  1. 318TI

    Had a few of them and got 2 at the minute...got one for my son to learn to drive in but sadly once he passed he cant get ot insured at all ...a M42 powered one which is a daily ( ish ) and a stripped out M44 powered one , cage , coilovers, brake upgrade etc, needs finished but without all the weight the M44 is a very nippy car I am doing alot of travelling from Fife to Oban just now and although my 530 is great for that the compact really makes it a fun drive and you can really get going on these types of roads ...they handle great , drive great ...much like an updated E30 .

  7. Windscreen Replacement

    i agree with Andy ... i have had 2 done .. you need trims at same time as install .. they are bonded in ..you cant clip them in afterwards. On my E32 i had the screen done and the trims were not usuable after removed so it got a generic rubber trim / seal fitted..it was a snug fit and looked OK but its totally different from OEM but i wasnt keeping the car so it done the job
  8. FS: E39 Black interior door/ dash trims

  11. Aux cable input help

    @Marc 86 .. if you replace the changer lead with this AUX cable then the changer is redundant with no wiring and no power? How will this work ?
  12. I have to do my rear subframe mounts , looking at Meyle mounts or should i just polybush it while i am at it ... i havent driven an E39 with poly mounts ..interetsted to hear of any views / difference to the way it drives / general feedback before i do this ..is it a worthwhile mod over teh original rubber mounts ?
  13. 17 year old driver insurance oddity !!!

    so to update this the compact was a defo no go , the 530 was OK until renwal time and then it went sky high . Looked about at Corsas, Polos etc and they were all pretty dear for what they were so ended up in a 58 plate Astra Sri XPack for just a little more insurance than a Corsa. I prefer a bit of car around him rather than a small box so worth teh extra .. Its in his name , he can earn NCB so all good ... a decent first car i think
  14. FS: E39 Black interior door/ dash trims
