    hi,

    it's kinda "tuning", i'm going for more comfort!

    just viewed a really tight '99 E39 528SE, but it's got an m pack on it with stiffened suspension which i'm not liking!

    sooo, i'm thinking of getting it anyway and simply replacing the springs and shocks with standard ones..(prob german patent parts)..i don't mind spending a few 100 quid on it, as it was a really tight car and quite cheap..


    wondering if possibly the anti roll bars are different as well?

    could actually leave those in place, but what do you think?

    what actually happens to a 5 series suspension when an m-pack is specified?


    cheers,
    bollos

    As far as Im aware M pack gives uprated springs, dampers and anti roll bar

    I dont know why you want to get rid of it though!! Try taking it out on some fast b roads before you decide you cant handle the harshness
