    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Ian Taylor in Horley, Surrey, RH6 postcode. I'd only use them but there must be somewhere nearer to you?

    Oh, and I ordered a set of chrome wheel bolts for the rear wheels to replace the black ones currently fitted, so they now match all round, plus 40mm chrome lockers for the fronts, due to the 15mm spacers. All from Precision Parts who were really helpful on the phone when I couldn't see what I wanted on their Amazon store page.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Thanks Dan, very pleased with their work. it's a local company to me just 20 mins walk from home and they specialize in classic restorations, so this was a walk in the park for them! There were only three small and fairly unnoticeable scuffs and a big stone chip on the N/S A pillar, but you know how it is! No, I'd say that the external plastics and rubbers are in pretty good nick and I've noticed none that are brittle or faded. It was definitely a Tokyo car which is confirmed by it's BMW service history, all services having been carried out at the Tennoushu service centre. Possibly yours was from the other end of Japan but I wouldn't think climate varies that much. It's only the wiper arms that need attention now, but they scrub up well with the occsional application of tyre and bumper gel. I really should remove and paint them .

    Collected mine from the bodyshop late this afternoon. All minor corrections complete and rear bumper removed and sprayed. Doesn't look any different in the pics, but perfect in reality...

    Style 66s on my E34

    I think the 66s look okay on the car, but knowing that they are E39 kit they look a little 'wrong' to me. However, someone 'not in the know' may think they're fine, so it's just a matter of personal opinion. And yes, sits rather high as well.

    Tinted windows

    I'd agree. Take it back to the installers who did the job and ask for them to get it sorted.

    The E39 First World Problems thread

    Yes, I read that - brave man! I just don't go anywhere near car electrics because it would all end in tears for sure.

    Welcome to the forum Adam. Post your query in the appropriate tech section here, you'll hopefully get some responses in that area.

    The E39 First World Problems thread

    I guess it might be possible. Just need to find somewhere to do it, although the idea is to actually replace the head unit/display with something more capable.

    Just got my bargain Imola red E39

    Welcome along. Red really does suit the E39, rare as well.
