    Coming Soon for E39 owners

    The design Dennis has shown looks to be flush with the dash (something that I’m sure is high on the list of the OEM look priorities). Thus, the space behind is going to be as big as BMW originally provided which is not suitable for standard or deep size units with optical drive mechs. The Alpine and Parrot units pictured are shallow depth/mechless and fit perfectly. @DennisCooper any news on availablity?

    Damn, that makes me even sadder :( GLWS

    I agree with duncan; as stock as it can be will give the best chance of a sale (especially as everyone's now pointing out future classic potential [which remains to be seen]). I almost did bite and see if an M5 could be for me :)

    E39 530d manual, Revs randomly capping on motorway

    Sadly any supplier can sell a dud; after all they're just shifting product from supplier to customer. They will not have even opened the box. Good to hear the care is once more on the road.

    Forgive me for being blunt but a ballpark figure was sought and all you gave was excuses as to why it will be expensive without providing an answer. Personally I’d have thought an answer of “still being worked on” would have been better

    If you haven't realised what Dennis has worked on, it is a double DIN adapter with "fake" buttons. The fact he's currently running an Alpine unit is not really relevant; the first shot used a Parrot unit too. It's purpose is to maintain OEM looks when fitting a after after-market head unit.

    Looks great. Will keep an eye on future updates!

    For anyone that cares....

    It's good in that there's very little bullshit though it feels a little awkward with the owner.

    Garage Workbench

    Where I last lived I made mine out of a couple of old pallets (I built an extension so had a few lying around after work was complete) and some 4" bolts. It worked out pretty cheap and I got the exact size/design for the space available.

    HEADLIGHT BULBS - RECOMMENDATIONS ?

    The review was from a car mag (Evo I think it was). They measured spot intensity, throw and some other stuff I can't recall and the GE units beat all others. Each to their own as far as I'm concerned as we seem hell bent on blinding fellow road users in the pursuit of improving ones own vision

    HEADLIGHT BULBS - RECOMMENDATIONS ?

    MOT rules have been tightened up as of this month I believe. These were rated very highly recently - GE Megalight Ultra H7 +130% Light Car Headlight Bulbs (Twin) 58520XNU https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XRP45DX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_

    E39 M5 market

    I didn't mean to offend. I just gave you my honest opinion based on the photos alone (specifically the wheel shows wear on the right hand edge, the handbrake lever being wooden, the mats don't look cleaned/prepped for sale and the scratching around the light switch are the items that I considered lowered the finish level to where I said the "few interior bits" put me off. Of course it's an old car and it will show battle cars. A few years back [when I should have bought an M5] they could e had for £6/7K in better condition with much more palatable mileages. Of course the market is different now GLWS nonetheless.
  14. My take on it is that the E39 is not really a car that's worth an investment of £1200 on a bespoke head unit. Spending that much on better quality/brand kit that can be moved (head unit/amp as opposed to speakers/enclosures) to the next car makes some sense of course. Sadly the double din fascia adapters are either poor and/or expensive!

    Microsoft mess up Hotmail - Again

    It's got nothing to do with Windows (7 or otherwise) it's the browser you're using to access the web site. I'm assuming you're using IE by virtue of "compatibility view"? I use Firefox as my main browser although I've not noticed any issues with IE11 [on Windows 7/10] either.
