    E39 M5
  1. E39 M5 vanos oil line banjo bolt washers

    Jon you're looking at the wrong diagram thats why it doesnt show any up, you need this one http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=DE92-EUR-06-1999-E39-BMW-M5&diagId=11_2699 If you look at the options you have when looking at the diagram its most likely you originally looked at the one thats for a car with the different vanos accumulator to what you have and so realoem won't list any parts on that diagram HTH
  2. M5 MAF test a tad low

    As said by Kumaran, they're pretty good, your trims are altered by 6% on each bank so nicely within tolerance
  3. Jamie's E39 M5.

    Hi Dennis, thanks for the words. The fabric is still holding up nicely, its not lifted from anywhere and has lasted a few years so im still happy with it. I need to update with a small ICE update, I've removed the ski hatch but have yet to install the front components so will do so when that's sorted. I did dynamatt the boot space and got about 50% ish coverage so plenty for the diminishing returns I'd get with 100% coverage
  4. Jamie's E39 M5.

    WIthout an update for a while i've simply been enjoying the car. Projects as above are still ongoing or on hold but i did fit a methanol injection kit and remapped for it, in the search for a little more power but most of all consistent power. I wanted the install in the boot but in light of my amps etc living under a false floor, i didn't really want to mount the pump under them and risk a headache in case future access was needed. This meant a rethink on the audio front which happened at the same time, and so dragged the install on a little longer. So out with the amps and a tidy up was in order, starting with losing any unwanted loom, tidying joints etc and wrapping all looms in tesa tape for a neat OE look Then strip the boot down to find where to run the meth line. I opted for inside the car using a PTFE braided line and AN fittings Drivers seat was moved to aid the fitting down the side of the car and into the bay, through the brake servo wiring grommet. Then follow the OE loom across the rear of the engine and around to the intake area I made an aluminium bung tapped to accept the meth nozzle and fitted it to the silicone coupler. This meant i didnt have to ruin the CF discharge pipe unseen work is tapping into the BOV vacuum source to feed the meth controller inside the car Then upload the new map And fit the tell tale pump active LED In the rear of the car i fitted the tank in the "spare wheel well" I had a plate made and fitted the pump and tank to that to have a nice clean install You can see tne shelf the amps live on under the rear deck too And with the OE boot cover fitted,all looks standard
  5. M5 MAF test a tad low

    Vanos rattle is very susceptible at low rpms and IMO if its something thats eliminated by about 100rpm i'd say its likely no more than that and nothing to worry about
  6. M5 MAF test a tad low

    As above. I would have a vanos test redone after fitting of the CPS as even cars that do not throw codes with old sensors do fall foul of the vanos test. As you say its a very precise test and lazy or old ones will mean the difference between a pass and a fail
  7. Front disc rotors

    Nothing wrong with it at all mate, just thought to ask in case some who particularly want OE euro spec get them and end up with something they were not expecting is all, or if they turned out to be floaters then its a cracking price for people
  8. Front disc rotors

    Are they floating discs? sounds like these will be single piece
  9. M5 MAF test a tad low

    See if it passes the vanos test with a slightly raised idle, i.e operator giving some gas to elevate rpms to 1250 or so. If it does i wouldn't worry about it. Do you have the results at all? Although the test stops at the point of failure which is a bit of a pain, often it can point towards the likely cause. How old are your cam sensors?
  10. £20 "radioworld" baffles vs 12V baffles E39.

    Hi Dennis, thanks again for the reply. I have the sub now firing via its ports into the cabin in the way you describe. I dont really want to swap out the infinitys to the front for 2 reasons really. 1 is they dont really have a very good bass response, i used them in my old e36 and had 2 sets with a 6.5" set up front but i wasn't massively blown away by them TBH. Secondly the tweeter is mounted into the OE rear pod and it would mean getting another set of used pods which i can't really be doing with for the gain i'll see if any which i don't think i will. As for amps, given i'm running those speakers and my subs are twin 10", an old Vibe AC10 twin box, do you have any recommendations for either a 5/6 channel that can run 2 subs or perhaps 2 seperate amps? Bear in mind i dont want to go mad but something smaller, lighter and more efficient for the right money would always be welcome as the car ever evolves Cheers dude!
  11. Brake fluid low light on

    Are you sure its not the wire from your handbrake that's the issue?
  12. £20 "radioworld" baffles vs 12V baffles E39.

    Cheers Dennis. I hear you with the amp mount, that's the reason behind the shelf as opposed to simply attaching them to the rear deck upside down. I'm running an older AC10 twin bandpass box with some infnity reference 5.25 components in the rear deck in original pods with the tweeter mounted also in the pod so in effect they act more like a coax just for rear fill, and the vibes upfront. Given I'm using 2 amps now, a rather large V12 4 channel bridged to 2 channel mono for the subs and a slightly smaller v12 for the 4 remaining speakers, what would you recommend as a more up to date solution should funds allow. Bear in mind I don't want to go silly, as the car is simply a toy now and I don't need to extract every last bit of boot space from in, nor is the amplification powering a top notch SQ build? Cheers
  13. £20 "radioworld" baffles vs 12V baffles E39.

    Thanks for the lengthy reply Dennis. I've bought some modest vibe 6.5's and because of the low outlay I've bought the radioworld baffles. If for some reason they don't fit the bill I have the template for the 12V style baffles here. I wont be going mad with birch ply, MDF will be plenty for me should I go that route. They'll be powered by a decent old school Alpine V12 amp as per the OE ones are now. I've already deadened the boot but have gone for about 30% coverage as I believe theres a limit of diminishing returns at 25% coverage onwards and I'm not going to be after an unbelievable system . I've opened up the ski hatch and am going to be fixing the box so the ports fire into the car via this route. This has all come about through installing my meth kit truth be told, the existing audio lived under a false boot floor and I want to mount the tank and pump there now, so overhauling the audio seemed fairly logical at the same time. The amps will now reside on a shelf that sits about 80mm below the existing parcel shelf. If you've any other ideas feel free to shout them at me!!
  14. Turbines on E39 M5

    Youve got a set of turbines si why not trry and bang one on the back?
  15. Nissan 350Z

    Really? I stand corrected. Don't really know an awful lot about them (clearly!) but a mate of mine had a Clio V6 and it was he who told me it was a Nissan Engine same as the 350Z.
