lol. Interesting picture of me.
I bought the projectors from lightwerkzWhat's the difference in the euro dash vs us dash? Can you also tell me where you bought your headlights? I need to order a set for mine.
Hmm. Idk exactly when the date changeover occured.You must have later build headlights. My 2002 lights were still an easy open affair. I have a 10/01 car and lights were date stamped 7/01. It seems like the middle of the 2002 MY is when the switch was made.
Not true. Remember mine looked just like your but ended up being bakeable?... I feel like maybe some 2002 M5's got the bakeable treatment?Hmm. Idk exactly when the date changeover occured.
Very easy way to tell:
If the cap on top is black, they can be baked open.
If the cap on top is clear, they can't.
... I think.

I've been wanting to do that conversion. From what I've heard there is really no downside and it looks way better flowing into the door panels and gives more leg room.
The whistles go woooooo!Replaced my windshield gasket, though I didn't take any pics. It was clearly original before-- came out in chunks. Car is much quieter at 100+ now. I was having a whistle ~115mph before that got really annoying-- caused me to either speed up to 120 or slow to 110 whenever I hit it.
It is.Is the windshield surround gasket a similar process as the rear window surround?
Thanks!Euro dash is a nice upgrade. Friend did it to his and its a world of difference. Honestly thought it was more work that it is, lol.
I just read every post...great build. Makes me wish I had more time to work on mine.
It's quiet. Very, VERY quiet.Hi I love your thread this thread.
I just wanted to ask your experience of removing the Tubi Exhaust and going back to standard, I have the exact same Tubi setup on an M5 I have just purchased. I love the car but I’m just not into the loud exhaust, above 2,000rpm the sound is fin but around 1,800rpm the drone is just too much for me.
What’s your experience of going back to standard?, I ask as I have never driven a standard M5
