Sorry to hear that. Dibs on the wood trim if you part it out? I was looking forward to the revival.

Thanks for your words of encouragement Fortunate Son! I'm going to take my time and continue with the project, and see what happens. There may be a revival just yet! In the meantime, I bought another 98 540i, missed driving an E39 too much too wait!

That's a good looking car! I like those wheels too. Keep me informed on your progress. You can never have too many E39's. Do you mind me asking how much you spent? I may be in the market as well.
