LPG conversion(44p per litre=35mpg equiv)
LSD from 750i fitted
Fully polly-bushed rear with locking collars
All 4 cats removed-which helps give a wonderful exhaust note
18"X9 rears and 18X8 fronts
Sport kit
Full closure alarm/imm
Lowered 30mm
25mm hubcentric spacers on rear
155mph speed limiter removed(so should get close to 170mph!..apparently)
Induction drainpipe
Traction control removed
AND best of all it will go up Bidston Hill at 30mph in 6th gear!!!

fookin quality mate, my old man had the E34 M5 a few years back, and it was brilliant, a guy who used to work for him had a 540i Estate from new back then too, they are fantastic!

Yeh I've had two M5s and they felt slower than the 540i under 3k revs but then faster above 3-4k revs as you would expect.There is a supercharger kit available to give an impressive 450bhp...which would be interesting...
