Me and my buddy seeing how my 540i reacted to the recent mods of M60 high flow manifold and straight pipes cat back to a magnaflow #14834. Before mods the Z would catch up around the end of 2nd gear at 60-65 and I would be looking over at his quarter panel all the way to 130mph. He has ahad the same mods all along of stillen Exhaust, plenum spacer, and pop charger. Good to see my mods have done good! There is another vid of us going from a 20 roll where we pull dead even all the way to 110mph. This vid we also get up to around 110-115mph. Was a great drive down to mexico to do the runs...
E39 540i Instrument cluster pixels fixed
First test run before final reassembly, all pixels are finally back.
Materials used: enameled copper magnet wire 38 gauge, soldered to the PCB
and glued with Wire Glue (carbon based) to the panel. A thin layer of epoxy
to seal the glued wires. Procedure is as follows:
1. Remove the OEM cable, keep it for reference.
2. Clean both the panel and the board; credit card works well.
3. Cut enough wires to length, about 180 wires roughly 1" long, the shorter
4. Expose copper from enamel on both ends of all wires (I used solder bath
5. Set your panel so it won't move, use a strip of double-sided sticky tape
to hold your wires when you gluing them until the glue is dry.
6. Glue all wires, make sure there are no shorts.
7. Solder all to the board and test.
8. Apply a thin layer of epoxy over the glued wires to seal them
9. Modify the supporting white plastic piece so that it doesn't push on the
PCB board where the wires are now soldered. Basically the areas where the
rubber goes need to be ground off.
10. Assemble and enjoy!
2013 BMW M550d (381hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p FULL HD)
High speed Autobahn and country road Drive with the new 2013 BMW F10 M550d
and its world first 6-cylinder Tri-turbo
Diesel (381hp, 740Nm) supported by 8-speed ZF and xDrive system. The
outcome: Well, its hard to describe. Once you have driven the first meters
you instantly feel the weight of the car. It feels comfortable and heavy,
almost like a 7-series. At low revs and in comfort mode there is nothing
that distinguishes this car from, lets say a 530d. But once you hit sport
mode and press the gas all the way through it is just amazing how this big
ole bus rockets aways from anything else on the road. I can just tell you,
it is all about the torque!!! From 0-100 could have gone quicker but how
this car accelerates from 160 - 260 is unrivalled, at least in the diesel
class. I would like to hear your COMMENTS and make sure to LIKE and

BMW 540i vs Ferrari 430
Me and a friend just cruising when we run into a beautiful f430. It sounded
insane in person and was shooting blue flames out of the Exhaust... Was probably running rich, no pun
