    My old Alpina B10 4.8 V8S

    Silver trim is not too bad, but interior wooden trim inserts on a HP e39 is a no, no. Mazi is right the M5 is the full fat icon, the e39 Alpina while very good, is a half way house.

    One of the problems is that after Holland, I think, the UK has the highest population density of all EU countries, and as such there is less room, and more congestion on our motorway. A lot of the French and German motorways are still 2 lane, go figure. We are now even robbing a lot of hard shoulder safety/breakdown lanes M6, M25, to create 4 lane motorways.

    correct lubricant 518i manual steering box

    AFAIK, 518i didn't come with PAS.

    Lovely E39 528i

    Does look a cracking e39, but a marmite colour, and interior though.

    528i manual, EBay?

    So any idea what happened then!

    528i manual, EBay?

    I put it on my watching list, then it disappeared, so maybe the seller pulled it off at the last minute?

    528i manual, EBay?

    Does anyone know what happened to the 528i se e28 manual transmission, that was advertised on Ebay, couple of days ago, I was watching it but now it has disappeared, it was rough, needing a fair few jobs doing on it, but it was the desirable manual gearboxed car, most of them were automatics. Anyone on here got it?

    Transmission Oil/Filter change. Help Please.

    I just asked to be given the old filter when I had mine done, it had a date on the filter that tallied with the build date of the car, in other words it was the original transmission filter. Isn't the oil pan replaced as well on an F10 fluid change?

    It’s been a while....

    Brilliant exterior colour, I also, less kean on the blue two tone seats, and trim. The black and grey seats are ok, but not the black and blue, and unfortunately not so easy to swap out, seats being unique to the M5. Yes, you do need one in your life Duncan.

    E39, when to call it a day?

    ^^^ Newer, is not always better. Enjoy keeping your e39 going, not for nothing was it voted car of the year, 4 years running by numerous motoring publications, when the model was current.

    how to top up the automatic gearbox oil?

    I could never comprehend checking the oil at a certain temperature, the viscosity of the oil will change as it heats up, the change in volume will be negligible.

    Billy Monger

    I've just watched the Billy Monger programme on BBC2, about a 17 year old racing driver needing a double amputation on his legs after a very bad racing accident, to come back and race again in F4 11 months later. What utterly fantastic spirit in one so young.

    F10 530d, Good or Bad

    I'm not too bothered about the toys Andrew, as long as it drives well, automatic, good colour, and a wide screen sat nav, will all make it much easier to sell on when the time comes.
