    you will need new m sport fog lights

    air ducts and possibly front part of the arch liners.

    Sorry sestorious, normally there's help a lot quicker but the forum has been busy of late, especially for us moderators who would normally have flagged this up by now for you to get more assistance. There's not too many E60 owners on here either which probably doesn't help!

    I'd imagine that 530-i is probably right, with needing different fog lights I think it's the same on the E46 3-series. Not sure what else, hopefully someone can come along soon.
    www.mstyle.co.uk sell M-Sport bumpers, so maybe you could give them a ring and ask them?

    mounting brackets are the same...

    your bumper is actually only attached with plastic rivets to the bumper enforcement bar.

    usually the same of the bumpers varies so on the e39 the arch liners are different.

    id look on realoem for m sport arch liners and then for se and check if the part numbers are the same
