  1. Lights on always? How to

    With regards Auto lights, presumably the sensitivity can be adjusted via diagnostic software?
  2. plastic headlight lenses

    I thought you needed to bake the early facelift lights, to soften the "gunk", and that then they could be split and it was only the 03s that were inseparable?
  3. The worst I've ever seen!

    I'm full of good ideas me
  4. The worst I've ever seen!

    Drive everywhere in reverse - your super bright numberplate bulbs will probably light the way better!
  5. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    At least for you boys with sports, (or prefacelifts) Half if not more of your sensors are black - i.e. a lot cheaper than all coloured ones!
  6. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I've had some success with removing the sensor, unplugging, and giving the sensor and connector a damned good clean up and squirt with WD40. Not to say it works all the time of course, but I got a couple of non ticking sensors merrily ticking again.
  7. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Part of my on board toolkit now includes an old credit card in case I need to pop the trim off to revive a sensor! Slightly more convenient than partly removing the bumper haha
  8. Help me make the transition - e39 ownership

    Does anyone buy an E39 without their heart these days!? M54B30 all the way!
  9. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Unless it's an SE and then, handily, they are all in the rubbing strips front and back
  10. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Revived a parking sensor (its the small victories!) and had 4 new Kumho Ecsta PS31s tyres fitted. Hopefully be ok, time will tell!
  11. So you service your own car - newbie help

    I have to say I'm a relative novice when it comes to servicing my car, but this forum in particular is full of so many good hints and tips - for example, the easy peasy way to bleed an M50 cooling system - and if it's not on here, you can ask and it will be answered swiftly. Youtube is good too - I always have my phone with me when working on the car in case I need to look something up. Beware though, some videos do need to be taken with a pinch of salt...
  12. Is this a joke! Is it anyone on here?

    Weird looking bracelet, as well as something hideously tasteless hanging from the rear view mirror... Steer clear!
  13. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Agreed. It's amazing how much dirt and grime there is on the mitt! No wonder most people get horrendous swirl marks...
  14. Would you sell your e39 for an e38??

    I would not say no to a 728i, but there is something about a v12... plus the whirr of their starters sounds amazing in itself
  15. E39 Brake light on and off with a bong sound.

    I must admit I don't know - just thought it might be a logical solution as when you pull the handbrake up with the car moving that light comes on and it bongs. Found this online - although hopefully someone with more knowledge than me willl confirm!
