Thanks, I really like yours also! Those BBS RKs you have there are gorgeous!


Teins are pretty good. Much less harsh than the H&Rs on my previous touring.

I've been trying to get center caps, but the original Simmons ones have to be ordered from Australia and with shipping comes to around 160 which seems a tad bit too much IMO. I guess I should look for some generic ones lol.

Guys I'm selling my e39 540 touring. Probably one of the cleanest around with a documented maintenance history.

Link to sale with plenty of pics

Thanks, man.

Personally, I would go for the $160 caps. Sounds excessive, but BBS caps run in that range as well. IMO, it would finish up your look, AND reveal you are running some rare wheels.

I'll order them soon. The AUD has weakened, which will work out better for me.

All this means is that I am going to have to refinish my wheels soon to make them minty like yours.

You noticed the missing mirror cover, didn't you? It has been sitting in my garage for like 2 months, but I never seem to remember to pop it on

I was looking for a Touring for almost 6 months and finally picked this one up. I am very happy with it.

It is just stock struts with H&R springs. It rides very well for how low it is.

Hr Race springs? That is crazy low! What kinds of fender work have done on the rears? My car is on HR sport springs for a non sport model, barely dropped my car, but now my rears rub :/

Is that a Dinan muffler? It looks nice!
