Talking Obioban's 2001 Le Mans blue M5

Picked this up as a new DD, as I'm street parking every day and want to protect the M3. Also, my DD cycle is down to ~4 miles, which isn't enough time for things to warm up, so protecting the M3 from cold cycling.

Unusual choice for a DD car, but I got it for a good price, so... made sense to me

The car:

Needs euro dash ASAP to regain the lost leg room!

forgot how awful MKIII/early software nav is! Will be getting MKIV and a custom OS shortly...

Project list currently to bring her up to DD spec:

Cooling system
replace breather system
SSK removal and new shifter bushings
euro dash
oem bluetooth
MKIV retrofit
misc coding options
misc ecu changes
secondary air system delete
Beisan vanos fixes
timing chain guides/tensioner
diff mounts
clutch line (slight leak)
interior rear view fix (fluid about to dump)
get a snow wheel/tire setup
space saver spare/jack retrofit
X5 thrust arm bushings
replace missing underbody panels/bolts
replace center climate vent (cracked)

Car already has a stoptech front BBK (keeping) and tubi exhaust system (selling).

Current Cars: 2005 IR/IR M3, 2001 LMB/blk M5, 04 M3 wagon, 2017 i3
Past cars: 04 M3, 03 530i, 96 M3, S50B32 e36 M3 CM race car

FS: Intravee and various compatible AI Net components.
