  1. Widescreen Brightness

    My screen seems to be deteriorating so I think the LCD is knackered, I’m going to order one of the Sharp LCDs off eBay. Will update when replaced.
  2. Central locking remote&manual stopped working.

    This should help to show how my wires frayed
  3. Windscreen seal + rubber buffer

    Protective glazing is similar to the double glazing option (not available for the windscreen or rear window), designed to be anti theft as you can’t break it.
  4. I've read a few threads about putting LEDs into the high beam of the facelift lights but not low beam. Morimoto do the 2stroke H7 but some members have just got cheaper ones off ebay
  5. Connection Support Plate

    Ordered over the phone
  6. Connection Support Plate

    Hi, Can I have individual costs for the following please: 05 CONNECTING SUPPORT 1 18211745300 06 Hex bolt with washer M8X18-U1-8.8 4 07119905529 These are for my E39, chassis GF13151, thanks Barry.
  7. E39 amp upgrade

    I had the Baris amp upgrade, it makes a nice improvement and I agree it’s more subtle than out & out volume. I did upgrade my speakers as well though which has helped. I’m sure it’s not that good compared to a “proper” upgrade but with an intravee for iPod control it’s very usable which is what I wanted.
  8. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    There are the 2 short hoses from the ABS unit to metal pipes in the engine bay. A bit challenging to replace but when you think about the heat generated in a V8 engine bay worth doing. I’m just ordering them from Hel
  9. Widescreen Brightness

    OK, sorry if I’ve given the wrong info. There’s a thread on how to adjust the viewing angle of the screen but obviously best to get the right one to start with.
  10. Widescreen Brightness

    This is the one I'm looking at: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-5-Sharp-LQ065T9BR54U-TFT-LCD-Display-Panel-For-BMW-E39-E46-series-1999-2005/352159112089?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649
  11. V8 curiosity

    You sound like Dennis......I think the standard E46 rim is thin unless you pad it out
  12. V8 curiosity

    Probably easier to get an E46 paddle wheel
  13. Great job, was it expensive to buy the Alpina bits?
  14. V8 curiosity

    Had my Alpina B10 V8 for nearly 6 years and don’t plan to get rid of it. The engine is great, nice & relaxed in auto but drives great when you switch to the steering wheel buttons
