    THE NEW PROJECT... NOT A 5! - 2006 E65 730D

    That looks nice. I love the colour and spec.
  3. I would only use Mackies Transmission Services. Used them quite a few times and can’t recommend them enough.

    Anyone got a bit of love for old Fords?

    Grew up with fords as well, my dad had granada 2.3l estate which we had for years chs713x and then he got a 2.9i ghia x auto in Black 5 door hatch. E444pms which we had for a very long time. Both of the granada’s were 100% reliable and none of them broke down despite several thousand miles being driven in them to France each year. Only Ford I have had was a rare Mondeo 2.0i Ghia x hatch 4x4 in an aubergine colour N196AAR. The paint was pearlescent and when it was clean, it really did look pretty good. Almost like bmw techno violet a little bit. I put quite a few miles on it and it was 100% reliable too. Only got rid in the end as it was parked one night outside my flat in Dennistoun in the east end of Glasgow and was hit head on by a Ned in a stolen Rover 200 really comfy car with switchable suspension that worked, decent stereo, nice seats, cold ac, alloys, headlamp washers, front and rear heated screens etc etc. It was superb in the snow and on very wet motorways, just gripped and gripped. But the 2ltr did struggle with the weight of the car. So it was not exactly what you would call quick

    Calypso 1995 e34 540 on ebay... Mr Calypso.

    Are they viable to be saved or are they quite rusty underneath?

    E39 528i with S-EDC / E39 530d Sport Touring

    Looks a lot better. So does the rear wiper work as it should do now?

    Thinking of a divorce!!

    I really like the Golf R estate. Be interested to hear what you think of it when you get it and have covered a few miles in it.
  10. Front M5 arb’s won’t fit straight 6 engine cars easily due to the difference in shape because of the v8 engine in the m5. But you can get a beefier front arb made by eibach for straight 6 cars. I just left the front as a sport one and fitted the m5 to the rear. It improves the turn in slightly and keeps the rear end a bit more planted. With poly bushes I only fitted those to the arb’s the rest of the bushes were oem but I think quite a few on here have went down the full poly bush route. My Blistein B8 suspension did lower mine slightly more than sport oem height due to the H&R front springs I had fitted. I lowered the rear air suspension using Inpa software to level the ride height. Ride quality was really good with that setup however the front shocks burst after about a year. So swapped the fronts for Monroe (Msport 2) equivalent and they were superb. Cannot recommend them enough. Again quite a few other e39 owners bought those on here.

    Another big fast estate :)

    That looks nice Scott. What’s the mileage on it? Like the 2.5 saloon as well.
  12. Looks a nice e39 touring. It shouldn’t thud over bumps however so sounds like rear sub frame bushes. When I did them on my old touring i went for the slightly updated ones and combined with the bilstien b8 suspension I fitted it was a perfect match. Firm but compliant. I also upgraded the rear ARB to an M5 along with poly bushes and new ARB drop links etc. Again a very nice upgrade for tourings as well.

    Typical (?) E39 diesel post purchase repairs.

    Good to hear it’s going well! I miss mine and would definitely have another one.
