Beautiful Day in Northern Illinois E39 pics inside !!!

Hi Everyone,
So it s been a while since I posted some pics and yesterday considering how nice it was outside here in Chicago, I thought I would go out and take advantage of this nice weather and take a few pics. Changes to the car that are shown in the pics are Laminexed yellow fog lights. In the pics I also have 3k bulbs alone with the lamined film over that making them appear that yellow.

Thank you for looking!! Comments Welcome!!

What does nice weather have to do with taking pictures in a parking garage?

One of my favorite E39.

Sweet ride and I like the fogs!

I also like the ride height, what's your suspension setup? coilovers & size wheels/tires?

TIA

Lip specs? And Headlight specs? Where did you get them with the white side markers or whatever they're called!?

Comments welcome

Beautiful looking E39 united, you can be proud of her.

Personally I would be too scared to lower mine that much, I would always be scraping the front under body plastic bits

Funny about all the ride height comments, I was thinking exactly the same thing. Sweet stance, nice clean E39 in my favorite color...just a tad low for my taste. I have to many large curbs in my local to have anything close to that low. My driveway alone is murder and forces the sideways approach.

Looks really good United. What wax are you using? I recently switched to Turtle Wax Ice. I haven't used the paste wax yet (just waxed it last week with the regular Turtle), but the detailing spray works fantastic. Much better then the Meguiar's Quick Detailer I was previously using.

Thank you very much!!!! I am scared about driving it that low sometimes but I am juat used to having it.that low. The only.thing that has ever scraped on anything is the lip but only once or two.times.

I had a good laugh at your expense on the title. A good day in Chicago means you can venture out to a parking building..??? Couldn't imagine what a horrible day means.
But sensational photo's and a fantastic e39, just the right setting I reckon! I also couldn't get away with a car that low. When I bought mine it already had a smashed underskirt where the air temp sensor is. Not a cheap bit of plastic to replace either...
