Headlight lenses

Posted 30th March 2012 at 03:57 by stowm5
Is it possible to just replace the headlight lenses on the 06 M5? I bought this car from Virginia and the headlight lenses seem to have some pits from the sand.

Blog - Square Setup Impressions - 3/11/2012

Winter is finally over, I couldn't wait to stow away the mushy Blizzaks and put on proper Dunlop Z1 star spec rubber on OE 18 x 9.5 all around. 3mm spacers and extended bolts were mandatory, along with a bit more tightening torque up front. Initial impression the Dunlops grip is ridiculous compared to the snows or Potenza all seaons I had. I still have not taken DSC off, but the acceleration is ferocious compared to the snows, which would trigger DSC in 4th and occassionally 5th gear on dry roads....

HARTGE 21' Classic II Rims, PLEASE HELP?

Posted 28th February 2012 at 20:05 by TobyGeiger
I'm trying to purchase any of the Hartge Classic II 21' rear rim 10.5 wide with the 22 offset for my 08" M5. One of the rears is cracked and have spent months waiting for Hartge to send me a new one (but they dropped the order after waiting 4 months to arrive). Does anyone still have any, new or used for sale? and I would consider buying fronts also to avoid future problems .... Not interested in spending insane $$ tho. Thanks for reading, so dissapointed in Hartge !

Updated 29th January 2013 at 21:42 by ben5
With the sun shining in London this weekend I was able to complete the first step in my upgrade plans for the stereo.

I'll be removing:

-DSP Amplifier
-Motorola Telephone Module
-Analog TV Tuner

Then installing the MS-8 which provides input signal summing and conditioning, 8 channels of crossovers, time alignment, EQ and RCA or speaker outputs. All powered by DSP with automatic tuning and calibration.
