new mods on the E60 M5.. and car swap this morning..

Hey guys... did a couple new mods on the M5 (well not really mods..) but here are some pics. Ceramic tint all the way around 15% back windows and 50% up front. Also had Premier Mobile did a customer Clear bra not the hokey precut kits. (no lines!). Also removed the secondary charcoal filter and no it's not placebo effect, according to my gtech, it does produce some power.

Also got some pics from this morning of my neighbor's car that we swapped this am. He heard a lot about the M5 and was thinking about getting yet another one. He came away impressed and just took my R6 out too.

The GT is a freakin torque monster and W12 twin turbo sounds awesome. The interior is also top notch! Here are some pics.

Lookin good Josh . Those Bentley GT's are beasts but riding in it feels odd...so large and high off the ground for a two-door.

It's actually not that big of a car. The pics of it has the air suspension up for better entry and exit. side by side with the M5, the bentley is quite a bit shorter and lower.

It's not that much shorter, and is much much heavier. Doesn't drive like a coupe minus the acceleration.

Has anyone test driven the Quattroporte? Seems like a pretty athletic car, it's up there in price, probably slightly past the E63.
