  1. What Water Pump, Viscous Fan & Thermostat???

    Have a watch of my electric fan fitment video. It's for an M5, but the principle is the same on all other E39's https://youtu.be/gLRR5TKSr0U
  2. Sunroofs. Does yours whistle a little bit?

    All 4 seals when I did all them in the video came to about £95 with trade discount, without digging the invoice out, it was something along the lines of £25ish for the sunroof seal
  3. What Water Pump, Viscous Fan & Thermostat???

    Simon at C3BMW is superb - I ordered a brand new OEM BEHR radiator for the M5 from him (but shipped directly from Hella/BEHR), it turned up damaged defective - twisted like a banana over the core by about an inch Spoke to him over the phone and without any issue at all had a brand new one dispatched for next day delivery and then had the defective one collected too. That's the sort of service I like, and it's what will keep my custom too. For the "It must be BMW only radiator purists" - the BMW roundel had been clearly ground off, but the rest of the BMW part numbers were in place.
  4. Sunroofs. Does yours whistle a little bit?

    I noticed this on my M5 - it is the flocked/rubber seal around the sunroof hole that has degraded and shrunk, you'll probably find a small gap where the join is towards the rear of the sunroof. Have a look at how to change it in this handy video:
  5. That took a while! Were they being arsey about it?
  6. Short shift gear lever - How To guide!

    Cheers gents
  7. In the latest of my series of videos with my dullest tones possible, we fit a short shift gear lever kit using all BMW parts. Enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1e9e0j33hPo&t=19s
  8. E39 M5 vanos oil line banjo bolt washers

    If they are copper, then just resoften them by heating to cherry red with a blow lamp and letting them cool naturally. Unless they are damaged, then you need the following part numbers: 07119963072 and 07119963129
  9. Did you get any joy from them?
  10. Engine oil getting too hot? Power steering fluid boiling over? You need to fit some cooling! Grab yourself a coffee and spend the next 20 minutes learning how to fit yourself an engine oil cooler to your E39 M5 and also how to upgrade the power steering cooling system too (whilst increasing it's fluid capacity!)
  11. Wanting to fit an induction kit to your E39 M5? How about doing an Intake Air Temperature Sensor relocation too to elimate that common problem of heat soak causing ignition retardation after periods of heavy traffic and idling? Look no further - 10 minutes in this video tells you all you need to know!
  12. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Not much - Fitted a brand new BMW radiator, upgraded to an oil cooler system, fitted a PAS cooler too. Not much
  13. I bought mine from UK Performance in Manchester. It'd probably be alright for the 6cyl people as their radiators are only 32mm cores and the direnza one is 42mm.
  14. What you might think is a waste of time is an extra discusion point and one of those "Well I've done this........." moments - Just a shame they're not easily seen once fitted
  15. It's obvious once you have removed the pollen filter housing. No need to remove the dashboard, only the trim piece above the pedals then you have access to what you need - 10 minutes at most.
