If you don't mind my asking, how long did it take from order to delivery???

I understand that you're in Hawaii, so maybe a better questions is, how much additional time did it take for delivery considering you ordered an individual color???

And I'm assuming this cost the standard $5k?

Just curious, as I may go this route myself...

Thanks and congrats!!!!
Thank you! Placed the order in August. Takes about an extra month to get to Hawaii once it makes it California. The car actually was scheduled for an end of November production, but a slot opened up I was able to take. So 5ish months or so give or take. Yeas price was the standard 5k for the paint.

A green M2 could be pretty cool. You can always wrap it.

I would spec exactly the same as yours!
Well done
Thank you. The e46 was such a great car. Only professional shoots I had of her was with the show wheels on. Here is a pic of that:

Finally, a proper F90 M5 build underway. I can not wait to see how this plays out kimo, I know it will be sick!

Funny, I had an X5M when you had yours and it was a huge inspiration. Then I moved to an F10 M5 a couple of months after you.. Really wanting a new X5M this summer but I have a feeling you'll change my mind haha.

This car looks amazing. Does anyone know what the difference is between British Racing Green and Oxford Green? Is BRG slightly lighter and less metallic than Oxford Green?

Thanks for the compliments! Nice to hear we have similar taste in cars. The next round of mods should be something for you then. Do stick around!

Thanks! Yeah OGM2 is metallic and I believe BRG is not. Also BRG gets very light in the sun. OGM2 does not, just get's a more rich looking green depending how the metallic flakes hit the sun. In low light conditions it just looks blackish.

Thanks! Definitely keeping her in the garage when not driving. A good ceramic coating will help too.

Mod update:

Car is lowered and aligned. There is also this thing known as feel back in the steering wheel. Not as much as in the previous generations, but at least there is something now. Car turns in very nicely with no roll and is still surprisingly comfortable. I was expecting to loose some comfort, but it really isn't that bad at all. Still on stock settings with the v4s for now.

A little bit of wow here. There is no way to adjust the rear rebound without removing the shock so I don't think I'm going to be messing with the rebound. On the f10 you could just remove the rear speakers and gain access. Not so for the f90. Everything is completely covered. There is not even a hole in the shock tower to feed an adjustment line through.

Also since lowered here are a bunch of pics. Alignment rack and then at a dead end by my house. All with the new iphone and I suck at photos. Good thing about a journal though is you can post junk pics as much as you like.

Thanks! No spacers. I try not to use them if I don't have to. I'm hoping the wheel wait won't be that much longer so I'll deal with the absurd sunk for now. If anything it shows just how much more space there is to fit a nice wide wheel.

Mod update:

So I have been receiving the next round of mods from IND over the past couple weeks. Aesthetics and exhaust. Wheels are supposed to show up today. Plan is to fit the exhaust this weekend and then the bodykit after that. Tires are on backorder so wheels will have to wait.

Plan for this build is a homage to the older style of modding where body color and clean wheels that match the car were the goal. Think Alpina and you will a have a good idea of the goal. With that in mind the aesthetics had to take a clean approach. As such all trim has been black chromed to match what carbon fiber there is and the 3D design kit has been body painted. Well, except for an exposed cf line that goes around it. IND took some nice pics of the kit before shipping:



They really did an excellent job of the paint scheme here. Plan is to install it next week sometime. Had to do a mock fit of the lip, couldn't help it:




In the meantime I installed the simple exterior parts: front rear reflectors, roundels, kidney trim, and M5 trunk badge.







Exhaust looking nice on the ground waiting for the weekend. Eisenmann race with Eisenmann secondary downpipes both in their ceramic coating. Carbon fiber black chrome tips are in the boxes. Yes that is a F10 system behind it that is also for sale:
