    Yeah, sounds like a bad deal. I'll do you a favor and trade you my 2001iL straight across. I know it's a big sacrifice on my part, but it's the least I could do.....


    LOL, good score!! So isn't there levels to these cars? Or do they all get the full package? I thought I'd seen a few that just had a tune and intake. Or are those just cars that got pieces from decreased ones?

    It's again this time of the year, when 7er goes up on coilovers 4cm and 16" goes under
    After inspection goes back down again with 19"

    Yes, in order to have the DINAN badge you need 10 points or more of mods. DINAN sets the points scale (I'm guessing on money spent). This car is missing the CAI at this time, although I have one located from a close friend and forum member out here in Cali. Honestly, the CAI only ads about 3 hp and maybe sounds a little better, but no real advantage. Both of us wonder if its worth putting back on, but its a simple mod, so I'll get'r done.

    CAI - 3 points
    M60 intake - 1 point
    Software for ECU and EGS - 3 points
    Exhaust - 3 points

    That's what is on this car

    Currently the e39 has a jammed sunroof, although I was able to force it closed. I spent 3 hours in 103F heat at the local JY pulling an entire sunroof cartridge from another e39. Need to get going on finding another engine for the iL also. Never a dull moment.

    Yeap.. well I could go with 19" rims, but I still have to raise the car, because maximum drop I could do is -51mm by law, my drop is almost -80mm.
    Rims I take off because, I don't want anyone to scratch them..

    Did you do e55's or the morimoto Minis? I have some E55 projectors but I'm thinking of going mori's.

    Cool, I have two sets of lights so I might do the e55 set up in one and the mori's in the other just to compare lmao. You like the output of the 55's?

    Since a couple of Weeks now my Radio Screen got weirdly dark, the clock is barely visible, Same as the Radio, etc..
    The weird Thing is, when i click the clock button while the Car is off, it Lights sometimes completely normal Up Just Like it used to be but after a second it darkens itself again.
    What reason could there be? Is somewhere a Wire loose? Or is it Just dying?...

    Heres a Picture

    Dinan has a list of parts and points for each upgrade.

    You can see what's listed for mine and I have a badge. Dinan had some info on my car and the BMW dealer had the rest.

    If you have the TB and intake you get stage 5 software to go with it.
