    Lake victoria behind driver's seat

    you realy need to lift the carpet a bit to check the foam underlay not soaked as well, and check the front as well as on the drivers side by right hand side of seat under carpet and underlay there is a fuse distro box houseing high capicity fuses if water gets in there it can play havoc with the electrical systems on e39s

    MK Motorsport wheels

    put a shout out to @dennis cooper hes your man for all things wheel related 20x10.5 you will struggle rear arches will need a roll i would think i assume rear is on air ? and tyres will need to be rubber bands. x25 ratio (http://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp) use this size calulator to get a better view of things i run 9.5 x19 rears on 265x30 on a et17 but not ideal , so going to et20 with 12mm spacers which is about as low you can go with hub centrics as et 32 in standard fitment (style 125s) e60 fitment ( board and sleved) to 74.1 personally i think 10.5 is a non starter unless you are after the euro look and all that in tails messing with the suspension etc but see what dennis says enjoy edit you beat me to it dan seen any on a e39 ? dan
