    Sterling Grey on Black leather :)

    So after driving to sacramento last weekend and back and in the rain a few times b4 that. the 5er was dirty as hell....i've been so busy the past few weeks haven't had time to give it a good bath....so today after mowing the lawn/fertilizing/cleaning the yard...then washing my wife's jetta....(it was filthy) and washing my camry.....i washed the 5er :)


    also i put a coat of optimum spray wax on it.I just ordered a bunch of Jeff's Werkstatt products which i will use to properly detail the car in a few weeks once i get everything:)

    oh and i used meguiar's endurance tire shine on the tires....

    anyways onto the pics...let the whoring of the pics begin!!!


    there's a bunch of em so i'm going to whore most of them :)


    here she is hangin out in the driveway....front end was full of bugs and wheels were filthy....

    the best thing about these wheels is they are super easy to clean AND i can get my hand behind the spokes too to clean the wheels PROPERLY...

    Very nice! Love the wheels, much easier to clean than typical BMW wheels.

    those wheels are by far one of the best OE designs of ANY company. one of my fav wheels, OE or aftermarket.

    car is completely stock

    only mods are

    1) hardwired Valentine One
    2) 20 gb phat noise mp3 player (replaced 6 disc changer)
    3) soon to be installed mbquart components

    other than those 3 things

    car is completely the way it came outta munich!

    these cars usually maxed out as far as performance once they roll off the factory floor...

    so adding intake/exhaust etc etc doesn't gain you much

    so its not worth it in my opinion to spend the $$ on that

    when the suspension needs to be replaced i may replace it with a full stage 2 dinan suspension...

    also i'm planning on keeping the car for a while so i may super charge it...thats the ONLY WAY I'LL get some real power...

    dinan's s/c kit which runs around 15k installed will bring me up to 450hp
