vuriosity about the US version: the orange side lights on bumper are effectively lights or reflectors?

PS: my E60 is a very simple one, don't know if it worth to be published near your awesome cars

The bumper reflectors are just that, reflectors, they have no bulbs in them. They are pretty ugly though. I had mine tinted when they did my windows, made them very close to my body color.

I hope to get some style 128s on it in the next couple of months, but window tinting is definitely next!

Very nice congratulations! mine is space gray too. Here's a tip, take it to a high end detail shop and request the paint be buffer polished, it makes it look that much better.

Here's what mine looked after having that done:

I have lurked forever. I own a 06 530i with 153K. I bought it with 19K as a CPO. It was a lease return. I am not a big mod guy, but when it came time to replace some suspension parts, I did go with Bilstein B-8's. I also switched to ceramic brake pads for dust issues. Other than that, it is pretty much stock - cold weather package, premium package. I have replaced there radiator, expansion tank, and what seems like every gasket that leaks. However, to date (knock on wood) have not replaced water pump. I have given serious consideration to trading in for 2012 535 sport, but the trade in quoted to me by every dealer sucks. So screw it, I am gonna keep this one for at least another 2-3 years. It is a slightly unusual color:



I took this picture at about 148K...

^ LOVE that color!

I enjoy seeing BMWs in colors that aren't silver, gray, and black...not that I don't enjoy those colors, I just want to be different. Glad I found Oxford green.

Brydon. How do you like the Cream color interior! Always wondered about that interior color. Is it hard to maintain?

Dawg. Lot to be said about non turbo motors. Referring to longevity. Has anyone heard of the Turbos like 535 getting on up to or more than 200k miles. Turbos got extra power but?

I know you didn't ask me, but from previous experience, if you make it a point to take care of your interior its very do-able!

Here's the inside of my 'dove' E36 seats when they were 11 years old.
