If you are not a very spirited driver then you are right you don't need a chip or suspension.

Hon, I am a spirited driver. In 2000 miles in Europe, there was one guy in a Porsche in Swiss Alps and another guy in an Alpha in Germany I couldn't stay up with and that's only because it was obvious they knew the roads. (They'd get away from me going over the crest of every hill and around blind turns.)

The stock 540i is enough for Europe. There's no way you need more here in the US. What are you going to do with it? Smoke up your tires at the stop lights?

Matter of fact, at the factory, I was talking with the BMW guys about 540i versus the M5 and I'm telling you, they thought it was just hysterical that Americans think they need M5s.

Do what you want with you with your money but it just strikes me that some people have more dollars than sense.
