    Some quips. What the fuck do gardeners do when they retire? I failed my driving test for stalling. The instructor said: “Just get into the fucking car.” I was a rebel. I used to rebel against my parents. What I used to do is, when they went to the shops, I’d run upstairs and turn the immersion heater on for an hour.
  3. I would reckon if was a valvtronic fault would be a complete bank throwing a fault not an individual cylinder as Andrew said before the breathers prob give issue more when warmed up, mine when clogged with moisture will start smoking when warm/hot - I clean them regular and issue is reduced, I know this affects the idle too the thermostat prob wouldn’t cause the issue your experiencing, maybe a long warm up if anything do you know what the fault codes are? These maybe won’t be the actual fault but could go a long way to the correct solution on my e39 535the cam sensor failing gave a similar fault to your experience, and never gave a fault code either is however 4 on the n62 engines, plus eccentric cam sensors too, all getting complicated reply with fault codes, someone can maybe give some guidance
  4. Staying in France

    Dover, hth.
  5. Hi all! It's my first post and I'm exited to be here. I love the look of the M408 M5 wheels, but am not sure if they are compatible / legal with the regular F11 car. Is there any way to calculate / check this? Thanks! Recman
  6. E60/1 BMW iPod interface coding

  7. Fitted these to the front of my car, car has now gone back to standard. Comes with Pod, so plug and play - no modding needed. Tweeters, crossovers and woofers. £120 Collection from luton preferably.
  8. E61 compressor repair

    HI all, My compressor on my 535d lci E61 has started being really noisy. Apparently its down to seals going. has anyone tried this kit? Contemplating on trying to repair it first before i go out and buy a new compressor http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMK-Compressor-Repair-Kit-BMW-5-E61-Air-Suspension-Compressor-repair-kit-/152577418513 Any experiences with it would be great.
  9. Tyre pressure warning

    I bought mine for around £30 and it is self calibrating so I have much more confidence than with my much cheaper sealey one and it is much easier to use with the long wand and rubber hose.
  10. lemforder rear upper control arms

    If it's the same part I'm thinking, the ball joint end is spherical shaped as it pushes into the carrier and the old arms are flat against the carrier.
  11. E39 Piano Black Interior

    £40 4x door trims 3x dash trims 1x centre console/gear surround trim 1x Auto gear knob Collection from luton preferred but can post.
  12. Wheeler Dealers Series 14

    I liked the show, just not the same without Ed and I didn't believe how the car was bought and sold.
  13. Wheeler Dealers Series 14

    I just watched it. I didn't compare Edd to Ant either, for the American market Ant is the ideal person. Edd is brilliant and there's no doubting it, but he's just not American enough for this show now., Ant can pull it off. Without giving it away I didn't realise the original designer planned a certain aspect different. Also how much they are worth in the USA
  14. The kit doesn't come with drop links you use your standard ones. ARB bushes are included.
  15. My third E39! :)

    Should you actually be allowed to use a computer and th'iternet? If you do as I suggest, you'll be sorted in no time haha

    Aye, read that too. He admitted to living a hedonistic life, as much as possible as he didn't want to die old etc...
  19. My third E39! :)

    Ooh new car already?! PICS!!!!!
  20. Project E34 - some Success, some failure!

    Believe it or not, I have bought 8 different types of bulb for this car so far! Don’t get me started on the different screws, nuts and other fixings I’ve replaced - and this is a good car! Previous phone and radio fitters have missed bits and taken short cuts.

  24. Sean Hughes -RIP

    There's numerous suggestions it was cirrhosis, poor sod.
