    Auto box too keen to change gear?

    Yes I did, with no dash lights and the gearbox guys cancelled all errors and all's good.

    Auto box too keen to change gear?

    Things can go awry when the front abs rings/sensors have intermittent problems as the gearbox takes its speed from these.

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    Went out with G friend to Mansfield in Notts and in one pub they did a few lagers within a happy hours or so for 2 for £4. Needless to say we were both wasted that night.

    Refurb kit for seats

    Hi there I have an E39 530d sport which needs some recolouring on the front light grey seats. I believe that the petrol version has a slightly different tone of grey to the diesel. Would a kit be available to do the front seats. If so what would be the price? Thanks

    End of an era...

    It's gone to a good new owner now Pritesh. Glad you were involved with the E39 love story like ourselfs.

    E34 M5 Touring restoration

    Always loved the E34 in all its guises. Would love a 525ix.

    Lets see your BMWs that you have owned

    My first Beemer that started the ball rolling and away from the likes of Ford n Vauxhall. A low owner E34 530i V8. You couldn't hear the engine at low to medium revs and with 218bhp would go when given some revs as it was inheritly a short stroke engine. When I sold it and it drove away I nearly sobbed.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I got one on ebay for cheap as my new lazer in the mkiv wouldn't recognise a aftermarket disc. Bluey haze disc=Copy Silver disc= Genuine

    webasto without battery drainage?

    I say get an extra person in the car and drive in shifts of say 5 hrs. It would help as a witness for the throat slashing as well.

    Soldering Iron advice

    A good gas powered soldering iron is the way forward. As long as you can get spares your great. Smaller ones usually have an equivalent wattage rating adjustable from 20-60 watts. You will never look back.
  14. The new models when new or low mileage will still be a nice car but just wait till they are at the bargain end of old n used where the e39 is now and I bet the twin turbo engines and interiors are at transit van levels. A local indie near me was telling me of engine failures on twin turbo diesels where crankshafts cracking and snap.
  15. I guess the dealers think that if you can afford the car they can shaft you for the servicing. Go to an Indie and request oem parts.
