New to the site .. And new to bmw's switched from vw
I bought a 2000 528i a few months ago from the original owner with 119,000 miles on it.. Love the car! So far got new wheels for it. Planing on swapping the front bumper to the m5

Welcome! Be sure to search to find all the threads on M5 bumpers before pulling the trigger, there is a lot to know.

Before you waste money on Bling, save it for maintenance. The car is 13 years old, and will need major not cheap repairs.

And, there tend to be less hop-up parts for e39s compared to the factory turbo VAG cars.
