    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    First decent run in the 540 today, a 263 mile return trip to Bath. Effortless mile muncher, very impressed. Also pleased with the 28mpg average overall. M3/A303 sat at around 80 where I could, with the return journey significantly quicker in places.

    Not done the transfer yet. Need to prep and spray the front plate OEM plinth first. Will sort it in the next couple of weeks.

    A day out a the Bromley Pageant today. A bit grey but the rain held off. Good to catch up again with a few forum members too.

    6 or 8 that is the question

    For the best "all rounder" in an E39, I would say go for the 3 litre petrol straight six. Silky smooth and still recognised as one of the best engines that BMW put into one of their cars. I did have a 6, but now an 8, however that's another story.

    Picked up an OEM front plate holder from my local Vines to replace the significantly crappy and generic (as I soon discovered after unpacking it) holder which I had purchased via Amazon . The plate is currently just screwed to the bumper. Love the fact that the OEM one has locating hooks that clip into slots under the bumper so that the bumper can be drilled for the holder making it level and central. And it seals nicely around the top and sides. Will fit it on a couple of weeks when the registration is changed. By the way, being a plain grey plastic currently, can i spray it with Plasticote? Found a half full can of silver in the garage but the blurb doesn't mention suitable for plastic!
