We are fortunate to have an E61 now as our build out car. In it's standard form, it looks like any other steel grey wagon with tan interior. Over the coming weeks/months, we will try to transform this car into an M5 replica (but will NOT remove the batch).

OE Option:
Factory All-Weather Floor Mats
Premium Package
Cold Weather Package
Navigation (DVD)
PDC
17"


Our Parts:
Already installed
M5 Tech Bumper ($350 with PDC)
E60 Standard Round Fogs ($45 in stock)
HID Canbus 8000K Kit ($125 in stock)
V4 LED LIC

Planned
M5 side skirts (Umnitza/Replica)
M5 rear quad wagon bumper (factory)
E60 Quad Exhaust (Umnitza)
E60 Orion V2 Kit
M6 19X8.5 All Around
JB3 System Stage 3
V4 LED Interior Array Set
More TBA

Here is the first part of the setup:




Special First shout out to Mark @ Federal Auto Body here in Concord, best quality painting and good pricing.

Suggestion are welcome for items you'd like to see installed or discussed re: wagons or 535.

You're right, OEM M5 bumper doesn't have foglights, but mnitza replica M5 bumper has.

meh... not original... from what I remember, you guys offer completely custom forged wheels - now that would be something I'd like to see. With some sick new/original design! M6 wheels are like a safe bet - look great, proven, etc etc. But been done, so not surprised

kidding aside, good point, but our custom wheels take 8 weeks to build, so it's best to get something on the car right away and when the tires wear out get the wild ones on there when we line up all the magazine shoots...which coincidentally, they will prefer the m6 wheels rather than the wild ones.

Some designs that are being considered are:
