Pics of new ride
 
Oddly enough, I haven't had a chance to take any great pics yet but here's a quick shot I took over the weekend. Wish I'd had the chance to wash it...

Details:
2000 540ia
Orient Blue
Tan interior
Style 5's
155k


I've got a boatload of maintenance to do on it. Chain tensioner is here, oil and filters are here. Gotta go grab some plugs and maybe polish the headlights. I might change the tranny fluid or get my indy to do it. Haven't quite decided yet...

Anyway, enjoy.

Didn't I see that E39 @ M&M before? I thought it was black! (or dark grey?)

Im sure you have seen it at M&M, but the car is defiantly orient blue! I think the carbon hood throws some people off, especially at night it is hard to tell.

right on Joey

The car looks really nice and clean
How is the driving compared to the E36 ?

I had a complete 540i to pick-up from the scrapyard nearby and it was crushed by error...
Same as yours but interior was black leather...GRRRRRR..*mumble*
So now i have first bid on all BMW's that comes in and cannot be moved or crushed without my permission.

Anyway i love this car of yours, specially for the week-end family drive out to the hills.

Good move man.*rockout*

Thanks Sly.

Driving im[ressions? Uh, it's ridiculously fast? Drives like a heavy car but makes for a great highway cruiser. My old E36 handled amazingly but always felt twitchy on the highway. Trade off for nimbleness I suppose. I could have played with the alignment settings on the E36 but it pretty much never went on the highway...

540 crushed? That's sad.

I'm happy with my purchase. A couple of funny little problems but they'll get fixed. Nothing I hadn't anticipated...

Sorry we missed saying bye last night.. Didn't think long enough about the fact you weren't coming for coffee. :o Anyway, car looks awesome!

uber: I SWEAR your car is dark grey. Are you sure? ;)

carjoe 09-26-2009 08:10 PM

No worries. We'll hook up again and I can buy the coffee!
We should have more "work on someone's" car nights. That was fun.

BTW: My stereo stills sounds like crap... :LOL:

everlast 09-27-2009 01:27 AM

Just go into DSP and select off.

I may borrow my buddy's EQ that does the analysis if you want to get your car set up sometime.

carjoe 09-27-2009 07:39 PM

Stereo is all good. I was playing with it this morning. Fun stuff.

EQ you say? Can it be used for home theatres? I just have to get my dropped ceilng in than it's tune time!

bmdbley'sBro 10-02-2009 12:21 AM

looking good man.

slemmer 10-02-2009 08:43 AM

Congrats. I've been a blue (orient, maritz, medium) car fan on all my rides, except the vert.
