First video to EVER make lol so don't be brutal. I'm hoping to get better on camera to where I feel comfortable with it and make minimal mistakes.

Pretty cool Zach. Thanks for the narrative as well. Might I suggest you get new brake pads prior to anymore high speed runs?

Also you didn't give the next challange. What's it going to be?

Steve

PS: Don't be surprised if the moderators pull your vid and you. I don't think they want to endorse such risky behavior as driving that fast, especially wihile trying to operate a camera (and with a lit SRS light - need to get that addressed man - airbags save lives)

The break sensor light is because one of the wires on the rear passenger side got taken out somehow, and the SRS light was from when I took out my seat without taking off the negative battery terminal.

But I will be saving up for slotted and drilled rotors with ceramic pads from R1Concepts and I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of the SRS light.


And the next challenge will be a vid of your exhaust, aftermarket or not. (Don't forget to rev it up )

The SRS light has to be reset with the SRS reset tool. It is not the same as the standard code reader/reset tool. Perhaps one of the indy mechs in your area will reset it for a very nominal fee ($10 at the most I would hope).

Dang it we don't have very many flat, nice, cop-less roads here in Salt Lake... the only place to do anything is EB I-215 but it's a big hill with not too much length to it... you can hit about 100 before you gotta slow down... -.-

To the Salt Flats, I guess!!

Lol. There's a lot of nice and long roads here. The trick is knowing where to go and when to get there.

Yeah man I've been to Houston and Dallas... those cities are so spread out it's unbelievable. We got sandwiched between mountains and barren desert here, so... no fun

I was unsure about that, but for some reason the german documents from the car say 535is, but when i run the VIN it says 535i.

there is rumor that there were a very limited amount of 535is cars built but I thought it was just rumor. If so then you have an amazingly rare car there sir. haha.

taken from the E34 Wiki: "A rare 535is model was available in some markets (not North America). It featured a limited-slip differential and sport trim. "

Alright here is the answer to the exhaust challenge. Just grabbed the gopro and made a quick video of the M5 exhaust on my 535i. Oh and I threw in the 0-60 video there at the end in response to Bloody Arro.

WATCH IN HD!



Next Challenge: Scenic shot of your E34 near some sort of water (river, stream, ocean, lake, etc. No puddles! haha. Unless its one epic puddle). Cant remember if this has been done or not but theres always room for more pics!

Love that deep sound, sorta like a Corsa. Now how about someone by the side of the road shooting a shot of your driving by?
