    E39 M5 Front and Rear Struts Replacement

    James, I picked up M5 shocks from ECP, I triple checked with BMW / Sachs and ECP and they are certainly M5 shocks, most notably the weight of the shocks are a dead give away (they are made of aluminium) as well as the part numbers which cross check with the OEM parts (see my thread for confirmation)

    E39 M5 Front and Rear Struts Replacement

    Nice work! I managed to get the last set of Sachs M5 shocks from ECP .. they were Defo M5 ones as I cross checked with the dealers... Can't wait to fit mine now! Bet you are glad you stuck with OEM ?
  3. nice!! love that colour!

    Carbon Black ///M5

    A few minor updates: had a new windscreen fitted as it still had its original screen and there was loads of stone chips which was annoying me!! replacement was Pilkington and OEM replacement with the climate feature. Cleaned and polished the glass and applied a few layers of Autobrite direct "Hell Shine - Ghost Rider" which repels water very well! Here is HellShine Ghost Rider in action! Stipped the rear offside door to see why the door refused to open from the outside, discovered I need a new handle and cable.. purchased the cable from the stealers and I managed to find the handle in carbon black on ebay.de fitted my new mats Also got Chapman Detailing over to refurbish the dashboard as it was showing signs of wear and tear ! its safe to say the interior looks factory fresh! Love the F10 gearknob, the throw /weight feels spot on! Some random pics after a long drive and wash! Plans for the coming months: Send the brakes off to be overhauled fit the new OEM discs / Ferodo DS2500 pads refurbish the wheels and fit the new OEM decals / centre caps / wheel bolts fit the new suspension (OEM)

    New wheels finally on.

    Looks spot on!!
  6. Hi all, My M5 interior looks practically brand new after an overhaul apart from the titanium trim which has some scratches and minor dents (not visible in the pic) Has anyone managed to find a wrap similar to the OEM titanum finish?

    Bluetooth / ULF compatibility list?

    Hi, does anyone know which BMW ULF unit will work with a Samsung S8? I know V13 works fine but anyone had joy with earlier units? Could do with having bluetooth in my E39!!

    Carbon Black ///M5

    Guys, you will be shocked to hear that Amazon had the pads priced up at a bargain price of £114.83 (P/N FCP997H) i have been hunting them down for months, they retail at around £200, some resellers have them at around £170 but when i saw them priced at £114.83 from amazon i snapped them up (prime delivery too!) they were the last ones in stock too! I know, very jammy!!

    Carbon Black ///M5

    James, thanks for the encouragement, They are defo 100% M5 shocks..working in the trade, i got my guy at Euro Car Parts to check stock. I ensured the OEM part number matched: 31312229612 x2 (front) Sachs PN 556834 33521091922 (rear) Sachs PN 170857 also pretty sure (not certain!) that M5 shocks are silver and aluminium compared to 540i etc which are black and heavier.. I agree, the ds2500 pads will make a massive difference as well as the rebuilt calipers. I need to shop for some SS lines. Hopefully removing the calipers this weekend!
