New ///M added to my collection

Ive had the car for about 2 weeks now and all i can say is WOW! This car is a absolute MONSTER!!!!. The car is loaded with all the options except NV, CCB's, and Rear Entertainment. I plan to get a clear bra installed within the next 2 weeks or so. Can anyone suggest a reputable shop in Houston,TX? Was thinking about checking out XPEL Houston off of 45 north...

Welcome to the MCB M5 club!! I am in Houston as well, Kingwood on the north side.

Best shop for clear bra would be Koshi at Excessive detail.

Do you have any plans for mods?

Ted at Europower off of Fondren and West Park Tollway will be your go to guy for any of that or regular maintenance but I know you have warranty.

We have a group of guys that get together for country runs once a month or so. Send me a PM and I will get you the details if you wish.

Beautiful ride

Cheers,
Anthony

Thanks man.

Im over in spring area.

I usually go to M Performance off cypresswood and kuykendahl. My buddy is good friends with Ted over @ Europower and wants me to check his place out also.

As far as mods go I just ordered the LCI cosmetic package from IND (Gloss Black Grill, Side Markers, and Color Matching Front Reflectors).... Im still thinking about what engine mods to get(exhust,tune, and intake). Just skeptical for warranty reasons.

Yeah id be down to join you guys on a country run.

Yeah id be down to join you guys on a country run.

Alex and David over there are good people. I have known Alex for quiet some time. He is a great mechanic.

I have RPI Catless downpipes with resonator delete and Meisterchaft exhaust. Extremely loud but sounds sooo good. I am about to go with the ECU tuning group tune from Ted.

As far as warranty goes you are good with exhaust and tune. I am assuming you go to BMW Houston North?

Eric Majors over there is my SA and hands down the best SA in Houston. He has taken care of me for years. When I had my E64 M6 rod bearings failed and needed a new motor. I had full exhaust and tune with Ext warranty and had no problem getting a new 30K (quoted) V10 motor. Only had to pay $50 deductible no questions asked.

Just had to take the M5 in for DTM and the shop foreman told me to get a tune. I told him I was skeptical about a tune because I didn't want to void my warranty. He told me off the record he has never had a problem getting warranty work done on a car that was tuned. With Eric and the shop foreman being cool that is all the reassurance I need to get tuned.

That is a good start on the cosmetic mods from IND. Those orange reflectors are such an eye sore as well as the chrome.

Shooting you a PM.

Cheers,
Anthony

Anthony, I would love to hear your setup sometime. Youtube just doesn't do much justice audio wise lol

I live on the North side so BMW North would be ideal but I do work off of I-10 and dairy ashford(west energy corridor) so was thinking about getting service done at Momentum BMW West. Any recommendations?

Do you know any dealers that will offer a good price for extended warranty on my m5?

Welcome!! I had my full front clip done by Executive Tint on Hilcroft. Speak to Brandon. They did my tint also and had previously done my wife's MB and my Panamera. Good quality and service. They have a location on North side also...on 1960 I believe.

Anytime man, not sure when our next country run will be as our ring leader is offshore right now. The next event we will all be at is Dyno Day at Eurocharged Houston off beltway 8 on the west side. The event is Saturday November 7th at 10am. There are doing $80 dyno pulls and will have a food truck there as well.

Pm for more details if your interested.

I have a couple buddy's that use MO west. Talk to John Swann he is a service adviser there.

Cheers,
Anthony
