  1. My M5 Project

    Just thought I would update my post as it's been a while.. Car is now getting near 220K and I've started getting the shake from the Control arms again (due another change I believe it was about 90k ago I did them last). So purchased a couple of replacements and as I went to jack up the car I felt the jacking point crush in slightly.. Oh no, the dreaded jacking point rust.. Removed all the covers and it was a complete mess, rear jacking points completely rushed through had spread right up the car and the fronts where quite bad too so booked the car into a local garage to have it repaired.. Initial quote was £800 but after full inspection they realised it was a huge job and increased my price to £1700 yikes.. Will report back with some photo's once done.. What was more annoying was I sold my runaround a couple of weeks ago (the 745i) so it's left me completely car less. I've been eyeing up Cayenne Turbos lately, they seemed to be a good buy with lots of space, fast and great for my daily driver as I do lots of motorways and A roads and I don't have to worry about potholes and speed bumps + I've always wanted to own a SUV and the X5 just wasn't cutting it in terms of interior quality and speed. So picked this up and I must say i'm hugely impressed.. It's seriously quick for it's size, I outdragged an M3 the other day.. It's on 54k miles and has loads of added extras like the Panoramic roof which is great in this weather, it's almost a convertible is so big haha
  2. Newbie...love new 530d

    Good to see you made it onto the forums finally.. See you next weekend to do your gearbox, swearls etc etc.. Pleased I finally talked you into selling your bloody proton and got you into a decent car..
  3. E65 745i Gaskets please

    Yeh luckily I still have the M5 to get me around or it would be a right pain.. It's probably the most tricky task I've had to perform to date but I think it will be more a case of taking my time and labelling / taking pictures as I remove stuff.. After all this work it's a shame I'll have to sell the car but unfortunately one of the BMW's has to go for the sake of the new house and the M5 isn't up for negotiation haha.. The only bit I need to read up on is the removal/installation of the valvetronic unit, some have said just twist it out and other say it needs to be re calibrated.. I have DIS / SSS software so will probably go the calibration route if that is what's best but if anyone has any insight into this it would be greatly appreciated..
  4. E65 745i Gaskets please

    Hi Phil Thanks for coming back to me so quickly, it was quite a big list of parts to work out so it's easily done + it's a great excuse to put this pig of a job of for another few days haha.. The money have been send to your paypal, Thanks again James
  5. E65 745i Gaskets please

    Hi Phil I got the parts through today for the leaky timing cover, thanks for sending them out so quickly, however I appear to be missing the timing cover gaskets themselves, looks like I have just about everything else except them.. Look forward to hearing from you James
  6. E65 745i Gaskets please

    Yes I am going to be DIYing it, I'll make a post about it to hopefully help others.. Looks like the valve covers will be much easier to work on if I remove the E-Box, cabin filters and water tank. Going to be doing both sides when I'm in there, may as well... Valve Stems are fine luckily, no smoke at all but mine is only low miles (86000).. Will be selling the car when it's done as we're buying a house so hoping to get the work done this week..
  7. E65 745i Gaskets please

    Hi Phil Thanks for coming back to me, I've just sent payment via paypal. I've just realised it didn't ask for my address but it's the same as the registered card address, not sure if that comes up for you but if not I will send you a PM right now with my full address. Thanks again James
  8. E65 745i Gaskets please

    Hi There After having a great service from you guys last time I wanted to order some more bits and bobs from you please. I have a 745i (2003) with a terrible oil leak that I believe it coming from the timing Covers, I'm looking for basically the timing cover gaskets, valve cover gaskets and any other bits and bobs I need to do the job (I believe that includes spark plug tubes, and a couple of o rings for various sensors a washer for the valvetronic motor but there may be a couple of stuff I'm missing which you might think need to be included) Thanks for your help, am ready to order ASAP so looking forward to hearing back from you Kind Regards James

  10. Slow motion camera's

    haha..not quite that exciting..
  11. Slow motion camera's

    Does anyone have an experience with Slow Motion Camera's or able to recommend one, looking for one with at least 480fps? Me and the Mrs are launching a new product and we've been looking at buying a slow motion camera (we're building a website with video backgrounds), so just looking for any experience with any, or if anyone happens to know a product photographer/videographer we might consider just employing someone with the equipment.. Cheers in advance James
  12. Disgusting colour has now gone

    Played around a lot with plasti dip over the past few years, sorry buddy but you WILL regret it one day.. Looks okayish at first but as its a rough/bumpy finish it's a pain to keep clean and doesn't wear anywhere near as well as people claim, I bet up close there's lots of little imperfections too, it's too thick to spray perfectly flat... Then worst of all is removing the damn stuff, yes it comes of easily if peeled off after a week but try removing it in a year and it won't be easy. IMO Plasti dip has it's uses i.e trims etc.. That being said it's a £500 car so no harm done really as long as you like it dude..

  14. e65 745i

    I've recently acquired a 745i as my daily driver and so far I've been pretty impressed with it. Just one issue that's really bugging me, when I turn the volume up the sound distorts. It sounds really nice then becomes very ddistorted as you turn the volume up. It's not got logic 7 as it's 2003.. any ideas where to start? Cheers James
