Sorry car noob here, I'm only 17 kinda just learning, but I know enough to know BMWs are the best! I have a e39 540i and the engine is messed up so me and my dad are gonna buy a new one, are you telling me you can put an m5 engine in a 540i? If so around how much will that cost me? I was already gonna put the m5 bumpers/make it dual exhaust but like I said I'm still a noob :P
