I'd like to hear how that Stebro exhaust sounds. I love mine! Love to hear the Stebro sound on an old school M5.

Hey guys, thanks for all the inquire. still have to go through the car to decide what to do. at the moment r having fun with the front brakes (the pins that lock the brake pads in the caliper r seized solid). also the P700z r so old the sidewall r cracking up, so for sure no test driving for the weekend so stay tune.
oh btw the VIN is WBSDC9308J2791756, mileage is around 176k. the Alpina rims r the only rims with the car so cannot sell them at the moment.

i think this car has the high-tech engine, the one that was pioneer by GM in the early '80s in certain Cadillac model. it is call the 2-4-6 engine. what it does is when u start the car up, especially when u let her sit for couple days, the engine is running on 2 cyl. once u let her warm up a bit (or if u still have the full set of tools in the trunk u can remove the spark plugs & clean them up 'cause they r completely foul) she will run on 4 cyl. once in the full moon ( or if u clamp on the fuel pressure regulator hose) she will run on the full 6 cyl.
i think BMW never admit that & call this engine M88/S38.

hahahaha!!! of course thats a joke. the car is a Can-spec car, the po or whoever owned the car b4 install the M-tech spoiler pack (w/fender arch extension) plus the euro light. from what i can see, all org.panel with vin sticker, mostly org.paint, org.glass, couple minor surface corrosion.

btw, back at the fatherland, when u order the m5, u can either have the slim euro chrome bumper or the m-tech kit. rumors is that the m-tech kit is an no-cost option.

If you do a VIN check on the car.It is an NA M5.You could buy the MTEK kit and have it installed.You could also order a Euro M5 with an MTEK kit back in Germany.So like Teutonicfool said it is a Canadian M5 with a NA S38 with a 256hp motor and a previous owner has had the MTEK kit installed onto the car.It is NOT a Euro car.Nor does it have the Euro 286hp motor in it. There will be 1 of 2 things happening to this car.One being that the engine may be shot and needs a rebuid to the tune of about 8 to $10,000 or it will be a parts car for someone to work on no matter what he or she chooses. Still waiting for the end result and sale price Teutonicfool.
