  1. Did you have an agreed value classic policy on this or just a standard comp cover? I dont imagine the books prices will reflect the uplift in price these have seen in recent times.
  2. Why put shitters on a BMW in the first place?? Sell it to we buy any car and buy a Mondeo GhiaX Shitanium or whatever their top spec is these days. Joking aside I have used acceleras on wee town cars (aka puddle jumpers) and not had any issue but would go in at mid range at the very least on a bigger car that was doing distance. Tyres are very subjective but IMO midrange stuff from Kumho, Falken, Uniroyal have done me fine. I run Continental Sport Contact 5 on my E39 but thats my babe so she gets spoiled.
  3. I thought all E60s had newer vortex type...........Everyday is a school day and all that. I dont think they are a huge expense even from BMW. Try forum sponsors COTSWOLD BMW or your local if you can wangle a trade discount. I wouldnt waste time hunting aftermarket unless you have a lot of time on your hands.
  4. If its done over a 100k miles would that still be considered premature wear?? Anyway if its done that miles and drives right and sounds right then I would not be too concerned about timing chain issue. Ask yourself this-of all the N47 engined cars how many are still on the road and how many have been written off by timing chain issue??
  5. E39 Slimmbones finned diffuser. Imported from the USA. £285
  6. My daily is a Seiko Sarb 033. Lovely watches
  7. Sleeve it. I'm not a fan of the single Peco big bore single pipe look. You could buy left side M5 backbox for the perfect look Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  8. I would love a high spec late 740i sport Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  9. RIP. Condolences to the family.
  10. Amazing trip. We stayed here http://www.hotel-an-der-nordschleife.de/ Might go again this year after visiting the Frankfurt Motorshow
  11. Yup, Forte is the one
  12. Dont tell me these newer F10/F11s have this E39 vapour barrier problem as well.
  13. Not necessarily.
  14. Not a fan of the looks. Now comes with a traditional torque converter automatic instead of dual clutch gearbox which seems odd. Would rather have the E63 AMGs Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  15. Irish cars have less rust? Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  16. Done mine twice already and the last time was less than a year and a half ago. I am loosing my patience with this now. How much would BMW charge for a job like this or would they tear me a new jobby hole???
  17. Why?
  18. I used the BMW mastic from the dealers. Butyl tape I think it's called Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  19. Yup mouldy leather door card here as well. Don't want to destroy the door card as an extended leather door card will be hard to replace Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  20. Join the club. Done mine in April last year and its goosed again.
  21. Excuses excuses...... Nothing to do with calipers. Perhaps your gash driving last time round? Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  22. Just posted this on cutters: Sorry for the provocative title. My mate has recently bought an E92 M3. Anyway he had it detailed for that spunky wet look as he puts it and we were driving back on the motorway. I was in my E39 M5 and he was driving his so called M3. Messing around doing multiple pulls from approx 50-55mph I was pulling away by multiple car lengths. His car is a manual just like mine. Now I know the M5 has a lot more torque than the M3 but the M3 is lighter and has approx 420bhp vs 400 on the M5, unless a fair few horses have escaped from the M3 engine. I told him to do a live data test on the MAF and plug in to have the codes read. Needless to say he is that disheartened that the M3 will be up for sale soon so he can buy a "mans car" I did say to him as a joke that M3s are for boys. What do you reckon guys? Anyone had a go with an E39 M5 that may be able to shed light on this.
  23. Unfortunately the system has already given in to the ecomentalists. I hope I am wrong but cars like my n/a M5 will be museum pieces within a generation and not in a good way. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  24. You can get a petrol/elec hybrid version with free roadtax and 320bhp
