How fantastic that can do that level work. Also it's obviously a hobby you take great pleasure in. It must like therapy from the day to day stress of a work.
Congratulations. I wish take on a project like you did, so methodically well planned.

BTW, what was your total expenditure? Did the seats come out of an e60? What wheels are those? And how much time did you spend?

Thanks.. You're right, the project is a therapy. The wheels are Rondell D58 with 8,5x18 235/40 ZR 18 in front and 10x18 in the rear with 265/35 ZR 18, bought from GS bildeler in Norway. The seats is not from E60 but an wrecked E39 540iA. My total expenditure right now is about 25.000 USD (only the car) and totally with those mods about 31.000 USD.. Norway is expensive.. Then you can see how much i paid for my 08 520dAT LCI.. 125.000 USD.....!!:!:!!!

Cool mod!

So how do you control those head-rests? Did you have to fit an additional button to the seat or are the controls on the head rest itself?

Thank you guys. No, its the OEM button for the backrest, like the button at the E60/E61 electrical seats..
