    Audio installers in East London?

    Hi GBS, Does it 'have' to be East London? if not, then there's some excellent specialists in Oxford, Wandsworth, High Wycombe and the Brighton/Worthing area. All of the specialists in these areas have excellent experience with E39 installs. Drop me a PM if you like to discuss your requirements and I'll have a few more recommendations too. Cheers, Dennis!

    It happens to all 5 series eventually !

    Hi, When I saw it my jaw fell open ! I had to spin round and take the pics and I almost felt sick when doing so! Yes, it was in the Trading Estate and thankfully, I've not seen this thing driving around here out of hours so I'll assume it comes in from another town! That all said, aside from the usual local smatterings of shocking BMW's, there's many more nice ones around and plenty of other marques too! Cheers, Dennis!

    E39 Front Sport bumper finishing trims - NON PDC

    Hi, It won't matter on the finish, they're going to be painted anyway! Hopefully you will have them and will wait to hear from you either way Cheers, Dennis!
  9. Hi, I require a pair of the finishing mouldings which are non PDC for a Sport Sport bumper. light scratches are fine as they'll be painted, no broken tabs etc please. Cheers, Dennis!
  10. Hi Tim, Do you have the tailgate handle assembly ? it's the complete part I'd need, handle/bulb holders, the body coloured piece... Cheers, Dennis!

    E60 front lip

    Hi, There's many potential lip spoilers you could go for and at all different price levels. They'll mainly be for Sport model bumpers, but there's also some for non Sport models. Have you got a shortlist of the ones you are interested in? Cheers, Dennis!

    Coming Soon for E39 owners

    Hi, Apologies for not updating recently. The specialist I've been working with mentioned that a number of larger orders have recently come in and my potential custom would need to be postponed for 2/3 months. The last 3/4 weeks I've been with another and having to repeat some aspects, so hoping to sign off asap with them. Just a little bit longer and I'll announce full details to you all Cheers, Dennis!

    Rear tyres

    Hi, Different tyres have different compounds for different applications and also, within each type of application, there's different 'Treadwear' characteristics. You've not said which model of tyre you've been using. Look on the side of the tyre you'll see a 'Treadwear' number and the higher it is, the more 'hard wearing' the compound of the rubber and thus, the more usage/miles you'll get from them. There's all sorts of other dynamics for asking this, driving style, if you often drive on poorly maintained roads, your suspension geometry and the condition of your suspension components etc. Price of tyres does not mean the more expensive they are the longer they'll last. For a long time I've used Federal SS595's on my car and they were awesome for tyre wear, I did well over 30K miles on my initial set and subsequent ones have lasted 20K+ miles before going with a set of wheels I've sold and still having 5mm + of tread left. I did look at the Falken FK452's as they were a more well known brand and a similar price but many reports came back, like what Duncan mentions and 15K miles tops was the feedback. Kumho KU31's also get mentioned for longetivity. Also, other characteristics like grip and road noise etc were all well above average for these tyres. You need to spend some time looking around at the right tyres for you and the budget you wish to spend. Cheers, Dennis!
