  1. My plan for it was to bolt up to my m30 in the e28 m535i as ratios are basically dog leg plus over drive with the 3.07 diff so i figured it was the best of both boxes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The bell housing is not separate hence finding an m5 one is tricky and to lesser extent v8 ones. Otherwise we'd all be using e36/46 m3 boxes which I think are the same internals. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Well you didn't when I had it for sale on here [emoji38] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222513166751 Here you go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I sold a 6 speed box, master & slate cylinder and prop for £685. It came from a known car with 160k though I'd never driven it. Car was off the road because of the engine not the box though and had evidence of a oil change or teo. HTHs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. It's like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/282313037377 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thinking as I have the m5 and m535 models I probably don't need this so tentatively for sale. It's the purple version complete with box and mint though been on display so a bit of dust. eBay suggest 75 plus post so 75 posted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. http://skimmydiscs.co.uk/ looks worth a shot.
  14. yes, a kind of grab / release action. As i say its been fine for ages after the work (about 16K) but noticed it again after a run to Devon with lots of hauling down from speed. Being a manual i do use the hand brake and tend not to keep the pads on the disc though about town i wouldn't expect the discs to get hot enough to cause deposition of pad material in any event. Think i'll check i haven't lost a balance weight, then try a clean of the discs before new discs (again) i still have the old (new) ones in the garage that lasted 500miles so i might get those skimmed if i can find someone who'll do it.
  15. ^ yup just use it - one of my favourite cheap motors was a 523i touring from tristram - it needed a pair of cam/crank sensors and a cat in my tenure but moved it one for what it cost me bar fuel and insurance - its still on the reoad according to DVLA
  16. I fitted genuine BMW discs and am still suffering Thus far its had TCA's & bushes, 2x discs, pads, calipers (which cured it the longest) was pondering bearings but might try a wire wheel first.
  17. Thing is ive tried very hard to avoid this any reason why the e39 should be seemingly so susceptible?
  18. Would love to pop down but family arrangements have pulled rank being as its bank holiday
  19. Has anyone physically cleaned their discs? Wire brush or rotary brush in a grinder or similar? Did this help?

  21. So before I bother with eBay any interest at £70 posted. Cheapest you'll find. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Fwiw it does feel like high spots on the disc where you feel a grab/ release effect. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. ^ that's something I do try and avoid and being as mine is a manual I do use the handbrake. I'd have thought that would be a bigger issue with autos? That said part of my journey to Devon involved lots of braking from 60 into roundabouts so some good use which usually sorts things out I find. Odd. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Mine never had one. Looks like some kind of heating element or resistor. Odd. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. How many miles have you done since? I've swapped discs only for those to "warp" in no time. Mines been fine for ages having replaced everything g but a recent trip to Devon revealed the shudder is back. I've not investigated yet.
