    I recently got a BMW e39 525i. I was wondering if it is worth modifying, or just leave it the way it is? I don't care as much as high performance goes, because I know it's slow, but I would love to modify the cosmetics with some wheels and suspension. Just trying to get some advice.

    I am gearing up to have the front bumper, hood and fenders repainted on my 5 series E39 and the labor involved in sanding and prepping the front bumper cover justifies maybe replacing the front bumper cover instead..??

    Hi. I have 03 525i and want to convert my halogen headlight to LED. I did some research on it and saw a few posts saying E39's headlight cannot convert to LED (maybe) because LED bulbs usually have fat heatsink and fan assembly right behind the bulb and it doesn't fit well on the H7-to-BMW...

    I have 03 525i sedan and recently the right tail light failed due to the melting ground pin of the wire connector. Since both connectors of the wire harness and tail light assembly melted, I ended up buying new tail light assembly and wire harness from, which costed about $160 USD. It...

    Hi everyone - It's very cold here in Chicago and on my way home from the airport the Transmission Fail Safe came on in my 2003 E39. The car was perfect up until 5 miles away from home. It went into limp mode and I was able to get it pulled to the side of the highway. When I came to a stop i...

    I have two questions as follows: 1.) It has 17" wheels, can I replace with 18" and or possible 19" wheels"? If so do you have any tire / rim manufacturer suitable for these BMW's as well as a wheel manufacturer suitable? My second question is this, I have seen several components online for M...
