Thought I'd start a mod thread for my M6 for something to do. And I'm at work and bored. Haha
So no real major mods but some things here and there.
Firstly here is my M5 back to stock the day I traded it in. The last pic I have of my M5 :(


And here's a dealer pic of my M6 waiting for me to pick it up

Here's a pic of the exhaust I picked up off a fellow member here.
Not great gains, but I like the look as well I have a little one sometimes in the car with me so sound level was important.


Here's a pic of the suspension I picked up from a different member here
That is getting installed as I type this :)

Here is the car on it's way in to get the KW's installed. Not the best pic.
When I get it back I will put the scoops and grills on, as well as the orange reflector
decals.

No need to mention this but I'm looking forward to seeing your new whip all done up. Sorry, but my ride's not coming out from under the covers until the weather warms up:grrrr:

Thanks Dan, I will post some real pics when I get it back and have drop dialed in.
And maybe then we will have some sun and not slushy dirty snow

John, for sure! Maybe you should fire up that BBQ this spring :)

Wow, sounds like you're well on your way modding your M... I guess I better get a move on! With this warmer (not as cold) weather, I'm itching to get her mod'd. Thanks for sharing! Can't wait to see the AFTER pics!

Well I have been lazy :) I have had the M6 for awhile.
Just finally getting around to it. Just buying stuff all winter haha
I mean I can't golf, have to do something!

The M5 vs the M6

I have to say the only thing I miss with the M5 is the back seats.

I prefer the look of the M6 more, looks much more sporty to me as long as it has a front lip.
The car should of come with one!

The seating position is way better in the 6. and the dash is 100% nicer.
I went from a m3 to the m5 and that big flat dash in the 5 always bugged me.

The 6 feels more planted and it does feel faster to me as well.
When I first test drove the m5 I scared myself lol but that wore off as it always does.
Then when I drove the 6 I did it again. So I do believe it is quicker.

The handling is much better in my opinion.

Over all the 5 was a great car! It Did everything great. But I find the 6 does everything that much better.
I think I'm just a M6 guy

Thats gonna look great with KW's on!! Nice mods! I started yesterday with the Eibach springs, so nothing major- it is much better though, nice drop and still retains good ride quality. Can't imagine what the V3's are going to be like, should be another car! I had them on a CSL and they were the business, awesome ride quality, and handling was sublime.

Next week i'm on to the RPI pulleys and scoops with the AFE bucket filters in the stock air boxes. Got a set of matte black front and side grills, and waiting for my carbon lip to arrive. Its going to be a good week!!!!

Well stopped by and took alook at my car tonight. I'm still getting a couple other things done, so I will pick it up in a couple days.
I grabbed a few iPhone pics, yes it needs a bath, and it's pretty dark.
I have to check the drop etc... It's very low in the front! I will go back tomorrow and check it, see if it rubs etc..
Anyway any comments on the drop? The grills and other goodies will go on this weekend :)
