So I've been up to the usual. Finding more ways to modify my 2003 M5 and continue on with the black and silver scheme. Below you will find my most updated photos with the following new modifications:
MGW billet satin silver radio knobs
Gloss black painted kidney grilles
BSW dual 12" Alumapro subwoofer box
Elemental Designs amplifier
Elemental Designs gain control knob
Advanced Flow Engineering intake kit
Angel iBrights LED bulbs kit
The radio knobs are obviously not for everyone, I'm sure only a few of you guys are going to like them...but I love the technical look and spark they provide for the interior. I used to have these same knobs from MGW on my silver 2002 Corvette Z06 (for the A/C knobs) and I always wondered how I could try and make something similar work on my M5...So...I took a chance and I ordered two custom made satin silver radio knobs for a Viper SRT10 from MGW Limited in Georgia and I basically just used my factory knobs as the base and customized them so that the base fit directly into the bottom of the new billet knob and the two fit tight together and it worked perfectly. Simple plug and play, I'm very pleased with the fit and the look. Anyone interested in trying this project can order the billet knobs from www.mgwltd.com
and just PM me if you need help figuring out the way I made it work.
The new stereo from BSW simply rocks! I can't say enough good things about the guys at BSW. Can you say customer service! I've had a lot of systems before, but in terms of tight bass this is rediculous. It really has a lot of impact and clarity. We custom mounted the Elemental Designs gain control knob for the subwoofers on a Titanium Silver painted mounting plate to match my other painted interior trim. The subwoofer box in the trunk is basically a custom made mack daddy version of what they typically sell on their website. The sound is quite shocking...on most alternative rock tracks, it literally sounds like the drummer might be inside the trunk!
The Angel iBrights are a nice addition too, finally got rid of that dated yellow white angel eye look. The photos of the angel eyes were taken on a overcast day but in daylight so they are not as noticable in the photos compared to if I had waited until it got darker outside. I'll take some more photos at night soon.
Here's the photos. Thanks, Garrett
