    BMW E39 530i facelift breaking.

    Hi Mate, Not sure whether it comes in two or more parts, but its the ones which you can see if your looking at the front of the car side on, kinda of goes round the front bumper underneath. How much for the grills only really need the drivers side top door grill.

    Hi mate, do you have the plastic under tray for the front?

    e39 Coding options whats available

    Hey Guys, I've looked but cant find anything. What options are available to coding on the e39's? I guess some of it comes down to the spec of the car. But I would have thought there would be a standard set of options that could be set / changed / coded, but I can't find a list anywhere...... Or does it come down to the software that you are using as to the options available?

    My 1st E39 wooohoooo

    Been looking about and its seems the locking issue could be to do with the actuator. The top of it that goes in and out seems very loose and that spring seems to have appeared underneath the plastic housing so I suspect its fallen out / come loose from something causing it not to lock. Any ideas???

    My 1st E39 wooohoooo

    Hey Dennis thanks for the heads up! Those wheels do look sexy as.......... Currently trying to look throught the forum for ideas on wheel finishesetc. But the polish lip is top of my list. Also trying to check out ebay for a replacement boot catch / lock, As mine isn't locking at the moment

    My 1st E39 wooohoooo

    So its been a few weeks, and the car seems great so far, one or two small issues which I want to get sorted. Been eyeing up a mobile wheel refurb company to sort out the kerbed wheels ( cheers @Hairarsy ). Been looking at a company called kiwicolours http://www.kiwicolour.co.uk to see if they can restore the wheels back to a perfect state. Going to give them a call in the morning. Not sure on colour, might just keep it standard or maybe with a nice polished lip, also going to see if they can sort out the bonnet, (lower left) which needs pulling back and respraying. It's a minor issue but I would like it sorted. Gonna try and get her booked n for a service as well in a few weeks. Also noticed that the boot doesn't catch shut anymore. Also reports as bootlid open. Something has come loose inside the boot mechanism, anyone come up against this before? pictures below show the parts, think the spring goes inside that "thing" somehow. Is it easier to just buy a new part of fleaBay? Common issue? Boot stays shut and doesn't fly open but for obviously reason would like it sorted. Any Ideas.....
