  9. Only gone and done it!

    hi guys, not been on here in ages. I just had to say Ive gone and done it! I have wanted an E39 M5 for 5-6 years now and back in 2014 I got one. A 2000 car that had FBMWSH and only 87k miles on her. She was always used as a toy be both the previous owners and did need some work but mostly was great. I spent a few k doing the suspension overhaul, seals and engine work. still had one or 2 things left to do but I did something stupid and took her out in the rain at the end of 2014. I always drove in sport mode (preferred the heavy steering and throttle response) and I had DSC off (stupid) unfortunately I lost the back end in the wet where there was fuel/oil on the road and the insurance wrote her off. I then bought another one dirt cheap that needs a lot of work and I had her in the garage for 2 years up till yesterday. Ive been buying up all the bits needed and just never had the drive to do the jobs. All in all I have £4k of parts (suspension and engine bearings timing wise) the main thing that needs doing is the jacking points and the bodywork. This is what has put me off. Well I have just booked the car in for MOT on Tuesday next week and purchased fully comp insurance with 8k mile, 2 claims (1 fault [M5 write off], 1 none fault[muppet hitting my 530d]) social and commute 9 yr NCB for £361. so Ive gone and done it Ill be driving the M5 about for a bit. Ill be going to get quotes on the body work and using her while I sort out my 530d and fit all the black sport interior in to her and put the sport bodywork on her off the 525i I am breaking. also use her while I do the clutch and flywheel on it too meaning I don't need to rush the jobs on my rest days. Ill also be weighing up if its worth getting the M5 bodywork done fully and then doing all the jobs on the suspension and drive train I want to do then save up and send her in to CPC or mr Vanos and get them to fit all the timing chain guides and tensioners and big end bearing bits I have rather than risk doing it myself as the vanos is putting me off and its an expensive engine to F*** up if I get it wrong. just had to say I am back in my all time favourite car again. cheers hope I didn't boar you too much Billy
  10. Breaking E39 525i Auto

    Hi guys I am stripping a 2001 e39 525i Auto. 185k miles Please don't ask for parts as I am using most of the sport bodywork and Black sport interior in my 530d se. Ill list items as I get them off. Parts: 2.5l engine £200 Engine has done 185k miles but is smooth as silk and really pulls. Previous owner said there is a very small oil leak from the rear rocker cover gasket just above the exhaust manifold. I believe a fairly easy swap if the motor is out? (would love to put a turbo on this and throw it into a smaller car) 5 speed Auto Gearbox £225 Gearbox is lovely and smooth and changes really nicely. No funny noises. The cooling system will be up soon as I get it all off and checked out, it all looks really new and some of the dates on the top pipes suggest it has had the work done recently. thanks for looking, I am open to offers as I got the car mainly to sort my 530d out after someone hit into the side of me and the insurance payed out. billy
