What I would like to find...

Is grey M badged gauge inserts that are marked for a 540i redline. Find silver and white, but never the M5 grey color.

Those rings do look better than most of the ones I have seen on eBay.

I like that Smart Tire install in the ashtray. Looks like it was built for it.

May look into that. Too bad there is no one in this area that is really innovative with such.

So...considering giving this a try since that is about the only option my 03 540iA didn't come with that I want.

Anyone put a set of Sumitomo HTR z3's on a big 5? I had 25k on the set on my 911 and they were great. Even in the torrential downpours we get occasionally here in NC.

Or even...

Taking a small flat head screwdriver and heating the tip. Stick it in the plastic to melt and then cool and solidify around it. Should be able to turn it out then.

Wow...what a cool thing you guys are doing

I am new to the BMW boards but have been on the Porsche boards for a while. Have yet to find this on them.

Would you mind running the VIN WBAEU33472PF70288 ?

Thanks,
