Stretch's 530d/S62 Sport Touring. Updated 27/08/18

Recommended Posts

Yeh need to find somewhere for it and couldn't use original mid as it's a complete tape deck/mid in one. ;0(.

And it's not real Carbon fibre cloth just looks a lot better than the vinyl stuff and has a texture to it more like the real stuff ;) I bought loads from America when I recovered my m5 Titan trim as it was tatty

And finished for the day as getting cold. Didnt need to take dash top out but thought it be easier and save me a few scraped knuckles lol As i want loom running exactly as if bmw did it ;)

M5 mirrors with memory 6eqeqebe.jpg

Laguna splitter. Was gonna do this as my corners are shattered and costly. But Karl beat me to it lol

rasuhy8a.jpg

More seats for electric rear headrests ;) was hoping for memory motors to for passenger memory but seems there not memory. But for price I paid I don't mind

Also ordered a few parts from Germany which I haven't seen over here so should make a slight difference ;)

Are they aftermarket mirrors?

Yes as I couldn't justify the cost of genuine second hand possibly faulty m5 mirrors with M tax. When I could get brand new mirrors with everything the same. Electric folding. Heated and memory for half the price I've seen some second hand ones go for. ;)

I got some for the same reason. Mine were sold as RHD and i can see perfectly but there built as if they where for a LHD car as the wiring coming out of the LH mirror is longer than the RH when it comes to putting the drivers door card on it being so short causes a lot issues so when you build them back up after paint swap the wiring over will make life much easier. Yours could be right allready just check that the RH mirror has the longer lead
