    BBS LM 19" REPS ON M5 - NO LONGER AVAILABLE ?

    Hi Dennis, Good to hear from you. My reps are being refurbished by Lepsons as we speak. I got a set of CSL reps from CM wheels for my E46 M3 which were pretty good. It was the offset which worried me but you have gave a solution now. I would love to have a set of genuine LM's but the 4k price is simply not justified on UK roads but a used set at around £2000 would be so if you could let me know if you find some (wont hold my breath lol). I am having the centres painted in a light anthracite and lips polished but unlaquered. I have even found some new 'bolts' to finish them off. Ah that plate always makes me smile. The car now runs an 'M5' plate. I hope to catch up with you at some point and keep an eye out for genuine ones. Will post pics when the wheels are done.

    BBS LM 19" REPS ON M5 - NO LONGER AVAILABLE ?

    Just surprised that they cant be purchased anymore thats all.
  6. I was shocked to be told by BM Autosport this week that they wont be selling the 19" LM reps for months. I am currently having my reps refurbished at Lepsons but longer term what other options are there ? I wont go back to 18's due to the BBK. 1 - Find some genuine BBS LM's with the correct E39 fitment. This is almost impossible and even if I did find some we are looking at £1000 a corner I guess. 2 - Try a different style. Trouble is the LM's are bloody perfect. Maybe CSL reps but are they available in the E39 fitment. 3 - Go to 20's with the LM reps but how will they affect the handling and ride. Never seen a pic of 20" LM's on an E39.
  7. Hi guys, I just wondered if this is still usable with my E39 M5 ? I dont have any software disc (long since lost) and I run a MacBook Pro. Russ

    BMW E39 M5 Rod Bearing & Chain Guides

    I had my rod bearings changed at around 125k as part of my Evolve tuning and they were well worn. The vanos is still silent even at 150k so I doubt I will mess with it.

    Intraveee to KCA lead faulty ?

    I have Been periodically losing the Intravee connection and now it is completely missing - no charging of the iPod or anything. Am I right in thinking it’s the main connecting lead between the 2 units that’s most likely faulty and if so where can I get a replacement ?
