In north america, it was 89 to 96 for E34 and 97 to I think 2004 for E39.

E34 1989 models consisted of:

525i and 535i

E34 did their facelift in 94 to wide grill and the models changed to:

525i, 530i and 540i.

E39 started out in 97 with:

528i and 540i

they did their facelift in 2001 and changed their models to:

525i, 530i, 540i.


all this information was off the top of my head, I'm pretty sure its at least 95% correct.

sort of the wrong thread to ask, don't you think? perhaps you should start a thread and title it "E39 exhaust"

put a Maxbimmer sticker on your car, 10hp at the wheels for sure :D

as for the original question E39's ran from 97-03 in NA, 98 is when they first introduce Shadowline Trim, 99 is when they introduced Vanos in the 540's & also Steptronic.

it really depends on your setup, the sound varies a lot, some have just installed a muffler with not much sound change, if you have a chance to hear my car it's totally different & many on this board would say the same, I have replaced cat-back, which includes a smaller resonator, larger piping, Brullen muffler with larger diameter cats as well, it sounds very mean & at WOT it sounds like a beast
