My Ride: e39
I got a 530, use to have a 328. e39 is a much better car IMO. Chassis feels super stiff compared to the flimsy e46 chassis. No subframe BS. Also, the steering is nice and tight. My steering in the e46 was loose.

I love mine, puts down wicked power from the M54B30, handles like its on rails(after my suspension ordeal). Stops like an M3(look it up) Room for 5. And looks badass.

I'm 21 and the looks I get from people are just jaw drops.
I hope you're joking about that. The M54B30 feels underpowered in my car, must feel even worse in a 5er. Not to mention the tq below 3500 is non-existant in my car, on a heavier 530 must be even worse
