No traction = no hook = shit ET. He was "hooking" 2.4 60's, which is ass. Therefor, the car is probably a low 12 second car on a proper tire, or even high 11's.

It's difficult to launch almost 500rwhp properly. It's so much power to transfer to the wheels. It's not an easy task with a meaty car like the E39. Those 60's are terrible, and virtually anything would be an improvement.

He's pulling some HUGE traps though...Z06 territory.

aziz i luv your sig, well done!
something tells me this 540is is auto...?

the guy seems to be obsessed in modding this car to kill the Ms but shouldn't he focus on MB instead?
i feel he's a bit insecure/jealous of bmw M, but with the $ he's put in he might as well get the real macoy.

i thought those m3 wheels only fit the e46 not the e39 cause of the offset. the car really looks like a 'big' 3 series, which is not really my cup of tea.
