Were 2001 E39 540's available with an M-tec/M5 front bumper? The car is equipped with the Msport package, does this mean that it comes with the M bumper as well?

Any sugestions on where to get one?

I always thought that when the angel eyes made their apperance on the e39's so did the m5 style front bumper from the m-package

I saw one today at downtown fine cars on my way to school......it had the m-bumper, n it said 2001 on the front license plate.

Not sure if it was a 540 thou, I only saw the front, i know it wasn't an m5.
could have been a 530 i guess, i've seen those with that package too.

the car i looked at b4 i got the E60 was a '01 540i with the M sport pkg. i had the angel eyes m-tech kit all around and the m parells and m sport suspension. sick ass car, wish i had got it instead of the E60 now, what a ride! the way i found to tell if it were the m5 front bumper or a m sport one was that there was a plastic body colour piece that went across the middle opening, not sure if there was anything else. hope this helps man. and post pics of the car plz :D

They make the bumper for all years. Just make sure you get the one for your year model as pre 99 had an air cooled alternator and used ducting from the bumper to cool the alternator.
