    Not as a straight swap, no.

    Which 5 series?

    Neither will be a straight fit but depending on which 5 you have in mind will determine the level of work required to make it.

    E39 headlights don't fit a 3 series either but my mate had them fitted to his

    you'll need to do a lot of work to get the bonnet to fit. hinges will have to be moved, its too swide, too long, different slope on it etc etc
