    E39 M5 Extended Caramel Heritage Leather, complete

    I've just put one of these interiors up for sale if anyone is still looking
  2. I brought this to put in my M5 but changed my mind now so it's up for sale. E39 M5 full leather interior Includes Front and rear heritage leather seats- no rips or tears but general wear due to the Napa leather being so delicate. Door cards: They are fully trimmed in leather not like normal vinyl ones. See the stitching around the pockets. Drivers front and rear, good condition just some scuffs etc Passenger side have had airbags deployed. The front is worse than the rear, the rear can be popped back into place but the front has broken some of the tabs. My plan was to use an airbag panel form another door card and Transfer the caramel leather over to fix the problem. Leather lower dash a very rare option especially in this colour! Centre console with arm rest. All parts in good condition just a few scuffs here and there. Complete carpet for a saloon removed without cutting where the heater matrix is just needs a wet vac. Leather side panels for tunnel All the interior would look like new after a leather restoration with dye which was my original plan. Id recommend the liquid leather stuff as it works great. These parts are getting very rare to come buy now so get them while you can very few had the fully leather trimmed door cards. I can send more pictures if you like please drop me a message £1650 collection only. I'm firm on the price so no silly offers please

    anyone fitted the bmw performace brake kit to the e39

    They are I probably just didn't explain it very well. Look at this picture. see there's there normal 74.1mm centre bore that the wheel goes on. Theres then the bigger centre bore just at the bottom that the disc goes around. the e39 and e90 have the same size hole in the centre of the disc so it is a tight fit as normal

    F10 bits are expensive. Discs £800 a pair. Calipers I bet don't change hands for less than £600 a pair. I bet you could only run 18s maybe only 19s due to disc size. Someone needs to do the hard work of if they'll fit. Make prototype adapters to maybe not even be successful it would be a big outlay before starting any custom machining work.

    I got a price on 34110444771 which is the full kit front and rear just checked what a numpty lol. the discs go straight over as the hole in the disc is say 77mm and the disc sits on a recess that's larger than the 74.1 centre bore so they go straight on

    When the kit was first available it was about £850 which was about 4 years ago. At £1350 it isn't that bad I don't think as your getting brembo calipers which you would hope the quality would be better than the d2 and k sport etc

    The kit costs a lot more than £850 it's gone up a lit since the initial rush of people buying the kits

    Thanks for all the positive comments it's great to hear after it being a big old task. I personally think this setup would be cheaper to maintain than an m5 as the parts on an m5 cost more and they have issues like rod bearings etc which can be costly. 540is seem to respond quite well to superchargers from what I've read. Power is currently unknown till it goes on the dyno in the next couple of weeks. Heres a couple of drive by videos

    Well it's up and running and nearly finished. Enda came and mapped it yesterday I think we have a little more tweaking to do once I've got some miles on the setup Here's some pics Thanks for looking

    Well I've made a start Sunday after the car was washed it was time to attack. I started off with the engine bay looking like this A6452D08-AEE7-4DCA-A8A8-0FB5C4F615AE_1.jpg Photo by jon1465 | Photobucket Removed everything out off the valley And mounted the supercharger and made up the intake pipping from various different pieces That was Sunday over and then today it got stripped back down parts gone for paint and I've also done the valley pan gasket Also done today was 2 lambda boss welded onto the exhaust pipe ready for fitting an afr gauge That's all for now hope to progress over the next few days

    ok here it is! I plan on running the supercharger setup from a jaguar xjr/xkr A chap in America makes an adaptor kit so the jag head ports match the BMW head ports To get the charger to fit it has to be machined down Here it is all mounted to the engine I removed the old jag pulley so I can fit a quick change pulley that corrects the offset
