i know their pricey but wheels are so important can really make or break a car, i like the e36 m3 whels but on an e36, you gotta have some period but modern spanky wheels mate. and dont go massive it just causes problems, thing with the old relics is theyre body lines just dont suit enormous wheels not like the newer cars. can you send or have you got a pic of the old m5 wheels mate?

Loving this build! E28 is my fave BMW body shape and the M5 at that is spectacular, One question though.

Why did you gut the White M5 for this one? Surely it would be good to keep an original M5 on the roads instead of a conversion. Or was there something wrong with the chassy etc etc?

yea i did think about doing the pair up but the red one has sentimental value making one seemed the best way to go! but yes it is a shame!
