This guy is a true elitest amoung his friends. I'm glad they're finally smartening up about which vehicles they mod the hell out of. There's a good chance that next week, he'll sell this car and do it all over again with any other car he wants. Over there, there are two types of people, stink'n rich and stink'n poor and it's not hard to tell which one this guy is. Regardless of how bad this guys taste is, there's a good chance this guy can drive. This is purely speculation but of all the cars he has to choose from, he buys a left hand drive M5 to screw around with?? This car crossed an ocean to get there. Granted it probably went to it's new home in the same container some newly jacked ricer came over in but that's besides the point. If he's rip'n it up in a left hand drive car, he's doing it intentionally.

Ummm... for go not show???? Do some research on the exhaust too. Depending on what they did to the motor, the large single pipe is better than the dual.

After I suppressed my initial reflex of contracting stomach, I thought that the guy could have invested in M5 badges on the trunk and steering wheel. But the gear shift lever shattered this theory. Am I the only one who had this thought crossing the mind?

Those are straight up fart cans. Look at exhausts from Active, Supersprint, Corsa, Eisenmann, Borla and so on. These just don't fit on the car at all.

Does this look similar?

I understand race mods, but there is no need for the tacky-as-hell blue headlights that match the ugly rotors, "PINK" tow-hooks, and so on. The guy would also be a huge d.b. if he actually drive that car on the street with that wing. I understand that it helps with downforce on the track, but he still has the i-drive controller and so much else in the car he could rip out for weight savings if it were a dedicated track car. Plus, I am not convinced that I can see the roll cage in photo #4, which means that it may be a bolt-in that can easily be removed for street use.

In addition, it appears that it has the original steering wheel (with air bag) and front side air bags. No way is this only a track car.

I'd missed the cage - I totally agree with you - there is no cage in the front so my second statement above now holds true!

Yeah, the original seat belts are still installed as well.

Who on earth would do up a strickly track use M5 while they could have both. If it was truely a track car, there would be major graphics all over that thing. Like the title said, Ricer M5. This car doesn't fall far from that tree. I'd street this car too, and I'm pretty sure it is an M5.
