  4. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I’m assuming £35 wasn’t an oem set was it, all the aftermarket sets I’ve had in the past never seem as good as the originals
  5. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    has anyone tried putting the mats in the washing machine obviously when the wife’s are out
  6. Help! 530d msport poorly

    sounds like you may have a cracked manifold; quite common and if it’s severe which sounds like it is can cause back pressure problems which could affect your turbo , get the codes read that will tell you of any other problems but I would get that manifold fixed ASAP before you damage anything else
  7. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    took her into mackie transmissions this morning for its gear box service, full hot flush new filters etc and waited for the dreaded phone call but when it came all good news, they stated the oil was black and very old (17 yrs old and 110k) but no swarf metal or debris of any kind in the pan or on the magnets, they are a zf authorised specialists and they stated that bmw auto boxes should get serviced every 40k or 2 years to keep them good, think I have been lucky and the previous owner has never abused or ragged the box to cause excessive wear

    Do those make a big difference, I replaced all my discs and pads and brake pedal still has a lot of travel , quite soft , had a shot of an old 320d and nearly put myself through the windscreen applying the same brake pressure in habit, going to get them bled to see if that helps
  11. e39 error codes

    if it’s an eBay special they don’t work properly, bmw original or vdo Siemens ones from euro car parts, I’ve replaced both of the cps and the main crank sensor with the Siemens ones (their the original parts manufacturer I believe) and they work perfect
  12. New fault codes

    Well managed to find the spare key(put it away safe only to forget we’re i put it) used that and cleared the codes and they haven’t come back so I think it’s safe to assume that either the transponder in the key or the battery is starting to go bad
  13. M54 oilfilter cap

    Looking for an oil filter cap, mine has separated from the rod and mesh bit
  14. E39 massive parts clear out (3 cars worth!)
