Rear fog lamps to quad brake lights.

Mine already had a spot in the tail light. I didn't have to mod /drill anything. It was just a blank space. On the tail light backing I installed another brake light bulb.

Tail light malfunction

Check your bulbs you might have the wrong wattage or type. Not all 12v bulbs are the same. Some have a higher wattage which can cause this.

H&R or Eibach??

They're both about the same . Get the cheaper ones . The guys that have H&r say they're great and the guys that have Eibach say the same.. I bought eibach on my 540i with sport suspension.

Exhaust system for my 540i/6 e39

Cut off that "y" resonator see of you like it. If you don't like it just put it back on. I have catco cats and duals off the "Y" resonator. It's plenty loud for me.
