There was a modded e60 (I think) on this board a while back that had lambo doors and modded interior... I think the interior was green and purple... I did a search but could not find again.

Can't picture it and don't want too. I don't even think they belong on an M6.

I saw it on an M3 once. I was at the dealer and it pulled up, sorry about pic quality I used my camera phone. Im not a big fan of them on BMW's.... cant really place it on a sedan either. Ive seen more of a gullwing door on a Hamann car and I thought that was a little cooler than the scissor look, but Im still not a fan.

It seems to me that the crash protection would be way off with such a modification. BMW has spent millions trying to make the doors and occupant area safer. I just think this would be thousands spent in the opposite direction.

green and purple interior? Who's car was it, the Jokers'?
I dont think I can picture an E60 with green and purple interior. I can only picture hondas and nissans with that.
