  1. Hi There, I'll take this if it's still available? Cheers
  2. Hi All - looking for an E39 Sport Front Bumper in Titan Silber in good condition, Titanium Silver, PCD holes if possible and spot lights and corner trays if possible too... Money waiting - I'm in the South West area near Swindon Cheers Paul
  3. Hi, is the front bumper still available? Where are you located? Cheers
  4. OK - I can now report back... I have fitted the ATE pads over Pagid discs and covered about 1400 miles... They are Sooo much better than the half worn Bosch pads I took out of the callipers... smoother and more progressive braking and almost no fade from high speed. I will post a picture of the pads that came out as I think they had actually started to come apart and were rubbing in weird ways on the discs which was causing the odd groaning noises...
  5. Thanks everyone for all your replies - I bought ATE pads today - I will report back on performance and noise later! Also - when I come to replace the front discs, I have a set of sport carriers and callipers, does anyone know if the callipers are the same and I can just put the carriers on with bigger discs or do I need to replace the whole lot?
  6. Well, it has ben a long time since my last post in this thread - TBH not much done in the last few months... but here is a quick synopsis... I'm not really sure how this happened, but I came back to my car in the carpark and found a fookin great big dent in the rear door next to the drivers door handle!!! It's been getting on my nerves for ages now... Picked up another one in the right colour from Tesla (top bloke) and fitted - annoying dent now gone!! And having put another 10K on the ODO - had to get the ramps out and do another oil service... More coming up soon - suspension bushes, possible gearbox mount or engine mount and new brake pads to try and get rid of the old groaning creaking and juddering when the pads get hot...
  7. Hi All, I know this topic has probably been done to death, but.... (nothing comes up when I search 'brake pads') I am about to buy some brake pads for my 530d from Euro Car Parts and they have the following makes: Pagid Eicher Textar ATE Bosch I currently have Pagid discs and Bosch Pads - I have not been too impressed with this combo but as I only need to buy pads I don't want to buy a bosch set again... Do any of you have any recommendations or experience of any of the other makes? Cheers Paul
  8. The cable I have is from Jimmy - I know it reports the voltage when I connect - but it always says voltage is low, I can probably borrow a power supply to hook up to the car to do this... Does anyone know if this is a lengthy proceedure or is it fairly quick? Cheers
  9. I just read this through again - I still really like that mod (and want it!) bloody good show!
  10. Cos there will be that one time when you forget and it's dusk and your approaching a junction and that car just pulls out I front of you... And afterwards they say "well you were flashing me out" Or... You just don't want your car to fail the MOT!
  11. OK, I grabbed these from Richard a couple of weeks ago and I am very happy! No coding needed, No faults, No strobing! Thanks Richard! When I have collected the plugs and bits I need, I will be making a new set with Photos... May be a few weeks off from now...
  12. Hi All - my friends 2002 530i has the ASC warning light on permanently - the car had a faulty ABS pump which has now been replaced, I read the fault codes deleted and re-read using DIS and the car still has this fault (which I can't read fully). Anyone any ideas of what to check/do now?
  13. Square set - 4 x Rears!
  14. I have since changed my mind - I really like 166's I have a set of reps on my e39: But I also think Type 2 schnitzers look amazing too!
  15. No, they are originally e61 M5 wheels... There are some other fitments available, but I'm not sure what - mine are reps Neither... They are really deceiving tho - they are 17's You can't beat a set of 37's (Mparas) or Schnitzer type 2's IMO
