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.
