Congratulations. Does the key case fit properly?

I went for a drive today to celebrate. Will post soon.

Well ... for Xmas, to reflect the M5 out in the garage, my wife provided for a nice addition to the den! Look familiar?!!

Wow... I bet you fill that with (Santa's) elves' dust for that extra luster...

Yes, I think it fits pretty well. You sacrifice having your other keys on a chain, but we'll try it for awhile and see if I can make the adjustment.
Congrats on the drive...always fun to enjoy the "big toy".

Vey nice - love the key fob holder. Just as an fyi, that looks to be a TPMS valve, but Im not sure what type of climate you live in. I believe metal caps on TPMS valves in colder climates is no good.

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=420856

I only stumbled upon this when I was trying to figure out why my after market wheels had regular stems with metal caps on the outside, and a TPMS valve with a plastic stem on the inner barrel. Turns out my TPMS valves required plastic caps only, so for aesthetic reasons they used two stems.

I received some IND side gills in gloss black. Also 3 bucket washing system (LOL ordering mistake I assume) with a couple wool and micro fiber mitts, couple bottles of ONR, some other detailing stuff.

I am really excited to try and wash the car in the garage without a hose. Such a weird concept.

ONR is the real deal - it works as advertised.

Thanks, I'm in the Southeast, so road salt is an uncommon occurrence where I live (it might snow once a year). If we have an ice storm (some years this is more likely than a snow storm), then the M5 is staying in and the 4WD QX56 is the vehicle of choice.

Also, I'm reasonably diligent on adjusting my tire pressure with the temperature changes (and have the Temp/Pressure not displayable on he car). But, I will definitely be careful of over-tightening!

Those ///m tire valve caps are indeed plastic. I have them and they are a nice subtle edition. I like symbols here and there but not too big, these are just right

Look a little chinsey I your hand because they are plastic but look good when on the wheel

Hahaha definitely, never really liked those kinds of lights for christmas.. I escaped with a careless driving since they didn't have me on radar. (Thank you V1) I put the hammer down from 45+. No worries though its all taken care of.
