  • White Angel : BMW E60 525i M-Sport Japan spec

    Actually this post is long overdue... I was supposed to post on my JOY earlier but I couldn't find a perfect time to do so (maybe I'm just plain lazy). The fact that I had just bought a new Canon EOS 60D, I knew that I have to create this thread not to show off but to share my passion with fellow Bimmer so here I present to you my beloved White Angel which I almost sold last year due to some personal reason.

    So here it is... my White Angel to share with you all

        By the way... this is not really 100% angel as it will turn into a demon when night comes...

          And here is the summary of my JOY

          BMW 525i (E60) M-Sport Japan Spec End 2005 with N52 engine + aFe Air intake

          Wheel:
          1) Original 18" Hyper Silver Breyton Race GTS; with
          2) 25mm & 30mm spacer in front & back respectively (due to the different offset for the 18" rims
          3) aftermarket lock nuts
          4) Continental Tire Valve
          5) Goodridge Stainless Steel brake hose (lifetime warranty)... OEM manufacturer for Brembo
          6) stock M-Sport suspension & spring

          Interior:
          1) Original BMW Aluminum Silver Cube trim
          2) //M aluminum pedal
          3) Multimedia Interface
          4) Kenwood DVD/USB player
          5) Garmin gvn53 GPS module
          6) Eclipse Reverse Camera

          Exterior:
          1) Crystal White Glasurit Paint
          2) Original M5 fender grill (however, I replaced with Hamann sticker instead of M5.. don't want to be a M5 wannabe)
          3) 6 pcs LED ///M side indicator (black)
          4) original M5 emblem at the trunk (removed the 5 for the very same reason)
          5) full BMW name sticker at the driver's side skirt
          6) Hamann nickel metal badge at rear windscreen
          7) Hamann style diffuser for M-Sport
          8) Remus Power Label Quad Exhaust
          9) Angel iBright v3 ring marker (brightest in the market so far) with matching Xenon fog lamp
          10) aftermarket Chrome Grill (prefer this instead of black ones)
          11) ACS roof spoiler

          Future mods:
          1) CSL style carbon fibre trunk but will re-spray to my car's colour
          2) program the radio frequency to Malaysia
          3) LCI Head + Taillamp
          4) BMS PowerBox for N52 engine (plug & play) instead of ECU re-map... my cousin has installed it to his 523 and now his ride can catch up with mine.. sigh! Salivating already!
          5) Laminate all the existing trim to Matt Silver using water press technology... current steering spoke and power window switch cover are peeling off and it's a sore sight to the eyes!

          P.S: All subject to the availability of fund.. you know la.. got home minister so can be quite difficult!

                        I am look a a good place to get mine done to my ride.

                        Many thanks in advance and keep those nice mods goin and pls update us with more pics.

                              bro PCW,
                              Thanks again! I want my JOY to be different from the rest out there without being overly modded it was a slow but steady modding work! Slow as in limited budget so most of the time I only mod when I have the moolah... LOL!!

                              FYI... the heat shield actually came with the air intake as a SET. I bought it directly from USA since Gruppe M was too expensive. And if you wanna know, the air intake is aFe... google it ok?
