The carb conversion was done by FoRmAtEEr, but he still has the original components so I might swap it back at some point (he said I can have them). Also, if someone has knowledge of these old cars, I posted a question in the E12 knowledge base but it looks like the people there are not regular members any more.

Picked up a New Winter Beater....
2003 E39 540iA M Tech Individual with 32,000 miles (53,000 Kms)... Individual Sepia Metallic (Code#474) exterior with Champagne interior and individual stitching as well as a two-tone steering wheel. The interior trim is the ultra rare Birke Anthrazit (Black Birch). Equipped with all options except Navigation and Park Distance Control.
Has three faults... One pixel is missing on the lower level of the dash display, the original equipment 18" M-Parallels have been replaced with 17" style 66 wheels and the clear protection film on the hood has faded a little over the last 14 years.
She drives beautifully and the auto transmission in sport mode is quite responsive. Vastly different then my SMG equipped M3 or M6. Obviously it's way to good to drive in our salt laden winters here, so I'm still stuck using the old E36 but I'm really happy with this new addition to the stable.
