    RUST!! - Rear arch / quarter panel

    i have a similar issue, mines quite bad. Probably worse than yours. IV been quoted about £300-350 a side to replace the whole arch with a repair section and paint. That's from a very good, reputable body shop in Sussex. Hope that helps.

    ncs expert issues

    Ahhh sorry mate, was replying on my phone didnt see the mention of E60 on the screenshot. Unfortunately i have zero experience with NCS Expert. From reading various things on the internet it may be that the memory in the kombi needs 'wiping' or replacing so that the kombi appears as a new uncoded module? Do a search for UPA-USB. That seems to be the required tool for the job.

    This could potentially be too late. Get yourself a copy of PA soft/BMW Scanner off eBay. Makes doing this job a piece of cake! Ive just recoded and corrected mileage on a replacement LCM. Literally took 5 mins.

    Solution Finish Trim Restorer

    I purchased the kit. You get some microfibre sponges and a cleaning solution. (Which also seems to work bloody well) 30ml Kit 30ml or 340ml

    You can’t polish a turd! Or can you? Budget e34

    Looking good that Sir, attention to detail is impressive. Iv never gone as far as stripping window switches. Too many young people don' t appreciate a quality older car i got my E39 when i was 20ish (7 years ago) it was only a little bit more expensive to insure than the MK3 astra i got out of. One hell of a difference!!

    Solution Finish Trim Restorer

    Simply WOW! This is the best trim product I've ever used. Now first of all pence per ml is high, £15 for a 30ml shot. The product info states this is good for 3 cars, I personally think you would get more than 3. It is an american product and american cars are covered in black plastic trims. This is where that figure comes from i reckon. This the best photo i have as a comparison. Stripped my mirrors to give the trim some much needed attention. i will try and get a 50/50 of the mirror bases when the weather is a bit nicer. I have done front and rear bumper strips, which i didn't think were too bad until i applied this stuff. Now they are BLACK. It also gets rid of any marks/stains on the plastics. Many other trim products I've used look great when applied but soon look crap again (when dry normally) and often don't actually look black or cover marks, just shiny. Obviously this has only just been applied so time will tell how it lasts. if the info is to be believed then 6-8 months for the first application and 12 months for subsequent applications. Fingers crossed.

    Spacer Advice

    I see, makes sense. I want some! I also want spacers. i have M para's and not sure if 15mm all round will be right? Fronts are certainly worse than the rears.

    Spacer Advice

    With the stud conversion do you just do them up FT and hope they don't come undone when you take wheel nut off?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Replaced fog light switch and clock spring/slip ring. I still have an issue with rear fogs and steering wheel buttons not working... not happy!

    Phone Holder Cradle Removal

    I got mine on eBay as a complete setup for a bargain price. Get on eBay. You might have to get bits separately, but they are on there
