  1. E39 Technical Graphite Trim Set

    Hi If you were to split the set I am after the two bits behind the steering wheel (and the centre console if you change your mind!!)
  2. Windscreen wipers

    What's the best replacement for a touring rear wiper blade? The Halfords part finder doesn't list any...
  3. Key fob - flat?

    Totally agree, they are great. They did both my diamond keys which came with the car as not working remotely and got them back within 3 days both times. Seems like they work from further away then most new ones!
  4. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Swapped out my telephone armrest and all the gubbins for a padded rest. Reset the nav after a failed upgrade . Also replaced the missing ambient temp sensor (although I still have to put a new corner undertray on so it is wedged behind the foglamp!). Next is to replace front droplinks, and make a decision about Android vs Mk4 nav with aux in....
  5. Android headunits

    I'm thinking of getting the Eonon GA7201 but I have a couple of general questions about Android headunits to those that have them fitted.. How can you access the OBC once you have removed the OEM stuff? What OEM modules can/should be removed? Radio? TV? What's the boot up time like? Thanks!
  6. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Had a busy morning, I removed Traffic Master including the module and fitted some cupholders (thanks dan101smith) - fingers crossed the sat nav will stop rebooting randomly now. Also replaced the rear speakers with some slightly improved ones (thanks Piper). Then fitted a replacement washer reservoir cap which the previous owner seemed to have lost... and realised that the airbags are losing a bit of air so that's the next thing to buy
  7. Traffic Master removal

    Fantastic, thank you!
  8. Traffic Master removal

    Hi all As my first "mod" to the car since I got it, I'm planning to remove the defunct Traffic Master. The dash bit is straight forward but I am not sure where the module is in the boot... it's a facelift Touring and there is nothing next to the Nav / CD changer in the cubby hole on the left of the boot so is it under the floor? Any gotchas that I need to be aware of while doing this? Thanks!
  9. E39 front cup holders

    I'll have 'em... PM me your details Thanks G
  10. Back in a 5-series

    Thanks - it's an auto (same as the last one) but I'm very happy with it. The difference in power over the 528i is a surprise!
  11. E39 corner undertray

    Crikey. Think I'll leave it for the mo Thanks
  12. Back in a 5-series

    Hello all, Just bought myself a titan silver E39 530i Sport Touring and it's great to be back! My last E39 was a 528i saloon with a few mods that I sold about 2 years ago, not sure this one will be getting the same treatment... needs a few cosmetic bits sorting and possibly some new keys. And then we'll have to see! Pictures to follow Cheers G
  13. Hi I'll take a pair please, PM me your details Thanks G
  14. E39 corner undertray

    Hi, Can you please quote for the driver's side corner undertray and the external temp gauge for a '52 plate E39 Sport, VIN GL81454 ? Thanks G
  15. Groaning steering....

    Have you checked your power steering fluid level? Thought my newly replaced bearings were already going but turned out it was just a bit low....
