  1. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Passed mot today after yesterday's failure on the number plate light on the reversing camera not working. Luckily enough, had a spare unit after an eBay cock up when I bought the original. Tester even offered me £3k for the 540, mmmmmm?

  3. Two tone parcel shelf

    Must admit, it does look very black now, might be a nightmare to keep free from dust etc.
  4. Two tone parcel shelf

    Finally got round to doing this yesterday, took a bit longer than 5 mins to remove the shelf though. I used a flexible fabric spray paint from the bay, 5 cans for £8.75 delivered & used four of them. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/x5-Black-Fabric-Spray-Paint-Leather-Vinyl-Art-Crafts-Flexible-200ml-5-Colours/262993639702?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p20578 Total time taken was approx 4 hours, allowing plenty of drying time between coats, the change in colour is quite dramatic & looks a million times better.

    Definitely interested in these, can you confirm if that there is not any cracks in the tyre treads and the fronts are continential and the rears are Dunlop's?
  8. Two tone parcel shelf

    Simple question really, due to leaving the electric rear blind up when parked, I have now developed a two tone parcel shelf. What's the best way to restore it to the original black finish? I have read on here that people have sprayed it black, but what do you use to do it? How easy is it to remove the shelf? Cheers Tim

    Thanks for the input gents, been looking again & there is quite a big bit of black trim inside around the window, so I might go for the dark tint. Or I might go for the lighter, decision's, decision's?
