VEHICLE STORY

, Car purchased on 10th december 2016 with 125k miles on it. Full spec bmw 520i e39 1999 and ive given her the name stephanie .Her original paint was pearlescent blue with alloy rims. Since it was my first car i wanted to go all out with the customization. Stock numbers were 145 hp and 160 nm with 0-60 in 10.5 seconds. Mod list: m bumper , black 17in ac schnitzer 5 spokes, grey metallic respray paintjob, air filters , muffler exhaust, ecu remap and dyno tune , audio system. Unusual car to see modified which makes her even more special and she truly is a pleasure to drive and even drift sometimes. Now , she is my daily driver however gas mileage is terrible resulting in putting gas in every once or twice a week. This is probably because i cant resist flooring it whenever i want to overtake or troll tailgaters.. I plan on a bigger bmw engine swap probably a m52b28 and a refreshed automatic gearbox. I love this car for its convenience and looks and even its unique exhaust note. The interior is a extremely pleasant place to be whether its relaxing in the backseats or drifting through corners. The audio system is one of my favourite things in the trunk as i love music after cars. Most importantly i always look back at her whenever im ealking down the stret staright after ive parked:)

It looks good! What did you cut it with?

[]Alex chris Marshall

Thanks! I had a guy at the exhaust shop do the cutting , i think it was probably a box cutter not sure tbh

[]Blake Hill

Oh okay I just took mine to a shop to do a muffler delete and it sounds so much better now

[]Alex chris Marshall

What model is it?

Nice , mine is a 520i but theres no option on wheelwell to list it as the 2.0L

[]Blake Hill

I don't think I've ever seen a 520i before

[]Alex chris Marshall

Where i live there common , but ive tuned mine to the level of a 530i just about

[]Blake Hill

Is that the stock rear bumper?

[]Alex chris Marshall

Yes just had to cut it to fit the tailpipe.
