I couldn't leave my Canadian family hanging - New paint/New Wheels
Well I rarely post here anymore but I know that Andre does and you guys are IT when it comes to the euro bmw stuff so I couldn't deprive you of updates with the 540. This was quoted directly off of bimmerforums just to save me time in retyping it:


A few months ago my car got rear ended right after pulling off the showgrounds at Hot Import Nights. With the damage to the trunk I planned on a rear end repair and subtle flaring of the rear quarters. About a month after the accident the car had the misfortune of getting keyed along with part of my moms XI in our driveway so I decided I might as well dish out the cash I had put away for my system and other mods and just getting the entire thing sprayed. I originally considered doing something wild and changing the color but after much research and talking with people changed my mind and opted for a little darker version of Schwartz II.

The car is going to be wetsanded and buffed once more in two weeks and the shop owner told me he wants to spray the hood and trunk over in November because he isn't satisfied but overall it came out great.

For the first time today I had the oportunity to shoot some quick pics. It was starting to rain so the pics are sub par but it gets the point across:

Lets go Red Sox (Green Monster):

For the true fitment freaks:

As some of you know I have been working on fitting 5x112 OZ Futuras to the car. I am almost there! I ordered my adapters and lugs but ran into issues with my stock lugs. I had to place another order for new lugs and should have the wheels mounted on Friday.

Here are a few teaser pics along with pics of the wheels on the previous owners cars (he used to own my car too for those of you who don't know):

They are fully polished and the one pic in my trunk is just dusty. They look much better when clean ;)

To all the purists who absolutely hate my car...I LOVE YOU GUYS. Without the hate, I wouldn't have nearly as much motivation to keep doing what I do.

Friendly Reminder every time I hit the pumps:

And the most necessary sticker of all:
