    So guys, new to M cars and E60's!

    What engine/tuning upgrades are available? Also what styling upgrades are available?

    Is there anything that I can do that wont invalidate the warranty, such as exhaust?

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    How can a M5 5.0 V10 ever be described as slow? Sure you haven't got a 520 and was dreaming you had a M5.

    I said it feels slow. As in you get used to it. I've had plenty of high powered cars, its always fun to squeeze a little bit more out of them.

    Look to the german tuners then for power upgrades or remapping

    Try mike at motech and ask him for advise on remaps
