||| 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

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!!!
