Sport kit
Full closure alarm/imm
Lowered 30mm
25mm hubcentric spacers on rear
155mph speed limiter removed(so should get close to 170mph!..apparently)

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...
