Only real updates are the myriad of parts I've been amassing for a refresh. Once that's done, it's tires and paint correction and then off to the races!

Thank you as well! I am very partial to Blue, but I couldn't pass on this combo.

Indeed. I'll be correcting that paint in no time.

Thank you for the well wishing! The two compliment each other.

Welcome and awesome car!

2001 M5 - Carbon black on black (purchased 2-2016)
- Tune, E60 SSK, Eibach rear swaybar, Bilstein B6s, reinforced diff mount, Infinity 6.5" speakers, V1
2003 Tahoe Z71 - 600hp, E85, supercharged, cammed and bolted
- Much faster (and less reliable) than the M5

What is this hose? I don’t remember seeing that when plenum was off.

Are you doing all this work yourself?

Nice to see you got an E39 M5! I got my first one about 1.5 years ago and have ended up with two more. Easily one of my favorite ///M models and I find myself enjoying driving it more than my E46 M3 for daily driving.

How was the throttle position sensor install? I got a P1637 code the other day and my OBD reader said the TPS.

Where are you reading up on it? I couldn't find anything that explained much and most pictures taken via photobucket have disappeared.
