  1. Any drawbacks to going with an aftermarket head unit (Pioneer, Kenwood, etc) with everything else untouched?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    The M Audio subs have two 6 ohm voice coils each, so wiring them in series and parallel will result in a 6 ohm load to your amp
  2. WTB- E39 M5 Transmission

    Australian Forum
    Have you seen eBay listing 181996120931? It says it's from an E46 M3 but lists compatibility with the E39 M5. No idea if that's true...

  5. Velvet Blue Individual complete respray

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Regarding paint, the person who did my full respray was very surprised to find that LMB was comprised of a base coat of dark blue, an upper coat of lighter blue with metallic fleck then the clear coat. UK rust spots are covered comprehensively in the forums if you search. Regarding parts to...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I love Focal speakers, have used them since 1995 and have 826W SE floorstanders at home. I have these in my doors RW 165/1 L0017-04S With the 12Velectronics baffles BMW E39 Front Speaker Mounts - 12v Electronics I mention this because the Seas have a mounting depth of 76mm and the PS 165FX is...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I owned a MY99 V5 STi bought new for 7 years. The E39 chassis is a lot stiffer :)
  8. The € exchange rate (need OEM brake discs) and ordering cheaper parts

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    FYI: ATE front discs from £200 each here http://www.mister-auto.co.uk/en/brake-discs/bmw-5-e39-m5-400hp_v10300_g900007.html I bought a pair before I left the UK and they are OE to my eyes; September 2012 and they only cost me £181.33 wish I had bought spares :)
  9. Parrot Asteroid RNB6 - Shallow Depth/Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I don't have factory bluetooth. However if its audio is currently routed through your BM54 (or equivalent radio module) as your navigation audio will need to be, then it should still work as the MS-8 is downstream of that. You also don't have to get pre outs fitted if you're planning on a MS-8...
  10. Parrot Asteroid RNB6 - Shallow Depth/Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I replaced the M Audio DSP amp with a MS-8 and cannot sing its praises highly enough :) To answer your question: Yes as the MS-8 includes 8 channels of amplification; it's the one box solution to replace the DSP amp whether or not you also change the head unit. A possible upgrade from there...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I'll sure be keeping an eye on this Dennis :)
  12. Anyone know what refills to get when replacing blades on the aero Goodrain wipers?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I made the right hand Goodrain wiper 50mm longer for my RHD car by using parts from a generic flat wiper blade. The only Goodrain parts still on that wiper are the central mount and clip. I had to put 2 shallow notches into the long metal pieces from the generic blade to marry up with the...
  13. Aftermarket REAR speaker options?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    If you're using a MS-8, any coaxial will do. The treble will be rolled off a lot by the tune in order to ensure the soundstage stays forward and you'll want to set the rear high pass around 100Hz. I used the JBL GT6-5 Which front components are you going for?
  14. Timing guide parts list

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    An accident waiting to happen!
  15. Timing guide parts list

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    After seeing other posts on here, and three of the five the plastic locating tabs from this part being noticed when my sump was off, I beg to differ
  16. Anyone tried getting tyres from Tire rack in the US

    Australian Forum
    After gagging at the price of tyres back in Australia, I was wondering what to do as I'd read on a few forums that Tire Rack could no longer ship Michelin's outside the US. I was probably going to use a sea container freight forwarder but fortunately didn't need to :) $1340 AUD landed, no GST...
  17. Best way to bypass DSP to get sound for Avin Avant 2?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Regarding the number of amplifier channels and type of crossover you'll be using :) Audio crossover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia If you have 4 separate channels of amplification available for your front speakers, you can use active crossovers to split high and low frequencies between...
  18. Best way to bypass DSP to get sound for Avin Avant 2?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Are you planning on running the front speakers active or passive? These seem like great value for a 5 1/4" component.
  19. Replacing speakers w/ M Audio. Is BSW the only option?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Definitely try that. The M Audio speakers sounded pretty amazing once I had them appropriately connected and configured in the MS-8.
  20. Evolve Alpha-N tune extra options... Yea or nay?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Their tune is great. The much improved steering weight is the worth the price of entry all by itself :)
