Following the advice of this thread (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1195413#post1195413) I went to bmwusa.com website to the Build Your Own 530xit.

My jaw hit the ground when I saw that the M Retrofit kit was being offered for the E61 :thumbup:

Suddenly, only being offered one E61 model doesn't hurt so much when I think about ordering my next touring with an M Retrofit kit and wheels.

I realize you gotta be a touring lover to appreciate this, but this is AWESOME.

The way I read It. It is a parts department Item ONLY. NOT a factory install :cry: . But there is hope Maybe we are getting closer to FACTORY Option :mad:

But there is hope Maybe we are getting closer to FACTORY Option :mad: is the m sport kit purely cosmetic? why does it matter that it is a dealer installed option and not factory installed? my dealer said he would sell me accesories at cost. i have already spent enough on this wagon close to 55k!

I really like that look! :thumbup:

The E61 is already beautiful, but that really does it. Damn, a 535d Touring with that M stuff would be a dream to own ...

FYI, The M Retrofit kit comes primed and needs to be painted in the body color. Expect to pay over $3000 for kit/paint/installation....

too much $$ for me. on the bmwusa.com website it says 1650 for that option. where are you getting 3000?

it's unpainted so a body shop needs to paint the panels in your body color + installation.
