    Absolutely, I'll get it all cleaned up first as it's been in my parents garage for past 2 months so it's a bit dusty!! My friend, who owns a classic car restorers, took it to have the mot for me as I'm away at the moment. Even he sounds quite interested in buying it but I'm not keen on his 'mates rate' !!! Thanks for all your replies, very much appreciated. Will get ad up soon.

    brake wear sensor

    Agree with @Grizzle_E60 re distances. I reset my front with a Pagid sensor (took half a dozen attempts to reset!) and it went to 25,000 miles. Initially it reset itself to -9,000 miles and was lit up in big red lights. After a good few attempts it finally went to 25,000 miles but it will soon learn the driving style and adjust and you may find the service distance increases. The warning on the iDrive should say if it is front or rear sensors as they are on different circuits. If you put a new wear sensor in the rear and reset it, it will very quickly adjust itself as if the pads are worn the first few times you brake the disc will nicely wear down the wear indicator to match the previous wear. When I replaced my rear E60 pads and discs, the iDrive still said 37,000 miles to go but the pads were worn. I replaced the sensor (genuine one as part of a value line rear brake service kit) but did not reset the idrive. No issues for two years and then it went for the F10.

    brake wear sensor

    Front should be 25k i;ve just reset mine after a pad and disc upgrade but i used a Meyele sensor (shock horror Bmw lol) Rears are fine with that mileage. I think they are at it my self and its a duff sensor, I would be taking it back and kicking up a fuss.

    Winter Tyres

    Went with the Continental TS850P in the end from Tyre Leader. Will see how they perform over winter with (Southern) Scottish weather

    Angel eyes / halos

    Same as above, if you show a picture of your headlight we will be able to tell you what you're looking for. I'll answer your questions on the basis that your car is an LCI (post 2007). I believe there are just 2 main types of headlamps in the LCI, Bi-Xenon and Halogen. 1) All of them, but how good they will look will depend which bulb your particular one takes 2) Bi-Xenons = particular headlamp with built in ballasts and a specific bulb so when you flash your high beam it comes from the same bulb as the headlight (the inner bulb don't seem to have a purpose) Xenons - probably a halogen set up with a HID/Xenon kit installed Halogen - standard halogen bulbs 2a) the BiXenon use a different angel bulb to halogens, more powerful, the noticeable difference is that the inner ring is much more powerful 3) show a pic

    Hi I would a lot simpler if you could post a photo of your headlamp. From memory there are 8 different types of headlamp fitted to the E60 Pre LCI = 4 types LCI = 4 types. Again from memory i think there are only 3 different types of angle eye bulbs depending on the headlamp fitted.

    E39 530D auto vs manual mode

    Hi, As above from Stevecvo. When I had my car re-mapped after the first auto gearbox rebuild back in 2007, it was more aggressive in Sport mode as the parameters within the map were changed to provide it. In auto Drive mode those same parameters had different 'lesser extent' levels programmed in. A short while after that custom re-map, I also added a paddle shift steering wheel from an E46 CSL, and when I'd tip the gearlever into Sport mode, it was more of a joy to go find twisty roads and drive more spiritedly using the paddle shifters! Unfortunately, the gearshift 'time' wasn't any quicker by using the paddles, just the same response time. The 'fun factor' of using them for me, was greatly increased though! Cheers, Dennis!

    Reviving E39 530D Webasto..

    OK - will attempt to tackle this in the next couple of days and feedback, and will get the water pump ordered in the meantime. I just want to say again, thanks for your time and patience Clavurion.. it's amusing the amount of threads regarding these heaters I've looked at on numerous different forums, and each time, there you are providing information and guidance. So - sincerely - thanks. It's people like you that help keep these cars going! This link is a very step by step guide explaining exactly what you just said to do, but in complete newb "has never used NCS tool yet" type layman's terms: https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?2000502-NCS-Expert-Changing-the-vehicle-order-on-EARLY-E39s&p=27981614#post27981614 Posting it here so I can refer back to it when I come to have a go at it
