Just making a start on the project thread to keep track of my progress...

After having a rather modified E51 previously I decided to go a similar route again.

Budget and current exchange rate kind of dictated that I get an E50 this time around but luckily I found a beauty a few hours down the road :)

So, I've now got a 2001 E50 model X

7 seater model
2wd
Curtains
Twin sunroof
Electric drivers seat
Full sonar

Modifications;

Kenstyle body kit with Inpul spoiler and back panel,
HKS coilovers
20in splits rims (need to find details)
255/35/20 tyres all round
Stainless big bore exhaust
Custom Pearl purple paint
Sony Bluetooth stereo (to be replaced)

Yeah, stick with the purple theme. Make it pop. And if this is not at JAE next year I really will chop your arms off
