After looking at that monster m5 witha supposed 1000 hp or somethin, I got the following ideas. Yes or no on the following....
Remove the front high beam for more air flow, put back my powerflow kit( wich i think i should do regardless) buy a performance MAF, and now i need ideas for weight loss, as the number 1 enmey of speed is weight, and e34 535s have some fat asses. Any thoughts?
spare tire, rear seat, passenger seat, a/c, stereo, speakers, passenger windshield wiper, drive with 1/3 full tank of gas, window motors... switch to manual, jack, buy lighter wheels, and if necessary totally rip out the carpeting on the inside..
ya, i just bought 18s, which arent too heavy, but arent an improvement, either. I ditched the spare, and i was thinking making a good sub enclosure in that space<audio gear is acceptable wieight> I was thinking carbon fiber hood trunk as well, so does anyone know where i might find those 2 things? Also any thoughts on high beam removal?
