Didn't know the E39 540 had a doughnut. Is it shown on realoem.com? If you have the tire size, we can at least see if the rolling diameter is right.
I think an E60 545 doughnut would fit. Optional tire size is the same as E39 M5, so theoretically the doughnut should have the right tire diameter and fit if the hub is drilled out to fit the E39 hub bore. Not sure if it would clear calipers however. Just haven't had time to delve further into that one yet.
