1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Congrats on the M5. Put back the stock grill, buy yourself a nice set of wheels and sell those painted monstrosities and you've got yourself a keeper.

    I know I talked shit about your zhp but I love that colour. I love the colour of teh M5 too. Not really into the black wheels but if you put a "hotwheels stripe" on them they will look pretty good. If not then join a M5 board and trade some young kid for his standard polished ones. The black kidneys need to stay put. Let me test drive it. Get rid of the tint.

    Congrats, GF! Someone I knew at work had that M5, and in Interlagos, and I loved it. Inspired me to get an Interlagos car, too. I personally like the tint; do what you like, don't mind the haters. Have fun, be safe.

    Congrats on the M5, GF. Do not get any more tickets! And please do not get a custom plate like you had for the ZHP. Please.

    Grabbing drinks and food and heading to a slightly stoopid concert in a bit so I'll address everyone's comments tomorrow, but just wanted to drop this cold-start sound clip off.

    Didn't rev it too much, for obvious reasons. Sounds best with headphones on!

    BTW, began searching for some wheels for my car and have some ideas but wanted to see if you guys had any recommendations. Will be interesting to see how all our tastes differ!

    BBS RS LM would look good on it. But they're pretty expensive. 5 double spoke or mesh wheels usually look good on E60s.

    When you're done getting mere opinions just ask idfnl for the One True Answer (OTA).

    Sorry, didn't mean to imply. I also am not a huge fan of Interlagos over black. Sliver rocks with it.
    <sniff> I have a custom plate, sniff.

    :laugh: Please tell me it's more original than the model of your car and the year of your birth! I just always get a chuckle from personal plates that say things like, "RED M3" or "MY 300Z."

    GF, thanks for the pics and update. I made my earlier post without realizing you had just posted what I had asked for.

    I have a soft spot for M5's, and yours is no exception. Glad to hear you're looking for wheels, may I suggest the stock ones or what you already have on it, but in silver?

    As I've posted before, you're gonna love this car. ENJOY!!!

    Yes! It is. I have some originality. Not much, but some.

    I am a fan of 20" Schnitzer type V's on e60 m5's, but they're incredibly pricey. I think people either love them or hate them, but I love them and they look fantastic in person. Just that all the other ACS mods for e60's are horrendous.
    Apart from the ACS wheels, no other mods besides a suspension and an exhaust needed. Second to the ACS's I like stock 19" M6 wheels. Anything else begins to look like its trying too hard, and few other companies make anything equal or better in quality to the stock M wheels
