    My new e39

    Allright folks, As promised i am back exactly 4 years from purchasing my 520i pre face lift, i now have a 02 525tds in silver, it is rough around the edges but seems to be mechanically sound apart from a drop link is making some noise, and i need the batteries replaced for the keys, I will upload a quick pic of it just now, got it as a swap for a transit van i paid well under budget for so isnt too bad Any idea value on these wheels as im looking for rondells for it Cheers Here she is.

    Allright guys as I promised since the last time I was on I had my 5 series then the head gasket went so sold it as spares and repairs and then bought myself a golf gti turbo ... however I said I was gonna show you the pics heres some of my golf and of my new car let me know what you think cheers The golf I had was immaculate and had amazing paint was in such good condition for being 15 years old, however that is also my old car and here is some of my new one She is currently running 280bhp with some little modifications, new turbo and injectors with a light map just waiting on funds for my blitz nur spec exhaust 3" from the turbo back and new turbo again and a front mount and a forged stroker bottom end aswell for her and I should see around 450-500 bhp with the correct map on her I know its not a bmw but as a motor enthusiast I thought you might appreciate these cars cheers Davievtec

    Head gasket or new car ?

    Yeah ive been told not to do the gasket as its more hastle its better to just change the engine and if i do that im gonna go from a 2.0 to something bigger but i have seen a 525tds for sale a pre facelift like my own so if anyone wants my car if it isthe head gasket i will sell the car to someone thats willing to do work what you reckon ?

    Head gasket or new car ?

    Allright folks ive got a feeling my head gasket is going ... No milky oil or leaking coolant but shes running rough and also white smoke and smell of burning from the exhaust i dont know if its because i dont have petrol in my car at the moment ... Should i fix it and how much is a headgasket to get done on a bmw or should i just buy a new car ? Thanks Davievtec
