Hi mate did you do any alterations where the double din fits, or did it fit straight in?

Not much difficulty to fit

Sir,
It was not very difficult at all. I understand that 97-99 E39s differ slightly from later modelss in that the duct work within the opening is smaller. This being the case, I did not have to do any major modification. All I did is slightly move wiring to the side. and fit the 2 Din enclosure flush. It is not that difficult.
Good luck
