss black trim kit
  • H&R Springs
  • Meisterschaft full system w/valve control
  • 21" ADV1 custom built 5.0TS wheels
  • Michelin Super Sports - Front 265/30/21 Rear 295/25/21
  • Gruppe M Intake
  • Last but not least, Dinan Tune when they realease it

Just got my car back from Platinum Motorsports, and all I can say is... WOW!!! :

The look with blacked out trim and lowered stance is very stealthy. The ADV1 21" wheels look incredible! And the Meisterschaft exhaust created an entirely new experience. It's like the car has been transformed. I couldn't be happier.

Unfortunately it's been raining on and off all day, but when things dry up, I'll shoot a few pictures and post them.

While filing her up, I decided to take a few pictures in the rain. The car was actually totally wet and dirty in these picture. I'll follow these up with a real photo shoot set.

just wondering for your interior, was that special ordered with the bottom half of your dash console matched in sakhir orange? i noticed that and your bottom half of the doors are different than some others with sakhir orange interior (where theirs remains black).

The full leather interior option give you the leather dash in black and several other interior pieces in Sakhir Orange leather.

What size are the tips on your exhaust?

I like the brushed look of the meisterschaft. It looks better than eisenmann I think.

They are 102mm. I'm very happy with the sound and quality of the system. I get compliments all the time. A guy on Sunday walk across the shopping plaza parking lot just to ask what kind of system I had.

It's interesting. My objective is for people to say, wow the M5 sounds really good, without realizing I have an aftermarket system. But your system does look very good.

I think the difference in this situation is an experienced car guy versus a lay person. As an example, if I heard a CLS63 fire up in a parking lot, I'd know if he was stock or not, even though I've never owned one. I'm sure you get what I mean.

Thanks for the compliment on the system looks. It's definately very well made and a great addition.
