Nice car, those ACS type II were hideous in chrome. You really brought them around with the white powder coat.

Does the 540 m have shorter gear ratios compared to a non-m package 540 ? or is it just more hp/torque ?

I'm pretty sure the box is the same. But they may have changed the final drive.
The motor is also the same.
