I'd go with the BMW mats; they're available from Pacific BMW(and others) for $59+shipping front AND rear:http://pacificbmw.com/catalog/access/detail.asp?pid=172&model- =E39 .
The Weathertechs are well made-I'm quite pleased with the full set in my TJ-but I simply can't see buying anything but the BMW set when the price is so reasonable. The fit will be perfect with NO trimming.

Are you a BMWCCA member? Did you get your first Roundel magazine yet? They have plenty of ads for this kinda stuff. Many give BMWCCA members discounts (even dealerships on BMW merchandise.)
#69 of 116 getting windows tinted
Sep 18, 2003 (8:36 am)
I want to get the rear windows tinted on my new 525i.
Any good vendor recommendations? I live in the East bay in the SF bay area. I was told to call Rocky mountain tinting in Livermore.
Does tinitng affect the rear defrost or radio reception?
#70 of 116 Adding a CD changer to a 540i

I just bought a 1999 540i and would like to add a factory CD changer in the trunk. What's involved and who has the best prices for the BMW CD changers?

dds540... You should join BMW CCA just to get the subscription to Roundel magazine. You should also subscribe to Bimmer magazine. Both have a ton of ads from reputable suppliers.
Passport BMW (888-344-4383) advertizes "6-Disc Cd Changers (1996 and newer)" for $379.00, plus shipping.
Pacific BMW (800-909-PARTS) sells same for $392.99, advertizing "CD & Install Kits ship Free".
Bavarian Autosport also a great source for tons of aftermarket parts and accessories.

Does anyone know if the Dinan cold air intake and chip for the 03 530i will fit the 04 530i since the engine is a carryover but the 6 speed transmissions are not?

According to BMW NA November BMW 5 Series (E60) productions will have a NAV retrofit prewire system... once the NAV is available it can be purchased and installed by dealer. Can anyone confirm this?
That sucks that I'm going to get my car Nov. 12th but won't have that option since it was made before Nov.
#75 of 116 Cd changer install
Oct 21, 2003 (8:39 pm)
I just installed a BMW cd changer in my 2003 540 3 days ago. It is so easy that I did it on my lunch break. I bought mine from eurobuyer.com for 349(free shipping). The bracket cost me an extra 20. Some Alpine model will work but an adapter is needed. Some people are saying that the adapter degrades the sound, so I went with the oem changer which is also built by alpine.

Anyone using the bluetooth phone option? Have you tried to use it with non-bluetooth phones and the headset option from Jabra or Plantronics? Do
