    e39 530d manual
  1. Who was watching Splash on BBC2? See the e28! Hot or what Cirrus isn't it?
  2. As per below or Calypso
  3. Some are quieter than others, I have had a Lexus owner and Audi TDi owner in mine who were both surprised mine was a diesel whereas there is no mistaking the fact my mates 535d is a diesel. Maybe the brand of oil or how it was run in has something to do with it.
  4. A simple and obvious question for some. My car has halogen angel eyes and I need headlight bulbs, does anyone know which ones they are please? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi Need a 150a alternator for an e39 530d please, 150amp. Possibly from an early X5 too. Thanks
  6. Thanks for checking Tim. I think they are mostly if not all on pre-facelift cars. e38's & e39's. Any joy with the other parts I need?
  7. Looks quite clean and unmolested, would like to see it put back on the road.
  8. Bought my 530d in March 2010 for £1600, She has never let me down. This is what has been been changed, I do all of the work myself. Front Bumper, rear bumper, Intercooler, Fan, A/C Compressor, Water pump, thermostat, alternator, starter motor, clutch, flywheel, propshaft (rebuilt), front arms, discs and calipers, shocks, springs, top mounts, anti-roll bars(front and rear), fuel lines, brake lines, windscreen, doors, boot, bonnet, boot, wings, ecu, locks, steering wheel, wheels tyres, headlining, seats, door cards, headlights, rear lights, stereo system and speakers, battery, wiper rack,
  9. Hi I believe the DSC equipped master cylinders have 3 outlets. I also need a passenger door in Aspen silver for a facelift e38 and a front bumper trim where the washer jet sits for the driver side in Orient blue please? Thanks
  10. Hi All I need a servo and master cylinder for my e38, cylinder seems to have filled the servo with brake fluid. The part number on the servo is 34331165056 and the cylinder has 2 outlets, one at the front, one on the left (nearside). Not sure if it has one or two "prongs" to attach to the pedal, will check tomorrow. Thanks in advance.
  11. Anybody?
  12. I can't think of a better combination, my favourite car and favourite engine bar the m30. Good luck. I think the manifold on the later X5's lets the turbo sit further forward which might help clear the steering but don't quote me on it.
  13. Hi I have got blue smoke from one of my tail pipes, checked ccv's they are all fine, have put it down to valve seals. I have seen a special tool to change the valve seals with the head in situ. Can anyone recommend a specialist who can help me sort my problem out? Thanks in advance
  14. Is that not the paint code?
  15. A friend of mine has got a 535d I look after, fabulous car if you like autos. He is in his 3rd year of ownership. The first year the gearbox failed, last year the turbos needed changing and the dpf light has just come on. Not a spot of rust, suppose it will be on the road for a good while yet.
