    i know some of you may not agree with me....

    but i love this color.....it looks good cleaned up..and it's not as hard to maintain like black or white..(although those colors look damn good!)

    haven't properly detailed her yet...hopefully after the wife and i get back from toronto i can do that next month sometime.....gotta box full of werkstatt products waiting to be applied...:)

    so all i did today was

    wash the car with meguiars car wash

    cleaned the wheels thoroughly

    meguiars endurance tire shine on the tires....

    anyways onto some sterling grey hotness.....:) i know there's alot of pics...and quite a few duplicates...but i don't care :) enjoy!

    to commemorate the last yr of this body style bmw offered the msport package in the states on the 540i's

    mtech front/rear bumpers 18" m parallel wheels and a few other goodies..


    so it came from the factory this way!

    God I would kill for that car...IMO it's the best looking BMW hands down ever made..Is yours a 6-speed? I definitely like the color and that's actually similar to the color I was looking for when buying my car. I'm glad I got the pearl white though :big grin:

    no not a six speed

    its an auto

    i was lookin for a six speed but i couldn't find many that were as low mileage as this....

    besides as much fun as this car would be in 6 speed its nice to have an automatic...

    thinking of buying a used e46 here in the next yr or 2 as a DD that i'll probably get a manual

    bought it with 27k miles back in december

    paid 35k for it

    reliability...well bmw's aren't shitty cars...but they do require regular maintenance. if you neglect it it can cost you $$$$ to fix!

    known issues with the 5 is the cooling system goes out around 60k miles (2500 or so to overhaul that) front control arm bushings around 45-50k miles

    those are the 2 that i can think of off the top of my head but do expect to spend around 1500-2000 a yr on maintenance...thats a bit on the high side...but again...its WELL worth it each time you get behind the wheel of it....

    very nice car, how much is one of those worth?

    the design is looking so dated now.
