    BBS Split rims on 540??

    I too love those BBS style wheels especially on a dark touring.

    E39 540i Sport - Delivery at Last!

    God Damn it that is a clean car. Please don't take it to the supermarket car park, get it dirty, drive in the winter or behind a gritter. Good find and enjoy.

    Sunrise at Gatwick

    I love driving really early in the mornings as the driving is so peaceful without the other muppets. There is no other man made transport that stirs the senses like a jet airliner taking off.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    There is a used auto box on ebay for 900 from the same model X5 also. Just need a crankshaft pistons con rods hp fuel pump and injectors I guess as a minium. Shouldn't cost more than 10k. Lol.

    On night shift flicking through eBay thinking how this item would fit on my 530d . https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F173181270106

    e39 Auto no reverse gear

    Different box in my 530d but I bought a non runner box with TC from ebay(£50) really cheap and let my local gearbox guys strip it down and replace all worn items n seals(£550). Because I have another TC then I can get that exchanged for a recon item cheaply. Just the matter of fitting and bobs yer thing. Could even get some money back from my original box as a runner(of sorts).

    E39 boot lid

    Raymond thanks for the encouragement but the loom needs mending also for the boot so it will have to be a dry day when the wife's at work and I don't have to do the school run.

    E39 boot lid

    Took me 4 months of constant searching to get a clean Un. Even then when rubbed down it had s fair dink in the top edge that had been filled in with filler. My spray guy pulled it out before spraying. It's been 2 years since it was sprayed and it is still in my parents shed waiting to be fitted! Will have to be soon as the original is rotting to hell.

    Top Gear

    Did a licence plate check on the tractor and it started out as a Chevy Blazer. Poor.

    Crackling speakers

    There is a multi plug (quadlock) on the bm54 in the boot and sometimes disconnecting and connecting a few times cleans up a dodgy connection. Worth a try before parting with cash.
