    My third E39! :)

    So yesterday was detail day! I only had time to deal with paintwork but it's a start! Snow foam, wash, clay, two stage polish and then finished with Hellshine The Abyss. So hard to see a difference in the pics with silver but it certainly pops now! Next time around I'll re-wash and put some wax on, then on to interior and engine bay However, the day didn't end well! I pulled the car out of my unit to find a puddle of transmission fluid on the floor!! I'm not sure if I blasted something with the pressure washer when doing the inner arches, or it's just coincidence, but sadly I don't get to see and benefit from a nice, clean, shiny E39 today I'm guessing it will be oil cooler or pipes but will see when time allows further investigation. In the meantime, here's some pics of the good bits!

    Trump, trump, trumpety trump!

    Yes, Trump is a first class nugget. However, as long as he sorts us out a trade deal that we can then go and beat the Euro mafia round the head with, i care not. 'Mericans' are full of shit at the best of times, they have no class, never will. Its a country of haves, and have nots, same as here. People the world over are tired of getting mugged off, so the elite can live off our efforts, its why Brexshit happened, and its why Trump got in. Now if the politico wake the fuck up, and get back in the real world with the rest of us, its all roses.But i don't see that a coming anytime soon...

    When were you last in Paisley? lol its a lot better than it used to be. 20 years ago it was a bit iffy right enough, talent was good in Furry Murrays so it was worth the risk.

    They are still at my local mechanic to get tyres taken off rims. Will collect tomorrow. There is a place in Paisley I'm thinking about using, near to St Mirrens ground.

    Trump, trump, trumpety trump!

    So the real question is, is Trump really the smart one and the establishment the incompetent bumbling fools and our perception of the world swayed by the media? Fact is, it is what it is and we either take what there is and see what we can do with it or carry on whining... Wishing him to fail is a bit like wishing the pilot of the plane that you are on crashes to prove that you were right about him being an idiot.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Looks good. Kind of goes with the colour of the car more than the white. Nah. You need at least a white/yellow light shining in the front.

    Looking into it. Going to visit the Royal Marine Museum Eastney to enquire if they can accommodate us for some E28's on the Promenade, or back to Fort Nelson for E28's on the Hill v3.0. Looking to organise something in May so if anybody has any preferences or can point out any obvious conflictions with other events then please chime in. Will update in due course as things develop. Enjoy your weekend. Regards, Mick

    Trump, trump, trumpety trump!

    They have said he's the most dangerous president ever elected. I'd argue Bush jr still holds that accolade by a long way. Trump may say some daft things but he ain't stupid......Bush was/is just plain stupid which to my mind made him very dangerous, his Middle East foray sort of backs that up I think.

    My 2016 535d does this OK so it definitely should. Dealer visit time sadly I think.

    F10 misting up inside...

    Hmm. Thanks. Maybe if it's dry enough at the weekend I'll start doing some proper diagnosis. Food for thought from you both. I'll let you know. As it's under warranty from the seller I could try there too if it is the seal.

    The exact reason why I stick with run flats. Yes, they are harder, yes they are more expensive, but you'll be glad you have them fitted if you get a flat. Sod carrying a spare. Really? I've had to be towed back with trashed run flats on four occasions over the last few years. Three of them had a sidewall collapse and of course they all needed replacing at £250 a pop. The last one that went on the M1 on the way to a job would have cost me over £500 if I hadn’t the space saver. I always carry it.

    My third E39! :)

    The silver is growing on me! Well mission accomplished today - car driven down from Leeds and it drives beautifully! The only thing I could pick at - if it is anything - is the temp gauge is at about 11 O'Clock - my last two E39s (530ds) the needle was always at 12 O'clock. Most of the cooling system was replaced 3 years ago so it should all be ok - it runs very well. I've already ordered some aero/flat wiper blades for the car and some decent locking wheel nuts. Intravee II may be on the cards as really liked that when I had it before. I was pleasantly surprised that there's an AUX socket lurking in the glove box, so had tunes off my phone the whole way home! I had to take a pick too, when walking back to the car after some shopping day. Any old excuse!

    Thanks to Mick and Rob for organising, had chance to meet other like minded members. Great few hours. Good to get a selection of 5s together. Looking forward to next year.
