Nice to see some familiar faces from other forums.

Decided to buy a 19 M5 Comp, murder spec inside and out.

Car should be here next week. Ordered some Ind side reflectors and those mesh thingies for the rear reflectors.

Don't know much about what is possible or needed mod wise with these cars but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Cheers!

Congrats brother!

Came from a 15' F10 M5 BSM / Black and loved it!

Not sure how you feel about PPF but it's a must have IMO on dark cars and will make your life a lot easier in terms of maintaining the paint. BSM's super difficult to maintain.

Enjoy!!!

Thanks.

Yeah I'm definitely PPFing the front facing bits and ceramic coating the whole car, that should keep most of the nonsense at bay. Honestly my biggest worry is what's happened to the car since it's been sitting at the dealer. I bought it off inventory so I didn't get a chance to tell them not to touch the paint during PDI. Hopefully they won't have messed up the paint too much with their wash job and I won't have to have it corrected.

Not my car, but I'm going to keep posting gratuitous pics of others like it till it gets here.

Ordered 15/12 spacers, along with the already ordered color matched reflectors I think that’s enough before the car gets here next week.

Reason dictates that I wait to see and hear it before getting a different exhaust and/or springs. I’m not a fan of reasonable.

Boy, waiting is the worst part.

Stock exhaust sucks IMO
I see you are gone some mods, do you have something planned or still looking?

The only two additional mods I'm considering are an exhaust and lowering.

I just have to see how it sits and sounds first tho.

I couldn't stand the stock exhaust so I end up going extreme. Lol
Full Eisenmann exhaust including both down pipes
Also with stance it doesn't look good at all in stock form
I went with H&R Springs but they advertised front drop they said front and back 1.2" which is not even close
Mine front was 7/8 and back only 3/8
You can use H&R Springs from M550 which is much better
I will change mine to KW HAS

Is yours a comp?

If I weren't getting a comp, a drop and exhaust would be mandatory.
I just don't know if they are needed on the comp as it sits lower and has the sport exhaust.

I'll know for sure in a few days when it gets here.

Mine is not CP, I got mine early last year.
For me competition it's not low enough and it doesn't sound as good.
It could be perfect for you, everyone has different taste and likes.
Anyway.... enjoy your car this weekend!!
It's a killer ride

I have a Comp and already went to KW HAS and ditched the wheels LOL; the exhaust is not really too bad. I may do an x-pipe and see how it sounds but coming from an Akra on my F10 M5 I feel I will more than likely swap it out soon.

Mine is a non comp but since its a First Edition I get the CE exhaust; its just not enough and you know great exhausts sir coming from all the GT cars at Porsche and the E63S etc. You will like it for a few weeks cause its new and different but the piped in sound will get old and you will yearn for real sound that mates up with your acceleration and downshifts.

Black just looks so good! Congrats!

Couple other mods to consider:

- Suspension (Springs | Coils)
- Exhaust (Axle Back | Cat-Back | Upper + Lower Downpipes)
- Aero

Drop and some spacers on stock is a great look, if you need some direction or assistance feel free to reach out

Hey Justin,

I'm the one looking at the remus that Vic texted you about a couple of days ago. I'm going to reach out to you this coming week after I figure out what I really want to do mod wise.
