  1. I've used these a few times - just bought another. All ok with fit and quality and they have a 2 year warranty. Cheap as chips too http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-X5-3-5-7-SERIES-E39-E53-E86-E85-Z4-PARKING-SENSOR-PDC-SENSOR-66206989068/281820664377?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 They do the straight ones too
  2. That's a great collection
  3. We need pics! (Welcome by the way lol)
  4. That M5 interior money surely!
  5. I bought these recently - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131601584429?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&var=430972799392&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT For cheapies they're actually not bad at all. They came with the right fitting studs and the shape/fit was perfect. They're not quite as thick as OEM and I'm sure wont last as long but no complaints with them
  6. Smells like a dry dog now then!!
  7. Wet dog, such a lovely smell!! I use Autofresh too, it works really well and you don't need much of it either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That's looking very fresh Dan
  9. Well if all goes to plan, I'm picking up a silver 530i Sport Auto tomorrow morning - my first petrol E39 (Excuse the dull pics, it was getting dark!) I'll be the 12 owner! However, it's only got 125k miles on it, very clean indeed, especially inside there's little signs of wear. It's got four new tyres, a lot of new suspension and cooling system components and drives beautifully. Spec isn't too bad, not as good as my old 530d sadly. Prof sat nav (MK4), heated seats, a Baris upgraded amp with AUX and removable tow bar. Looking forward to burning some petrol for a change!!
  10. A few little updates. First of all I had the EML come on, but the car still ran great. Having looked at the fault codes, and chatting with someone on FB with similar, I purchased a new fuel breather valve - only 24 notes off eBay. I'm still to fit it but hopefully it will take care of the issue. The light is only intermittent - and mostly when it's really hot outside. I also noticed the rear discs were looking pretty crap, so new discs, pads and wear sensor were fitted to the rear on Friday. Car is filthy and really needs a clean!! One result was at last finding a gear knob with technical graphite trim on it. The leather was gone, so the trim went in to my own knob (oo-er!) 18 notes well spent I think given the scarcity. I've still got may VANOS repair kit to fit - I'm looking forward to that as hoping it may improve my 20MPG at best results! I've got no VANOS rattle but guessing with 127k miles on the clock and no evidence of them being replaced, they must need doing. And, despite being silver, this one is starting to get under my skin a bit now. Maybe I won't sell it and get another 530d after all
  11. That Alpina really is a stunner
  12. By any remote chance does anyone have one kicking around they'd like to sell? I know Bimmernav do them but if I can source one UK it will make life a little easier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Welcome, a nice way into BMW ownership. There should be enough cylinders to keep you going for a while
  14. Good video that
  15. Welcome Stoycho, it looks like you take pride in your BMs Nice M3 and the 535 looks good too. That's one hell of a PC!
  16. That's a result!
  17. I'm pretty sure the X8R kit comes with the high temp sealer for the corners of the gasket. My kit arrived last week but with a broken foot I haven't opened it yet! lol Also, use code 'VALUED' at checkout on X8R and you'll get 10% off
  18. It's only half a tank of diesel on the way back, and at the end of the trip you'll know your new 39 inside-out
  19. I'm surprised it's not gone yet. I've found selling 39s that it can take a while to get someone to view, but first one along buys. I don't know if you're finding the same? Anyhow, good luck for a swift sale now
  20. Welcome to BMW ownership! That looks really nice, the interior is super-clean
  21. No worries. Worth it for 16 notes I reckon
  22. Here's the link - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131601584429?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&var=430972799392&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I went cheap as wasn't sure if the colour would work. However, whilst they're not the thickest, they seem a very good fit and probably better than a set I bought for £25 last year. I'm expecting them to go fluffy quickly, purely because they're cheap. If they don't I'll be well pleased [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. They were yes. It's a subtle change, but in the flesh I think it looks ok.
  24. That's the one! It's a great book!
