LaLaRay your Black M5 looks sick. Probably the nicest classyist looking E39 I have ever seen. Can I use your car for my screen backdrop? That way I can drool every time I use my computer. Do you have tow M5's? How do you debadge them? I would like to do that to mine since it has some cool mystery to it I think.

I debadged my car with my finger and that took about 3 hours of just rubbing. I did my friends in 5 mins. used floss to get the numbers off and then put gas on a towel and it whipped right off with a couple of rubs

Damn Dennis, what front bumper and suspension do you have on your car? Looks really clean and nice.
Also have always loved those spoked deep dish rims.
