In Reply to: Re: Same for 528 & 540 posted by Jim Cash on January 25, 2000 at 21:58:38:

: : I've searched the archives and saw previous messages on replacing the armrest with one that flips up for storage. I called Pacific BMW and they said the 51-16-6-196-936 is specified for the 528. Has anyone already tried this in a 540? I want to make sure it fits fine in either.

: : The person I spoke to mentioned a 51-16-8-190-199 that was for the 540 which was leather but did not flip up. Has anyone seen this part?

: : Thanks in advance

: Only difference is that the 528 & 540's have different materials as standard and that is what is listed.

: But you an get the upper armrest part in anycolour or material that BMW makes for the E39 - they will all fit on the new lift up/sliding panel.

: You dealer can look up the correct part number to match your existing colour/material.

: Cheers

: Jim Cash
