Noob, here is my 540i6 and my old e36...

I am new here, nice site! I just bought a 98 bmw 540i 6 spd v8. So far it has PIAA lighting, Pioneer navigation, and Axis Penta 20x9/20x10 wheels(not on car yet) Many more mods to come! I recently totaled my Procharged 02 mustng gt so I decided to slow down a bit from 460 hp and get into a 540i6! I am also including pics of my e36 I had before my mustang...





Here are some of the e36:
This is with the first set of 19's

Here is with the 19 inch Axis supermesh:

LOL, you didn't like the ACS sport mirrors on the e36? Those were $799! Luckily they were on the car when I bought it! I'll go ahead and post some pics up on the GT...I didn't mean that it was a step down in quality(actually a huge increase in quality), but I meant a slight drop in horsepower..460 down to 286? I love it though I missed my e36 from the day I sold it...

nice stang.

true, its less power (a lot less power) although if you do the same kind of mods to the e39 it'll be quick. but horsepower isn't everything.

I loved those mirrors, the whole car had the ACS kit, wing, mirrors, woodgrain, exhaust, suspension, etc when I got it. Probably a few grand for the package...

Nice rides,
For 2 legs and 1 1/2 arms you could put a supercharger on the 540
