    Driving in Europe after 29th March

    So funnily enough i'm driving over to Belgium to see family, scheduled to return on the 31st March. I'll bring both my UK and Belgian passports to be sure although with things progressing as they are looks like the 28th March deadline will be extended. Worst case scenario and we can't get through Dunkirk or Calais i'll glady hole up back in Brussels for a few days

    Bluetooth Fuzzy

    Cheers for these suggestions, i've tried all of this bar unplugging the battery, i didn't know i could 'reset' the bluetooth module, so will try that this week. Phone works fine in all other circumstances.

    Bluetooth Fuzzy

    Hi Guys, I have the OEM Bluetooth option in my 2002 E39 which has worked great for years, however recently when on a call it's extremely fuzzy and crackled, almost like a dalek. Can anyone point me towards what could be failing? Thx Clem

    Cars holding their value better?

    Noticed exactly this. Paid £4500 for 86k mile 2002 540 sport in excellent condition in 2012. If i want a 10 year old top spec E60 or F10 it's around double that price. Can't understand why tbh....

    Wiper Rack

    Couldn't say, but i can take a look at the arms and see whether they're damaged too. I have the bonnet and it's not been damaged by the arm....

    If you need a replacement wiper rack, you can come and take the one off my breaker for £30, based in Sutton.

    Buying an X5 - any advice if you own/ owned one?

    A mate has one (4.6 sport i think) and find's running it expensive, check out the price of replacement tyres for example... Other than that feedback is it's a very capable all rounder

    E39, when to call it a day?

    Good Question. I've been looking around and tbh can't find anything that i'd want to commit to like i did with the E39, so i've decided to get a 'fun' car for a year or two till having kids forces me into something more sensible again. I've been looking closely at M6 Grand Coupe 4 doors, if prices for the LCI drop enough in 2019 then that's a possibility. I also keep coming back to E60 tourings, the LCI version of which are 'paletable', although i'm not a huge fan of the E60 design generally.

    E39, when to call it a day?

    After 6.5 years of ownership i'll be replacing the 540 with something newer in 2019. Still a great car @ 120k but starting to feel dated. Driving it back to back with my E34 though reminds me how much of a step up the e39 was in every sense...

    Trackday e34s anyone ??

    Agreed. I bought Gordon's old 535i sport off him which was stripped, bucket seats etc, even had a snazzy paint job / decal work done by him. Was good fun round a couple of track days but it's weight, Stock suspension and relative lack of power meant it wasn't that suited. Compared to the MX5 we use now it's night and day, i'd pick the MX5 any day for trackwork
