You should link you HIDP build. Always loved this build!

FXR's in my E39 made a nice difference but its a bigger task (Budget for install) to do something on my E70 =/

It's possible. That a low/hi beam shot? Pretty. Done morimoto retros and they were okay. I'm satisfied with stock projectors running premium bulbs on the e53 though. Likely will be on the e70 as well. I'll definitely keep an eye on your build though.

BTW, I've been looking for an mtec e61 for a long time for a third vehicle. Prefer 6spd but with only 350 out there I won't hold my breath.

I am going to be putting my Grigio Telesto E61 up on Bring a Trailer next month, open to private part offers to see if I get any "convincing" offers.

I would also consider manual swapping it for the new owner if the financial compensation made sense. I have already manual swapped my white E61 and will be manual swapping the black E39 as well prior to sale.

This is the grey wagon:

I get a 404 error from that link, but would definitely be interested in seeing it.

Edit: Never mind, googled it and found it.

Double edit: That looks like it's going to be expensive. PM me the details when you are looking to sell it. The wife likes it but we'll be buying another house in the coming 12-18 months so will depend on when you're letting it go, and for how much. Beautiful build though.

Looks great! I cannot wait to do these mods sometime soon. I can't stand the DVD and phone mount. What are you planning to do for the actual DVD player? Is there a delete plate for that?
