Early E39 540s came with 282hp and 324 tq.....then later on it was bumped up to 290hp.

Haha, so much random made up HP figures in one thread. Classic.

535isport, we use a different scale for HP. In NA, it is SAE, in Europe, DIN. 286hp = 282hp here. E39 M5: 400hp DIN, 394hp SAE. E46 330: 231hp DIN, 225hp SAE.

vadim, the early 540's had 310lb-ft, later ones were 324.
