Sorry Timmay, yes, I know the actual dimension are all important, the thing is I don't know what they are as they were on the car when I bought it...
I'll have a browse today and see if I can find out, wheels are far too filthy currently to read off them, there's another recent post about working it out I think.
I have just found this : https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39...h-warning.html
and sent him a PM to ask if he knows. We seem to run similar, although he is running larger size on the front, likely rear size on the front as it states 275 front and 285 rear, whereas I am 245 and 275 respectively.
I emailed a dealer in the UK to ask what my options are and I got :
BC don't differentiate between the M5 and normal E39 like they do for the E60 M5 and non M5 and not having much BMW knowledge I'm not sure if they'd fit or not, although I'd presume they would.
They only do one spring rate, and that is 6kg front and 5kg rear, although there is an option of the BR series or the RM series, which are an inverted coilover.
Unfortunately BC have pulled the VAT free promotion a week early due to overwhelming demand. Although I can offer a 12% discount off of rrp if paying via bank transfer, or 6% if paying via PayPal.

"I look at it like this. Owning an M5 is kind of like dating a slamming hot big-t...ed blonde, who is a pain in the *****, drains your cash, but screws like there's no tomorrow. Owning a Honda Civic or the like, is akin to dating a girl who is fat, ugly, smells a bit where she shouldn't, is a cheap date and doesn't screw at all (you don't mind). So yeah, I'll take the blonde."
