3rd time is a Charm? It is in the Garage.

1606 14
Well, it finally arrived about 2pm. Guy had told me it would be here in the early AM. It was early AM somewhere :)

Well this is the 3rd (yeah yeah I get enough Shi* from nieghbors) e39 M5 and technically our 4th M5 (had a Euro e34 M5).

I am grinning from ear to ear. Holy Cow! The previous owner did it right.

Here is a list of things on her:

Black with Caramel interior
Navigation system
M Bass stereo upgrade
K40 Stealth with radar jammer.
Shroth 4 point harness.

Engine:
Eurobahn Carbon fiber high volume plenum
Increase air volume by 10% decrease air temperature by 20-28 degrees F.
Eurobahn software
Increase of 8 horsepower over Dinan Stage 3
Dinan Cold Air intakes
Dinan high volume air mass sensors
Air temperature relocation kit
Supersprint headers and connector pipe
Supersprint X pipe
Supersprint Magnum Series exhaust
Dyno test shows 440HP at the crank. Performed and documented by Bavarian Hyper Sport
Best 1/4 mile out of 3 runs was 12.80 seconds (non pro driver)

Transmission:
UUC Short shifter kit
UUC transmission mounts
UUC Lightweight flywheel kit. (24 pound aluminum flywheel with 850csi friction plate)
Dinan 3.45 differential

Suspension:
K&W Variant II Coilover Kit (Adjust ride height and stiffness)
Eibach oversized swaybar kit front and rear
Dinan strut tower brace front and rear
Brakes: Brembo Big Brake kit with Ferrodo pads and ATE Super Blue DOT4 Race brake fluid

Wheels:
Hamman 19 inch Pro Series II

Tires :
Bridgestone SO3 Front 245/35 ZR19 Rear 285/30 ZR19

The sound of this car is AWSOME! I just blip the throttle to hear it :) One thing that strikes me is that for havin the suspension setup it hsa along with the 19's the ride is great. It is nimble and quick and much more fun than my Porsche......oh did I say that?

Well I got tons of stuff I want to tinker with. First thing is to remove those Ambers......................

Isn't it great that mods only add value for the DRIVER?...:thumbsup:

Nice ride,

Great deal. Sounds like it has all the mods you could want. Nothing to tinker with except getting rid of the amber corners. I paid a little more for my car and it is a 2000 about 6 months ago. I wish I had known about your car. I know I paid too much for it, but after seeing it with all of the mods, I guess I got a little impulsive.ouich ouich
