nothing crazy,tint, vinyl roof, drop, exhaust, chip, some cf goodies on the exterior, and maybe rims. The 550 is my DD so don't want to make it too crazy lol.

this is my other toy that i can go nuts with...

Awesome! Care to post some pics :P

About the m5 diffuser. Do you need to do any adjustment to the exhaust?

i'll post pics later today... and yes the exhaust needs to be adjusted. might have to go aftermarket though as the oem exhaust is pretty big and not much room for adjustment.

eisenmann i think is too big to adjust for the m5 diffuser. i know people with the 550's can't get it to work.

^Would you be interested in the Meisterschaft? I just got a pretty good deal from SonicMS out in cali and I just got the pipes installed but didn't install the wiring yet.

So far the exhaust sounds almost like a stock E60 550i (little deeper but not as high pitched) with the valves fully closed. I'll be installing the wiring on Monday and cant wait to hear it with the valves open.

I manage a hotel and come and go at all hours of the night so it's nice to have the option to make it quieter so I don't disturb customers at 2 in the morning.

i'm most likely going with an oem m5 setup. seems to me thats the best compromise of stock look with somewhat of an aggressive aftermarket sound.

Yeah! Ive seen people with 550i cant seem to make eisenmann fit to the m5 diffuser.

I've ordered the exhaust before I realize that the diffuser outlet is different from the mtech ones.

I'll see when I got back
