E34 530i Touring: 5spd conv, ACS body, 18" rims

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, shes not clean or perfect, but shes mine!

stats:

1994 530i Touring
3.0L V8 engine, stock, removed resonators into the stock muffler
18" M-parallel Reps staggered, 8" in the front and 9.5" in the back

245/40/18 in front and 265/35/18 in the back

Erebuni AC Shnitzer body package, painted by moi! front lowered by 1"

Ebay Angel eyes

I just finished the 5 speed conversion three days ago, put the body kit and the rims on two days ago and had the resonators removed yesterday.

pretty damn productive week if i may say so.

soon to come, pictures with my E24

heres a preview

Swweeeet. How is the 530 standard? I had the automatic and it didn't really have much torque.

its not that much more peppier, definitively more fun to drive, and it does pull better due to higher rear end gears than what would be linked in a 5spd car from factory.

i think the milage of the engine is getting to it, its a tired motor.

oh well, 4L swap here i come.

Sweet ride! Nobody makes better looking wagons than BMW!

Is it really a 3.0 V8?

^^ Thx guys, appreciate it

yea, its a 3L v8, designated M60B30, its the smaller brother of the M60B40, the ever so popular 4L that later developed into the M62 in the 4L, 4.4L and now 4.8L formats

Try a MarkD chip in the 3.0 first, before the B40 swap. I've heard of great gains.
