              Bought this beauty 4 yrs ago for 3k with 147,xxx miles on the clock.  So far it's bone stock except for depo smoked smiley headlights with Morimoto 5k H1 HID's.  1yr after buying it I got a new exhaust off of a 95 540i with minor surface rust for a whopping $15!   Plans include an M54B30 swap, (unless I can convert it to diesel!).  Rebuild the tranny to handle more power and torque, upgrade the suspension with Lemförder parts and poly bushings throughout and fit it with Lowtec 60/30 springs and Lowtec shocks/struts.  I replaced the thrust arms with BavAuto arms with poly bushings. Want to either install M-Parallels, or Beyern Mesh Staggered in black.  Also, bring the leather back to life, find rear sunshades and a full respray in either Alpineweiß or Mineral White.
