||| Venom: E60 M5 Build Thread - HH - The Shop - STM - MFest - DPE - EuroTechniks |||

fanatics.....Picked this up a few days after I sold the VFE Stg II M3.

Meet VENOM; Alpine White 08 E60 M5

I created this thread to document the build and keep you guys updated with pictures. It's currently at THE SHOP for a complete repaint and minor body work. Moe and his team were also responsible for the Yellow G-Powered E60 M5 @ SEMA which belongs to MFEST Founder, Chris Naguit. STAY TUNED

Current mods:
- H&R springs
- Gloss black vinyl roof
- Macht Schnell pulleys
- 15% Huper Optik Ceramic tint courtesy of STM Solutions

- Proto-type MFEST Coilovers
- Meisterschaft GT2 Race Exhaust courtesy of GT Haus
- Radenergie front lip courtesy of WPI
- CF fender grills
- Blacked out badges
- CF kidney grills
- DPE Wheels

Past projects:

1st project - Valentina - E46 325Ci w/ 3.0L engine swap

2nd Project - Victoria - E60 545i

3rd Project - Vicious - E46 M3 Stage II VF



12/1 - GOING OUT 2 INCHES - finally got to cutting and pushing the fender using my friend's iForged as test fit wheels.

passenger rear

driver rear

Still needs a few more hours

2.5" out from OEM

MFEST Coilovers by Apexi

All primered up and ready for paint

OEM M5 wheels with 37MM spacers and 10mm of room left to the fender

FRESH OUT THE OVEN - decided to keep it AW

Sorry to keep everyone out of the loop...it' been so hectic lately with wedding plans, work, and trying to finalize this build....but without further adieu...

Painted the base of the mirrors gloss black

Shaved reflectors on the front bumper

Toyo T1Rs 255/30/21 & 295/25/21

Sorry for the long wait everyone...Finally picked up the car on Friday...got the wheels reassembled with a 4.5" lip downsized from a 5" lip. Meisterschaft GT2 exhaust was installed Friday morning...no joke, sounds like a Ferrari

Here are some iPhone pics before a complete write up and photoshoot

Arrival of the Meisterchaft GT2 exhaust last monday. Excellent craftsmanship and the customer service was nothing short of extraordinary. The section 3 piece fit like a glove once installed couldn't wait to let it RIP!!!

Once installed...

Before and After pic:

Next to my boy's Panny...also the owner of TheShop

Pic from last night at The W with a few friends

MFest coilovers will be installed on Monday followed by an alignment and oil change...stay tuned
