Smile new 5 series owner

How you guys doing? I just sold my 1999 3000gt and bought a 2001 bmw 525i with 59xxx on it. I love the car!!! The ride is amazing, specially on the highway. I just had couple questions. I bought the car at a vw dealer and purchases a extended warranty through some kind of insurance company they recommended. Anyways how reliable are these cars and something else, I love the front bumper of the m5. I was wondering if I could just buy that m5 bumper and if it would be a perfect fit or would I need to do some body work to the car.

Congrats on the car!
They are really fun and solid cars.

As for the front bumper, If you go OEM, it's going to cost you about $1100 USD.

My M5 bumper is on it's way to me, I'll snap some pics of it when it gets here

you can buy aftermarket M5 body kit for your car. It'll run you $300-400

Reliability on 525s is great. Mechanical is 9/10, but electrical is 7/10.
whatever ou do, don;t use the cupholders - the break extremely easily, and you gonna find it to be painful. If you like to drink coffee when you commute, buy a separate cupholder.

99% of aftermarket kits are made of fiberglass... No flexibility
