I have owned both an E39 528i and an E39 540i. I found the 528i to be a better handling car, it is lighter, better balanced and more nimble. I did a lot of spirited driving with my 528i and got a...

vgdti, it has been nearly a year since your last post on this rough idle topic. I have a 540i with very much the same rough idle during warm up. From your post on 2/26/16 it appears your problem...

I had the same problem as several of you, the roof would hit the wind deflector when closing and stop. After reading this thread, I lubed the tracks and all the pivot points for the wind deflector. ...

Have you pulled your plugs and checked to see if there is oil in the cavities? Oil around the spark plugs from a leaky valve cover gasket can sometime cause a misfire or stumble. Just a thougt and...

Ah ha! I think that may explain my problem. I put on new pads and new sensors and the lining indicator light is now on....it wasn't before. When I installed the pads I noticed the metal backing...

I have no experience with Koni's so I can't really say. Do some searching on the forum and read around to get a feel for people's comments and opinions on various shocks. Probably not many on this...

That's a beauty, you did good. Just a heads up on the Bilsteins. They are great shocks, but they are harsh. If you plan to do a lot of track, autocross or spirited driving, then Bilsteins are...

Unless you are a hard core M car guy, I would go with the 550 and the Dinan upgrade.

If you're lucky, it's just a dead battery. You can get an aftermarket battery for a reasonable price. But, you should check the voltage while it's running to verify it's charging properly. I was...

That looks like a regular 540iA sport, not an M-sport. I'm not positive on this, but I thought the M-sport was only available in 2003 and it had 18" M Parallel wheels, and front and rear bumpers...

The 528i is a great car, but I wouldn't do it. If you want more hp why not just get a 540i or an M5. E39 prices are very reasonable.

I have the Bilstein sport shocks with the factory sport springs. Great handling, but IMO Bilsteins are too harsh for a daily driver. I regret buying them.

540i Steering Issue
