Hi,

 

I used to be a trader on here when i broke E39s for a living and had a heavily modified E39 540 drift car

The arse fell out the e39 parts market and i moved on to other things. Im now the owner of DriftlandUK www.driftlanduk.com

 

I sold the 540, then bought it back and painted it yellow, hated it and sold it again. Thanksfully the current owner painted it grey again.

 

I tried loads of other chassis as drift cars and none of them felt right to me, none of the nissans or toyotas could take my heavy right foot and love of clutch kicks. So i ended up back in a 5 series but this one is a bit of a mongrel .

 

I cant take credit for building it , it was build by Jankes who is on here i think. Its an E34 running E39 M5 5.0 v8, it runs a full nissan S14 front end set up and is incredibly light coming in at 1150kg with fluids.

I run 17x10 5x114.3 et10 7twenty style 49s up front and i have 8x 18x10.5 5x120 et 15 rears with 265/35 tyres check out 7twentys wheels for some great spec 5 series wheels

Recently got to do some night demos at Angelsey in Wales , terrifying. 120mph 4 gear sideways in the dark is a scary experience.

Big plans styling wise over the winter, im not a fan of the look at all just now

 

I have a sport rear bumper and skirts to go on. front bumper with ZENDER splitter, more arch work so it can go much much lower then a full respray in Driftland team colours which is Laguna Seca Blue.

So yeah HI. Whos got any cool stuff for e34s or E39 m5 engines for sale?

Welcome back, noticed your old e39 up for sale in the past, and it always looked mean, was a fan of that and the new one sounds/looks fun too, Sam
