dinan preformence mods done!

well all i can say is wow, the car was incredible before, but now feals much more responsive. while it allways had alot higher speed passing power, its hard to beleave a cold air intake, throatle body and some sofetware can make such a noticeable diffrence

i think all in all, price came out to about 1500 bucks, not bad, i think its worth it, i hope to get it dyno's in the next few days.

while its no m5 or m6, its definatly going to hold me over till they come down in price a litter.

with that being said, my 650i was the bitch of the shop, heres a little list of what they had

ford gt40

lamborgini diablo vt

about a dozen assorted porsce 911's some gt3, a slant nose, a few current gen 911 and a couple last gen

e39 m5

bmw Z8, this by far was the most impressive, first, its f'ing big, i allways thought it was a small roadster, second the interiour is the most luxurious i have ever seen, it was getting 30k worth of mods done to it

and im sure im missing some stuff but just though it was funny that my 6 series was essentially the runt of the little today

So tempting... And you can still stand proud. There's always someone with a more expensive car.

so true, with that being said, i think i want to sell my 6 and get 2008-2009 m5 when the warrenty expires, next december,

was thinking about the f10's but really think i like the e60's better. throwing in a great sounding v10, brembo brakes, and a dinan s package and it will be just sillly

just dont like how the 1,3,5, and 7 looking the same anymore

yeah, its like, oh **** thats a nice 5 series, oh wait, thats a 3.

yeah, as much as people didnt like him, bangle, really gave some thing unique to each car was somthing unique.

the 5 had bold agresive style
the 6 was looking like nothing eles on the road
the 3 was sleak and smooth
the 7 was larger then life
the roadsters were very sharp looking

There are definitely deals out there to be found. I found the throttle body on Craigslist for $225 (no core required), intake on eBay for $525 shipped, front strut brace on eBay for $315 shipped, and the exhaust for $1000 shipped. All parts were brand spanking new and I did the installs myself except for the exhaust, which was only $60.
