Ronnies M5 is one great looking car. Saw him in action today. His M5 is as good looking in person as in the pictures.

Still not fully warmed up to the black grills but the rest is awsome. His AE's were blazing away and he was chatting away on the phone.........thus he did not see me on the other side of the road.

Good Job on that M5 Man ;)

Thanks Tim, I'm on my way to get the leather dye ;)

BTW, I just changed my ebay cheap-looking plastic kidney grilles with the high-gloss painted ones :)

Yup, thats them. They actually look a bit more Blue on your car in person. And that is really nice considering your blue car.

When you see my car you will notice mine has Black Chrome grills. Shiny yet darker :). They were in a box in the car and I compared the two and everyone liked the Black Chrome.

Hope to see you guys today

Hey Tim,

About your Black Chrome Grills, you said they were in a box in the car? Was wondering if you knew where you got them from? I'm looking to get the chrome for the kidney grills darker and havent had any luck finding a place that will do it for me.

She looks great MPRESIV. Avus is my favorite blue to be laid on an M car (either E34, E36 or E39), and it looks great with the angel eyes. Not sold on the black kidneys, but the second ones you put on look a lot better than the firsts!
:cheers:

Well, I just went and looked at the box they came in and all the "brand" names were cut off the box. Seems kinda odd to me but these fit like a champ and look great. Here are a few pictures. Sorry I could not help more.

Thanks Tim!
That is exactly what I want to do with my kidney grills. I looked at the ebay link and it doesnt look to be dark chrome like yours, just gunmetal paint looking grills. Ah well, at least I know it exists. You are the only person that I've seen with dark chrome and not dark paint on their kidney grills.

Mpressiv,
The glossy painted grills are definitely better looking and I'm loving the DDEs. Sorry for jacking the thread =).

Ronnie, it was very coincidental that my wife and I saw you and your beautiful dark blue M5 the other day - and only a couple of blocks from our house.. I had seen your car at the ACC Exotic car show before the new wheels and the difference is amazing!

Good job!

Beautiful car Mpresiv. Are those the hella angel eyes with the e46 ccfl ring kit?
This is the projector39 from Umnitza, the DDE Lightning Plus rings already pre-wired to the headlights.
