  1. Anyone know what the OEM manufacturers are for; Radiator Expansion Tank Thermostat Water Pump Thanks
  2. I think it's come time to start thinking about a new car. The E39 will become the weekend/project so won't be going anywhere. I've been into BMW and had a good look around the 3 below but can't come to a final decision, just after people recommendations, thoughts and opinions. It'll be my car but needs to accommodate the wife a 2 small people.
  3. Thank you for the responses guys. I had 'help' last time and can't remember cleaning the dipstick tube so would assume it didn't happen. Thank you for the advice re the part, it's that age old decision of dealer/no-dealer! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I've the the Intravee fitted into the car so really helpful with the status screen. It gives a maximum temp and current temp for the journey. Varies between 92-99 degrees. I always seem to get a high (97/98/99) then I'm guessing the thermostat opens fully and keeps it around the 95 mark Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Just curious what coolant temperatures people are getting, What's considered normal and what's considered high for the 3.0 M54? I know the gauge is heavily damped to stop people over worrying but curious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Poorboys Super Slick & Suds for me, they've released a snow foam now so will try that when I can get hold of some
  7. Just an update on this. Ran the car a lot longer than 'normal' and the smoke seemed to subside for a week or so, back with a vengeance now. Far more prominent in the evenings than first thing. Also, shut off at the petrol station today, restarted 5 minutes later a big cloud again. Looks like I'll be doing the CCV next weekend (along with the oil filter housing gasket) so 'hopefully' this does end up being the problem and nothing more sinister is happening!!
  8. Yeah sorry, WX52 OKG
  9. Hi, How much would a CCV set up be please? The unit, associated pipes and O rings, Thank you
  10. Have a look at Gyeon Rim coat. It's specifically for wheels. I had mine refurbished last summer and applied it, still going strong now. If not then I'd second the Poorboys comment above.
  11. Thanks, What recalls are due?
  12. Just looking for a price for;Front Brake DiscsFront PadsRear Brake DiscsRear PadsFront & Rear Caliper Retention SpringsRegistration is WX52 OKG, You couldn't check to see if that's due the airbag recall too could you please?Thank you
  13. That's what I found. Was looking at Euro car parts earlier and it would seem BMW are cheaper even with ECP having 30% discount! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. What is the standard BMW make for the front & rear discs and pads? I'll be tackling replacement in the summer. Not keen on the Apec ones I put on last
  15. I'm hopeful for the CCV out of the options! My trips are a decent distance but doesn't take long so is all but just as bad as a short trip round town. Plus undercover car park so less circulation. Have read the M54 only really heats up properly after 30 minutes to burn off some of the crap! Checked the oil tonight and no signs of water in it so fingers crossed.
