+1. Not a fan of the blacked out taillights or headlights look.

Definitely should do the color matched door handles, though. Imola does look very sexy.

Imola is a perfect color for the F10 M5. Much better than Sakhir. Looks really sharp.

I think this would look great with Opal White leather.

Nice to see an RR that is not white or black.

Phase 2 is Done

Phase 2 is now done and the car just left my house for IND. Since the initial post I have added:

(1)Tinted the windows with 3M Crystalline (50%) and (90%) on windshield.

(2)HRE 940RL 3 piece wheels. Full brushed face lip 21x9.5 & 21x11 with Michelin 265/30/21 and 305/25/21.

(3)OK petty I added an Imola red roundel to the steering wheel.

Once it gets to IND they will do some more heavy lifting. The car should be back in a couple of weeks so I will post the final pictures then. Couple of quick notables: I love the wheels but I probably would have had then tinted clear coat if I was to do it again or maybe even had stayed stock. Second, I want to thank Ben @ The Wheel Boutique who I purchased most my upgrades from and treated me really well. Third, I would like to acknowledge Ryan at BMW Cleveland. He was great to work with and when others were giving me lines he gave it me straight and delivered.

I have to call it out. That red roundel looks completely shit.

Also you should repaint your calipers. Blue calipers don't look right on a red car.

The roundel is just vinyl overlay so I may pull it off..but I like for now. I agree about repainting the calipers. IND is going to repaint them along with the door handles and other bodywork. I also will probably have to drop the car a little bit as the new wheel/tire package looks to be a lower profile than the factory wheels and the gaps have widened.

Thanks for the feedback

Saw your car today at iND. Wow! You have one gorgeous M5. Pictures are good but nothing like seeing it in person to get a true sense of scale and presence. The red looks very good on the M5. Congrats on the unique car and tasteful mods.

I wanted to share the pictures which include to-date the IND painted side grills, painted front grills, painted reflectors, and Eisenmann 102mm Race Exhaust with cross pipe.

I am going to get the car tinted locally and I have wheels coming next week. One I have the wheels I am sending to Chicago to have Andrew and Nate from IND do some body work and enhancements. I will post pics as I progress. Enjoy..I really am.

Charlie, thanks for the nice comment. Now that you saw the car what did you think of the brightness of the wheels? Certainly can't offend, just looking for genuine feedback. I am about to send them back to get tinted by HRE.

I'd say get the wheels tinted or resprayed to a dark graphite gray, I think that would set off the car real well. The wheels are slightly "shinny" that they take away from it. My 2 cents from a picture anyways (as in person things sometimes look different).
