  1. The c£25/30 cree ones on ebay are fine. Some folk say the more expensive ones around £60narenthe ones to go for (can't remember their name, but I'm sure someone will come along and rectify that soon enough)! **edit: http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/mtec-ver-3-6w-cree-led-angel-eye-marker-bulbs-bmw-1-5-6-7-series/
  2. That's a lovely looking motor and hell of a lot for your asking price. Worth that every day IMO. The bodywork can soon be sorted
  3. ^^ So 245/40/18 upfront and 275/35/18 on the rears?
  4. Looking into new alloys; wondering which width tyres I'd need to go for, for the above width alloys, or will the OEM sizes of 235/40/18 & 265/35/18s be fine? Cheers
  5. I'd say for M Sport springs; the nearest and closest to price would be the Eibach Pro springs IIRC They don't lower the M Sport models by a lot at all, if any http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Eibach-Pro-Kit-30mm-lowering-springs-BMW-e39-Limo-saloon-525d-530d-E2069-140-/161472340204?epid=1114243268&hash=item25988060ec:g:VpEAAOSwgZ1XrgC-
  6. Still available and open to near offers
  7. As above! Check the rubber piped intake leading from the airbox to the TB; there's a section that has ribs, they can split in between them, so deffo first place to check Air is getting into the system somewhere, hence the higher idle, IMO
  8. Can anyone further confirm what ISO lead I'll need to connect an aftermarket head unit (i.e. Kenwood etc)? Every time I do a search; it brings up the 17 round pins, but nothing that looks like it'll connect to the connection that goes into the back of the OEM cassette/radio head unit! It's the first picture ^^ that is the connection I have! Apologies if it's just me being stupid!
  9. Thanks for that; looks a good piece of kit Where did you connect the battery terminals; or is the cable long enough to reach the battery in the boot?!
  10. When you say lower dash; do you mean the aircon control unit etc; or the actual knee bar that runs where the glovebox is etc? Any suggestions/instructions?!
  11. ^^ Looks stunning pal!
  12. Removed the Parrot kit (which has now sold)! Refitted the OEM head-unit and it looks/feels a lot tidier now; will sort a replacement Bluetooth head-unit ASAP, just need to decide on single or double-din layout etc Hoovered the interior and boot out from the 700+ miles round trip and cleaned the interior to within an inch of it's life! Just need to wash & wax it now; that'll get done later this week
  13. How the hell do you remove the cage that holds the OEM cassette/radio headunit it; saw the 4 screws (2 on each side, inside), but it's still stuck fast... Where else do I need to unscrew?! Re a replacement unit; when I unplugged the unit to get the Parrot kit out; this is the plug that goes into the back of the OEM head-unit: it's not a familiar connection to me. Is there an adapter I need to connect it to the likes of a Kenwood head-unit or similar?! Do the Xtrons/Eonon head-units or similar Android units come with the necessary adapter etc?! Getting myself more & more confused Car hifi/electronics are NOT my strong point!
  14. Some genuine BMW ones for sale over on Facebook: '5 series cars and parts for sale UK' You need to be a member to see them, easy enough to join if you're on FB etc
