If your car has more than 90-100K miles (I assume so), then I suggest doing a
COMPLETE COOLING SYSTEM OVERHAUL for a peace of your mind.

I wrote some tips and tricks in case you need them:
COOLING SYSTEM OVERHAUL:
ENTIRE COOLING SYSTEM REPLACEMENT Tips and Tricks (Very Long, Enjoy!)

*** ALSO.....MANUAL TRANS AND REAR DIFF OIL CHANGE:
REAR Diff & MANUAL Trans Fluid Change: Tips and Tricks

Enjoy, The E39 is probably the best BMW ever built.

1. M5 rear sway bar (about $110 from your dealer if they're any good at all)
2. Infinity 1011T tweeters (E-Z direct replacement for your existing tweeters behind your rearview mirrors, and will improve your treble response 500%)
3. OBD-II scanner or Peake Research tool (whichever fits a 2000 528) so you can read your own engine trouble codes and reset your own maintenance minder.
4. Two-volume Bentley Service manual (about $110 from Amazon)
5. Internet shortcuts to: autohausAZ.com, alloemautoparts.com, and getcoolparts.com.
6. Trunk cargo net (can't live without it!)
7. Axxis Deluxe Plus brake pads to cut down on brake dust on your wheels.

OK, I'll stop there...

LOS is an unknown quantity at this point
Don't forget the muffler! It makes a big difference.
I have the tri-flo from bavauto.com and happy with the results. My car has the V8. I'm not sure how it will sound on smaller engines though.
