It's an '01 LeMans Blue M5. I've been wanting one of these for a while now and picked it up this summer. The wagon is my daily and I'm still having fun with it!

So how does the KW V3 ride on the wagon? Was it stock before the install?

2 base coats, 5 coats of color and pearl and they ended up doing about 7 layers of clear - expecting they will polish off at least 1 or 2 layers to bring to mirror finish

It was stock before, and with the adjustable bump and rebound i have it set almost perfect for daily driving and for the spirited drive on the weekend.

Very comfortable. Verrry comforatable versus all of my friends coilovers setups. They have Tien, BC, and Bilstien, but i also spent more time adjusting mine then they have.

I am very happy with them.

Hmm, the pics in the original post don't work anymore. That's a shame, I used to go there for ideas.
I'm just deciding between keeping the bumper mouldings body colour (white) or bringing it back to black for more OEM look

yep, I use mine for work all the time, this was hauled to a job I am working at. I like the trailer idea like you have but I dont have a great place to store a trailer most of the time when I am not using it, and so far the roof rack handles everything I have thrown at it.
