I have this car for the past almost 10 years, and thought it was about time to finally put it in "The Showroom"!

BMW 523i Auto M Sport

Cosmos Black
Genuine Factory M Sport with black headlining
2 Tone black/beige dash with aluminium trim
Beige leather

Mostly original but some minor enhancements over the past 4 years:
Hella Celis Rear lamps
Silvertech bulbs at rear
German plate surrounds
BMW Moulded flaps
Replaced 4 centre caps on alloys
Refurbished the alloys (thanks Anthony Collins - aka Wheeldoctor!)
New roundel on bonnet
LED Angel Eye bulbs
Osram Nightbreakers mains, dips and front fogs

A great car. Excellent condition for its age and mileage.

Looks great, drives great. Happy camper :)

I'm loving that interior, man!
Lovely contrast with the black, aluminium and beige :cool:

And Cosmos Black is a great colour (when its clean :D)

Its a credit to you - lovely looking car.

Its class mate. I'm in the process of building an M Sport 523i as well, its SE Spec but my mate broke an M5 so I got a lot of the goodies. I always thought I'd want different wheels but they looks class on your motor.
