    540iT Purchase

    Does anyone know this 540iT?

    Just found this for a friend and he purchased it. Im looking to see if anyone knows any background on it. I believe it came from washington before it was in IL. The plan is to S62 swap it...

    Yeah that is the first thing I laughed about. It needs a little love under the hood but not too bad. It is said to have a DUDMD Tune I'd assume including the 4inch MAF housing tweaks which is hard to really know unless someone dived into the .bin file to confirm. I noticed it has an Alpina trans flash as going into sport mode it only has M mode and no more S mode as the Alpina defaults standard D mode to sport mode. The upper hose blew on the way home which dumped all the coolant. Luckily had a spare used upper hose that was replaced at a gas station and bled the system good. The owner is not a forum guy so I will update the thread as it goes along...
