My 2001 BMW E39 M5.

Hi all, I've had a thread running in 'Projects and Restorations' since I bought this in October '14 http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=349620 but since the old-girl is about finished I thought I'd put a Showroom thread up.

This morning I gave it a rinse off then a coat of megs gold-class through the foam lance. Rinsed again the dried with a Reaper and Adams Detail Spray. Wheels were done with Bilberry at 10:1, rinsed, wiped over with Adams again and the tyres with Poorboys Natural Look Dressing. No wax on it yet as I want to wait for warmer weather and let the new paint gas-off.

Phone pics only at the moment, sorry....





Its younger cousin gets in on the act, sulking because I kerbed a wheel earlier...



New headlight lenses and foglamps...







And finally got the Alpine DAB unit working properly too...



Thanks for looking folks, got a few shows booked for the summer so hopefully see you around....

It is a stunning thing an E39 M5, even more so one as tidy as that. It's also a stunning colour too and I've read through your whole project thread! It looks lovely now, a real credit to you

That's a "they don't make them like that anymore" and it's a beauty.

This car stunning, fair play! I've always wanted an E39, it's my favourite 5er, I just replaced my E60 with an F20 1 series. The E60 is a cracking car too.
