I was cruising on I-40 yesterday on my way to the barber shop when I notice a nice looking 5 series in my rearview coming up on my left in the passing lane.
I originaly thought it was an M5 from the look of the front and the nice 18" wheels. As he passed me I noticed that it was a 540i with exhaust and a nice "DINAN" badge.
We cruised for a little bit with me a half car behind him on his right until I merged in behind him (there was a delivery truck coming in my lane.) For some reason he thought I wanted to race him so he hit it (evident by the brief puff of exhaust.) Me being the guy I am, was not about to let him get away. We soon passed the truck in the right so I got over. I gave him a little wave as I passed him and I could see him smiling.
I didnt take it too fast, maybe 100 or so because it was evident of the outcome. He came up on the left and gave me a thumbs up, which I returned.
The most basic Dinan package for the 540i rates it at 305hp and 348lb/ft. I know it was a manual ( I am assuming it was a 6speed because it was a sport) because I see it as I went by. I'd pimp it!
