    I've just read the whole DW thread from start to finish. This car is worth its weight in time and effort alone! You along with one other member on here have gone onto my list of people that take it above and beyond the call of "Clean & Maintained" I haven't managed to get on my own list yet! Credit to you and GLWS!

    Here are some pics of my efforts so far. Bit of a plunge for me as I am certainly no pro sprayer but I can neither leave it to rust again or afford it to be done else where so. There were some pretty major scratches along both sides of the car so I have gone about removing the lot. Work in progress.

    There are just four rhd facelift B10 V8S Tourings, of which Greenelektas is the last and probably the most stunning, and just four rhd facelift B10 V8 Tourings, of which mine is the last.

    Hi Piper - As per previous discussion on this, the general pricing level for 2nd hand/used modules that are known to work and which will have some sort of recourse in case of issues etc is around the £1200-1400 level from the Germaniks website. Anyone who's not so confident with installation will need to factor in installation costs on top of that. I'm able to make bezels to hold the monitor securely using automotive grade materials and I left details of that in either this or the other thread. There'd be a CAD development cost as well as the low volume production run of 20 units which would be a minimum and ballpark cost for those would be around the £200-250 level each. These aspects are what most/other E39 owners will want to consider for this project and cannot be done for under £1000. If anyone wishes to gamble on NBT modules that are being auctioned or listed at a lower price to save money can do so of course, but other risks present themselves - non working units, ones that go faulty after a short'ish time and of course have no comeback etc. In the big USA thread, the owner of the germaniks site will make bezels by sending in the outer trim piece from an oem monitor. He'd then use bodyfiller to make the shape needed for the monitor and then paint it. I think a solution like this won't last multiple years due to the variance of temperature, UV and humidity in a vehicle interior, so you'd perhaps need to do it again within a few years. I think a price of around £125-1140 was mentioned. So, it looks like if someone takes a gamble on finding the modules cheap enough, spends the £500 or so on the interface itself, DIY fits and make a bezel, then it seems 'possibly' around a £1000 could be spent, but most likely it'll be more. Jamie - I think depending which NBT module you get, it can have DAB and video playback functionality as well as BT built in - check the functionality of each of the different possible NBT modules. Ipod control and playback I think will be an extra cost on top, either a BMW solution or an aftermarket one. Do check the big USA forum thread for what those guys have done/are doing and also with respect to the various software/firmware niggles and issues they're finding for this project. Thread is here; http://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?2153382-NBT-CIC-CCC-retrofit-in-E39-E38-E53 Cheers, Dennis!

    You're welcome David, credit where it is due, you are always a pleasure to deal with. True, you cold have asked for more money for those inner fins, as you had me between a rock and a hard place, but being the gentleman that you are,...... you didn't. Speaking of Turbine wheel covers, they seem to have developed a cult following of their own over the last few years. I know they divide opinion, personally, I love them.

    Superb , Bayerische . I had to laugh when I started reading this thread , knowing that there would not be a chance in hell that you would be selling this car via a public forum , and so many readers were awaiting an ...... Unfortunately this rare beauty is now for sale . Top quality and a great enthusiastic thread . It's so refreshing to see ! p.s. Thanks for the mention re the turbine fins ......... I should have asked for more MONEY , but as we both know that's not what drives many of us ! D

    Bleed screw M10 x 1,0. CLICK Some copper grease on the threads (not on sealing surface) of bleed screw when installed will prevent it seizing.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    A few members have been running them on here - http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/111453-front-brakes-for-545i/ Mo_1986 is running them with texta pads and has had no issues. Worth reviving that thread, would be good to track positives and negatives. As stated, get the dimpled and grooved, the drilled version have a risk of cracking.

    Shift Upgrade

    2 litres will see you right, most bottles have a kind of small extendable "hose" that comes out of the bottle as you pull the top off but if not then yes a small hose will suffice. My comment about the gearbox itself wan't aimed in a way to say "get out and get it sorted" but rather to say that IMO you'd simply be spending x amount of money on new parts that won't really address the issue, and if it bothered you that much then perhaps put that money towards the cost of having the box looked at or a second hand one. Notchiness per se especially when cold is pretty standard fayre for all bmw's and certainly the E39 M5, but as pointd out, any short shifter by nature will exacerbate the effort needed to shift and this the notchiness in a trade off for a shorter movement of gearstick, so if its the feel you are concerned about a SSK won't help but actually worsen that. NOt related to the reverse issue but what will help the notchiness is more weight behind the shifting assembly, so a weighted knob like the F10 M5 gearknob will assist in the feel, and becasue the knob is shorter and nothing is changed in the linkage side of things, you will get a slightly reduced throw with no drawbacks. Also the F10 knob is illuminated so you will retain that. Next stage if you want more assistance would be a weighted selector rod from the likes of UUC or you can kind of do this cheaply yourself and remove you old selector rod (the horizontal one that goes from gearstick to gearbox) and wrap a heavy guage solder around it, then tape it on nice and tight. This will increase the weight of the rod and provide you with more assistance with no drawbacks.

    Cold air intakes. Usually only fitted to the M5 with it's twin air intakes, the standard intakes are quite near the radiator and result in warm air being drawn in, cold air gives more power. The intake to the filter box is simply redirected to the front of the bumper.

    Yes mate, technically Barton Hill, but can remotely book on at Avonmouth and Stoke Gifford (Bristol Parkway) too. I'm a "boil in the bag" just coming up to 2 years on the company now, i was one of the last lot of trainee's "off the street", started Jan 06 2014. Count myself really lucky as i can't see that happening again for a while. We've been assured that we are safe too, there's a new incinerator about to open at Avonmouth, and there's going to be a lot of work associated with Hinkley Point when that gets under way.

    Stripping down boot lock

    Mine does the same thing, must be another common little niggle! All I do is wd40 the cylinder with the boot open and keep pushing it back and forwards through the boot lid liner and it loosens it up. Not helpful to you I know but I will be interested to see what someone says on fixing it... Is there not a spring in there to pop it back?
