Hey folks,

I am semi new to the board and I never posted an introductory thread. I come from a Jeep/VW background. I love my diesels as well. I was in the mood for something fast, so I decided on an M car. My daily driver gets about 40MPG, but its no Beast.

Here is my Beast. She is an 02 with about 103K on the clock. She has the usual e39 nuances. I think i may need a clutch soon (slips while hard shifting in higher gears), a few minor dings and chips, strange battery drain (NOT the FSU; I already changed it, runs kind of cool (gets up to temp, but stays in the lower r

ange of normal, etc.

Currently I am running a MKIII Nav, but I have a Dynavin on order and will be amplifying the outputs with an Alpine MRP-F300. I Have Alpine compents front and rear as well that are going to go in. That build will be starting in the next few weeks.

Drivetrain wise, she is completely stock.

Thanks!

Aside from the above mentioned issues, I need to get my display fixed (going to send to VDO repair), I have the Dice Mediabridge BT/IPOD/SIRIUS modules, my homelink acts funky, I throw 'coolant not up to temp' codes if i brings the Rs up too high if not fully warmed up.

I also need to replace my driver side window; there is a gauge in the window from what I suspect was a window regulator problem that has since been solved.

I actually already know someone off the board too! I wear my 'M Power' Lanyard at work and I saw another guy wearing the same one. We started talking and he also has a Carbon Black E39 M5. Small world eh? Turns out that its the Infamous Q.

Ill post more when i think of it...
