Hello Ian & 5er folks,

Show tailpipes.

Besides RDsports, the following has rear spoilers that has a cut-out that shows the tailpipes.

Hamann
AC Schnitzer
Hartge
Breyton
MKmotorsport

There are other ones, but I have not heard of people that tried them; therefore, no comments.

Enclosed is a picture of mine E39 on Hamann's rear, the showdow is blocking the chrome tailpipe;yet you can see the rear spoiler cutout.


: I just picked up my 98 540i 6sp and have ordered an aerokit from BMW. (What a great purchase!!) I wanted to sport the thing up a little bit and thought the aerokit from BMW was very subtle and it would match the 5 spoke rims. So I have that ordered. I am slightly annoyed that the 540 aero kit as well as the 540 does not show the tailpipes. The tailpipe is bent down hidden behind the skirts. I have seen the rear spoiler and sport exhaust from RDSPORT that remedies BMW's oversight. Anyone familiar with the RDSPORT kit. Any opther kits that show tailpipes? Any recomendations? Can you mix and match the BMW front spoiler and side skirts with the RDsport rear apron with sport exhaust.(don't see why not?)

: Anyone put different fog lights in the 540i? What did you go with? The factory ones are nice yet not quite bright enough.

: Thanks,
: ian
