welcome to maxbimmer! Awesome ride, love the red interior. What is that thing on the central-left air vent?

Thanks all. LOSO is right - it is a holder for my iphone that is attached to the vent...

cool, i thought it was something like those bluetooth speaker modules for cellphones... but didn't think that would be the case as it probably already has that built into the iDrive.

Hey golf hero glad you are enjoying the new ride!
Here's mine the day I picked it up. I have done some mods since then.
So not as stock looking.
It's interlogos blue on black with piano black trim.

Sweet! Interlagos blue looks great. For mods, I have RPI scoops, block off plates and BMW filters on order. After that some tint and CF mirrors. Probably going to hold off on anything else (exhaust, headers, etc) for awhile...

I did the scoops and filters, the cf front lip. Spacers 15 rear 12 front.
Going to sways and coilovers in the next couple weeks as well as exhaust.
Want to do cf mirrors and gills and kidneys. Then I will
probably go with the adv.1 rims.
Love the colour but man it marks easily!

Awesome car. Never seen Interlagos on M6 but I've always like the colour.

Thanks! Love the colour. My m3 was steel grey and my m5 was silverstone. So when I saw the m6 I thought never seen that before. So I got it. Then I'm driving it home and a vert m6 interlagos pulls up beside me. And I thought it was rare!
But that's the only other one I've seen booting around.

Those are all great colours. I loved Steel grey, you rarely see that colour though. A lot of the 2001s to 2003s were Titanium Silver, people didn't seem to buy greys back then. Silverstone is my fave E60 M5 colour too!

Both my 330Ci and M3 are Silver Grey. The only reason I bought my M3 is because while driving my 330 I had always told myself there's no way I'd get rid of it unless I found a Silver Grey with Competition pkg and 6 speed. Comp and 6 speed is super rare, but then a leased one got dropped off here and I told myself I had no choice but to buy it. I'd be totally happy with Interlagos Competition pkg too, IL Blue is ultra rare on the M3s.

Hope you enjoy your car.

Thanks.

Zigfread: The RPI Scoops, BMC filters and block off plates arrived today. Will be installing them this weekend.

Quick question - Did you remove your carbon filters when you installed the BMC filters? Seems like it gives you an instant 7hp increase as the European models don't have them and are rated at 507HP. Given it is purely emissions related and the cars still pass Canadian emissions without the carbon filters I'm tempted.. Not sure I'm going to bother as I just finished going through a bunch of work to keep my warranty and don't want to risk anything that might void it.

I'll also ask my SA tomorrow and see what he thinks.

I took mine out Right away.
I took them out on my m5 as well.
And never had an issue with warranty on either car.
They are only there to stop odd smells coming back through.

Also it might be 7 hp but it feels alot more. The car sounds better
and it does have more response. Look at the charcoil filters
insanely restrictive.

You can also say my car never came with them...

Did you order your cf lower mirror covers yet? Have you found any good vendors for them?
I'm still looking around, but the ones at revozport look alright.
Might try them. I just don't want some cheap looking ones!

I haven't ordered them yet.

I'm in California once a month and was planning on picking them up locally and bringing them back. Here is where I was planning on getting them:

You have convinced me on the filter removal... Will do it when I install the BMC filters this weekend...

Thanks *rockout*
