    Which service do I need?

    Cheers RDL. Yeah I got them to do a few bits, but left easy stuff like air filters for myself. Looking at the history it's had a new rad (I've heard about them blowing up at 100K miles!) There is a note about the viscous fan being weak though, this would make sense as the electric fan does seem to cut in more often than I feel is normal. New fan clutch next on the to do list!

    Jesus, yeah they are definitely trying to rip me off on those filters! Thanks for the links.

    Cool, I'll go for an Inspection 1 then. The Pollen filters, they want to charge £75 each for them – sounds steep! Is it worth the extra for a K&N air filter then?

    Oh yeah, just serviced properly. There a a couple of good independents near me.

    Which service do I need?

    Firstly, hi! I bought my 540i sport just over a week ago and so far I love it! I knew the car needed a service when I bought it, I'm just trying to figure out whether I need Inspection 1 or 2. It's got 88,000 on the clock, previously it's had Insp. 1 at 84k just over a year ago, Insp. 1 at 82k in 2016 and Insp. 2 at 78k in 2015. Do you think I had better get the big service done or would another inspection 1 be OK for now? Any advice much appreciated!

    Hi, one question – did the VANOS horrors affect the normal 540i engine or will all of those be OK?

    Thanks guys. Yeah, I've shared the hell out of it. Fingers crossed it turns up, but I'm not counting on it.

    Oh yeah – my area would help! I'm in Reading, so could be anywhere in the South East by now...

    Woke up this morning to see my beloved E28 had vanished. Pretty pissed off as you can imagine! If you see anything or hear anything please let me know. I'm in the Reading area but it could be anywhere by now. It's in Royal Blue, currently on E34 Style 5's. Picture attached for reference.

    What is this?!

    Aha! OK I'll pop it back in there then! Thanks!

    What is this?!

    So I was finishing an oil change the other day, mopping up a couple of drips from that undertray that goes round the the sump and found this. No idea where it came from or how long it had been there. Any ideas what it is? Should I be worried? Car seems OK without it...
