That bumper in the pic is on the 2001 models and newer.
And Yes, it will fit on your car.
2000 models and older do not have a lip and looks rather lame.
That's why I added on a ACSchnitzer lip spoiler on mine, like the one winters posted in the pic.

Wow your car looks hot! What year is your car? My 528i is also black, and I would like to get that same lip. Where did you purchase that, and how much? Also, are your headlights stock w/angel eyes installed? Can you post more pics of your head lights with all the lights on? Last, are your grills the wide ones? Thanks!

Thanks BeemerMan! Mine is a year 2000 model.

The front lip-spoiler is a ACSchitzer replica. It was discussed with "winters97E39" not too long ago: HERE if you wanna check it out (scroll down the page). I have one exact same lip-spoiler for sale.

My lights are stock Xenons, and the rings are LEDs, from ebay. They don't light up well with the Xenons on, but they're cheap upgrades. I wouldn't recommend them.

Yes, those are wide M5 grilles.

Where do you recommend I purchase those LED angel eyes? And is it hard to install? For now i'm thinking of buying just the clear smoked lens cover to replace my ugly orange ones, and installing those LED angel eyes. For that Front Lip, how much are you willing to sell to me shipped to 92626? Let me know, very interested! THanks!

Anyone here will tell you. LED angel eyes suck.

However, if you wan't angel eyes. Go with umnitza, (www.umnitza.com)

Thier products are great, thier angel eyes are bright, and they look great. I bought a set for my e34, and they were the absolute favorite part of my car. They were bright enough to be seen in daylight, and the install, (although somewhat more involved on my car), was fairly simple, on your e39, the install will be MUCH easier than mine.

Heres pictures of mine right after the install, and the thread that followed

Like D3ity said, I wouldn't recommend the LED angel lights. But if you really want them, they now have a better version which is brighter, looks kinda like a fluorescent ring. You can look them up on ebay, they're selling for about $80. Installation is simple.

As for the lip-spoiler, did you read the comments on the thread link that I posted in my reply? I'm selling it for $200, but I mentioned that packing the fiberglass lip-spoiler and making sure it doesn't get damaged in shipping is a challenge. It is not polyurethane like your bumper cover, it's fiberglass and it will crack if twisted or bumped into. If you still want it, let me know, I'll find a way to package it and charge you for shipping & handling.

OR...you could get the original ACS lip-spoiler from bavarian auto, I think it's polyurethane, but it's well over $600...before shipping.
