    540 starter motor

    Good evening all, I’m contemplating replacing my own starter motor on my ‘99 540i. Just wondering if anyone has done this and any advice would be welcome. Autodata gives a time of approx. 2 hours, I’ve been told but I believe they state that the inlet manifold has to be removed, not sure that sounds right to me. To be honest, I’m struggling to even see the starter from under the bonnet lol

    540 rear silencer removal

    Thanks Mosuke, so you’ve removed the whole rear section is that right? and there’s no horrible droning noise at a constant speed?

    540 rear silencer removal

    I’ve seen the pics of yours, looks in amazing condition and a credit to you. I’ve seen some of these silencer deletes removing the whole rear section, would you recommend against that? My car has no visible exhaust tail pipe (not a sport bumper) - nothing against yours but I do like the stealth look

    Thanks very much for your replies, much appreciated I’ll probably end up doing the back box removal

    540 rear silencer removal

    Hi all, I’m finding the exhaust note on my 540i a bit too “refined” for my tastes. I’d like the hear the V8 sound a little more. I’ve watched many rear “muffler delete” videos on YouTube so I know it’s an easy mod to do but it’s difficult to asses how loud the exhaust will be afterwards. I was hoping some people on the forum may have done this themselves and may be able to give further advice. I just don’t want the car to be too loud but I’m also yearning for that V8 to be heard a little.

    V8 Misfire

    Ok cheers, fingers crossed that’s my fault. My next question is where’s the best place to get the gaskets from & is it best to get the full set of cam cover gaskets?

    The plug wells definitely have oil which is making its way up inside the rubber ignition coil extensions which fit between the plugs & coils - would this be likely to cause intermittent misfires?

    V8 Misfire

    A common problem that one I guess?

    V8 Misfire

    Thanks very much for your replies Ive not done anything other than check the fault codes but it’s an intermittent fault at the minute. Its a low mileage car & the misfire is worse from cold and disappears when warmed up

    E39 Horns

    Hi all, first off I just want to say how great it is to be back with an E39 after a few years without one ;-)) I’m just wondering if anyone here knows where the horns are fitted on a ‘99 540 - mine are inop. but also got issues with cruise control being inop. I want to check for lives/earth at the horns but also wondering if there’s any known issues with steering wheel contact rings that could link the faults? Any advice would be most appreciated
