    Best place to buy parts?

    FYI, a BMW front coupling is over £150 with VAT.......... They are fitted with one way so observe where the arrows line up to.

    Best place to buy parts?

    Here are your rear dampers - get these bought ASAP as they're very cheap (half price) and proper parts. Avoid rubbish like KYB or Monroe. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-GENUINE-SACHS-HEAVY-DUTY-REAR-SHOCK-ABSORBERS-SET-BMW-5-E34-COMBI/264030400761?fits=Plat_Gen%3AE34&epid=814578606&hash=item3d797030f9:g:NxoAAOSwhX5b5JCx:rk:3:pf:0 Fuel filter, V belts etc from ECP. Top mounts here: very good seller. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rear-Top-Strut-Mount-BMW-E34-5-Series-FEBI-33521132270-/372443211596 Prop coupling: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-M-Models-Meyle-Propshaft-Prop-Shaft-Centre-Mount-Coupling-Joint-3141520013/271912083915?fits=Plat_Gen%3AE34&epid=248724197&hash=item3f4f3921cb:g:zrcAAOSwLVZVi-3N:rk:5:pf:0

    E39 jacking points question

    Then it will be rusty. Sadly, E39's are a losing battle with rust and other issues. They've done well but there will be very few around in 10 years.

    1 Series and E90 3.64 diff 116i 118i 318i 320i etc

    Nice and quiet with no noises, £299 plus delivery. Fitting possible.

    520i auto radiator

    Possibly yes and it might be better. Custom made hydraulic hoses won't be too much.

    Torsen LSD 3.15 ratio suit E28

    From a Z3 2.8 so standard 188 casing that fits 528i etc. Excellent condition. £499

    E39, when to call it a day?

    E39's are just relics now, an ever widening pit into which you can shovel ££££. E61's are just dogshit, too much to go wrong and they're so bloody ugly - SE versions remind me of those Cornish pastie shoes Clarks used to make. I'd look at an E270 CDI Merc wagon, the 2006-7 onwards version.

    N47 timing chain

    Sounds more like the flywheel.

    Annoyed by the shit handbrake and a weird groaning from the front when steering, it's had new rear discs and front dampers. It does motor along quite well for an old diesel estate.

    520i auto radiator

    I think that's for a manual. The auto ones are much, much harder to find. The benevolent souls at the Motoren Werke will rape you for well over £500 for a rad and Nissens no longer make one at all. The 'late 84 onwards ones are a slightly different depth due to the deeper front apron iirc. The other thing with these are those bastard trans cooler pipes that screw into the base of the rad. After 10-30 years, they really don't like being undone - prepare to replace both pipes if they are as rusty as they normally are. I think Tim misread - the E34 M50 and E36 rads are very similar, E28 ones are totally different.

    I undertook about 10 cars in one go yesterday, just by doing 70/75 in lane 2.
  12. Sir Anthony Regents-Park

    my first e34

    A K reg 535i - I don't think I've seen one before - one of the last.

    Any BMW Club GB Members Here?

    Insurance only for me, but I do 3-4 trackdays a year. I get 15% on parts anyway and have a Halfords trade card.
  14. Sir Anthony Regents-Park

    Should i convert to manual

    Bollocks to a manual conversion. Manual E39's are like tractors imo. A secondhand autobox from a decent breaker, new oil and filter, a morning on a ramp to fit, job done.

    Yes, I have cleaned it up since!
