Lord Vader has arrived... Pics...

Haven't really had a chance to get her out and with all that's going on, a bit focused elsewhere. However, Lord Vader is beautiful...

Interior shots tomorrow!!

Stay healthy my friends!!

For second I thought there was yet another member that calls their car Vader but I then realized you have a thread below too.

Congrats on the ride--- strong!!!

Very small world! My neighbor has a modded M3 and we're going to attempt a short ride out on the next nice day, assuming we're not on a stricter lock down (and the wife signs off - we have a 4yr old and 5 month old that she takes care of as I'm working from home)....

I have a Singapore Grey car and find it a 'funny' colour when adding mods. I was never sure about the CF grills, but matched with the front splitters, they look great on your car.

I'm not a fan of the splitters/canards, so have left my grills gloss black, but if I was to add them, I would change them after seeing yours.

Are you considering CF mirror caps or side blades?

I currently have added MP CF rear diffuser and pro-spoiler, plus a small Sterckenn lip.

Love the color. I just switched from a SG F10 M5 to the F90. I also had a MCB M5 prior to SG but the SG got so much more attention. I think it was because I had the black wheels and grills making it look "meaner." I consider the blues to be louder colors, but they don't attract the same attention.

You can control the pops and cracks by driving in Sport or comfort mode ... or depressing the valve button. I drive in this mode to avoid waking up the whole neighborhood and then go into Sport + / valves on for the rest of the ride.

This car can be very quiet.

Let's see the photos. I love the way she came out so always looking for new perspectives.

I also wanted to leave some gloss black to match the trim but you never know when it comes to CF. I added CF to the shifter and was sent the wrong CF trim for the steering wheel - once I get it exchanged I'll take interior pics. Just don't mind the car seats...

It is lowered. Went with the H&R F90 Sport Springs. Some folks swear by the H&R M550xi Sport Springs and I must admit, the M550i springs give a slightly more aggressive look but I'm very happy with how this came out!

Love the paddle shifters. I purposefully opted against any driver assist. I'm thinking this is the last version of the M5 that won't have "controls" built in... Great combination! Enjoy it and stay healthy!
