As the title says, I sold my E55 to a friend and thought I would go without a car for a while and just stick with my SUV. Well, needless to say that got old quick. About a month ago I picked up a 2007 Silverstone M6 (SMG) with full Indy leather, Premium Sound, satellite Radio, Soft close doors, Carbon Fiber, and HUD.

Here are a couple of very short videos taken last weekend...

Now, time to search for instructions to hardwire V1...

Congrats. Haha nice clip with the Smart.... although I must say, I'd never feel safe in that thing. Looks like you could just nudge it and it would completely lose control and kill the passengers (with maybe a scratch on the M lol).

Thanks all for the warm welcome!

Bonehead: The exhaust is stock for now, still thinking about the Eisenmann. Thanks for your help with my questions before purchase!

plastique999: Read through this post...

Basically this uses a wire from the interior lighting cluster for hot. You can use the screw that is exposed when the lighting cluster is popped open for the ground.

I used the wire shown in the picture of post #12. It worked just fine.
