    E39 style 66s

    Tyres not important as I’ve got some but bonus if they have them! Set of 4 staggered ideally but square sets welcome or a set of 9j square would be great! anyone have anything?
  2. I can do clear round indicators but with the amber corners, the us spec lights are a see through reflector, ours are chrome coated and then the U.K. spec amber colour goes over the top of that so there not transparent unless there stripped and then painted, it can be done tho, and all the U.K. spec lights have the potential for a bulb to be placed where the us spec ones are to allow it to be illuminated, on my own cars I’ve gone for amber round and corner and coded in us side lights on the round indicator,

    E39 5HP19 transmission faults

    I was lucky for my 5hp24 got a full set of new frictions and a full zf rebuild kit with all the seals for less than £50 on eBay! Worth hunting for they come up cheap sometimes, still haven’t used mine tho, and have 2 replacement boxes, and the one on the car still remains dead, the joys of having 3 e39s, this one remains bottom of list unfortunately!
  5. I’ll post a link with some vids the imagebb upload wouldn’t allow video upload, got a few vids showing the output, it’s amazing how good the light can be compared to the usual burnt up halogens or xenons that point to the floor with broken adjusters lol the lights on the e39 really are one of the weak links of the car, doing the bi xenon conversion and cotton rings really brings them upto todays lighting standards imo!
  6. I’m offering the adjuster replacement service as people may have seen In my other posts, but I wanted to post this with a link to some of the lights I’ve recently rebuilt, most e39 headlights are suffering the same fate weather halogen or xenon the adjusters are usually broken and the youngest models are 17 years old usually the projector bowls are burnt up and scorched dull through there years of service, theres 2 options a refurb or new, in case of xenons this is a £2400 bill for a pair new from bmw, and realistically not many people are going to outlay that! I can build to custom specs but the usual I build I do is new lenses (amber if specified or original silver corners) new adjusters evo xr 2.0 bi xenon projectors Ultra bright cotton rings if you have halogen I can supply oem D2s ballasts and there oem mountings basically the end result is the best a e39 headlight can be oem+ as there built to oem xenon specs being d2s etc here’s a link to an album of previous builds, the light output when finished will will wipe the floor with oem xenon projectors! https://headlightse39.imgbb.com/ i can rebuild your own lights or I have donor sets here I can build and send out on there own or on an exchange basis etc

    Headlight adjusters service

    I don’t polish the lenses as I’m not confident the finish will stay clear for all that long after. i offer upgrades my usual spec builds are from halogen to oem xenon + using oem hella ballasts including the Oem mounting cages, evo x-r 2.0 bi xenon projectors, cotton rings, new adjusters and new lenses they can’t really be any better after that, the light output far surpasses the oem xenon and added benefit of quad full beams here’s some pics of some of the work I’ve done for e39 owners, the ambers in these pics were also diy by myself and were originally silver etc https://headlightse39.imgbb.com/albums

    Silver Car, celis ambers

    This is my car lol, I’d guess this cake from the Facebook group lol, if anyone wants ambers building with new lenses and adjusters (also do evo-xr and cotton ring upgrades too etc) let me know! i really like the ambers now after I did them only orient blue 540i, on the silver car they also look great, every silver e39 looks the same! So it’s nice to have one that looks different and a little more retro with the ambers!
