thought id post a couple of pics, recently done a deal against my 530 touring for this 540 as i was pestering the lad for age s to sell it me lol as it needed a box so a deal was done and finally had a great basis for the mods i wanted to do

 

it got fully wet flatted and polished to give a nice deep gloss shine as i hate orange peel, my 19 paras fitted, the spec of the car is nice, even power boot :)

 

ive recently fitted double glazing as well, and just finished fitting full airlift air ride into the car with all new arms as well, and chopped the spare wheel out a bit to create a route so i can run dual exhsusts properly :)

 

i have full leather lower dash, consoles, door cards to eventually fit in champagne, as well as contours, that  i will be converting to heated and active massage, door blinds, and also e38 headrest mirrors and tables to be fitted to contours as well. it shoould be a ncie spec car when ive finished as i plan on alcantara roof lining and maybe full boat space too, with  anice clean stereo install to be able to keep load bay as well

 

some pics

Looks really well that @richyx ;) Just commented on it over on FB!

 

Shame you're selling the Alpina's, IMO they'd suit the car better, much classier lines 8)

i hate multispoke wheels mate, as well as the costs of the bits for them, as i bought new badges, valves and cap pads all genuine alpina at silly money, plus the refurb im surprised they havent sold considering what im aksing for them, possibly due to being square set up but then staggered is no difference in looks or not much anyhow

 

but if i have to use them for winter i will as paras are alot rarer and look better being they are dished

Yeah; alloys are horses for courses and a very personal choice.

 

I like them TBH; in 19s they're perfect for an E39 ;) 

 

I haven't seen them for sale though and agree, it always seems to be that folk want a staggered set up or not at all; don't get that. They can still put spacers and wider tyres on the rears :lol:

That looks well sick (as my son might say :roll:). The load area of the E39 tourer always looks so cavernous with its high sides.

 

A pair of new reg plates are needed though to replace the current ones, if you don't mind me saying.

That white insert on the lower part of the tailgate is an Alpina item too. 

 

How much are you asking for the square set of 19's?

it is yes, i managed to probably find the only one brand new in the box lol at  a bargain price at that lol

 

wheels are up for 1200 but lowest is 1k the refurb cost me 400, badges 110 and valves 44 let alone the removal and fit of tyres and balance, sort of wish i left them in the rough state and took the offers i got before hand

got the heating elements in and active massage into the contours, just got to get brackets welded on for tables then ready to dye in champagne

 

one issue i came across was for head rests, the motor is longer on comfort than it is contour yet head rests are the same height and shape but the mirror versions stuck up about an inch, so took the leectrical connectiosn off and swapped them over so head rest sits flush70069138_10156088139896735_5065495561457631232_n.thumb.jpg.523ef7f58f59d971e02a52513ab19de8.jpg70237534_10156086688771735_5163734545987534848_n.thumb.jpg.7aa3843f7917f5be1843c4a779cfe4ea.jpg69876130_10156087876961735_3195217572416978944_n.thumb.jpg.eda4767c38a3287611a83c627b56f993.jpg69819084_10156088139996735_8969361851288649728_o.thumb.jpg.a65ff367c1d13fc70b164c643a87b06c.jpg

Just beware of it's weight if you're considering fitting it; my car had it from brand new as well as the powered tailgate, and BMW could not get it to work completely correctly due to the extra weight. I overhauled and refilled the fluid in the system when I got the car and it now works but still needs a light touch to start it off. I don't know how much it would affect a standard manual lift tailgate but I would imagine it would get through the shocks a little quicker.
