mannnnnn a long story and a lot of exercise.... but nah your right i havent been to college yet... i think ill go next year, since this o so amazing M5 is suppose to just be the best F***ing car in the world it "should" keep me happy but yea it should be easy i figure i sell this kit now right, and already get the jump on saving for the ESS M5 kit which is 6,500... so basically the plan is (which i just came up with this morning) is ill just get the M5.... slap some splitters back on it, some tint, spacers, my eibach rear sway bar, i got supersprint headers sitting in my room so ill put those on. Then itll already be faster than a Stock M5, so ill just chill and Save up for the supercharger.... Funny thing is a girl wouldnt even noticed i switched cars

Lol F*ckin girls dont see ****. But il Bet when you say M5 she will think diffrent of you for sure. Honestly how much would you be willing to let your 540i go for? because i know how it feels when you have mods on a car. It becomes harder for you to let go. and What yr M5 you plan on getting? BTW 19in CSL rims are sooooo sexy on M5s.

You still young so by all means.. How is it ya'll say?? YOLO?? Lol

My license is my Money maker... much more important than a status symbol.

How often are you going to open it up past 130mph on city streets.

Meh.. My 540 is fast enough.

Maybe I'll get an e60 550 somewhere down the line.

GL with your new car LaLa.
It will be a blast to drive (not to maintain).

If I were you I would have slapped a Quaife and ditched the single leg, You'd be faster than the ///M. Prolly easier on maintenance too. Your actual e39 looks great.

Depends what degree and which university you go to; along with how hard you want to party rather than working.

Somebody who trades a college education for something that does 0-60 quicker?

Something in my useless brain is about to short-circuit and blow-up.

College education does not determine success... Some of the most successful people in the world either did not go or dropped out...

And that 540 is way sexier than the ///M


P.S. what headlights are on your 540 ?
