Unhappy

Hey, I am 16 and my dad gave me his '98 Bimmer 540iA w/85k as a lil gift. I have installed 2 12" subs in the armrest. I was wanting to install Angel Eyes on it and needed to kno if I bought halogen ones now if later on i could buy the xenon kit w/ballists instead of buying completely new xenons! Also, i was wanting to make my Bimmer fast and I live in Texas so Dinan is kinda out of the question right? If you could gimme a couple mods and some info about the angel eyes, i would appreciate it!

Go to bavauto.com and get an idea on much this will cost you (getting the angel eyes now and then the xenon kit).... If I were you, save your money and buy the whole thing at once... I just upgrade my headlights as well (cost, $1500) but worth every penny. Do a search on this forum under "angel eyes". We have had many discussions on this subject. As to how to make your car faster, maybe a chip but I'm not too familiar with them. I have only replaced my muffler with a hi-performance (tri-flo, from bavauto) on my 540i... it's suppose to increase an extra 10 horses (so they say!)

p.s welcome to the forum and hope you hang around...

Wow... let's just say that I am officially jealous of a 16 yr old. I'm 25 and I am trying to convince my soon to be fiance to let me sell my new VW GTI and get a 540i. She apparantly has other plans for my money.... like a friggin house. YAY!

Nice car young man. Enjoy it.

Hey bimmer540wsubs

Have you got any pics of your subs install. Also what subs are they. I have two 12" in my e34 bmw, but want to do a custom install. Was just wondering how yours looks.

Nice car by the eay. Insurance must be a fortune.

I don't have any pics right now but I will try and get you some. I do have a custom install. It was about 1200 and I am good friends with the guys that did it so they aren't cheap by any means. I have two 12" Alpine Type R's being pushed by a JL 500/1. Plus I have another amp mounted that isn't hooked up yet. It's an Alpine MRV-T420
