    Hello all,

    Great site, finally registered!

    I currently have a late 2000 year 540i Sport in titan silver with lots of mods! I have fitted an aFe engineering stage 2 intake, have a full Supersprint exhaust waiting to go on without the resonator and the car rides on 19" 2 piece BBS CK2 Air split rims, 8.5J front and 10J rear. I know you guys will ask, so the tyres are 235/35 front and 275/30 rear (offsets ET18 and ET20 respectively. I have also lowered the car with genuine new M-technic dampers and Eibach Pro-control springs. I love my 540i!!

    I have owned many, many, many cars and many BMW's in the past including my beloved E30 M3, a number of E36 M3 3.0's and 3.2's, 728i Sports, 740i Sport, 840i Sports and also own my third 328i Sport (late 99 with only 57K - it's MINT). I'm quite fastidious with my cars so am hoping that I can contribute positively to discussions. My brother is also a petrolhead and although he has moved on Porsches (not my bag...) he has owned E30 M3's, 5 E46 M3's (yes, 5!) and a restored E30 M3 Sport Evolution.

    The rest of the family run a car rental business and some of our fleet include a B7 RS4, a 4.2 V8 R8 and other BMW's/Merc's/Audis. We also had a 2005 M6 V10 which was sadly written off by one of the clients...

    For my day job I work as a Research and Development Engineer for a large car manufacturer. My background was commonrail Diesel engine calibration but I have since moved into prototype direct injection boosted gasoline engines!!! Wooohah!!

    I'm a complete petrolhead (as are all the men in my family!) and I live and breath cars, engines, technology and in car entertainment.

    Look forward to reading your posts and I'm hoping with my experience I can contribute to your threads.

    Regards,

    Reza.

    Welcome to the forum mate

    Excellent introduction sounds like you could be a real asset to the forum. You've clearly owned some awesome cars and your 540i sounds just as awesome...get some photos up of it and your previous cars if you have any

    Hi chaps

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I'll get the camera out this weekend, subject to the nasty weather, and get snapping! I do think that the E39 Sport in snowy conditions looks sublime...especially when the deep deep dishes fill with snow!

    I do have some pictures of my 328i Sport which I will learn how to upload. Must admit she is currently up for sale (my attempt to cost reduce my life for next year..) but if she doesn't sell I'm very tempted to put a Supersprint on that aswell!

    Thanks again guys.

    Reza.
