    Hey James. I was throwing it out there. R3V format is easier to navigate then a lot of the other BMW forums. Having a generic 5 series forum is a plus. I just was thinking because of the age, the E39 would be a good fit along with the E34.

    Real talk, a lot of guys submit E36 and E46 for sale in the Cars for Sale sub forum. And plenty of 5x120 wheels for swaps. I'm feeling it because I could use parts and tech talk. IJS. Your thoughts.

    Jeeps? Subaru? Toyota? If the E90 was close to 20 years old I would lobby for a spot for it to. But thanks for the consideration.

    I'm not, and I owned an E39 for nearly seven years until last February.

    bimmerfest.com has a metric ton of info available for them.

    I'm not 100% against it, although it does beg the question of the entire E36 and E46 line being comparable to the E39.. hell even the E38 comes into play.

    That being said just having a general 5 series forum (which is what we have) could keep it limited.

    Brussels has a low emission zone and my 1994 e34 520 (m50) won't be allowed to drive in Brussels next year! Every time I enter Brussels I would receive a 425 USD fine so I'm pretty much forced to buy a newer daily...I could change my daily route, to get on to the freeway every morning I enter the city of Brussels but well I'd probably forget within a week and rack up fines.

    Soo I'll probably pick up a 530 touring or a 540 which is way more expensive to run and repair but v8!

    Thatís what Iím rolling on. 528i touring. Love it

    Your finally ended up selling it? You had that car forever man! You always seemed partial to the 318's. Last I saw you you had a black 318is.

    Mtech was sold. I'm rocking a sterling 91 318is. My daily is an E39. The E39 forums are not imho as user friendly as R3V. Since they picked up the E34, I was thinking the E39 would be the next step.

    Hard to believe the e39 is the same age as the e30 was when we met :)

    Well, maybe not your late model e39, but a 95 is already 23 yrs old, and your vert would have been about 18 when we used to have the meets down here. My eS was 23 or so. How time flies, huh?

    All great points but thereís definitely a lot of e30 guys rocking e39 technology when it comes to swaps. Also, thereís a lot of e30 guys that daily e39ís.

    Wouldnít hurt to throw it up in the 5 series section. If thereís a demand for it, people will use it. If not, no harm done.
