    Hey guys, just traded the M3 for it. It is still 800 miles away but will be able to drive her in about a week. Has 84,000 miles. all the cooling and radiator has been replaced. Has an M5 front bumper, halo's, xenons, M5 lighted shifter. that is about it. let me know what you think.

    that car is begging for some shadowline trim. that must be one of the earliest 540/6's.

    Those look like $60/wheel Sears specials. What kind are they?

    Throw some cheap chrome on it with a decent offset and it'll look a ton better.

    Still looks good though. I don't have a BMW :crying:

    Smooth. Comfortable.

    I second the notion for shadowline trim and some different wheels.

    ha, the wheels are coming. these are what the guy used for winter wheels. they are actually borbets. but i am looking into some M parallels. 18x8.5 up front and 18x9.5 in the rear. shadowline is a must and M5 mirrors are also. there is a lot of things i am going to do. just give me some time :)

    i think it's hot! how much did u get it for?

    yeah the borbets arent the greatest, but they are certainly better than if dude used some base 528i rims.

    can someone explain what shadowline trim is

    Cars got real potential. Some wheels and tint would really hot. Nice find though.

    I like it. It will look even better with the new wheels.
