    Hi guys

    I've just upgrade my ride from e34 520i [​IMG][​IMG]to 2003 siena red e39 525i. These pics are on the first day of ownership at the car dealer.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]The colour is pure coincidence. No intention to get the same colour.

    The car was ok except the body n paintwork need a touch up..

    Put on a new rims. 18' Racing dynamics RD2 non staggered. The rims were retrieved from my previous udm e34. (Just sell the car not the rims)

    I feel the car stand taller than other standard e39. The gap at the rear arch/fender is too much. Dont know what is wrong. Maybe it just my eyes..

    Diy removing rear shelf mechanic wont take much time changing suspension. Plus sent the shelf for rewrap and fixing non working rear blind.

    While at the workshop changed engine oil, ATF, fuel filter n spark plugs..

    Old suspension..

    With new suspensions the ride quality met my satisfaction. And the car lowered nicely but im not 100% satisfied. But still can live with that for now.

    After removing rear blind found out that the plastic thing joining blind's arm and sheet was broken. Went to spare parts shop, they sell whole set with motor, arms, casing, etc. So did a chop shop. I didnt get the whole set bcoz my set is fine except those tiny things are broken.

    So I have to fabricate from aluminium curtain railing holder. After a lot and a lot of cutting, grinding, filing and sanding my blind works. Pheww..

    And rewrap the rear shelf with leather-like material, so it wont trap dust. But dont know wether it can stand heat.

    Had to trim rear diffuser to accomodate remus twinpipe. The cut is rough, need to do fine finishing.

    No.. the rims come with 76mm.. I had to put hubcentric ring to fit it nicely. 76mm dont know what car use it. E39 74.1mm is already big enough compare to other cars.

    Bro antiquer,
    Nice car you have, bro... IMHO, rear diffuser looks good in red but better in black. If I wanna my rear diffuser also in black, how to do it (w/o spray)? Ada plastic dip jugak ke utk E60 M Sport?

    Rgds.
