    Which headers

    Actually I think the 4-2-1's give more mid-range and the 4-1's give more top end. As the E39 isn't exactly short on mid-range I went for VM 4-1's which I'm very happy with. Sadly he no longer makes them.

    He's not valuing it to sell he's valuing it for insurance so it's how much it's worth to him,how hard it'll be to find a mint 540/6 with that few miles with those options, and solid body, then spend a few k on paint, and even more on sc. It's how much it cost him to recreate that. That's what I'd insure it for if it were me but each to their own. Valuing it to sell would be different.

    That's a picture of it fitted to a Sport/M5 bumper (the difference is the diffuser). So I'm going to say yes

    Pre LCI halogen main bulbs

    Nice to know you like them ! They are my favourite halogen bulbs and are excellent value for money. They aren't your average eBay stock - these are actually made in Japan ! I used to run them before I went with HIDs. I still have them in my fogs - look spot on and match pretty well with the HIDs.

    Hi Doc, I have a feeling that in post number 9 you wrote, the picture you reference isn't an E39. I might be wrong, but if you look at all the components there, they differently shaped to the others and also to pictures in other threads and forums where the underside is shown. I know you are researching, so get your car up on a ramp and take pictures. We'll exclude the Touring, but as per above, the E39 M5 has it's own floorpan which isn't shared with any other E39 model. The rest are all the same. You'll need to budget in a quality quad exhaust conversion if you want to use/fit an ACS diffuser. The better solution is the method which connects to the oem pipe further behind the wheel well and curves around it. The method to connect by the tips and run along the diffuser isn't such a good method due to issues with heat potentially melting the diffuser and mis match exhaust gas output. Saying that, Hayward and Scott who make high quality exhaust systems will do the along the diffuser method both correctly and efficiently and well supported etc. The last time I got a quote from them to do this was around the £750-800 level a few years ago. On a Petrol car, I'd absolutely go with H&S. As my car is Diesel, then the sound doesn't matter as much so I'd probably use the best of the budget stainless steel options which is Powerflow and I'm lucky to live a street away from one of the best franchises for them - his work is excellent! other powerflow franchises have 'varying' levels of quality.... As for the last item, then that image looks photoshopped to me, so I'd doubt if it will work/fit. Give Roy at CA Automotive a call and ask if his ACS style Carbon Fibre diffuser and undertray can fit a non M5 E39. Lastly, have you found and purchased a ACS diffuser/undertray as yet?! Cheers, Dennis!

    No I don't think I am, this is a problem with doing something that isn't top of the range, nice as it is (and it is) it's never going to be a m5 and that will always reflect in the price, unfortunate I know,but I guess 10 k isn't too far from what I would think its worth. A very good M5 is north of 20 k and a good one is 10k so...

    Value my 540i

    I'd say a bit less than a average m5 but no where near the price of a very good one.

    Value my 540i

    I'd say the value of a good 540i/6 plus the supercharger cost or maybe similar or slightly less than an equivalent M5? C.

    No - you need the Sport Auto option to have paddles. The advantage of buying manual is that they should be cheaper and easier to strike a deal upon - check the reverse gear shift carefully as a small number have had issues

    That one you saying is se has been chopped. If you have a sport there are two ways. Either across behind bumper or tightly around the other side. Bit more difficult to make. I will try and find the pic of mine.

    Gearbox woes, oh dear

    Seems like you possibly have the start of a reasonably common issue with the torque converter shaft seal. There's even a BMW service bulletin about it... Either way seems like you are doing the right thing - TC swap/rebuild and fluid change should sort it. Good to spot it before damage to the whole box.

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Drove it over to Munich Legends for the meet (last night) and met Simon and his lovely Avus M5 - I think the cars were the only E34 visitors there.
