Thanks for all the kind words guys.
I have literally hundreds of E39 photos on my computer which I have collected over the years. It was really fun to get inspiration from other owners and piece together what is, in my mind, the ideal E39...*cough* except I couldn't find an Alpine White in time *cough*
russap - those lines on the corner of the tire are normal, it does however rub ever so slightly when hitting dips/humps at speed on the highway. There are marks on the tire from this but it hard to see. Once the springs settle I will probably fix this problem... rolling more fender instead of raising of course.
m5-forever - It was to give perspective, it looks like it is hanging but that is actually as far as I could get it in there, nice and tight.
gbtech - Great eye, it is on the list along with the under-engine splash guard. One of the previous owners actually had the stock door trim pulled, had molds made, then had the molds wrapped with real CF. The trim was a little bulkier than stock and also extended further rearward which caused it to eat up the seal.
xplodee - I will get some more pictures, I feel that the guy who wrapped it for me had an off day, his work is normally perfect but for whatever reason most of my trim pieces are coming apart. After the initial install he said if there were any problems he would rewrap it for me. I would like to give him the opportunity to redeem himself before I publish his work over the internet....especially if he is going to rewrap it for free....not to mention he gave me a smoking deal on the initial price.
