Hello everyone,

I've been a member of this forum for a bit now but primarily read instead of post. I thought I'd share a little project I've been working on. It's still a work in progress but it's coming along.

As a quick intro, I am coming from an E60 545i. It was an SMG, almost fully loaded E60 minus rear sunshades and rear fold down seats. It was a blast to drive and I really really miss the V8, but due to my change in commute I decided to switch to a car that had more cargo room and better traffic drivability. Oddly enough I purchased a 6 speed car to drive in traffic haha.

Here are some shots of the E60:





Here is a sneak peak of the new project (special thanks to LTBMW aka LTMW)


ALL OEM body parts. More to come...

Update: 1-3-13

Happy New Year fellas. I'm just barely recovering from the holidays but wanted to share a few photos I took with my iPhone.

There are a few things I wanted to point out:
- There was a slight miscommunication and the OEM side markers were put on WITH the M badges though that was not my original intention. I am not trying to fool anyone into thinking this is an M car so those will be filled in to be gloss black.
- This is my DAILY DRIVER so mods will come in batches.
- These photos serve to document my journey with this car.
- I have owned this car now for 10 months.
- This stage is basically starting from "OEM"
- Color is Porsche GT3 RS Gray Black if anyone is interested.

BEFORE:




AFTER:




19x10 et17 (Reverse Face) BBS LM Test Fit (Front and Rear):

So the e91 is yours! Beautiful looking car man. You definitely beat me to the punch as this was a dream of mine to do.

Can't wait to see a final product!
