    BMW E39 Sunroof Headroom

    Thanks all. I've decided on a different route with the car now. Need to try a true M car at least once in my life. Going to look at a M4 once this is lockdown and social isolation is finished.

    Glad to hear you fitted the trims. I've still got a set ready for when I find my next Sport. I'll take a look at your thread.

    BMW E39 Sunroof Headroom

    Thanks Dan, it's one of the best forums out there. Good to be in search of another E39. I'm looking for a Sport project ideally - given I still have half of the BMW stock room in my garage! Ideally a 3.0 Sport, but am not ruling out a 2.8 Sport or a 535i of some spec. Budget around 2k as I'm looking for one which needs a bit of TLC, but can be rescued.

    Thanks Dan, I thought as much unfortunately. I'll have to keep searching.

    BMW E39 Sunroof Headroom

    Afternoon all, Hope everyone is keeping healthy! I'm looking to return to E39's - sold my Sport in December and regret it. I have seen a couple of E39's which I like the look of - the only issue is they have sunroofs. I am just over 6'4 with quite a long torso. I fitted okay in previous E39's, but they didn't have a sunroof. Are there any 6 foot + people on here who have sunroofs and can you tell me what the headroom is like. Thanks for any information. Stu
  6. Afternoon all, I have x 4 brand new window switch packs for sale. Bought as spares for my E39 Sport (2002 manufactured). The set consists of - x 1 drivers side window switch pack (not for heated or folding wing mirrors) x 3 passenger side single window switches Can't remember the exact cost (may have receipt somewhere), but I recall the small window switches being around £30 each and the drivers one being around £70 - so total of £160 for the set - I'm selling them at half price. They really do freshen up the interior, especially if your current ones are worn and delaminating. Photos to follow. Stu

    I'll see if I have the receipt from BMW and I'll post up the part number.

    E39 Auto Gear Knob

    When I compared the two they were identical design (plastic shaft). It pressed on and clicked home just like the one which came on the car. No modifications needed.

    I fitted a brand new all leather auto knob from an E46 to my E39 535i this year - bought directly from BMW.

    The boot lid as can be seen has the common rust issue. I have a rust free boot lid also in topaz blue which will be sold with the car, no additional price.

    I should add, whilst the mileage is over 200000 miles, I think the service history shows how well it has been looked after. The first 100000 miles were done in its first 4 years.

    Front number plate fell off, hence there being no plate in some pics. Original plates will be refitted on sale.
