    Hi, Oil filter housing gasket for an n52, please! Thanks! Jonathan.
  5. Hey, Vin ends GF14019. Edit: found the part number: 13621433077 I think. I'm assuming that I can't just buy the green rubber ring? Could I also have the little hose that goes from the bottom of the rad to the alternator on the passenger side I believe that is: 11531711385 . Cheers. Jonathan.

    Rear Anti Roll Bar Bracket

    Hey, E39 540i GF14019. The bit that goes around the rubber and holds it to the chassis has snapped. Cheers. Jonathan.

    Thoughts on this 550?

    Hi, What do people think to pre vs. post faclift on a 550? Normally I'd be inclined to hold out for a facelift if you're looking around that age. I know the enginge did not change for the facelift, what about the gearbox? Have read that the earlier v8 boxs can be a bit rough. snrbrtsn, that's a nice car! Maybe I could be the next next owner once my e39 has serverd it's time, and the price has dropped a little more! Cheers. Jon. P.S. Andy went to see the car I originally linked to and was amazed (predictably) but there's an engine warning on top of everything else people have pointed out so I don't think he'll be having that one. He's in no rush.

    Thoughts on this 550?

    Thanks guys. Tend to agree a few more toys would be good on a 550. Looks like the cheapest facelift on autotrader though. Andy did spot today that the bonnet shutline looks a bit off! Any thoughts on running costs? A lot worse than an e39 540? The mpg claim made us chuckle, too!

    Thoughts on this 550?

    Hey, A friend needs a new car after his was rear ended and written off. He likes my e39 540 but wants something more modern. So I found this just a few miles away: http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201401171107614/sort/pricedesc/make/BMW/model/5%20SERIES/postcode/br33ej/radius/1500/engine-size-cars/4l_to_4-9l/onesearchad/used%2Cnearlynew%2Cnew/price-to/13000/body-type/saloon/fuel-type/petrol/advert-type/featured-listing/dealer/780/usedcars?logcode=flp Do you think an se will be much harder to shift on than a sport? Potential problems I guess will be similar to my car ie coolant system, gearbox, suspension wear and all the electronics. Is there a lot more to go wrong compared to the old e39 540? Cheers. Jonathan.

    Returning to M-Tech II springs

    c3bmw are listing sachs shocks for ~140 a corner. I'll be ordering a set soon, and will probably pair them with Eibach Pro kit springs. My car was excessively lowered by a prior owner so this will actually be a raise in ride height! I'm probably not going to change top mounts as mine are not bent at all - I've never felt the car bottom out - and the cost quickly spiralls...
