We encourage anyone with an interest to participate in E39Source, whether that be in written or filmed form.  If you own a BMW, and would like to contribute, we’re all ears!  You can sign up to post content here on the site through WordPress.  To post on E39Source’s YouTube channel, simply upload your video to your own channel, and send me a link.  With your permission, I will download that video, do any minor editing of dead space/transitions (not content, opinion,) and then upload to E39Source with credit to your channel.  Simply send me an email <ryan@techinform.us> or message on YouTube to notify me of your upload.

What should your first video include?    Make an introduction. Introduce yourself and your vehicle.  Provide some specs/options/details about your car (how long you’ve had it, milage, color, interior, engine, work you’ve already done, etc.)  Go with it, we have no required format here. Other videos you make could include, but are not limited to, DIYs, tutorials, updates on your vehicle’s status, maintenance you do, anything you’d like.  Just browse through the channel’s current uploads to see what we’ve done in the past, let them inspire you like they inspire me!

Enjoy.  We’re here for the long haul, and we’re 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!

  1. Hi there everyone, I have just purchased a 2000 e39 M5 .titansilver metallic with black on black interior. Anyway I love the car, however I am having a problem sorting out the lights specifically the license plate light on one side. I changed the bulb, didn’t fix. I switched them out still nothing. Anyone know if the wiring to those lights is complex? Thx Dave

    • The wiring for the lights goes through a rubber hose that is on the right side of the trunk when it is open, near the hinge. You may want to check that bundle of wires inside that hose to see if any of the wires are cracked or split.

  2. We own two BWMs…..Roxanne’s 2001 530i and my 2003 Z4 2.5. Love both cars, but now start needing misc replacements/upgrades. Gotta replace my gearshift knob in the roadster, so you video should point the way More later, and I’ll keep in touch.
    Thanks, Kevin
