Thanks to qube I've got my hands on some really tidy Style 166M wheels. Just need to decide on what tyres I'll be fitting.

Had a replacement trunk panel show up from Denmark, it will be nice to get rid of the Jap spec panel.

I'm keen to find out where you sourced this from.

Including shipping it cost me $305NZD, took 2 weeks to get here. They packaged the part well too which was a concern with shipping something like this from Europe.

Panel beater is going to paint it for $150.

if you use 3m double sided tape, they are rock solid. 

(edit - the foam stuff)

Also curious about this, need to get rid of the dealer surrounds and Japan plate holders on my E61 530i. Would this be the tape? https://nzsafetyblackwoods.co.nz/en/3m-vhb-tape-5952-black-clamshell-19mm-x-13-7m-roll-07077175

Awesome, nice to see an M5 E60 be save from retardation. They make a lot more sense to me in stock specification. Will look the part with the stock rims back on too... Pilot sport 4S spec tyres are probably the go? 

Bet you enjoyed the quieter stock exhaust on that drive!

The loud exhaust had its moments but I do enjoy a quieter car,  I think my neighbours also enjoy the stock exhaust when I sit in the drive warming the car up at 630am.
