Chronicles of my 540i.

Will be updating this as I update my car.

I just needed a place to put my car's progress. Mahalo for looking.

In the Beginning...




Tinted




+ clear tails and clear sidemarkers



+ clear xenons and angels headlights




+ magnaflow muffler and shark fin antenna

For the love of god man, burn the wheels in a fire! I've got one of those as a spare in my trunk... its what my car came with. Yuck :( Otherwise, looks clean and I love blue cars.

looks good, shark fin has to go. what % tint is it? ceramic?
Thanks! ...but the fin looks good with the nostrils (grills). If the E39 was an animal it would definitely be a shark.

Tinted 35% all around 'cept for windshield for legality.

I know I haven't updated for the longest time but here are some new additions since last time:

added M5 steering wheel and airbag



M5 mirrors and Go Pro HD Hero



megan coilovers e39 application





installing passenger side



old oem shocks/strut



front side will be lowered a little bit more. rear will stay the same. plenty more room to go lower if need be.




m5 trunk lip with exotics tuning rear diffuser

thanks for the compliments fellas :)

Did you install the megan coilovers yourself and how do they ride? Are those OEM mirrors? Looking Good
yes, with a lot of help with a friend. the rears was a pain in the ass to install though since we had to remove half the interior to get access to it :mad: but it was fun and the ride is comfortable yet corners much better with no body roll. the m5 mirrors i got from umnitza, great guys to deal with.

Way to rep the non sports- Chrome trim and all- I like it.

^^the wheels are an improvement though.
:D
