Well...I have to start somewhere...no real mods yet, but many on order.
2009 Ice Silver S5 with 50k on the clock that is new to me for the past month. Found on eBay from a BMW dealership in NJ, so called them up, settled on a price and sent them a check. Was in Utah for a week on a business trip and simply changed my ticket to fly to NYC instead of back home in Michigan. Took a train down to the Jersey shore and had the sales rep pick me up. Half hour later I had signed all the documents and started driving home.
Only 800 miles to go....
Only issues with the car was a bad front hood strut, bubbling start/stop button and a broken handle for the spare tire cover. Replaced those in the first week as well as swapped out the license plate fascia for a non-plate version. The car had different tires on the front and rear...not sure why...but didn't care as I planned on getting a set of winter wheels and tires on there ASAP.
18x8.5 with Blizzak WS80's to get me through the Michigan shitty winter.
Other most important thing to me since I drive 80 miles a day is a proper mount for my phone. Still waiting on my iPhone 6+ to show up this week, but sticking with the same mount I have used for the past year. Utilize the S5 mount from ProClip USA with the Rokform mounting system and case as I utilize the same for my bikes to track my rides.
Lonely clear case without a phone...sad panda...
First set of major mods were set in motion today.
Mops setting me up with the AWE track exhaust, coilovers and AG M590 rims in custom brushed stainless steel 20x10 for Summer use. Most likely throwing Hankooks on there since they come in the right size and are a decent price for what I will do 99% of the time...run down the highway...
Blackout RS5 grill from ECS Tuning already shipped today.
Ecodes and rear LED retrofit kits from Nick at OEM+...can't wait for these
Should hopefully have the stuff from Mops in time to have a local shop perform my 55K service, install the exhaust and coilovers, do an alignment and even mount tires to the new rims. I'll install the rest myself and put the rims on as soon as the weather breaks (around May...)
Will obviously post pics of all mods as they are made. Thanks for all of the advice and help with procuring the right parts. Love the forum.
