Damn sexy E39. Yeah I removed the Hood, and still got the trunk to remove. Looks bad. Removing the roof when i have enough to wrap it gloss.

Silver or AW e39s with gloss black roof always look amazing.

It's a rare color, I believe it was only offered for 2 years 2000 and 2001 on e39. I have only seen one other Sienna Red and it was on a Z3.

Yes you got it right, it changes color depending on the light. Sienna is a Red with Metallic copper and deep red flakes in the paint. I goes from a blood red in the sunlight to a dark red in the shade to a red copper at night.

"Daylight" color


"Shade or Dusk" color


"Nighttime" color

I didn't do the rear, but I can't remember exactly how much everything was as I did a full M5 bumper conversion and it had various parts. I did a full write up on the conversion, I saved a lot of money on doing the conversion myself (it's not that hard just time consuming).

Wow, your car looks amazing. Love the color and looks good with a black grill and a nice clean look with the headlight washer delete.

Mind if I ask you where you got the M moldings from? I've been wanting to get those for a while.
