    Buying an e39 M5.

    I only do about 6k a year, so it would take me over 40 years of motoring to clock up 260,000

    260k in an e39 M5, fair play to you.

    And it's goodbye from him too.

    You did well to drill, and tap cast iron Pidgeonpost.

    Yep, sometimes you just have to go for it, not brilliant in stop/start or commuter traffic, but given an open road there is nothing like an e39 M5. It's motoring nirvana.

    Haynes were excellent guide manuals for the DIY'er, especially before the internet was invented. I still have my oiled stained e12 one, and still just as useful, years later, the current e39 one.

    Buy it Dan, it won't depreciate like your 7.

    Windscreen trim replacement

    Let us know how you get on.

    Windscreen trim replacement

    So originally, would the seal have been fitted to the glass prior to bonding the screen to the car, or fitted after the screen was set into the car?

    Windscreen trim replacement

    Has anyone successfully, and easily replaced their front windscreen trim, or is it a job for the experts? it's not leaking water or anything, just the outermost plastic runner that overlays the glass is very brittle, full of cracks, and looks a bit rubbish.

    Over heating

    So try bleeding the coolent, m30's are a bugger to bleed, so ensure that the coolent is circulating, if not suspect a failed water pump, and no unfortunately you cannot rule out a failed head gasket, or even a cracked cylinder head, for which the m30 engines have a reputation for.

    Over heating

    What engine have you got? mileage? year of the car?

    Over heating

    Coolent needs bleeding?

    Dreaded abs warning light

    Going up through the gears normally, but to muddy the waters further still my car comes with DSC which is a traction control system which utilises the abs control unit. If it plays up permanently, I will be sorely tempted to get a diagnosis at the dealers, and then take it from there.

    The 328i gearbox may be the same model, ZF5HP24, but check that the part numbers on the gearbox Identification plate tally, just to be sure.
