Evolve Imola E39 M5 Photoshoot

Our E39 M5 has been featured here before. It usually wears BBS LM's but we wanted an additional set of wheels to switch up the look when the mood required.

As the stock wheels are now NLA we took the opportunity to have 6Sixty Design make some OEM style wheels but in 1 Piece Forged and a Square set up. The end result is a 18" wheel that is lighter than stock, has a deep lip and clears the Brembo BBK.

Full specification:

Evolve Supercharger Kit 630 BHP at 6 psi
Evolve Headers
Evolve Sports Cats
Evolve Cat Back Exhaust

Bilstein Dampers
Inrax Springs
Brembo BBK

One of my favorite cars ever, I should have kept it! They don’t make them like this or that gorgeous M5 any longer! Sad!

Fantastic. Always wanted an Imola E46.

Interesting choice of tires he put on the car.

Timeless car, they have aged just like a great piece of cheese or wine.

Great looking E39!
I'm guessing 630bhp is probably a perfect number, but what has been your experience with it so far?

E39 is IMO the best BMW ever, and of course the M5 version the best of the bunch!
Beautiful, just beautiful!
