    Default Cleaned her up and took some pics

    Finals are done, the move to my new house is complete, and my M-tech II wheel is in. I cleaned up the car, went for a nice little drive, and took some pics. Consider these the "before" pictures. Towards the end of summer I'll have the afters

    Suspension, wheels, and a DSLR camera will make me as happy as ever. I think I might try the engine delete mod on my car to make it more lightweight and faster. It's the only hope this car has

    Default Thats really nice.

    SC David,

    Do I spy a bootlid spoiler in post #2 third shot?

    Did it come with that or did you purchase that and have it fitted (or do it yourself)?

    If it does have one, and you did fit it, what is it and from where did you get it?

    Your 5er really does look very nice, I wish I had the time to keep mine looking like that.

    Damn. I'm jealous.

    What suspension and wheels are you getting?

    BTW...bring it back this summer, so we can really do a number on that paint.

    Thanks! I got the spoiler a few years ago off of eBay. It doesn't fit perfectly and hangs over each side of the trunk a tiny bit, but overall I think it flows with the lines of the car very well. It came unpainted, but I took it to a paint shop my friend worked at and he got the paint code and did it for free. Shouldn't cost much more than $50 to get one painted though. It sticks on with simple double sided tape.

    I keep leaning towards different suspension combos...so I guess I won't really know until the time comes. Wheels will be...something OEM methinks

    A second detail would be fun. We gotta get those swirl marks off completely. We should go for a drive sometime soon if you get the chance.

    You've got a talent for taking pictures. Ever considered taking a career path in something graphical?
