    THE NEW PROJECT... NOT A 5! - 2006 E65 730D

    strange question... is the carpet luxurious and thick?
  3. Is the option there to pay back your personal miles each month which is what I done and worked out well.
  4. I would take the fuel card based upon previous experience. It means your not shelling out for fuel and claiming it back on expenses each month, you will have to pay a fixed pence per mile for private mileage based on government rates / engine size. You can sit in traffic, have your AC on max, burring fuel on a personal journey but only pay back the miles traveled. This was a few years ago but I'm guessing it's probably the same system.

    Small word! We may have passed each other in the corridors not even realising. You're welcome to take your old car for a spin anytime.

    Yup still mines, can't bare to part with it even though I've threatened to several times. My new employer since October last year, great industry to work in. If you spotted the car, does that mean we're colleagues? ;p

    V8 Tapping Noise

    Anyone on here got experience of replacing the 540 timing chain and VANOS or know how much it would cost in a garage?

    V8 Tapping Noise

    The last video sounds like VANOS, car is warmed up and gets louder and the first few video sounds like chain guides. For me, this is just typical 540i maintenance, expensive but just wear and tear of / bad design.

    E39 19'' Staggered Parallel Wheels

    Just out of curiosity, is it an aftermarket wheel?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I have a 540I that I've owned for nearly 5 years now, which is kind of scary when I think about it, doesn't feel like that long.

    You should post a video up so we can all hear it.
