Excuse my ignorance but are there really a lot of people that want M5 door sills on a 540 or are you appealing to the M5 owners. Personally I don't want the M5 wanna be stuff on my car. :dunno:

actually i was just looking for the //m sills. I too will not have anything on my car that says m5 only because it isnt and im not a poser. just want to make the car a little sportier and agressive looking. Oh and i just bought a m5 dead pedal which is damn nice might i add. just says //m on it but has the aluminum plate....very nice :thumbup:


oh and one more thing....m5 interior trim in the silver...where can i get that for a decent price???

ok well i got to go clean the car, ttyl guys, and enjoy the weekend!!!

An example, I saw two kits for a 2002 540iA with NAV:

Matt Chrome Kit $720
Titan Line Kit $680

I ordered a new door sill for my car and they sent me an //M door sill by mistake. I liked the look of it and because my car has the //M sport option, it would have been a good choice. Only problem was I would have to replace all 4 instead of the one that was cracked. They do look really nice but not worth the cost of all 4.

Do you have pictures or a desciption of the difference between the two kits and do you know the difficulty level at which to install the kit for a mechanically inclined person :) Your help has been much appreciated. thanks again

I am sorry, no on the better description... I only was reporting what I saw on the parts board I check.

However, I understand the parts are not terribly difficult to replace. Some just snap in, while others do requre a little more work. Overall, once you have some ideas how to remove the pieces, it should be easy for a DIY project.
