Thanks for the Recommendation

Thank you for suggesting this site. I have been on it a bit now and am finding out the answers to some of my biggest questions. It doesn't compare to our Bimmerfest e39 site but it is a good resource.

Thumbs up E39b

I have never seen an e39 like the one you have in your picture. That is AWESOME! How did you get it to look so much like a new 3 series?
