Calipers after 4 coats of paint. Waiting for my M logo vinyl stickers to get in, then going to apply the stickers and then spray the clear coat.

Anthony,

Looks really good so far! Please post pictures of all your mods. I absolutely love the color combo on your M6!

David i appreciate that. Will do i will be finishing up all the mods Friday except the eisenmann exhaust which is getting installed Saturday. More pics to come.

Db750 06-25-2012 12:34 PM

That exhaust is going to sound great! I'm still undecided if I am going to upgrade mine, but the eisenmann is at the top of my list.

I just noticed you are over on M6 board as well. My username is "CatsFan".

Keeping with the black theme I would also do the side gills or whatever they are called in black and also pick up the color matched reflectors for the front which really helps to clean it up. Since my car is black I just wrapped mine in some gloss black vinyl I had in the garage, but getting rid of the orange really makes the headlamps pop.

Jackson1019 06-25-2012 12:47 PM

V-10 500 HP exhaust was a must for me. I gotta hear that baby scream to get the full ear to ear grin going lol. for me it came down to the Tubi Rumore or the Eisenmann and seeing that the Tubi is so much more expensive I just went with the Eisenmann.

Ye sir I am on the M6 board as well. This forum doesn't get to much action :(

Your talking about the Orange on the front headlights correct?

Db750 06-25-2012 01:38 PM

You make a good point about hearing the V10 scream. That's one of the best parts about driving this car. You don't necessarily have to go super fast, just rev it up past 6k rpm and the thing sounds amazing. I look forward to hearing a video of your exhaust. :thumbup:

Yes I am referring to the little orange strip on the front bumper. I did mine for basically free with some old vinyl I had laying around the garage.

Jackson1019 06-25-2012 01:44 PM

Yes sir you got it. The downshifts sound good also. I will post a video when i get them installed. Video should b coming this weekend or early next week.

What is even the purpose of that orange strip? Just a reflector or what?

Db750 06-25-2012 01:46 PM

Yes, just a reflector. I think they are only required in the US.

Jackson1019 06-25-2012 01:51 PM

Well if the Europeans don't need em either do we!:D

Jackson1019 06-25-2012 01:59 PM

just got off the phone with the dealership and they want $156.96 for 2 reflectors painted white! Outrageous but probly just gunna go ahead an do it. Any better ideas?

Db750 06-25-2012 03:18 PM

Damn, that's way too much! I would either search online (eBay or a forum sponsor), have a body shop paint them, or you can use this DIY I found. He bought new reflectors for $23 each and painted them, but I would just remove the ones you have, paint, and reinstall.

Block off plates BMC filters, charcoal delete, RPI Scoops and the matte black kidney grilles all installed.

The aftermarket Grilles were a lot tighter fitting than the OEM chrome grilles that came with the car. I had to bust out my handy Dremel and do a little modifications to the clips on the grille. A little pain in the butt. All is good though. :thumbup:

Db750 06-27-2012 03:51 PM

Looks great! :thumbup:

Db750 06-27-2012 03:54 PM

How much of a difference do you notice with the plates/filters/scoops? I will probably pick up a set in the next few weeks. I pulled my charcoal filters, but honestly I didn't notice any difference.

Jackson1019 06-28-2012 05:49 AM

Thanks. I havent been able to drive her yet she is still sitting on jacks. I'm waiting on my wheels to be finished. Should get them today and be driving her tomorrow but I will let you know if I can feel any difference.

When you start it up it seems to sound a little better to me. Slight notice of an increase in power and quickness.

Been a crappy weekend out in the Houston area so I haven't been able to wash her up like I want to but here is a couple pictures of the beast with the new matte black bmw wheels and all the mods installed.

Did you get the e-race put on? I have one on mine. The sound is EPIC.

Jackson1019 07-01-2012 03:30 PM

It was suppose to ship last Friday but got delayed a week. The guys at IND the north American distributor for Eisenmann told me they are backed up because they are making the exhaust for the new M6 model. Suppose to b in the states on Monday and to me in Houston by Thursday. I had to reschedule my appointment with EVS motors in Houston to this Saturday the 7th. Can't wait to hear how it sounds driving the car.

Jackson1019 07-26-2012 02:24 PM

quick video of the Eisenmann Race exhaust. Will post a better video in the next couple of days. My buddy had trouble keeping up in his F-150 lmao
