Thanks for the pics. Black gives the M5 a very menacing look.:thumbsup:

No kidding. I love the look of black cars, but they show every speck of dirt, and the smallest of scratches or other imperfection.
Blues aren't much better either, trust me.

THANKS FOR THE NICE PICS.

I still wonder why the car rides pretty high - why have BMW not made it a bit more lowered - to give it a more sporty look?
Funny enough the pics on the BMW site (Silverstone II) shows the car much lower - presentation/marketing wise I assume.
I wonder whether lowering the car would affect anything mechanical etc.

Cheers.

I can't believe BMW would misrepresent the car by showing a lowered car on their site. It's probably perspective or whatever, but if BMW mechanically altered the car from the production specs, they would be liable for a lawsuit.

If you lower the car, you'll decrease the suspension travel. Depending on the type of springs/shocks you substitute, the effect will vary. No doubt you will experience some deterioration in ride quality though. The real question is how much...

I also thought that the car looked like it was sitting a bit high in the pictures, but after seeing the E60 M5 on the road I can tell you that it isn't actually as high as it appears. If I would be modding my E60 M5 I'd start with a new exhaust and some lowering on the suspension.
