Photobucket decided to implode on itself and I've always wanted to redo this thread so here we go :).

I thought the E39 section of trim types need some cleaning up to get rid of misconceptions and add in a few new pictures of trim that has yet been found outside of Realoem!

I've been working on refurbishing many E39 trim sets and along with that I have come across many interesting ones.

Some of the old threads have had mislabeled & double labeled sets, so I wanted let out all of what I've found. :)

Along with the thread I wanted to include Common name (if any), English name, and German name. Along with a link to RealOEM and short description.

If you spot any inconsistencies please let me know... I put a bit more emphasis on the more rare sets.

Here we go:

It's a high class living in the individual line, and pictures are sometimes VERY hard to come by, so some are missing or non-E39.

Burl walnut is the German translation of nussbaum. :)
