Bay Area Sunday Meet- 7 F10 M5s (HREs, M6 Steering Wheel, Akrapovic, and Eisenmann)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Awesome meet today in a sunny afternoon in Bay Area (Palo Alto Meet). It was a fun meet to meet and get to know other local F10 M5 owners. We had a great time. First time seeing krispykreme’s Amazonite Silver M5. The color was astonishing. Great to re-unit with cnicholson after our ED meet. Barry’s car looks sharp with his H&R and spacer set up. Sanguru and Barry’s Eisenmann set-up was amazing. We also got to see wdimagineer’s AW with his M6 steering wheel, Akrapovic, HRE P40C, and other OEM euro goodies.

Here are some pictures from my camera. Look forward for our next meet.

Yeah. It looks better than I thought. Still love the h&r height though.

Nice cars everyone! Let me know if there are any future meets planned. I just picked up an AW with Sakhir yesterday.

Also, can anyone recommend a good tint shop in the Bay Area. I'm in San Francisco, but don't mind a drive for good work. Last shop I used for my 335i didn't do a great job on the dot matrix.

Thanks!
Rob

I did mine in premier in Fremont. expensive but the job and quality is really good. They deal with high end cars all the time. The film has nano technology and blocks 98% of uv. Around $750.

Looks like it was a great meet up! There is nothing more beautiful than a gaggle of F10 M5's lined up next to each other! I wish I was there!

I saw your most recent pics with the Morr's installed. Wow! They look great. I may have to follow your example. Gunmetal or brushed both look fantastic on AW.

Matt Britton @ Rocky Mountain Window Tint in Livermore is awesome. Done quite a few cars for me already.

Great meeting everybody yesterday. We need to go for a drive next time!

Thanks for the input! Did you have them install a clear bra also, or no?

I second this. Rocky Mountain is the best in the area in my opinion. Dropping my car off there soon.

And thanks to everybody yesterday for the hospitality! It was great meeting everyone. Hopefully we can do this more often as we add new owners to the family.
