  1. Probably includes price it cost an owner second hand from a dealer
  2. Bang on a 530i inlet manifold and Bobs your mom's lover. 210bhp.

    Alpina B10 V8 Touring

    A simple trick to improving a grey on grey E39 is to swap the carpet out for a black one. Looks great

    Alpina B10 V8 Touring

    I was expecting to scroll down and see a sale price of £15 Billion, so was pleasantly surprised to see something more reasonable.
  5. When I took the PDCs off for painting I pulled away the holder from the bumper. It left the circular sticky pad (pictured) behind which has now lost its stickyness. Best sealant, glue etc to reattach? Needs to be waterproof etc.

    Diesel 11p a litre more than petrol

    17p a litre difference! Disgusting That's a £10 difference if filling up a 60 litre tank.

    E39, when to call it a day?

    Yeah and there was that wheel wobble that turned out to be a bent alloy....

    E60 Sport on Spiders is still one of the best looking BMWs ever made IMO

    N47 timing chain

    I have the same noise with my 520d n47. Smooth and quiet on the motorway, sounds like spoons in a can at idle.

    I'd say its a lottery with the E61s, mine was bought with 138,000 on the clock, now is on 156,000 and runs fine, will be looking for 200,000 from it, fingers crossed
  13. As someone who grew up with the joy that was vinyl and Compact Cassettes, I've never liked CDs. Crap cases, easily scratched, hard to store. Never really been a fan of ipods etc, plus hate listening to music in MP3. Re. Phones, it's a hassle finding free music and then doing something on a laptop to then stick it onto your phone, then having to go into apps etc to get them to play. But I've always been a huge fan of Minidiscs. High quality digital audio, recorded direct from a hifi. No compression. Very convenient, easy to store, very robust. I want to swap out my OEM CD changer in the E61 for a minidisc changer like this https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F233029192320 How easy/hard/impossible will it be?
