Door Pannels Help fast.

Hi i found a set of 4 door pannels off an M5 they are 2 tone black and grey. under $100 for all 4... which is crazy. I have an all black sport interior so I think the grey part will match the grey headliner and will give it a nice sporty look. and i also love the fact the they are leather. so now for the question. Does anyone Know if M5 door pannels will fit perfectly on my 530i???

Thanks for all replys

I'm pretty sure they will fit, almost positive. A friend put the complete M5 interior into his '98 540. I don't recall him saying anything about having problems with the door panels.

The panels will fit.

Hope those panels are not the panels listed on ebay as the auction fine print says its for one panel plus the car has had water(flood) damage. Leather will certainly peel soon. IMO

Are the M5 panels different? I don't know that I have ever seen any of them and compared them to ours.

The M5 panels have a leather inserts and and leather arm rests. And some had chrome trim around the speaker grills. (Some of the things I have noticed but there may be more)

I went back to the junk yard today and picked up the door pannels and as i am about to pay some fagit who is prob. the manager comes out of no where and asks the person who sold them to me how much he had sold them for. so he told him $100 and he went off on him and said not a dollar under 350. i offered 200 he said i can take the front 2 for that. so that was a waste of time, and now im suddenly interested in door pannels...

Too bad the manager showed up on that one! That would have been the deal of the century. Seems like everyplace is coordinated on the price of about $100 - $125 a panel.(sucks)
