What is E39Source?

E39Source is a ground-breaking BMW Enthusiast community that creates instructional and entertainment-based videos/documents to promote the global preservation of the BMW E39 5 Series (1994-2003), specializing with the pinnacle model, the M5.

E39Source was founded in September of 2011, and was an inspiration due to the significant lack of high-quality online BMW E39 content.  Co-founder Ryan Schultz purchased his 2000 M5 in July of 2010, and has since been helping populate the informational community.


We encourage anyone with an interest to participate in E39Source, whether that be in written or video form.  Check out our Participation page that details how to become a part of E39Source!

We’re here for the long haul, and we’re always thrilled to meet fellow BMW enthusiasts who share our passion for these amazing vehicles. Send us an email, leave us a comment, make us a video.  See you on the road!
