E39 retrofitting, what have you done...

Recommended Posts

My e39 was a standard UK prefacelift SE spec when I bought it.


These are the following things I've added over the years starting from front to rear:

  • Custom facelift headlamps with bi-xenon projector for the low beam and LED high beam bulbs
  • LED angel eye bulbs
  • USA sidelights coded 
  • Sport front bumper with M5 lower grille
  • Yellow fog lamps
  • Universal bumper rubber splitter 
  • Gloss black double slant kidney grilles
  • Larger front brakes from the 530i/535i/540i/facelift 530d
  • BC Racing coilovers
  • Folding mirrors switch pack
  • Changed to Salberk folding mirrors, then changed to M5 style folding mirrors
  • e46 M3 SMG Steering wheel (functional flappy paddles)
  • Android head unit that looks like the widescreen nav
  • Heated sports seats
  • Black headlining and associated bits and pieces 
  • Rear power sunshade with black suede parcel shelf 
  • Sub and amp
  • Facelift tail lamps
  • Reverse camera that is built into the boot lid handle. 
  • Sport rear bumper
  • Twin exhaust backbox exhaust 
  • Colour coded bumper and door trims 
  • AC Schnitzer boot spoiler 
  • BMW style 81, then ASA AR1 alloy wheels 
  • Gel 3D plates
  • ModLight 2 install (welcome/goodbye lights, mirrors fold/unfold with key etc)
  • Tinted windows 
  • Coded doors to lock once traveling over 16km/h

Of course, on top of this, I've replaced things that need fixing and normal maintenance items
