    So I purchased wheels off someone that was recommended by a user on this forum, there was about 6 people that contacted me with wheels for sale and I'm pretty sure every one was a scam. Is that what this forum is all about? I came from a Kia forum where everyone was super helpful and I was...

    A few months ago I traded in my leased 435xi for a new x3. The 435xi had a few months remaining on the lease, but when I was emailing about the new car’s financing with the dealership, they said they would pay off the remainder of the lease if I bought a new car. I thought everything was fine...

    Hello all, I purchased a full set of Brembo pads and rotors and would like to know if the rotors are fake or authentic. - I did some research and the biggest flag is both front rotors have different thicknesses on the outside (6mm) and inside (8mm). The rears are uniform each but not to each...

    My wife's 2004 X5 E53's suspension went bad about two weeks ago. It was the front driver's side that was down. My brother is a mechanic and he took a look at it and told me that I needed the air strut assembely replaced. So in need of this part fast I ordered from IMC parts. I ordered a rebuilt...

    How can we best handle those "baiting" threads nym shifters are just pulling our leg? How can we best handle those "baiting" threads where nym shifters are just pulling our leg? With our E39s now no longer costing $30K to $50K, the level of the newcomers inevitably changes. That's not a bad...

    Guys, I just wanted to warn you guys from this fellow who apparently likes to rip off people. I recently bought a E39 540i with the M package sport rims. Because I wanted to have different rims I decided to sell them on Ebay. I listed them as "local pickup only" and sold them quickly to this...

    It made local news here in Indy tonight. Not a big suprise but this name has been reported worldwide now. If you are on craigslist and come across the name Trevino, flag his pos ass. Just thought I would chime in. Perhaps it would be a good idea to make a list of known scammer names and...

    So i bought a certified 07 750Li from a dealer last week and when i was showing it to one of my friends today they had a feeling that the bumper was repainted.

  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So I'm trying to sell my '99 E39. I have loved the car, but it is time to part with it. We were going to trade it in, and on the way to the dealer I stopped off to get it washed. Radiator cracked at the entrance to the carwash. Car wash was attached to a quick lube, and one of the guys comes...
