    535se finally back on the road

    Looks superb. Must drive pretty nice now too.

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

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

    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.
  5. 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.
  7. 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.
  11. Ah the Port, such a lovely place that is ridiculous he got off with it though......... also the Police behaviour in unmarked car sounds odd as well.
  12. That is an amazing difference. Must make it feel like a new e39 now.

    New E39 owner. 523i SE Touring

    Welcome to the forum! Good find on the e39 Touring. Not many left in that condition now.

    E61 525i 2004 Newbie.

    That does sound quite thirsty? Should’ve been able get about another 70-80miles more out of £40 of fuel.

    That looks a really nice e39 sport touring and very tidy for the miles. GLWS
