Couple e39 530i shots.

Went out with some e90 and e92 guys and decided to get some pics of the e39.

Nice looking E39 aw, that stance looks good with those wheels.

I have the M panels front and back on mine but can't help but love the front end on yours too.

As you say E39...timeless

Hi,

aw335i - the car is looking excellent and proves that even with standard or SE bumpers (SE is the trim level given to non Sport E39's) these cars can look absolutley fantastic! The location backdrop of LV looks very familiar to me as I'm often there for SEMA and CES, I always wish I could bring my own car across and drive around LV !

glacierstate - finding genuine BBS LM's for E39 fitment in 19 inch is very very hard as they so extremely rare. If you are looking for genuine items, then I do know a set for sale. If you are looking for the cheapy replica's, then there's hundreds of places to get them from and can be found very very easily indeed !

Cheers, Dennis!

Thanks a lot. My first plan was to get the M front and rear but I think i will add a lip if I get the mod bug again. I am working on a weekend ride so I am trying to keep this simple since it was supposed to stay stock..haha

Thanks much.. Mine are Vortex tuning LM style. You can get this same style from Varrastoen as well. You can also get the real deal, but be ready to pay 5k for just the wheels. These wheels are from my previous ride e92 335i so I had to get the hub bore adapters to make them fit. They were sitting around in my garage so I figured I would put them to use.. haha

Thanks Dennis. It surely is LV. I love this place. It does help that the BMW scene is very active as well. Maybe we can meet up one of these years at SEMA or CES. Hopefully I will have my next ride actually in the show.. .. Dreams...

Hi

I do know of a few guys in LV who are actively involved in the BMW scene there, so when I'm next over I will definitely be in touch - for now, hoping it's in late October for SEMA. No doubt the MFest guys will roll in again this year and most likely where I'll spend quite some time. I'll probably drop a line to you and some of the other LV local guys I know to see if it'll be possible to meet up at some point

Cheers, Dennis!
