Very nice, congrats.

Looks great. Imperial Blue is a great color. If you can, make sure you get a good polish to take out any swirls and topcoat it with high quality sealant. that will help with swirls.

Beautiful, congrats! I guess you didn't like waiting to get a little more power ;)

Chase3006 03-31-2013 05:31 AM

This color looks so much better without orange reflectors in front.

Nope, Had the Stage 1 in my 2010 750. The Dinan makes it a different car. Night and day. I have read on the forum that people are not sure after they have it installed. Put the car in Sport+, mash it to the floor.... Hello!

Bang and Olufsen center channel

Great! Can you take more pictures of the seats, I have never seen nappa leather in the 5 series.

spadae2 03-31-2013 02:44 PM

Sure, I did not do the ventilated seats. Had them my M5 and 750 never felt it was worth it. The feel and softness of the nappa it what counts. Pictures do not justify.

Really nice looking. Mind if I ask what it set you back? I'm looking to do the same to my jet black 550i. Nice ride!!

spadae2 04-18-2013 06:57 PM

Using eBay through BMW dealers , $4400, bought new factory TMPS sensors and stems. Keeping the 19s for winter.

Looks great. Love the specs!

Does that center speaker lower when car or audio is off?

Tommy/// 04-19-2013 11:44 AM

Nice job. Looks great.

CTSoxFan 04-19-2013 02:00 PM

Did you hardwire in your Escort? Where did you tap in to for power?

Yes the center channel lowers when the audio is off. Also all three tweets have a small LEDs that you can see at night. You are able to turn off and adjust brightness.

As for the escort, it is hard wired as it must be since is it hidden. 2 laser up front, 1 rear. Radar upfront and a GPS antenna in the rear window.

I had a BMW tech help me because you will never be able unless you know everything goes back together correctly.

OK, yours is a more complex system than mine. In the X5 I have an 8500 hard wired and had to tap power in the sunroof as the front fuse box didn't have any switched 12V (they are all in the cargo area). I was wondering if the 550 was the same...

Looks sharp! Congrats!

New Photos with 312s. Drives night and day with the PSS tires, a different car. Smooth, Grip, quiet, no more BANGS over bumps. No problems with staggered setup on xDrive.
