iND E60 550i | Stay classy

This was posted over in the M3 section, but I figured you guys can use some content over here.

What car can you drive every day when you already have one of the most perfectly balanced E93 M3s ever built? When we worked with our client John to create his weekend car, we aimed for a perfect balance of understated performance and appearance that would reflect Johnís personality. We wanted to build something with a more mature and refined style, and Johnís E93 oozed refinement when it was completed and given itís name- ďThe Silver StandardĒ.

So what sort of daily driver do you get someone who has an M3 like Johnís Silver Standard? The answer has to be equally refined. We chose to help John create an E60 550i. Because this car is Johnís daily driver, we took a fairly basic but effective approach to selecting itís modifications, keeping in mind that we wanted to give John the refined yet aggressive appearance that he wanted while maintaining a basic mod list and relatively low budget.
