New Addition to the Garage - E39 Touring

Picked this up in California a couple of weeks ago. New springs and shocks on the way to get it a bit lower. Its an 02, 58K, sport pacakge, premium pacakge, and cold weather package, and most importantly a manual.

Was debating on a touring before going with the E90. Now looking at how nice yours is, i'm starting to have regrets! Congratulations!

The 01-03 6 cylinder cars didn't get the shadowline. kinda weird really. Its on the list of things to add. I'm also contemplating adding black rub stips. The body color ones just seem like too much silver. The later E39s came with style 81 17" rims instead of the style 5s, and more importantly, came with the later M wheel.

Here's the interior. Also getting rid of the wod trim in favor of aluminum.

Cheers,

Ian

Wow, that white E36 M3 is gorgeous! Never really liked white BMWs pre-E46 era but that one looks mint.
