Had this delivered a little over a week ago. Been really happy with it so far. Needs a little bit of an altitude adjustment, some bigger wheels, and dechroming.

Re: Show off your E39 post pics!!!

Got my AntiRoll bar kit fully installed! A friend of mine has a lift and was gracious enough to let me use it. We ended up having to drop the subframe (pulled the four rear bolts completely out and loosened the front two half way) in order to have enough room to get the old bar out and the new one in.

Let me just say, if you're thinking about doing this mod, it is totally worth it. The car is almost completely flat around corners.

I don't understand you. if you have 18in style 65s why would you spend more money to get 18in M pars... IMO the style 65s looked better on it. now if you had 19in M pars that would be worth dropping the style 65s.
