Lamin-x man. $15 and they're very high quality. I got it for fog light protection because I've cracked a few, I decided to just get the yellow tint. I like the smoked ones too

It definately will. Its a very very thick, tough vinyl. It is literally, a light guard that just has a yellow tint. Its not just a thin film covering, those things are super meaty and i only got the 12mil. they make 40mil incase you drive in an area where bird strike is an issue lol

^^ That is probably the best interior I've seen! Super clean. What steering wheel is that? Not 100% sure I dig the square mirror though- is that custom?

Thanks for the link. i need to get some custom made up to protect my bonnet and front lip from stones, and my rear bumper for cargo. just had my car painted! im sure getting them custom locally will be cheaper though

what is that rectangle piece by your rear view mirror? my E34 doesnt have that, but it doesnt have a sunroof either, is it the cover for the sunroof motor?

I imagine that might be an easy thing to swap on any e34 if it can be found, can anyone verify this? I saw a car for sale in Alberta yesterday with this wheel. I think it would be an awesome upgrade over my original four spoke steering wheel, it is a little sportier, but not trying to be the ///M that it isn't. Or do the e34 M5's have different steering wheels?

Sweet looking for sure, but ..... then you'd have no airbag. I'm a former paramedic and ER nurse and I have seen countless lives saved by airbags. I personally won't sacrifice the safety for the cool factor. But, to each his own.

whats the difference between M5 and 540i brakes? my understanding is they are the same as each other, as well as the big engined E32s....
