why

because, the sound doesn't match the car. i would do an Lsx swap in a E30, e36 or even the older BMWs if i could but not on an E39.

Actually 540i sound MEAN with just headers....meaner than that thing..

automatic...autrocious!

that second vid....thats not an LS series....old school big block....oh and someone should tell him running no exhaust manifolds = burned exhaust valves!

I find nothing wrong with the swap, however I agree sound doesn't match the car.

What I thought as well... The swap is cool though. I think what IS bastardized is that M badge :rolleyes:

i think you can swap whichever enigine you like into whichever car you like.....but the sound does not match the car....

Thats the most practical way to mod a bimmer, *th-up**th-up**th-up*

that is just a different exhaust put onto that car.
i have a 540 and the sound of the starter is the same and the pitch of the first few revs sound like the 540i v8. after that it sounds different
