so the SCd 540 is out today .... tell us your first driving experience.
I bet you don't have to push it over 5000 RPMs to feel the kick in the butt that a SC gives you.
as for me .... I am most interested in the 1000 to 4500 RPM range torque improvement rather then the peak HP at the highest RPM.

Well all i can say at this point is WOW WOW WOW--and i have not even gone over 4000 rpm.Yes there is a difference,and you do feel it in the seat of your pants.I am not really driving it too hard as of yet due to the break in rules.I can not really play with it to much also because I need new rears.Can't wait until the first cruise.I wan't to see how it preforms against Ross's m5.I am also removing my resonator tommorow,less constriction.

Yeah he is selling it to buy the new m5.Thats the only car he was willing to get rid of his car to buy.500 hp hell i would to.Special order from Germany.He was looking at a porshe twin turbo,but he says that in florida ever other car than a corvette is a porshe.And he enjoys undercover cars more(meaning cars that people do not expect to do serious damage)

Derrick, your brother should stick a 525i badge on the trunk and have plates that read "notanM5" That would be mad jokes, and all the ricers would think they had their doors blown off by a base model 5
