If it was me I wouldn't really do any exterior mods. IMO E60 M5 looks perfect the way it is. Maybe tints that's about it. I would also suggest the Eisenmann exhaust:

+1 this should be on top of the mod list. Such a sick sounding car when equipped with this kind of exhaust.

Also agreed on the styling, however it depends alot of what color the car is IMHO.

I'm a fan of LED interior lighting. Other than that, loud pipes area must have on the V10.

Big fan of them. They really do eliminate the slight delay of the drive by wire system, giving your more instantaneous feedback when you use your right foot.

tons of mods that should be mandatory (IMO) since you asked. here's what ive done so far in my first six months of ownership:

- Eurocharged ECU Tune - +30 bhp and 27ft lb torque
- Spring Booster
- Spacers for stock wheels 20mm front and 18mm rear (makes the stance perfect!)
- Lowering springs (H&R)
- Charcoal Filter Delete
- RPI Air Intake System - 17hp gain (at speed i think)
- RPI 13% Underdrive Pulley - 12 hp gain (on certain dynos)

check out some of the other forums, you will get much more information than whats compiled here tho...

Enjoy that beast!

Depends what you wanna spend & focus on -- Performance vs. Appearance.

If you're gonna do anything, change the exhaust out -- Nothing beats that loud pitched, F1 sounding exhaust note when you're flying through the gear.
