Nice writeup.

Just did this on my E39 (2000 528iT 5M Sport) with M52TU motor. Original lasted 10 years and 180K miles.

If your E39 is leaking oil from the oil filter housing (6 bolts, attaches to side of block), removing this makes access to everything under the manifold much easier.

Oil filter housing on, alternator removed and PS pump dropped, airbox and MAF / rubber boots removed:
