    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Which bulbs did you go for. I've ordered the 8000k ones, just interested to see how they look. Also have the Osram Xenarc ones in the garage that I've not touched...

    If the E39 hadn't been invented

    Looks wise, I think the E39 has the touring fairly well done: I agree though; the Ovlov 850 T5R or V70 R 'flying wardrobes' got their looks very right; proper boxy, which suits the car to a tee

    I've found this to be superb so far; been great when the cars been fully loaded and with 4 passengers etc

    Another touring fan here... Always wanted the E39 in touring guise, just took me 3 attempts to get to it The practicality of the rear is great for me, no 4 legged friends, but it gets plenty of use for firewood, gym/training stuff, stuff for the garden etc

    PDC module

    Welcome to the forums Anton Ask this question in the relevant E60 tech section further down the homepage. This is just General Chat, so not really car related and your question will get lost in here

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Mine have been on for a good month now and well bedded in We've already had some fairly cold weather and a lot of wet/cold weather, the winter tyres come into their own then However, hold your thoughts as the forecasts, so for, for mid to later on next week look to be very cold & possibly snowy!

    Looks a good example; do wish people would take better pictures and review them before they upload them. Every one looks blurred as they've used a crappy phone probably Not bothered re a manual anymore, a big car like that needs to be an auto IMO

    If the E39 hadn't been invented

    I could go with that... Superb cars and one I'd still very happily own today, if I could find one in decent condition that doesn't have moon mileage!

    I've very few unfortunately; a lot were in a Photobucket account, but can't access it anymore, so I've no 'before' pictures of when I first bought it and the work that went into it etc These pics are of it being fitted with BC coilovers & being set-up; it sat on them, around 45mm lower than OEM with 12mm spacers all round on OEM E38 Style 32s

    Got it in 2011 pal; had it for around 18 months, sold it just after we moved to our new house and for some stupid reason, bought another MG ZT-T V6 That didn't last long as went out in a pals E39 528i and decided the E39 route was for me and then bought the slate green 530i I had
