We stowed our riot torches long enough to sample the '04 model, due to arrive here in October. Its broad-shouldered contours come largely from the 7, with the pointed-oval twin-kidney grille most influenced by the Z4. Driving is paramount - the steering wheel adjusts for both reach and tilt, and has auxiliary controls for cruise control and audio systems. I need to use spacers to fit them onto the front of the car as they're catching the suspension. Me and the guys at the Florence Academy for Priceless Sculpture and Bocci Ball have been talking and, well, Michelangelo's David over there is looking a little, you know, predictable. It does seem to be related to the sport suspension design which goes all out for handling and the tires are sacrificial elements.
The shift lever placement is near-perfect. This problem is well-documented in various forums - including this one. They showed serious issues at 3K. Time to be fair and balanced. I've never been less satisfied with a purchase. Wheelbase has stretched to 113.
Hi John, I am considering buying some 16' E39 rims - 74. I know M3-wheels which fitted a e39 when the center bore was made larger and spacers was fitted. As always, a sport suspension package is offered, and my test car was so equipped. A 5 Series touring wagon will arrive around summer 2004, with an all-new M5 supersedan see accompanying story roaring Stateside about six months after that. The M5 rims are a style 166 are a staggered set front is 8. In one ten-mile section of freeway, at 65 to 70 mph, it maintained 39 mpg.
Also keep in mind that the 5-series has a offset of around 22-25 mm so you will need to use some spacers. That power is transmitted to the rear wheels by a six-speed transmission, with manual standard and an automatic available. Hi, Johanna,What your current tire size? Leatherette is standard for the 525 and 530, with leather optional. Like the exterior, the all-aluminum suspension is inspired by the 7 Series. I plan to replace these with another set of Goodyears just like them when the time comes. Still, there's been some complexification of our beloved 5 Series that gives us pause. The 530i's dual overhead cam, 24-valve 3.
Going to buy an F10 535i on Friday. Unfortunately, the Michelin Pilot Sports are already cooked at 8K. Don't worry, they're large, healthy Bavarian horses. The old M5 rims are 9x18 and 10x18 respectively. I can help you confirm it. Our praise will likely only grow with the arrival of an optional six-speed sequential manual gearbox, due in early 2004. They all complain about the wear pattern with the 525 or 530 tires.
I want the wheels look as stance as possible. But we aren't going to put away our angry-mob torches yet, either. It's also slightly larger in every dimension, but its styling actually de-emphasizes its size. The new 5-Series takes advantage of new technologies and construction techniques to make it the best yet. Yes,if the new wheel cb is bigger than your current,You need to use ring to compensate it. Sharply delineated lines separate its various parts. The only solution is to have a good tire shop re-set the front end factory settings to a more neutral alignment.
Any input would be appreciated! One month after the 530i 3. These tires have very little horizontal elements in the tread design which I hope will minimize the cupping you and I experienced. So maybe you understand how the designers and engineers at probably feel about now. The four-door 530i that awaited us is merely the first in a string of new 5 Series variants headed our way. Trunk space is also improved, especially when the spare is deleted in favor of new optional run-flat tires. Bayerische Motern Werke - Bavarian Motor Works - built aircraft engines long before it made complete cars, and the inline six-cylinder has been a specialty since the late 1920s.
The 525i and 530i have inline six-cylinder engines; the 545i has a V8. Despite the firm suspension calibration and the stiff sidewalls of the ultra-low profile run-flat tires the ride is remarkably comfortable - and cornering ability is first-rate. Leatherette upholstery is standard; real leather is optional. There is a good Wheel and Tire forum on Roadfly where this issue comes up frequently. Also, you would have to fit some very very thin hub centric rings as the 5-series e39 has 74,1 mm in center bore while the 3-series e46 has 72,6 mm. Unlike the 7-Series, the trunk of the 5-Series does not appear to be a separate mass, but is integrated into the overall design.
