Hi,

This topic has been discussed many many times on this forum and collectively thousands of times over all BMW forums given that many off the shelf BBK's fit on both E39 non M5 and M5's. Choose yourself a budget, look to see the off the shelf kits and/or look to see if you want to make a custom kit. Keep in mind sizing will vary and you need to check what size you want in relation to the size, width, offset of wheels you'll use along with any wheels you might have which have provision in their design to accomodate a BBK. Keep in mind that brake pads are an important consideration as well.

Cheers, Dennis!
