    Intravee yes or no in today's market

    I wouldn't be without an Intravee if I had an E39 with nav. The extras can bring the car so much more up to date.

    It’s been a while....

    Think I may have got you mixed up with Essex boy racer.

    Very nice. I remember your gorgeous Sterling Grey E39 Touring.

    E39 530i

    Why does every tw@t on ebay call their Sport an M Sport? He needs to go out and measure his wheels too.

    E39, when to call it a day?

    I loved my E39, and used to enjoy working on it, but at 56 years of age I was starting to ache from head to toe for days after a few hours of crawling around underneath it. So, having changed career I can now afford to lease, so I just get a brand new car every two years, can't be arsed with old cars anymore.

    e39 530d M Sport - Individual Scarab Green

    Nice E39 Sport.
  7. Can't think of anything I'd want less than a Land Rover Defender. Oh, hang on a minute, an E60.

    New here with E46 330i

    Welcome. I had an E46 330i Sport saloon for a while and really enjoyed it. The saloon looks so much better than the coupe, much more practical too.

    LED Angel Eyes random flashing

    I was going to suggest that as the OP's car is an 03, he may be able to turn off the cold check. I used Navcoder when I had my E39.

    Standard features that you never use.

    So you drive an Audi.

    Quite a list there Richard. I forgot about the two above, I never use them either.

    Standard features that you never use.

    I was cleaning the interior of my car the other day and while cleaning the steering wheel I was reminded that I have flappy paddles. I'd forgotten they were there. I've had the car since March 1st and I've never used, or even ever felt the need to use them. I didn't spec them with the car, they are standard but they may as well not be there. This got me thinking, what else has the car got that I've never used. The only other thing that I've got and never used is the sliding and tilting panoramic sunroof with electric sunshade. I don't ever open the windows, let alone the roof. So what standard features have you got that you've never ever used?

    Exactly. I've always said that you can drive safely whilst exceeding the speed limit, and equally you can drive dangerously whilst driving below the speed limit. But it's easier and cheaper to just stick a camera up and watch the cash come rolling in. This is something I've never understood. In my job I often have to drive a van to Acton in the early hours and you see it every time. You shouldn't need main beam on a motorway full stop, it's a long straight road with no bends ffs.

    Are these any good

    I've seen worse, but I'd still rather have second hand Hella originals. There used to be a guy on Ebay somewhere in Brum who always had reconditioned sets for sale, don't know if he's still on there though.

    Adding flappy paddles...

    A lot less faff than a clutch and gearstick though.
