: FS- Dinan throttle body and brembo front BBK for e39 540i

12-02-2005, 04:57 AM
I have a Dinan throttle body off of my 2000 540 for sale, please PM me if interested, im located in socal but the part isnt all that big so it can be shipped anywhere. This part was in my car for about 5k miles as it had to be removed when my ESS kit came in. The brembo kit is the cross drilled big brake kit, the calipers are red and this is the 355mm kit. I just bought brand new rotors and hardware that would need to be mounted to the hats. There is slight road rash on the one of the calipers from what i assume to be rocks or something else from the road, please PM if interested. Thanks!

Does the Dinan throttle body need Dinan software to tune everything? I'd be interested if this is a straightforward operation...

12-09-2005, 04:18 PM
Well when it was in my car yes it had software, although im sure you could just put it in and get some kind of response change from the engine, im not 100% sure. The fact that the dinan software is updated when this part is put in to make use of the larger amount of air tells me just dropping it in might not be as good as getting the accompanying software, anyone else have any ideas?


btw here are some photos of all the parts....

1. new left rotor
2. new right rotor
3. hardware and loctite, one per side
4. 4 brembo pads....they are stacked
5. The hat and old rotor, two of these...

Hey Arjun,

Hope you are doing well my friend.

What ya up to now....how come you are selling all the good bits.... I have a friend that maybe interested in the Quaife LSD...PM me with a price.

You need to pick yourself up a nice used 996TT, they are a hoot of a car...prices keep falling ever so slowly, probably will even more when the 997TT is finally delivered to dealers.....thank goodness I don't like the new version.. my EVO GT700 is a keeper....



02-16-2006, 12:12 AM
Hows it going Ben, GT700!!! The BigBad part never made more sense!! :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: ...man maybe i should have got a 996tt instead of this 03 m5...damn! Ill prolly end up putting a blower on this too though:D , still wont be a gt700...i need to make a trip to your neck of the woods to witness that beast in action! Check your pm's buddy,


02-16-2006, 08:58 AM
03 M5....very nice indeed (colour?), very good choice, love the E39 over the E60 anyway...are you going to visting Bill at Discovery Automotive....he can give 1000 HP if you so desire.....now that would be something to see...smoke show ala Arjun!

Anytime bud, if you are ever up in my neck of the woods, we can go for a good boot.:thumbup:

Hey check my PM...nothing there?



02-16-2006, 10:20 AM
Haha, as much as i would love to go CRAZY and take my car to DA, i imagine that would be too much for me, you forget i only have two wheels putting down power, not 4 ;) . I checked my pm and sent another one, i guess the one i sent didnt work lol, it wasnt in my outbox either, oh well, look forward to talking to you, thanks Ben,

Throttle Body: *SOLD*
Brembo 14inch BBK: Still Available

Thanks guys!

How much for the diff? How many miles on it? What is the lock-up %? Thanks.

04-04-2006, 01:08 PM
The diff is not off the car yet, 2600 plus shipping is what im looking for. It has 4k miles and is a quaife, as per my knowledge im not sure of the lock up, i was under the impression that the quaife operates like an lsd but cannot be viewed in terms of lock up. If they do have lock up though its whatever they shipped the qauife unit with.

Price change on BBK
BBK:$2300 shipped anywhere in US. (used to be 2600+shipping...any takers???)
