  1. Bloody typical.... needed a caliper a few months back and they were like hens teeth!

    Nothing wrong with straight lining a roundabout. ... :)
  3. It's also ideal to be put in a container and sent to the eastern fringes of Europe.... Next we'll see of it is on Youtube being drifted around some semi nuked post apocalypse type of city...

    Need a little help with LED angel eyes

    I'd just buy a set of LEDs to fit the holder - they are normally plug and play... I wouldn't fanny around splicing cables and coding....

    E39 M5 Individual - 1 of 1 in this colour!

    June 1999 production date, but not registered until 31st December 1999... So a relatively early car hence why no TPS, so perhaps it came in on the cars from July if the owners manual is anything to go by...

    Hmm not 100% on that - never heard of the TPMS being part of the 2000 facelift...although I did check on the 1998/9 car Tiff Needell tested for Top Gear and that didn't have the TPMS button. Perhaps it was the early build cars that missed out... I just saw this picture of a pref-facelift car on another forum and it does have the TPMS button. And then out of curiosity I checked the online 2000 owners handbook and it does have instructions on how to set the system and it looks like it's from July 1999 if the copyright information bottom right is correct.

    An ideal way to get rid of that E39. (and other old crap)

    LOL that BMW still had a valid MOT at the time of the race if it was in March this year...

    Electrical gremlins

    This was a new one to me, yesterday after a 10 mile run, pulled in to a car park and switched off my car. ... However.... With the key out of the ignition and in my hand, and engine off The wipers were still running The radio was still playing The internal lights were on External lights set to auto were still on Rev counter was showing 2,000 revs I put the key back in the ignition and all of the dash lights came back on as normal but the car made no attempt to start when the key was turned, nothing just the dash lights. I got out but the remote key was inoperative for the central locking. Locking the drivers door manually with key only locked the drivers door. Tried again to start the car and still nothing. So decided to disconnect the battery, strangely the remote key popped open the boot lid on first attempt. Anyway disconnected the battery for 1 minute, reconnected it and normal service was resumed. All oddities gone. I've never had anything like this before with my 2 E39s in the last 14 years, so just curious if anyone else has? (The battery itself is at max 3 months old and I'd done a 60+ mile run the day before so I'd have thought it's okay and I had a new alternator fitted last October) Any ideas ?
  11. I asked about refurbishing on the M5 board recently... https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39-m5-e52-z8-discussion/575073-shadow-chrome-wheel-restoration-uk.html Gloucestershire may be a bit off your radar but definitely closer than Lepsons...

    Civil Parking Charge Notice

    Appeal, but also get on the case of the manager of the store and use your receipt as evidence... does it have a time stamp as to when you paid ...? Also hit up their Facebook page and make a complaint - you may even get some vouchers sent your way for the inconvenience ...

    Matt Le Blanc to leave Top Gear

    Time to find a new format for the show... Trying to copy Clarkson et Al was always a bad idea...

    Best places to sell......

    Just thinking... there is an E39 Facebook page for buying and selling... might be worth looking that up as it's FOC to advertise and you have direct exposure to E39 enthusiasts... https://www.facebook.com/groups/bmwe39clubukbuysell/?fref=nf

    GLWTS - I like the price Was it really 9yrs ago !!! ?? How about a few more shots of the inside of the car? Dash, odometer, phone rest, boot, back seats etc. Close up of the Nav Screen - gear knob, get a message up in the dash display to reassure about the pixel repair...
