Took Some Photos Today

Hello everyone, I've been pretty busy lately but just taking a minute to check back in here. I took some photos today...this is the current look.

Big thanks to member Alpine M5...I bought a set of like new 20" Rial Daytona wheels from him...thanks for the deal.

I'm not selling my 19" BBS LM's but just having fun with the Rial wheels...thinking of going with darker graphite gray colored centers and then maybe doing the vents on the hood in the same graphite gray...not sure yet...also might change the Rial center caps to something else.

Since I posted photos last, I've changed the exhaust again...I'm running a custom setup consisting of four main components:

Britalman X- Pipe
Magnaflow Stainless Piping
Borla Stinger Race Mufflers
Custom Quad Polished Tips

The setup is very loud, I would say it is about one level louder than a x-pipe/kelleners/eisenmann setup...very aggressive...of course not for everyone since it is insanely loud and lots of resonance...sounds killer though.

Some of you Atlanta area guys want to meet up soon?

Comments welcome, hope everyone is well!

Have you considered painting your mirrors black to match the roof?

p.s. Those are the best looking 20s I've seen on an M5, but I still like the 19" LMs better. The appearance of you car is slowly becoming less "business" and more "bling". Be careful!

Those 20" look great!! Did you have to adjust your suspension much to achieve that look? Either way, looks great and if this is your "blinged out" look...me likey!!

The car looks great!! Good shooting skills. Your very welcome on the wheels. It couldn't have gone to a better home

Let's plan on a weekend shoot soon that is outside where I do not have to setup for flash and white balance Stone Mountain? Hills of Dalonegha? Jenks you in? Congrats once again on the marriage!!

I hope to have my 997TT by then Woot!! It's on the boat 7/2 - no ETA yet though

AgentZero - the suspension did not change from his original set up with the 19" BBS LM's which I happen to really like on the car as well.

I really like the way it sits and looks. Of course I am a little Biased

NICE! I thought you weren't going to do it? Did you have a little talk with the Mrs?

Great color!!

You got to give me a spin in that I have been trying to get behind the wheel on one of those.

Yeah lets try to get some members for a meet up around that time. I hope to have the TT by then.. They are putting on the springs at the dealership. I hope to settle on my rims since the set that I want have a long ETA on them. Rinspeed C5/1 20" Limited Edition. I am thinking of Champion RG5's 20" but they only make the back in 11's or the OZ Superleggra III in 20's and silver. So many choices

When are you taking the GT3 to the track?
