    Proud to be British!

    If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines 2 years ago, you would have £49.00 today. If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in AIG insurance company 2 years ago, you would have £33.00 today. If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers 6 years ago, you would have nothing today. If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Northern Rock 5 years ago, you would have nothing today But, if you had purchased £1,000 worth of beer one year ago at Tesco's, drunk all the beer, then taken the aluminum cans to the scrap metal dealer, you would have received £214.00. Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. A recent study found that the average Briton walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Britons drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Britons get about 41 miles to the gallon! Makes you proud to be British!

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    not today but on Saturday gave the car a clean, nice bit of snow foam, 2 bucket method wash and put it in the garage + hoovered the interior. In antisipation of the nice weather on Sunday I thought I'd treat it to a coat of show wax (only lasts a month but the gloss is worth it) gave the wheels a polish with AG super resin polish and applied Sonax wheel sealant to them. it's dirty again now but was worth it for this picture on Sunday

    My two E39

    Here's some picture of my two E39. The first one is my first E39 523 99' that I used a lot of time upgrading from when I bought it for about almost 4 years ago. When I bought it was all stock with no extra options like electric seats, seat warmer and such. And this is my newly bought E39 535 98' its pretty much stock right now but alot of upgrade coming it's next year as in exterior and interior for the car.

    Car wont start

    It's an N47 lump. Atleast it's unlikely to be a timing chain issue with those symptoms.

    I build cafe racers. I'm on my 7th, a Yamaha XJR1200. Prior to that I built a Honda CB750K1, a Triumph T140 Bonneville, another Yamaha, an XJR1300 that time, a Honda CB1000, a Triumph 6TA and a Suziki GT550. My Dad always had bikes and my first memories are of being taken to the local ice cream shop on the tank of his 1958 Triumph T110, I must have been about 4 at the time and bikes have stuck with me ever since.

    What engine is this? Baffling that people come asking about an engine fault but don't say what engine!? If connectors have burnt out I'd be checking fuses and working back.

    I would do a refurb but get all 4 re-done. Yes it's more expensive but they'll all look the same and its an opportunity to apply some C5 or other sealant. Smart repairs are noticeable when cleaning the wheel and you'll be forever knowing the repair is present.

    I'm guessing if there was enough damage to burn out components, something else may also have been damaged.

    Post Brexit Result

    Borrowing a line from whiskychsser Thought of the day: Is this more evidence that Corbyn is an opportunist politician now, by him, Surgeon, and Carwyn Jones meeting with Michel Barnier, when the EU explicitly forbids the U.K. Government to talk to other European members regarding Brexit negotiations? Also further insight with why a lot of people do believe that the EU is motivated by self-interest and only want to protect themselves and not democracy?

    Speed camera detector

    The Thinkware F770 dash camera has speed camera warning that was one of the reasons apart from the front and rear cameras, it has already saved me by warning me of a mobile speed camera at a location I have never seen one, admittantly I was only about 3 miles per hour over the limit, but with the new speeding laws and fines that have now come into effect, I considered the Thinkware F770 a worthy investment.

    Speed camera detector

    I have one of these in both my BMW and my Toyota Hilux https://www.amazon.co.uk/Aguri-Fusion-GTX200-Detector-Bluetooth/dp/B071XYW2K3/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1499941594&sr=8-4&keywords=speed+camera+detector Radar and laser detector, GPS database, plus HD dash camera all in one unit. It detects police guns and the mobile vans from about a mile away on motorway. Has a GPS sensor and a updatable database for all know speed cameras in Europe (no subscription fee) can update to latest database via USB lead on a computer or via Bluetooth using your mobile phone. Has settings so you can be warned of all spots that often have a mobile speed trap. screen displays your real speed using GPS sensor. The Dash camera is good also with all the normal features you get on them, including parking mode where the camera detects movement in front of the camera and records in HD video if it detects someone, this was useful recently when over the road from me reversed off there driveway in to my mrs van and drove off, she noticed the damage before she went to work so I looked on the camera and sure enough we caught them doing it, that night when they came home we went over to show them the video, funny how they said they was just about to come and tell us lol. needless to say they paid for the damage (£450 worth so quids in on both detector/cameras already) The dash camera also has G sensor in it so if knocked while parked up it records, or if in a crash while driving it write protects the file so it doesn't record over it. I would say having a Dash camera is a no brainier, but I thought may as well spend a little more and get one with speed camera detector built in as you never know when you might miss a sign or be a little bit over the limit etc. I'm sure most if honest have been over the speed limit before, and will do again.

    Access for wires 530d

    Easy, just above the servo there is a square rubber grommet, just punch a small hole in that and run your wire through, it comes out just above the brake pedal. Dab a bit of sealant where it passes through once you're all wired up and you should be good. I used this hole to connect up my welcome lights, a great little mod.

    Adaptive Cruise Control Retrofit

    Adaptive cruise control must be amazing. I badly miss even my E60's dumb cruise control when I go overseas and rent a car without it. In terms of retrofit - well that sounds very difficult to me, but almost nothing is impossible given the time, money and determination.

    Honestly the standard hoses are up to the task, it's just a shame they're quite expensive. I didn't think they would be but I'm holding 2.8bar of boost through mine on all standard pipework and I have no problems at all with it. A mapped x35D should really be around 2bar on a stage 1, and up to 2.4bar on stage 2. I've yet to blow one to bits, and @iiNNeX can vouch for how it gets driven!
