Default Not a Volvo Video

This is my Dads 540i exhaust note....Well....what the little camera speaker would pick up. It sounds awsome in person, and even better under load.
Hope you guys like it: (Click Here)

Well about six months ago, we noticed bad tire wear. We put it on the stands and turns out it was a messed up wheel bearing and the front H&R coilover Struts where flubbed up.
So long story short...we took the front entier front and rear suspension apart and we will be replacing them with all new parts. He is having problems with the sellers of the H&R kit, for when we had the rebuilt, by bilstein (and he didnt relize they had a lifetime warrenty), on of the seals is gone and there doesnt appear to be any in America right now. So we have to wait until the Parts can be shipped from Germany [:@](F***). We are also doing custom poly inserts for the suspension bushing to tighten up the ride.

Current mods.....well not that much:
Engine is stock, but has an AC Shnitzer chip, custom CAI, and a custom Exhaust, which you just heard.
I believethey areStoptech Slotted Rotors and Performance pads, SS brake lines and Stock drive terrain.
Suspension has: H&R coilovers, Dinan "Fixed" camber plates, M5 rear lower chassie brace, Staggered AC Schnitzer Rims (19x8.5 F, and 19x9.5 R) with Bridgestone Potenza RE05A pole position tires, and Eibach swaybars.

Wow, sounds like a beast for sure. I know that a 540 out of the box is a monster alone, I can only immagine one with all those toys!

Thanks.
Yeah we went to Williow Springs Raceway a couple years ago in it, an it did pretty good.
My only complaint is that it is a heavy car, and that BMWs cost way too much to fix anythingor modify.
I think my dad would like to rock a BBK on it, but he has to put money else where right now (damn house-hold appliances).
