    Oh no! Que the 15 page argument of why oil isn’t what it says it is and why cheap/premium/middle (delete as needed) is the best for your car at temps. That are never experienced in the uk..... but that is a good price so might go and get some

    Hi just bought a 63 plate 530D M Sport, first BMW, car only has 33500 miles on it and I have done around 300 miles in the last 3 weeks. I feel like I have an invisibility cloak as at least 4 people have pulled out in front of me, the breaks are good, are there any recommendations for a Dashcam as I feel I may need one quite soon. I want to keep it out of site of me the driver but want HD recording and permanent power on any thoughts? thanks

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    All eight have already been replaced since that photo, it's a great spec (GF13728) M sports suspension and bits all factory fitted, sitting on paralles, electric roller blind, nav, v50 phone etc. It had a scratch on every panel, so will be going in to the body shop for a full respray next week along with genuine sport bumpers and mirrors. Only other photo I have is after I replaced the adjusters and lenses on the headlights + fitted the latest Osram D2S Xenarc Lasers (can't believe the difference)

    525d 3.0 engine noise

    Thanks everyone. Yes i do believe this is a timing chain on its way out. On cold start the sound is very prominent now and sound same as above videos. Has anyone had the timing chain on N57 block changed, and if so what did this cost? have it booked in next week at a BMW specialist close to me and just wondering what it'll roughly cost to get done.

    Wanted E39 Sport Touring

    They never made a 535i sport touring. Only a 520,525,530 and 540i were available as petrol sport tourings as well as the 525d and 530d.

    Haven't noticed any issues. I think I read some people get interference from LED headlight bulbs (in general), not specific to these units. Might be a starting point for you. I have LED's for reference. Keliuss

    Boiler replacement cost

    We've gt a glow worn boiler, it's aight and does the job but if i was replacing then would go Worcester Bosch. Seems they have the most reasonable component parts and most engineers can work on them. Some of the cheaper brands dont have the part availability long term and would become beyond economical repair quite quickly

    Wanted E39 Sport Touring

    hi as title says, E39 sport touring wanted not afraid of any work needed as its gonna be a project.hoping to find either 535 or 540i. sorry no diesels,cant stand em just my opinion.
  19. I agree the grills looks massive, BMW have lost their way with the grills I think. They use to be a sign of a decent motor but now they are massive and more functional and take too much of the front of the car. I cant wait for the day the grills go back to being a fashion icon, sharp and fashionable, small and scary. thats what the shark front is all about

    Anyone have source for 3.5mm silicone hose

    4mm ID silicone hose works perfectly. You can use 3mm ID too but for me it was too flimsy and the internal cross sectional area is quite a bit less than 4mm ID.

    E39 reverse light issues

    I just checked again. Yes yes yes you are right. The gear indication on the instrument cluster does not show when you shift gears. It is completely blacked out. @Clavurion If I shift gears to Drive, Reverse or Parked, it does not show on the cluster. When I start the car. Everything lights up except the section that shows the gears.

    E39 reverse light issues

    Oh yeah, the reverse lights have always worked. To be honest, I did not remember having the gear selection on the cluster. I check my lights frequently, and they worked before. I think i also changed the bulb ones before.

    E60 CCC Android system upgrade

    is anyone having trouble with sound interference? mine makes a buzzing noise all the time the headlights are on and the engine is running, if i switch one or the other off it goes away.
