  1. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Replaced the prefacelift rear bumper trims with facelift ones (colour code) and yes, they are interchangeable. I also bought a facelift SE bumper but it will need painting, fog lamps, and the number plate trim.
  2. About to break a 2001 e39 touring 530i titan silver

    I might be interested in the kidney grilles if they are facelift ones in good condition
  3. Best and Worst thing about an E39

    Worst: The likelihood of rust appearing Best: Driving dynamics for an "old" car. Some new cars have still yet to match it. The build quality.
  4. Private reg newer than car - WHY NOT?

    Probably the same reason they don't allow us to make up our own private plates like in other countries such as USA, South Africa, or Australia.....money.
  5. Difficulties at refuelling...

    It's the way you hold the gun in the hole. It used to do it to me often until I held the nozzle differently.
  6. Back into a 5 series! 523i just purchased

    Nice clean example. Are those genuine parking sensors? I only ask as I see them in the front as well. Prefacelift had rears only if specced with PDC i think
  7. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Replaced the rear tyres, rear brake pipes, and driver's side rose bush. Going to get some welding done around the passenger rear jacking point tomorrow and then it will have a new MOT
  8. Audi A4 front end, Subaru Impreza mid end, and BMW e60 rear end lol
  9. Angel eyes are not called angel eyes

    I call them halos because that's what they look like. Typically, halos go on angels, and headlights are the eyes of a car = Angel eyes. Germans like scientific things so I guess corona was a good name for them to use.
  10. LED indicators.

    Where did you get them from? I fitted a pair of LED indicator bulbs to my LCM3b equipped car and they were nice and bright but did the quick flashing thing. I gave them to my friend who has a 53 plate e46 touring and they flash normal speed with no coding.
  11. Another headlight question....

    Are those lights not prefacelift? (pre 2000)
  12. Aircon in winter

    Yes, you definitely can. Whenever I use my climate control, I leave the A/C on. Works well in the winter for demisting windows, and in the summer for cooling. I just leave it on 22C and press the auto button. The system will automatically and continuously adjust the fan speed and which vents to open/closed. Also, it won't blow full speed when you started a cold engine. As the engine warms up, the fan speed will adjust accordingly.

    You were the only other person replying hahaha
  14. The grand tour

    But seriously, do sheep do the same thing as goats when scared?
  15. The grand tour
