So a while back we did a mini feature on Chris Wilke’s Static E39 BMW, and as I was reading the comments I saw Marks had commented with a pic of his bagged 540, so I sent Mark a message to see if I could find out a bit more and Mark was nice enough to send me some more pics and info.
Mark originally had a 325 but after 298k is shat itself so a replacement was required. He bought a very wrecked 540 for $800 which is peanuts in land of BMW and after what looks like a shed load of parts from Bavarian Autosports including; passenger wing, passenger rear door, tailgate, front and rear bumpers, windshield, sunroof, passenger headlight, passenger mirror and taillights, he then painted his old 19″ ADR’s with chalkboard paint, slammed it on some coilover’s but then that wasn’t enough so he converted to air. He now has a very respectable slammed 97 540i. Which is rad.
