Is it just me or are all 540i's painted Oxford Green Metalic?
I haven't seen one in any other colour!

yeh i got that with my first 540. i just ignore the cavaliers & their ilk but i cant seem to resist lexus's (lexi?) camaros mustangs etc. my latest 540s got a chip, a higher torque LSD, bilsteins, etc. it really leaves em behind. much more powerful now. and the handling improvment with the stiffer suspension is really surprising as it handled so well before. i used to feel real superior till i got on here & saw what others had vdone to theirs, now i see ive got more work to do . i love those wheels i MUST have some. i feel like i need a shorter sidewall on my tires. ive also come to really dislike the amber headlights, so i need some clear replacements. orange just doesnt seem to match my oxford geen anymore. anyway i ramble.....

yep my last one was gold, but ive seen them in all colors. funny though most e34s i see that arent on here are trashed. what kind of person could let a beautiful peice of machinery be neglected like that?

It will say the colour on the right hand side front shock tower... maybe something like Oxford Grun metallic, which is absolutely beautiful in the sun.

BmwMan92- My trans has been acting funny as of late. RPMs running a bit high for my taste. Auto's suck/ considering a manual swap out.

broke college student..i remember those days all too well. was a long time ago but still engraved in my memory!!

Rims are finally one. Yes, I know about the wheel gap, but finances say rims now, lower it later. God, they look good on it.
