Hello, my name is Alex. I just purchased my first E60 M5! I came from a modded 335i. It is a beautiful Interlagos Blue with the SMGIII transmission which I am still getting used to all I have ever driven were manual cars. Excited to do some tasteful mods to the car!
A couple of quick pics not the best..

I had RB turbos on the 335i and meth etc.. so I still miss the torque, but this is a much better daily driver. And the top end punch is very nice, it keeps pulling when it is in it's power band it doesn't let up at all.

I'm going to try and not dump too much money into it. We will see though :3:
I removed the charcoal filters yesterday.
I ordered:
RPI scoops
BMC filters
Matte black kidney grille
LED license plate lights
Black ///M license plate frame
Extra quarts of oil!

I'm going to cut out the secondary cats and resonator and see how that sounds before I buy an exhaust.
Eurocharged tune with the handheld OBDII module.
Then probably some wheels, maybe lowering springs and definitely some spacers looks like it could use 20mm all around.

20mm will rub on stock wheels.

12mm or 15mm, depending on tire selection, will set the wheels flush.

Congrats again! You have the fastest color of m5. It is well documented :tonquesmilie:!

Yesss!! I love what you've planned. If you want it to sound nice and classy, cut off your mufflers as well. Get the Evolve tune instead though.
