    Btw e39 525i cuts out....

    You need to test the fuel pressure, even tho you maybe able to hear the pump running it might not be doing it’s job,

    I’d be looking at the fuel pump to rule it out, they can be as intermittent as your problem when on there last legs

    Strange noise !

    Had similar with mine also did when turning right into junctions, thought it was the handbrake shoes as my handbrake was useless so I changed the shoes as they were knackered and rubbing, still had the noise!! Turned out to be a heat shield over the prop shaft that had dropped down at one end and was resting on the prop

    £500 banger rally

    A mate of mine has done the ‘ Benidorm or bust run, always watched his progress on unsocial media and it’s always looked like a good laugh, most of the cars get dumped in the airport car park as they all fly home, quite a funny scene, mk5 escort dressed as Thomas the tank engine, Toyota carola with a ridiculous plywood ‘fast n furious’ Home made body kit and many others all abandoned in a car park corner, all for charity too

    100k miles of fuel economy data

    Dedication to the pump!!! I get 500 miles per fill of 60 litres, but managed 600 in the last fill as we been on various family days out as well as my 12 mile round trip to work over 9 days, I could get more mpg but I’m heavy footed, mine is 2.5d sport and I’ve never put fuel in it n thought “ffs”

    Halfords discount????

    I’ve never been refused anything yet! Only ever seem to need gear sets replacing in ratchets, and the occasional deep sockets,I once bought an old n rusty and seized 3/8 snap on long ratchet at an auto jumble, presented it to my snap on man, he gave me a brand new superseded version the week after, I did the same with an old 1/2 facom ratchet too , old as the hills didn’t work, presented it to my Indy tool man, week later got a brand new one

    Halfords discount????

    Just thought. If you’re on machine Marts mailing list they have vat free days on all Clarke products, decent quality too, saved a small fortune on a mig welder a few months ago

    E39 530D consistent power loss

    Fuel filter replaced in 2016? as it’s now 2years old I’d replace that as a matter of elimination

    Halfords discount????

    Snap on gear doesn’t wear out like the Halfords stuff, it’s ok for the diy mechanic and I’m not knocking it but used every day professionally it just would not last

    Problems with BMW battery

    I replaced my battery with a yuasa a few weeks ago,£94 with trade discount. Top tip, put your receipt in a food bag and gaffer tape it onto the battery, you’ll never lose it then .
