do you know how much a Dinan will do for a E39 540i????
: I have a 1990 Dinan 5 for sale, it has 60K miles(36K on the conversion)
: and is in PERFECT condition inside and out. There is a total of around
: $75K in this car(including the original purchase price)....I tossed $12K+ of
: the goodies on in the last couple of months(new wheels, tires, stress bar,
: lighting, bodie goodies and an Airbag sport steering wheel), this excludes a $3800 audiophile stereo that is 1 month old(Sony CDXC-910/Quart/Infinity/Audio Control/HiFonics). Following
: is a list of all the stuff done to the car. I will further that this was
: all done right with NO hacks or corners cut anywhere. This may be a lot
: more car than you are looking for but here it is anyway. The reason
: for selling is a change in my insurance situation that will let me by
: the Lotus Esprit S4 that I wanted in the first place...damn them! :)
: Looking for serious offers, Dinan has suggested that the car is worth between $26,500-32,500 and is currently located in Colorado. The specs follow:0
: Sterling Silver with the silver leather interior and has the M5 "Throwing Star" wheels in 17X8 front and 17X9 rear shod with
: Yokamhama AVS 235/45 and 255/40 17s. The rest of the car is standard
: issue Dinan 5(The BIG 4 piston 13" brakes, Stage II 3.722L stroker motor, regeared
: differential(LS) and stock ratio LS diff, Stage III suspension, exhaust, airbox, bushings,
: intake, etc.), personal
: touches are a Momo Super Anotomic shift knob, sport Airbag steering wheel,
: clear euro indicators all the way around, Euro Hella "black" projector
: headlight assemblies, M-technik front spoiler with air scopes for the
: brakes(no lame poor excuse for a brake duct factory M5 spoiler on this
: car!), AC S Kevlar wing(feather light and some serious downforce at
: speed), AC S side mirrors and single arm windshield wiper
: conversio(reduced wind noise and great looking too), the wheels of
: course and a modified(the engine proportions are differ from stock
: slightly) Racing Dynamics(yes the real one fron Italy) strut tie bar.
: Oh, can't forget the RD pedal cluster(much easier to heel and toe with)
: and M-Technic foot rest that I smuggled over from the Fatherland.
: The engine is at 290+hp and 310+ft lb of torque....a lot more torque than
: the M5 and all the horse power of the 540i Sport.
: There is no nicer E34s that I'm aware of, just different ones.
