pull rod and sway bars

Rotor and calipers, rear hub need to be replace with the ones on the m5.

Have you looked into upgrading to slotted/drilled rotors, ceramic pads, and ss brake hoses? Makes a big difference while keeping all your oem xi parts.

I just purchased an e60 M5 rear swaybar for my 2010 535xi Sport! Will be installing it shortly. Also, I bought a set of e60 M5 wheels,....they're going on too once the correct size tires are purchased.

Future plans:
Larger FMIC
Charge pipe
DICs
Down pipes,....possibly, but only if I can go with larger CATs downstream! (Car must be able to past emissions in VA).
MHD Stage 2 tune

Edit: I'm somewhat building the 2010 535 version of the 2018 F90 M5,...but of course, only in 535xi flavor!
