    Oh, jeez. Is that brake dust?

    Too lazy to clean up before snapping pictures. Must have left the dust on to cover up the damage! Some people are so odd.

    Right Front (Pass Side) Fender...

    Hi Chivas,
    Hey, if you're parting out body panels, I might be interested in the Right Front (Pass Side) Fender. I'm in CT so I could pick it up in NJ or NY. Let me know. [email protected]
  • 01-11-2011, 04:41 PM

    Trunk lid?

    Mine is developing rust around the key hole and the drain holes. How's yours?
  • 01-11-2011, 10:00 AM


    you my friend are clearly a WORKING FOREMAN!

    looks like NJ540 wins on the Chivas setup......

    EVEN THOUGH I am willing to help Dan out with a bunch of other stuff!!!!:)

    so I summon the boards master mechanics for their skilz

    PS looks like Bill & Rex get one more "dance"

    Installation...we can talk about it. (m)

    I'm the straw boss sitting in the lounge chair sipping a cold beer directing you on what to do, right?
    Whoever gets Chivas M5 diff will need the M5 driveshaft, which he has. He changed the side flanges so your 540 halfshafts will mate properly with his diff.

    The diff 540sport has will need the M5 halfshafts as well as the M5 driveshaft, which is about an inch shorter than the 540 DS.

    ??? no curb rub or rash ??? thinks its time for an eyes exam
  • 01-11-2011, 08:56 AM

    Re: Actually, I have the diff, driveshaft and 2 axles

    driveshaft length? different using M5 diff & half shafts or same as 540..........Jim/Vin RU installing for me :)
  • 01-11-2011, 08:39 AM
    to go! Go get another 540!! EuroDavid

    Chivas, I thought bout this&decided ur not allowed

  • 01-10-2011, 03:09 PM

    I've been looking for this for four years

    always was too much work and different players to tie together (and I couldn't install). This could work out perfectly, if it does I'm in.

    If there is any issue, I'll let you know.

    Actually, I have the diff, driveshaft and 2 axles

    They came from a low mile '00 M5. I had them all checked out and they are in perfect shape. I have them on Craigslist for 1400 right now.

    Re: 540sport had an M5 diff he was selling (m)

    thanks Jim, but if mem serves me correctly he either had only one, or neither of the half shafts.
