Exclamation Well guys its official, I am soon to be a BMW owner!!!!

I know its kinda wierd that I have a love affair with BMW's and have never owned one but pretty soon I will own my first.

The car in question is an E39 540I, jet black, 6-speed. Immaculate condition, I am a friend of the current owner. Its either at 99 or 00.

My first mods are:
face lift head lights and taillights
M technik body kit
E39 M5 shifter and steering wheel
E39 M5 wheels with PS2's

But thats only the OEM BMW stuff, I still gotta figure out what after market I want. Probably just a UUC motorwerks Short throw shifter, stainless steel brake lines, and maybe a Super Sprint exhaust.

I am stopping after that since I probably will run out of money, the Murcielago is sucking up anything and everything extra I have LOL

Well we certainly appreciate you stopping by the M3 section - we will certainly have lots to offer.....while you are at it, hit up the 5-series boards as well......may have some better luck there.

You may want to some more research before putting the SS brake-lines on. Some of the hard core racers say that you cannot see any damage to the line this way. I wouldn't think it is such a big deal. The upside is that they are supposed to give you a firmer brake feel. But I've changed to SS lines before and never felt any difference in the brakes. Good luck. Oh and, congratulations.
