Looking forward to seeing all the pics. I am hoping to put after market 20's in black or charcoal grey with some good quality springs.

I wanted to put an exhaust system preferably akra, however my dealer told me that the warranty will be voided, so I won't change a thing.

I asked my dealer if I put a full bolt on exhaust if it would void the warranty he said it shouldn't..

Adding an exhaust will NOT void your warranty...

Simply depends on the dealer. If they are cool, your warranty will not be voided. If they are not cool, you will be hosed.

Here's my plan:

Stock Configuration is: Sapphire Black, Black Full Merino Leather, Piano Black Interior Trim.

1. I will be keeping the stock 20" Wheels on the M5 forever, I really don't like aftermarket wheels on M5's.
2. Full Catless RPi Exhaust
3. ESS Tune
4. Matte Black Front and Side Grills
5. Haven't decided if I want to lower the M5 yet. From what I've seen so far in pictures and in real life, F10's just don't look good lowered. Maybe it's the size, but to me it's almost like lowering a 7 series, it just doesn't seem right.
6. 17% Tint
7. One day I would like to figure out how to take out the Primary Cats, which I think may be easier than we think, since I understand that the headers and downpipes are on top of the engine. My goal one day is to have the car completely catless for maximum volume of the exhaust. I just sold my straight piped RPi Stage 2 E60 M5 and nothing will ever be louder than that short of a straight piped Gallardo or straight piped Carrera GT. I want my F10 to roar as much as possible, although it'll never come close to my Stage 2 E60.
8. I heard from Dinan themselves that they are planning on developing an intake system for the F10 M5. They told me at a car event in LA last year. They are already developing one for the F10 550i. I don't know if it is out yet though, but the Dinan guy explained how it will work to me and it seemed pretty cool.

I think that's pretty much it. I'm guessing with these mods, I should be over 700hp which is my goal.

It would only void your warranty if you substitute the Cat's, if you mod after the Cat's there is no warranty issue.

Yea love the ADV1s - they're priced too high imo though considering they really have no pedigree. My only hesitancy is the owner, Jordan, who ran 360 into the ground. I had an order in with 360 a few years back when they went bankrupt - luckily I ordered through a vendor so didn't lose anything.

Definitely not oval - most likely 4x102mm (what is stock?)

1 more question - what type of change in sound are we looking at if we only change out the rear mufflers, and not center pipes? Do you guys have vids of just that?

The 4x90mm Round tips are closer to stock. Once the M5 hits the US I will have a ton of videos.

Sport rear mufflers only
Sport full system
Sport with full system + downpipes
Race rear only
Race full system
Race with full system + downpipes
In cabin all options
etc..
