Super-Sprint cost about half of the value of a 540i. Not worth it. I can have some made for $ 800-1000 performance ones at a shop down the street, otherwise if your performance hungry go for this setup:

- 3.15 Differential (from 540i Sport AUTO) (This will launch and add lots of power through out every gear, just gain some RPM at higher speeds)
- AFE Intake
- Exhaust
- HiFlow Manifold (Found on 95 740i/540i)
- Tune (Should be the last thing, they need to tune it with these parts installed)

As for the High Flow MAF, Throttle-Body from Dinan... its all BS. Had a friend who bought those.. Dyno'd it after with 1hp gain lol than we put them on another 540i and again no gains. Money thrown in the trash. Dinan is a pile of sh!t. They use parts from other BMWs. Like their High Flow Manifold is just an 4.4 M62 (NON-VANOS) Manifold. Big Brake Kit is just Rotors, Carriers, and Calipers from 750iL. I'll never buy anything from those guys. Its all name from them.

Hahah ive heard this before... True "intake manifold " is the same pn " as non vanos
Just has the numbers sanded off and no dinan logo on it, now i had the dinan set up cai maf thtottle body intake manifold (im m62tu) and muffler with their tune and i dynoed 318hp on my 540i/6 so if you just slap on some parts with out the ecu program i do belive the 1hp. Now agreed over prices for the power gain but what other company can say you keep your warranty with modding? That was then and now for tenmoney vf enigineering s/c was the best money ever spent!!! Lol now for headers im in the market for some im cali hook me up

Need headers? I am friends with the owner of a shop who makes custom headers. If you serious lemme know! Oh I no longer own my 540i. Sold and gone. It was a big love/hate thing which leaned more towards hate since I literally renewed that car with so many parts and yet still have me problems. All the new gaskets leaked after a few months
