    Its not perfect, but it still has a good reflection. Thanks.

    So far I have not done too much other than fix things that needed fixing. It had Meghan Racing Coilovers already installed when I bought it and they ride pretty good. I have replaced all of the coils and plugs, rear brakes and the passenger side window track/motor went out on me, but I was lucky enough to find a complete E39 door at the junk yard. The guides and chains were recently done along with a short shifter with all new bushings and things.....it shifts perfect. I also did a muffler and resonator delete from the cats back, it's like 85lbs worth of shit and it sounds amazing. 80mph in 6th gear is under 2500rpm and very quiet in the car until you step on it.

    E39's are weird like that, you have as much clearance up front as you do in the rear. Good luck rolling those rears, probably best to cut them.

    I haven't seen a good e39 thread for a while, I'll be following this build. I need to give some love to mine since I've neglected it over the last 2 years

    FYI, let me know if you need help vinyl wrapping that that wooden trim. I have gloss black on hand and an extra set of trim if you'd like it. Just pay for shipping and a six pack.

    Thank you. Progress is slow, but I enjoy driving it very much, so I am still happy with it for now.

    Thank you sir. I already rolled the rears when I did the brakes, but I'm sure i'll have to mess with it some more to get it where I want it. I appreciate the offer, I was actually going to do the trim as well, do you have crack free trim?





    This is not my first rodeo with the E39, here was my first 540 with 19' custom 3 piece DPE S20.

    Just lose the yellow tint on fog lights. It doesn't suit the car.

    It is still a great car and being well taken care of by the new owner. Even though I regret letting it go, I must admit that I like driving this car a little more.

    They are actually real yellow fogs from an E46 that a buddy had laying around. Mine were all cracked and faded so it was a cheap better looking option for me at the time. They have honestly grown on me after some time so I think I will leave them on for a while. I respect your opinion.

    Very nice! A good example of a simple and clean e39. What suspension are you on?
