    How much did you pay for that glass sunroof and where did you get it? Is it the factory one? - JT

    1) Glass sunroof is factory. First I have ever seen. Kind of nice I guess. I'm not really a sunroof person. Frankly, I'd rather have the additional headroom. 6'4" tall.

    2) I guess that Toronto might be a little in the rust belt. I doubt that makes any difference however. The front brakes on an M5 are the hardest to get. Seems to me that it looked like Bilstein shocks in those struts. My feeling was that for a few hundred bucks, you might be able to swap the whole strut package right into a car as it is. Not much to lose.

    Re-looked at that front/rear suspension. The only thing rusty is the brake rotors. Park your car in any rainy climate for a couple days and look at your brake rotors. Look just like these. Just paint the hats with caliper paint and run them. Confirmed Bilstein shocks/struts. Guy apparently also has the M5 sway bars and a diff there. Probably a 3.91 LSD.
