    Innovadrive NXG-39 / OEM look Double DIN Fascia

    @DennisCooper now my M5 is officially back on the road, I now see an audio system upgrade on the horizon once I have recuperated some funds! I have tried to live with the standard system but it just does not cut the mustard in todays age! Looks like you have developed an amazing product, perfect for the OEM+ look! Are there any updates in regards to the controls on the fascia being able to control aftermarket headunits? I am looking at the Pioneer AVH-Z9200DAB ...

    Thanks for that Dennis, i have a modified carphonics unit in mine, was curious to see how the OEM E46 one compared as I know a few M5 owners want to keep their setup as factory as possible! Did not know about that Alpine unit

    Dropped off the M5 today to iRock Performance in Tring for some overdue work including: Fitting brand new oem suspension Repair the rotten sills (both jacking points) Drop the fuel tank to replace brake lines see if there's any other rust that Needs looking at Replace Power steering pipes I Met Leo (the owner) and got a quick tour of the workshop. I have been following these guys for a few months now and very impressed with the work and meeting the guys in person as well as the amazing workshop certainly reassured me The owner has an E39 M5 himself - check this out will update this thread with any further findings!

    A minor update, replaced the custom M5 grille (with brake ducting) and fitted the original OEM M5 one (personal preference!) also replaced the headlights with a fresh set from a 2004 E39 (they literally look brand new)

    The finish looks spot on! how much did that cost you? did you drop the car off to them? i have centre caps, the little M stickers and wheel bolts all OEM ready but need to sort the wheels out!

    Cheeky rear end pic! OEM LED F10 number plate units reveal the blue in the paint work! Recent work carried out: repair rear door handle which refused to open (new handle and cable) I have purchased an OEM front bumper grille as mine has the two duct holes which I am not a fan of!
