    Short back and sides e85 project

    Sold the m5 recently and wanted a fun bmw to blast around in without stupid running cost so picked this individual model up. Yes I have plans..

    2006 e85 2.5 sport vert
    Strut brace
    Kw suspension
    Sports exhaust system
    Red leather interior
    Parrot asteroid headunit
    Jl audio install speakers inc sub plus uprated amplifier.

    Had it one week and I've had a full service on it already plus just ordered new hids, led sidelights, led numberplate lights, splitter and new rims,tyres

    Bits to sort..

    Needs machine polishing to get mint and sort out odd scratches... Mates doing it.
    Front bumper needs resprayed as it's badly chipped... My bodyshop guys doing it.
    Electric roof has failed very common problem.... Being rectified soon.
    One bit of trim missing behind drivers seat.

    No plans for being lower as it's low enough as is plus I really enjoy just blasting round it absolutely love it. Very checkable in bends.
