Now im really confused... I thought those were the lower part of the fender liner that attack to the bottom of the engine cover and the bumper... I already have those.. are you 100% sure those are the pork chops?

Pork Chops are definitely the lower fender liners that attach to the bumper and undertray. Did you get the M-Tech "pork chops"? They are different from the standard E39 ones...

That's old pics, haven't got any chance to took proper pictures of her ... The PO use the original springs but the Eibach and Bilstein are on their way (soon i hope... ..)

Your pics are tiny. I can barely see them on my 42" tv lol

Oh and BTW FYI the 2001+ is a "facelifted" 5er that comes standard with the LED tails called CELIS, and the halos/angel eyes were standard too.

Also, those are M-Parallel wheels...not M5 wheels.
