    A few shots of my 08 535i

    Been wanting to take a few shots of my car but I've been super busy. I have a 2nd career as a photographer and had an opportunity on Saturday night to shoot in a garage. Of course, it was raining but it gave a cool opportunity to use the puddles. Click here to enlarge Will take some more of the engine bay and interior soon.

    Very professional pictures. Nice car too.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    Nice ride and nice shots!

    If you want to mess with the motor you are in the right place as well.

    Thanks Sticky! I've already got the Cobb, RPI scoop and DCI's installed. Seriously debating the advantages and disadvantages of DP's as I'd REALLY like to run the Cobb stage 2 maps. Not too many people are modding out their 535 though so it's a little more difficult to get user experience on this platform.

    Surprisingly, we have a couple guys pushing their 5's here. You can definitely get DP's, AR has a solution. They provide a nice benefit.

    Been looking into that but I still can't get a clear definition of what I have vs. what I need. It's a 2008 so it appears to be an LCI model but my AE's are definitely halogen.

    Can I go LED or HID or both? Any problems with errors on any of them?

    HIDs just run really hot, and it can be cumbersome to stuff all the wores in there.I believe Marc has come up with a solution for the 5 series, the housings were different than regular E90/92. E60 is the same as Z4 35is, and X6. The bulb is the same but the heatsink has been modified slightly due to a piece of plastic on the headlight getting in the way.
