Your car is outstanding!!!

I highly recommend doing the MAF and the M60 (pre-vanos M62) intake manifold, with stage 5 SW it is a great improvement in throttle response.

Nice, looks awesome. Are those kidney grills black chrome? That Antrazit is my favorite trim too-- ahh the whole thing is sex

Why did you go with Dinan? Most choose them cause it interacts with the current warranty on their car.
Does Dinan still warranty the work they did on yours?

nice plate

Thanks! I got most of my parts in Munich and Berlin...I go to Europe a few times a month..so found some great stuff! Kidney grills I found in Hamburg, Germany...they are black chrome..my favorite look! I did DINAN as I just felt it was great quality..but I know you are paying for a name too...
I had an extended warranty....its out now..so these new parts are DINAN warranty covered, but only for the parts I believe.
