Don't some of the 2000-2005 share the same sport wheel airbags as the E39?? It doesn't really go into specifics on which BMW airbags are faulty other than them being takata brand.

Have you checked to see if the non working speakers have blown? It wouldn't be a surprise in an old E39. There could also be something wrong with the wiring. If it's the speakers then no big worries...

Up in Oregon, our gas stations have 87, 89, and 92. The gas cap says min 91. So I always used the 92 regardless of price because I want my car to run great with no loss of performance. :)
