The car has full Xpel protection so there's no scratches or dents on the original paint. I've upgraded the stereo system so I have everything I need. BMW can never make a better 5 series than this. It's hard to describe the feel of the car unless you drive it. It's a special model and like most have said the pinnacle of BMW design. I honestly wouldn't take a new one over this.


So dope!

Nah you are wrong. I own a Bluewater. The car in question (Ryan's BMW E39 M5 from E39Source) is Silverstone and is a 2000 car. Bluewater was only available from 2002 - 2003. This should convince you guys. Ryan has documented all of the modifications he has done to turn his preface lift car into an LCI one so the outside appearance can fool people that aren't as familiar to BMW colors. Ironically, Bluewater is less blue and more silver than Silverstone. Ryan obviously loves his car. I can't imagine going through all of those upgrades (LCI sport steering wheel, premium package; auto headlights, etc). A shame Doug didn't figure out how much money has went into that car. I'm guessing $60,000.

I have seen SS I up close and couldn't believe how blue it was. Bluewater is definitely more silver when you look at them next to each other (rare occurrence).
