BMW E39 M Sport Bumper Converted to M5 Bumper

So you currently own a BMW E39 5 series with the sport bumper and can't help but think that the M5 E39 bumper looks much better an cleaner, in the same way that the E46 M3 bumper looks cleaner than the E46 sport bumper.

On your sport bumper you will notice you have a kind of slat/T-bar through the middle of the bumper mesh. Unfortunately this T bar is attached to the mesh, so you will need a new piece of plastic mesh. Normally you can pick these up on eBay, which is where we got ours from, delivered from Poland for around £35 and quality is perfect.

You need to remove the whole bumper which can be a little time consuming, however with a bit of patience and the right tools it is pretty straight forward.

Tools required

Torx 50 allen or wrench piece
philips screwdriver (stubby is best)
A helping hand to remove/refit the bumper (it's quite heavy but not impossible to do alone.

Here is our video and a few before and after shots. The video isn't really a DIY guide, more or a talkthrough on what we were doing. Enjoy.
