Here are some pics of my '08 Space Gray. Let me know what you guys think.
So far:
CF Vorsteiner Vented Hood
Hartge Front Lip
RPI Scoops
Charcoal Filters removed
BMC filter replacements
Passport Radar (also have a V1, but had lots of false alarm problems with it, which one do y'all think is better?)

Yet to come:
Hamann Roof Spoiler
15% tint
Evosport/Rogue Pulley
DSC off
Some sort of pedals (suggestions?)
Angel Eyes (if Umnitza or AngelBright ever get back to us!)

Anything else y'all would suggest I do?

I'm really digging it!

My thoughts: Lowered a little, new wheels, and definitely those Angel Eyes will make it insanely cool.

A friend of mine has the passport 9500 on the dash and he swears by it. I have the V1 (hardwired next to the mirror for looks and cord management) and really like it also. I think it is, for the most part, personal preference for which detector suits you best. Do you have the update for the V1?

the hood looks flush. How was the hood's fitment? Any gap? I have seen several vosteiner hoods in person, and the some of the fitment especially the gap between the front grill just turn me off. But your looks nice and tight.

Hey Zac I tried to send you a PM but your user name can not be found so I have to respond. This is not what I wished to do since I stated not to participate.
I must inform you of your incorrect statement. I beg to differ but you do not have the fastest E60 M5.
My M5 has run a 12.1 sec 1/4 mile w/ a trap speed of 123 mph. This is on pure motor.
Here are a couple of runs for your review.

There are no competition tires in 20". HRE is building me a rear set in 18" that will clear my aftermarket Brembo brakes.

I am actually upset because I broke my word about posting in this forum ever again. I had to correct the record.

I think Zac stated that his 12.13 is "stock" M5. But good to see you respond, M5Ranger. We need find or post something to lure you back to the board more often.:blink:

Nicely done ranger, but like keang said that's stock times (Resonators removed). The times with mods are also in the sig. :thumbsup:

Also, just so you know there are several M5's hitting 11.9's on motor now, and one that has gone mid 11's on Nitrous.

Guys,
Thanks for all of the comments! It's nice to get some positive feedback. I meant to put the H&R springs on my "yet to come," but forgot at the last moment. I definitely think I need those too!

Keang: The hood actually did not fit flush at first, but when I took my RPI scoops to get installed, the dealer didn't feel comfortable putting all of that stress on the kidney grills and removed the front bumper. When they put it back on, they adjusted it to get a nice, flush fit.
