  5. parking sensors E39 M5

    Hi folks recently had my rear parking sensors changed as I'd encountered the usual continuous noise when reversing. Since then it still does this intermittently even when I'm no where near and objects. Is there a way to reset them? With the ignition on and in reverse engine off they act as they should when walking up to them. Thanks

    Not bad at all fella ☺ Yep as much as I love my M5 there's nothing like the experience of driving my saff, rattles and build quality more evident but still love it

    I know lol, power delivery I'd imagine is very different and linear

    Monte Carlo were big turbo too iirc
  9. New Wheeler Dealers

    That sound right, a friend of mine had a L reg big turbo in ash black around 10 years ago. Was a bit laggy but when it came on boost it was savage, running 340 bhp at the time

    I believe it was to do with emmisions at the time thats why Ford installed their own management and smaller turbo to make it more driveable also but think you can only go to 305bhp from various tuners unlike the Weber system like on my car

    I've not seen the episode but the last of the escort cosworths were small turbo which had coilpacks and Ford's engine management system as opposed to the Weber system. I think the engine is called the YBJ variant of the YB range which I know the rocker covers aren't interchangeable with earlier engines

  13. Death in the family

    Sorry about your nan fella, started back at work today. Found it really hard this morning and had a cry in the office with the health and safety last who was great tbh, and some of the boys I work with. Got easier as the day went on but then felt anxious towards the end of the day as I knew it was reality if that doesn't sound daft

    Managed to get through the funeral and Ann had a great send off with lots of people there. Now reality has hit us and got work tomorrow which I'm not looking forward too. Sorry guys just wanted to get things off my chest

    Thanks, there's been no shortage of tears. Both of us have been sobbing just now, just want the pain to go away
