The M6 wheel is a direct bolt-on replacement. I have it on my M5 and love every moment of holding it compared to the stock bus-like wheel. I guess with this change, the M6 wheel will just become "official" on M5 instead of being an unsanctioned mod.

this is very very nice! I think those are the HRE P40 wheels, if im not mistaken... I have the same wheels on an alpine white car as well but mine are the matte black finish...Think they are labeled as the HRE P40s wheels if im not mistaken. I absolutely LOVE the car and your exhaust! lol again I have the same exhaust as well but identical I really think that car would "pop" more if you had those wheels in the matte black finish

The car is absolutely beautiful though man either way and it is done very tastefully. My new M6 should be arriving in about 3 weeks...Alpine white/fox red interior. Sometimes I cant sleep at night after looking at cars like yours lol. I have Akro exhaust on my current E92 car and have already ordered the Akro axle back for the new M6... Should have gone with the catback but I can always order that if I really need to. Depending on how it sounds in person with just the axle back Akro with carbon tips will help me decide if I need the mid section which will eliminate the resonators ect... You should be able to hear a M5 coming down the street in my opinion especially with two turbos

Great looking car man!!

I was going to ask the same thing. They look like P40S rather than the new SC version

Very very nice!

A couple quick questions:

1) On the vent gauge, if my vents look exactly like the ones pictured, I assume that would be the "steel slats" option when ordering, correct? (with silver on the bottom edge and top edge)

2) What are the specs/sizes on the HRE wheels and the tires?

3) What suspension does this M5 have?

Thanks!

Yes, the P3Cars gauge is with the steel slats. The wheels are HRE P40SC and 20x9 front, 20x10 rear. We ran a small spacer in the rear to bring the wheel out a little more flush. Currently running the H&R springs.

M6 comes with fox red interior? Did you special order it? Did you mean Sakhir Orange?

M5 looks great. I love the M6 wheel and how it feels. Now if only the airbag wasn't so damn small compared to the rest of the wheel

so literally, plug and play? No coding? No modifications needed to get it to work, and all buttons work?

Yeah, absolutely no coding. Everything works. The wheel was pre-assembled for me and the swap took less than 10 mins Here's the list of parts. Note that it's for cars with lane departure warning:
