Finally - E34 540it coming my way

[IMG]540IT - Driver side[/IMG]
[IMG]540IT - Passenger side[/IMG]

Its been a long wait - coming from Japan as they didn't import them to Canada, even get some racing dynamic wheels. 80 K km. Black on Black. I'm slightly excited.

Thanks to Derek at pacific http://pacificcoastjdm.com/

Sexy as hell dude... I would be excited as well..

Your going to have to do a serious photo shoot when she gets here, and as some of you may have gathered, I love the M60B40 motor to bits...

Looks like the Racing Dynamics logo goose.

And the M60B40 is a great engine.. just need a few parts from it for my B30 to make it up there with it in power.. so anyone know of any 540's for parts from 95-97 hit me up

Thanks for the feedback - waiting for this thing is killing me - will load up some good pics when she lands........ I think she is a keeper. That is racing Dynamics on the badges. It has 18" RD wheels.

Looks great. I almost went for a 540i touring as well...was a tough choice
