Very nice. Love the 3d lip and the black out. It looks very mean.

Great to see another Triple Black out there! Did you by chance do Euro Delivery on Sept 1st? There was another guy with a Triple Black that did Euro Delivery the same day that I did back last year.

Car looks great. I have yet to do the coding myself. I like that you didn't powder coat the wheels black as well. Just my personal style. I ran into another guy in my town that also has a Black M5, although not Triple Black, and he blacked out his grills, wheels, exhaust tips, and did a complete rear trunk M5 badge delete. He said that he wanted people to think he was just driving a 528i. Lol!

Here's the picture thread of my Mika for you to check out.

Looks great. I always thought the term "triple black" meant Paint, interior and wheels? If that is the case I would call this M5 a fantastic example of "double black."

Nope. Triple Black is:

1. Exterior Paint: Sapphire Black Metallic / Azurite Black / Citrin Black
2. Interior: Black Merino Leather
3. Trim: Piano Black Trim

These are the only options from the factory that you can do all black. This is your M5 lesson of the day. There will be a test later.

http://f10.m5post.com/forums/showthr...ctures+of+mika
I actually did not do Euro delivery. The dealer 10 minutes from our house we're a bunch of aholes (Long Story). So just poking around on eBay one night, I happened to find one with the exact setup we wanted. Had every single factory option except night vision, (which we werent going to do because wanted the air scoops and didnt see ourselves using it ever), and the color and combo were what we were looking for. It only had 300 miles on it. The owner of a Honda Dealership bought it new because he is a car guy and wanted to be the first to have. Guess he does this with cars all the time. They originally purchased it in AZ where I'm from, and transported it out there. Long story short, we didnt have to pay taxes, no gas guzzler tax, no destination charge, no doc fee, and a TON off MSRP!

On the blackout...
To be honest, I really dislike the painted black wheels. Hopefully I dont offend anyone, but my personal take is, you see a lot of people who dont have the money to buy wheels or mods, so to get the "modded" look, they paint their wheels black, and spray coat their taillights as "blacked out", and it makes the car look like a black blob. Looks worse to me, I'd rather have stock. Black wheels also look better on a lighter color car. I'd prefer to have the contrast of the exhaust tips and of the wheels, or at least a black center with polished lip, etc.

Mika's a beauty!

Wow. That paint almost explodes in those pix and mods are on the money so far. Congrats.

Gotcha. Then I suppose if you add the black wheels you have quadruple black?

Either way the OPs ride looks great. Would it ruin the triple black theme to have a chrome M5 badge on the back so you can actually see it against the black paint?

Awesome pics - these pics really accentuate the lines in the hood. Almost looks as if there is a power dome.

Curious - what aperture for those two pics with the M5 logo and side vent?

Triple black is actually a term for convertibles meaning interior, paint and top. A quick look at 60s and 70s cars without piano trim still used the term. I guess you can make it whatever you want though.
