Thanks guys for all the love! I really appreciate it! I am getting some more mods soon, like smoked tails, VMR V710s, and some DINAN badges and stickers. And if I'm lucky I may be getting some rewored headlights done by OnEighty or ACM!
(and maybe some new bumpers/lips/spoilers)

Let's make it COTM! or at least GT of the month ::
Being one of the first to take delivery of the GT in 12/09 also one of the first to have a DINAN Flash on a GT (Stage 1 at the time) I commend you. I sold mine in September 2011 but I have fond memories and would do another I like what I see congrats. Ohh by the way I know folks don't expect that kind of performance out of something that big when you blow by them

Thanks guys. Still more to come. I'm trying to work Duke Dynamics to get a custom bodykit for the GT, let's hope all works out. Show them what car they are making it for by keeping this thread alive!

To be honest, I think the interior would have looked best in red (most aggressive color combo), but i had to settle for the popular (but also quite classy) Ivory White/Black. I still like it, since it makes the car feel roomier and aesthetically pleasing, rather than all black where everything is the same.

Just looked up these cars on the used market. At about $30k this is an awesome way to get into a TTV8 bmw, maybe warranty left, fold down seats and almost as much cargo as an x5.

Incredible value here!

Hey man!

As dblock2551 said, you can find them for between $270-350, just make sure its the one for F07, which is front springs and rear links for the rear air suspension.

If I'm being honest there are some cars that regardless of what you do to them, they still look ill proportioned and odd. The 5GT is one of them. The X6 is another. The Porsche Panamera is another. The Mercedes R class is yet another.

I will never understand why folks opt for these models, but in the end all that really matters is that THEY like and enjoy them. It always seems that the rich folks buy these vehicals as it affords them an opportunity to drive a car not that many other people have.

Have fun modding.
