    F10 LCI 530d MSport.F15 X5, E46M3
  1. Interesting. What car have you and is it LCI? I believe there's 2 different front calipers designs, one (earlier?) that is tapered that accommodates the 20" M5 wheel.
  2. It's indeed 7l. It needed a big more to bring it to max.
  3. Big shout, do you have 20in avant garde wheels, (OEM m5?) on yours?
  4. Agree with this. I had this done with my old E39530d , subtle mod rather than the down turned OEM. Easy for an exhaust shop and they will have several deigns to choose from.
  5. It 'took' a bit under 7l- bloody iPad predictive text.....
  6. Just did mine today. It good a bit under 7 litres which accounts for any bit left over that mightn't have drained. I put 6.5 litres in and progressively top up from there checking dipstick ( allowing level to settle). I'll check tomorrow and then when warm and see if it needs a few more mls. By the way bought my LL04 castrol from Opie oiled, delivered to my door at a significant saving over even the keenest motor factors.
  7. Wondering if anyone on here owns this E39 M5 or if anyone has viewed it or has an informed opinion on it? Ta.https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/bmw/m5/2002-bmw-5-series-e39-m5-bmw-warranty-engine-replaced-engine-only-has-56k-miles-on-it/5970907
  8. 535iAR and Matthew- thanks guys. Helpful info - cheers and thanks!
  9. Hi, i do most maintenance myself like replacing brake pads, but need a diagnostic tool to reset the fault light on the dash afterwards. Need the tool to be able to wind back the rear caliper pistons also for the F10 & F15 with the electronic handbrake. Any recommendations? Cheers, thanks
  10. Just noticed an E36 convertible as my avatar photo... How the hell this that happen. Whatever about E36s , I don't like convertibles. Must change it.....
  11. Was looking forward to seeing the photos, sounds like a really special example
  12. Cheers for the updates and the detail - that's useful! Did you do anything on brakes or suspension....?
  13. I've been in touch with Simon and I'd be in north Wales/Chester area.......coming over from Dublin. Maybe we can hook up or he can work out a route to do a few cars ( I recall he did this a few years back, I had a 2003 E39 530d MSport for 8 years, brilliant car. )
  14. Hi, it's coming up to new brakes time on my 530d LCI. Thinking of upgrading to 535d discs. Does anyone know the diameter of 535d discs vs 530d LCI discs? I'd need the new calipers carriers if disc is larger....anything else. .? Also has anyone tried different brake pads and any results? thinking of EMaps remap so upping braking power slightly if I have to invest in discs anyway.... thanks
  15. Well, I mentioned chassis upgrades I wasn't thinking comfort, more handling. Someone on here replaced wheels with OEM M5 and non RFT reducing unsprung weight with good results. Maybe a stiffer set of shocks when needed and what brake pads work well. And a remap .... Seems like not May folks have modded F10s. Regards the F07, I don't know anything about them really, and it'll stay that way because I just don't like the look of them ... Kind of nondescript design that's 'in between' In my opinion, but each to their own. Thanks for the constructive comments above.
