    Ignore gine39530d he bought a shitter, knows nothing about how to fix simple issues or how to use google! He pisses a lot of people off that try to help him and I think is slightly bitter? Anyway, more pics please! Any of the interior? What about a freshly cleaned engine? You can’t beat a sparkly V8 engine bay....

    No, no, no. You keep posting mate. You have a fine car to show there. Just ignore the member who doesn't appreciate you showing, and being proud of, your M5.

    Re Mapping G31/G32

    I am genuinely so tempted by this. The Celtic Map is very appealing and provides really strong gains. Plus they come and do it at my work place. Im not even that fussed about warranty, just wonder what effect it will have on a PCP agreement

    I DONT FUCKING NO! Im not a parts company! I’m not BMW! I'm not a motor factors! Try looking here:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/BMW-5-Series-E39-Genuine-PDC-Parking-Distance-Sensor-6938739-E202/1623262655 There seems to be lots of different makes :- https://m.onlinecarparts.co.uk/car-brands/spare-parts-bmw/5-touring-e39/15268/10718/parking-sensors.html that took me less than 30 seconds to find!
  8. Looks like Audi are doing the same. Oh yes, and - has anyone noticed that it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to find any remotely useful information on the BMW website without spending a LONG TIME looking? What a mess.

    Really? I didn’t intend on bragging, I don’t like bragging at all. I waited for years to get another m5 after regretting selling my lmb in 2010, so I’ve saved and waited a long time...been through divorce and absolute hell personally with depression etc so I was genuinely just pleased to have a nice m5. I genuinely thought it’s also nice to show we look after our cars. I’m sure it won’t be problem free forever, the alloys are bent on the inner rim and need a refurb....I didn’t think it needed new discs til the other so not completely trouble free...there is more and there will continue to be I wished I hadn’t bothered coming here now!

    I don’t know which sensors are “legit”? Try using the WWW to find out! Try searching OEM BMW E39 rear parking sensors and see what comes up....
  12. Bmw was once a prestige brand that had a smattering of models that were class leading and built to last. Now they make hundreds of models that are literally thrown together( just count em, with x series alone, the R&D can't stretch to making them all BMW quality) with lacklustre electronics that go wrong at the nearest fart and pay more attention of what the likes of Ford and Vauxhall are doing without paying homage to the prestige badge and the people who are devotees.
  13. No, you are right, be worried. The engine line up is indeed pants. Although there will be the same mix of current gen 5 er 520d and 530d compared to F10 generation so you will still get a 6 pot diesel, but only in single turbo form, no 535d in G30 flavour ,which is a pity But on a positive note there are plenty of G30/1 540i's out there though more than 1400 MSports on the road, compared to a few hundred F10/1 535i M Sports

    If one of the sensors is bad then entire rear system is messed up right?

    E39, when to call it a day?

    I have a 2002 525d se touring that has to go. It's been on drive a few years, various illnesses have stopped me restoring it, last Friday got a diagnosis that said it must go now. If you want it it's free, it will start and drive onto a trailer/tow truck. Let me know this week yes or no because I'll have to ring scrapper or ebay otherwise. It has new discs, pads, shoes all round (gen BMW) replaced both suspension airbags (non gen) and fitted a second hand compressor. newish 017 battery.
  21. So - I spent a bit of time looking at the latest 5 and 7 series brochures, both on paper and online. Am I missing something here, or are the following statements true : 1. You cannot buy a 5 Series car with a V8 engine in it, unless you buy an M5. 2. If you want a petrol, you get a 4 cylinder engine unless you go for a 540i, which is a 3.0 turbo. Diesel Sixes start with the 530d. 3. There are no 7 Series petrol only engines unless you buy an M760. All are hybrid, and come with poxy 4 cylinder engines. in a 7 SERIES. There is NO V8. In a 7 SERIES. Am I wrong about any of this? Please tell me I am. Can you imagine these crappy little 4 pot engines in 10 years from now? Or even 7 years? They will be boat anchors, like most 4 cylinder BMW engines after about 1997.

    I don’t know which are good/bad or indifferent? But sticking cheap shitty ones in from China might of damaged the module so even if you go straight to BMW even them ones won’t work!

    Re Mapping G31/G32

    Never heard of them, you probably mean Quantum Tuning here - https://www.quantumtuning.co.uk . Seem quite well known with lots of outlets. The Celtic Tuning map for the 520D claims 240bhp and 474Nm. Also well known. Lots of outlets use their maps.

    You just don’t learn do you? Buy cheap, pay twice! Have you actually fixed ANY of the 20 thousand problems you’ve asked about?
