Meet VENOM; Alpine White 08 E60 M5



I created this thread to document the build and keep you guys updated with pictures. It's currently at THE SHOP for a complete repaint and minor body work. Moe and his team were also responsible for the Yellow G-Powered E60 M5 @ SEMA which belongs to MFEST Founder, Chris Naguit. STAY TUNED

- SWAG ON BOARD

Ordered:
- Proto-type MFEST Coilovers
- Meisterschaft GT2 Race Exhaust courtesy of GT Haus
- Radenergie front lip courtesy of WPI
- CF fender grills
- Blacked out badges
- CF kidney grills
- DPE Wheels





Past projects:

1st project - Valentina - E46 325Ci w/ 3.0L engine swap


2nd Project - Victoria - E60 545i

Looking good Benjo. Glad to see you post your build thread here. I did not know you are get getting your rear widen. Are you doing something similar to John Morgan Evans? Your ride will be sick once completed. :eek:

I'm planning to keep the OEM look so we're just planning to extend the rear fenders...very similar to the Yellow G-Powered M5 linked above.

Thanks Jay...I know most peeps on here aren't a fan of 21" and widening the rear, but hopefully they'll still appreciate this build
Where did you order the coilovers.
Send me a PM for details. A friend of mine knows someone from a well established manufacturing company that's planning to enter the European market...this exhaust would be one of their first products.
Nice lip! Looks freaking gigantic!
LOL thanks....it's the same lip on John Morgan Evan's pearl white M5
very nice AW beast!
Thank you :M5thumbs:
