If people thought cars like the 550i V12 E34 with a 6 speed was the ultimate E34 BMW, they'd back it up with real money... and not bid what a pristine stock 535i would go for with the same mileage and model year...

As for making this a personal hobby like alpinaguy who is an ex BMW mechanic; it makes logical sense for a guy like him..

....want to do all the other things we do to them.... springs... K&N filters.... shocks... alum control arms.... wind deflectors.... debadging.... wheels.... tires....chips... etc etc etc
We are boys and we have toys...and if we see one model of car we want it to be different and more powerful...or more beautiful...or more something... then any other one.

You are questioning the basic instincts of modern man....

(remember... sometime, somewhere...some neanderathal looked at his club and said..."hmmm, I wonder...bigger??? thicker??? tipped with rock????"

Just don't go there.... answer the posts with your opinion or don't answer....90% won't ever do it....and the 10% who do will be asked how they did it and how much did it cost and what are the part numbers???????
