The F10 M5 will not hit US shores until August/September, but that hasn’t stopped US members from imagining how they will configure their future M5s. Some even already have project M5 plans, such as this M5POST member who plans a Java Green M5 project car, inspired by the BMW Individual Java Green M3s we’ve seen come out of Europe and the BMW M dealership in Munich.

Check out a preview of the project Java Green M5 and some plans inside.

We’ve seen some major conversions and projects from our 1 series owners and this is one of the best yet. One 1ADDICTS member has taken his E82 120d and converted it into a 1M-bodied car with the S65 V8 engine from the M3!!

In addition to the engine transplant, the car had to have custom bodywork on rear fenders, 1M body panels fitted, M3/1M suspension fitted, exhaust made to fit the new body, and 1M 19″ wheels. The icing on the cake was retrofitting the second generation i-Drive.

Check out its photos and videos inside.

Turner Motorsports has fitted the F30 H&R Springs onto their new F30, giving us the first real life look of the F30 stance after fitting H&R lowering springs.

The H&R lowering springs come in two varieties — Sport Spring and Super Sport Spring, with the latter being a more aggressive lowering.

The H&R Sport Springs (Part #28878-2) lower the F30 by 1.2″ front and 1.2″ rear.
The H&R Super Sport Springs (Part #28877-2) lower the F30 by 1.75″ front and 1.6″ rear.
