Its people like this that detur new members that could give helpful information I want no beef with anyone. I myself don't neccesarily believe everything he is saying and I agree that there is no way someone is going to drop close to 10 g,s on a car that will sell for prob under half of that. But that is still no reason to b rude like I said if u don't believe him then don't read it. Also thanks to everyone in this forum for help and support to keep trying even after I stood up for a kid that was stretching the truth.

Yeah I was wrong. There you happy! It seems like m5 S62 like to throw rod bearings.

There is no way I am dunne44 I don't even know who that is

My name does kinda look like a reverse reflection like what leonardo da vinci used but not a chance that dunne44 is that smart to do that.

Not picking on you, you just donít seem to drop itÖ You joined within days of getting banned for life for the terrible things youíve said on here under Dunne44.
You have the same occupation as him, the same car, and react/interact just like him
Ironically both Dunne44 and hh3uunp blew up their motor and both are currently looking for the same engine replacements!

Get my drift? I wasnít born yesterday LOL, Iíll stop now and BTW, I am certain I am not the only one who noticed

I must say though, I tend to enjoy forums for the entertainment side of things nowadays since everything is already covered...

Well dunne44 got banned for 3 days but he made another account so he got banned for life. When did this dunne44s engine explode? I think he is currently on leave from Bf.c . I don't think there is any proof that I am dunne44 other than I live in the same state and have similar car.

I use photobucket.com and upload on that site - then use the IMG codes to post on the forums. No upload limits - easy to use - and best of all it's free

I don't think bimmerfest allows pictures of turbocharged e39s.
A couple people have run into this problem.

Heres what i have so far. The box is yet to have the beauty board over it but thats the easiest part along with the plexiglass so you can see my amp and cap set up. The viper alarm is finished but i dont have a key. Im waiting to get one so i can do the remote start on it. One pic has my alarm with the tv deck. The deck ended up being a piece of crap and doesnt have subwoofer output on it so i might upgrade it to something that does. The beauty board for the subs is going to be flat. So itll look like there are only 2 but really theres 4. Anyways quit complaining ill upload everything as i get it. I hope all of you can see the ones i uploaded. This is just the system the engine work is yet to begin. I had codes read and it seems to be fuel bank 1 and 2. Basically brought it down to either pre cat 02 or maf. The injectors and pumps are being replaced anyways but thats what i got so far. Questions and comments are welcome and your thoughts on the codes are appreciated as well since my engine knowledge is limited. I pulled P0170 and P0173.

Never liked the sound of subs, all the thump thump, extra weight, less room in the trunk for useful stuff. btw my .02.

Its not about the subs its about the box and how its built that creates the sound. But im running 4 Kicker cvr 12s duel coil. Those things bump so hard. Where i worked it was my specialty building boxes and tuning subs and stuff. I didnt want to do fiberglass because i realized you guys are right. No lambo doors no crazy paint. Just gona turbo mabe some suspension work. I didnt do a fiberglass box because first off weighs a ton. this one doesnt weigh too too much. And, its removable if needed. Rear right side of the car idk if you can tell in the pic is some scratches sister swiped it a bit. Ill upload the rims im going to put on there soon as well. But black on black. Going to make it clean. Wish i just put 1 12 instead of the 4 but whatever. whoever has it is going to blow theyre heads in half. Also running 2 interfire 1500 watt amps. And that cap is good. Everything is wired to 2ohms so it hiiiiiits.

But yea the box doesnt weigh more then 140ish. with the amps and 0 guage wiring and all that id say all together like 150 pounds extra. Great sound. Just more concerned about the codes. But those sensors arent too expensive. MAF for the botch one is like 200 from bavauto and the rest are between 60 to 100ish? Not too bad.

These are the rims im getting. I bought the full set with half n half tires on them for 250 dollars. Hes going to machine them to fit the car. This is the worst looking one the rest have like no damage on them. I can fix it then im spraying it metallic black. Would look way more tight then whats on there. I wana put them on now but cant cuz they gota be machined. So during the week while theyre working on the car hes going to machine it for me.
