"M-Performance"-Yes
Tint-Yes
Door Handles-Maybe (better if body color)
Glowing Emblem-No
Wheels-No (Like aftermarket wheels but in this case I like the factory 20" better than those)

M Performance is just a sticker on the stock rails, right?

Exhaust - yes
M Performance rockers - no
Emblem - No
wheels no

Those look like OEM Style 312 BMW wheels. I hope not because if they are then you took off high quality forged lightweight wheels and placed them with heavier lower quality cast wheels.

I kinda like the wheels, ADV.1? They might have been a tint darker for my taste, some brushed gunmetal or similar.

EDIT enlarged the pic and saw the SL badging, nice!

I like the tint.

I don't like the backlit BMW emblem, I don't think it fits the aura of the M5.

If I painted the chrome door handle strip I would do body color.

The dealer here in town does the black "M Sport" rails on all the M sport 5 series cars they put on the showroom floor. So in my mind it's not unique or special anymore.

I don't think the overall look is a big upgrade over stock, but its not a step down either.

Exhaust looks great, thinking of doing an exhaust upgrade myself. Quite like the mpower rails. Personally I love the stock 20" wheels so no to the wheels.. And the emblem is cool but too much for my taste.

need to see the car further away with those wheels.

Not a fan of those m performance side skirt decals. They have the opposite effect that people usually go for when modifying a car. Visually they make the car look more lifted/higher off the ground.

Thanks for the inputs. The wheels are forged from ADV.1 and much lighter than the stock ones.

Just started the engine and interior mods.

I will also replace the rear M5 emblem and return the OEM BMW emblem.


Here is the engine cover that will be replace with GruppeM intake.
