Quick update. After 1.5 years of ownership , still stock ! I've spent my original budget of $7k just on maintenance ! Fuel pump/filter, power steering and hoses, thermostat, some rear suspension work, bodywork (fixed rust spot over rear wheel arch and repainted front and rear bumpers as well ), plugs, all fluids, guibo , diff seals. And I'm sure I forgot a few things.
Still have the clutch eventually to do ( still original ), and full suspension.
Three mods I will definitely be doing : Short shifter
Coilovers
Intravee
I'm considering a tune as well for better drivability but no rush .
As time goes on hopefully I will get caught up ! Cheers

+1 on the E60 545i short shifter. Also get the E40 ZHP knob. Best gear shift knob i've ever used.
Or, better yet, the f10 M5 shift knob. I will be adding that to my ZHP as well.

nice to have a big budget.
I ‘m assuming that all the regular maintenance have been taken cared of. If not I will do the fuel pump, filter, change trans and differential oil, cooling system, brakes, etc. before I do any mods.
