Sorry they are two different cars, the first one is my old 540i in Sienna Red and the second one is my newer one in helrot red. I accidentally posted the old one..sorry, but I do plan on painting the new trim on the helrot. I know there is a lot of argument about leaving them black but for me I like the look of all being painted.

Not bad for a 6/2001 build.
Please post pics of your cars, mods etc...cheers to one of the best cars BMW ever produced!

Your 540-6 is absolutely immaculate. I wish I could just take all the bits off of your car and stick 'em on mine . How did you manage to fit the double piped Dinan exhaust through the M-tech rear bumper? My next major purchase for my car will be a new hood and M5 front bumper, but I'm hesitant to get the M rear bumper for fear of my Dinan exhaust not fitting in the gap.
