  1. I've had a Volvo S60 D5 2006 for nearly 5 years. It's a manual and has been a great car, touch wood! I bought an e39 530i a year ago with the intention to sell the Volvo but I just can't bring myself to part with it. It's not worth much now, probably about £1,500. It's economical, comfy, quick and reliable. Now done 125k miles which is nothing for a D5! I'd be tempted to keep your current V70, if the gearbox does fail one day then just sell it as spares or repairs...still with a few quid as people want the D5 engine! I'm on the Volvo forum, a guy on there has recently purchased a 2003 V70 D5 auto with 625k miles on the clock!! Only had one recon box in that time.
  2. Hi, is it for the facelift and how much?
  3. That sounds nice, bet they'll want top dollar for it!
  4. I have a a towbar for my 2001 saloon but needing the electrics. Does anyone know if the electrics for the touring and saloon are the same?
  5. Mines booked in at bmw Harrogate next Wednesday.
  6. Photo 6 shows the door card with the memory switch for the seats, this door card is for the off side so looks like it is a RHD car.
  7. How can you tell they are not heated?
  8. Thanks for the replies, wish I could find some for £100 ! I thought they might be from a LHD so messaged the seller and they are from a RHD. There are also a set of very nice M5 black and grey seats on eBay but they are £1,000.
  9. Hi all, Just seen these on eBay, contour front seats, rear seats, door cards etc. Seller wants £600. Worth the money? http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E39-5-Series-CONTOUR-SEATS-AND-DOOR-CARDS-/192203209132?hash=item2cc03439ac%3Ag%3AmfUAAOSwGJlZIWcs&_trkparms=pageci%3Ac99122ae-4a3a-11e7-b0fd-74dbd180cd51%7Cparentrq%3A7a48a76215c0a9c99ff91202fffb71fe%7Ciid%3A1
  10. Thanks for replies. Probably move onto 18" eventually but will make do with these for now. Fitting sport bumpers next.
  11. Changed the 16" turbine wheels for style 66 17" wheels. Non staggered so probably fit 20mm spacers on rears. Also needs lowering! Now wondering whether I should have gone 18", reason I didn't was because I didn't want the ride to be too harsh. Would it have made any noticeable difference?
  12. Just found mine, it was hidden by all the political leaflets!!
  13. Which years/models are affected?
  14. That looks very nice, good options list too. If you keep the miles low it could be an appreciating asset, rather than buying a different car and suffering the cost of depreciation. Difficult to value, if it was a 530i would be a lot easier as a lot more about but good 540i's seem to be thin on the ground. I would say it has to be worth over £4k but I could be wrong!
  15. Mot til November as well. Cheap motoring!
