Stanced e39 in Ukraine. Boss Status.

This car was recently featured on my blog LOWERANDWIDER.com: http://lowerandwider.com/wheels-of-glory, but the blog is still not translated into English (my fault), so.... here are some facts about this amazing car.







This car began in 1999 as normal 540i with 4.4-liter M62B44TU. In 2009 it was purchased by my friend Pavel Kravchenko (aka Muscleman). The car was equipped with facelift lights and M-Technic bodykit and looked quite clean with BMW style37 wheels. But Pavel wanted his car to stay out from the crowd of gangster-styled-russian-bimmers and began with suspension. He ordered Weitec Hicon TX coilovers and wiechers front strut bar from me, being just a regular customer for me. But then he made some changes to his BMW that attracted my attention to himself and to his car.





First was a set of amazing OZ Futuras, ordered from well known German seller Felgen-Garage. Pavel was very precise in his calculations and ordered the wheels that should fit, But Germans appeared to be very generous and presented him with extra 0.75 of width for rear wheels. That mistake predetermined the future look of the car. When huge ballers were delivered, we were completely knocked out by their look. Fronts are 10х18 ET+2 with 245/35 tires, rears are ridiculous 1318 ET-5 with 265/35s.

Those huge wheels required custom rear wheel arches, that were made 2 months later.
Along with some fender work, Pavel repainted his car in it's original color and rebuilt the engine that had huge 430k mileage.







But stock 286hp were not enough for him and a supercharger from VF-Engineering was ordered and soon took it's place under the hood:



With Alpina 4.6 intake manifold, custom catless exhaust, Magnaflow muffler and M5 differential it gave the required power.

This car looks absolutely amazing in our harsh Ukrainian reality:







There are a lot of things that should be done to this car, but even now it can turn heads and blow minds.





Hope you all, BMW lovers, like the work done :eyebrows
