Hi All,
You'll be seeing alot more of me on here! Used to post on M5 forum... Just picked up a 2007 Interlagos Cabrio on Sunday 1/20. Traded in a 2005 M3 cabrio, and just finished 24 month lease from 2006 E60 M5 in November '07.
Got an excellent deal (since it's an 07!) and it worked out like -

-East Bay BMW (Pleasanton CA bay area)
-$114,600 sticker / $103,500 negotiated!
-Fully loaded interlagos/black/cabrio (HUD, comfort access, everything except auto-closing doors)
-136 miles on it when leased
-27 month lease (BMW financial)
-$4,000 cash drive off from me
-69% Residual 265 money factor
-$3,800 negative equity M3
-$4,500 Cash incentive from BMW for '07 6 series
-Got a bunch of crap in finance (interior protection, windsheild insurance, ipod kit, window tint, etc)
-Free IPOD 80gb video AND BMW Golf bag (ok, had to beg for the golf back, but they sell for $495 in parts)
-$1399 month/27 months/10k miles a year (I won't even need that much)

I did a bunch of mods to the M3... $5k in wheels, eisenmann exhaust / midpipe, intake, chipped, etc...
YOU KNOW WHAT? I never got it right! So this car, I may leave alone, but am tempted to do exhaust, may drop an inch eventually but keep factory rims. Anyone do that?

One big thing I almost feel I must do.....
Carbon fiber trim kit... Anyone any experience aftermarket trim kit?

Thanks look forward to reading up on this forum!

with the black roof on ILB vert I would make the front kidney grills black. I like mine stock for silver gray exterior, but I've seen an ILB M6 and the black grill looked great.

BEAUTIFUL!!! love it in interlagos blue, ALMOST like it more than indy red. Drive it safely and ENJOY:thumbsup:
Yeah, Indy Red has got to be nice.. My M5er was indy. My M3 that I traded was Carbon Black. They had a 6er in that color, but I know how many issues I had with the Carbon Black on M3 (easily swirls and seemed to loose it's shine / luster easily), I went with Interlagos.

Interlagos blue

Yeah i got it from shelly bmw. I too was looking for a White one, but no one had an 07 available when they were dealing before 2008. I agree the black is dull and a true deep black would've been great. Don't get me wrong its still a beautiful car no matter what color.
