The question about if you should add a second battery and split charge system depends on when you know which amplifiers you wish to use and their current draw specification. That all depends...

One thing is for sure is that they're definitely NOT OEM Style 343 wheels. The genuine Style 343 only came in 20 inch sizing.

These are likely to be imitation/replica wheels and either...

Hi,

I'd say remove the rest of the telephone modules as they're not needed. Hopefully once that's done, you'll not get the spurious sound.

Welcome to BMW firstly!

This forum is perhaps 99.5% USA orientated and they didn't get the 520i version in the E39 range, along with the Diesels - their petrol is so nice and cheap!

Stock suspension won't provide what the OP is asking for, which is wanting to run a significantly low ride height.

Hi,

OEM BMW Style 42. They come in a 2 piece configuration. One of the better looking E39 OEM wheels for sure!

Any E39 hood/bonnet fits as they didn't change throughout the model production run. If you need an E39 hood, get an E39 hood.
