    Style 95 alloys

    They fit straight on, offset is c24 IIRC They'll go on fine with 10-15mm spacers too https://goo.gl/images/HNc57b

    E39 540i Sport Touring Auto £4950

    Lovely car Seat looks like it’ll need restoring, this is through experience Crap advert though as usual. Half arsed to sell, but wanting strong £££ for it. Where’s the other pictures (interior, engine bay etc)?

    Reverse sensor!?

    Drop this into the relevant F10 tech section pal; it’ll get better coverage & answers there. This is just general chat

    Dash Cam phone apps

    I’ve a dash cam in the classifieds if that’s of interest to you... I’m going down a different route

    Erg recall

    I'd get it back to them ASAP, highlight the issues and experience you had and then move it up the chain. It's clearly not right and needs sorting!

    Dash Cam phone apps

    Have a good look on Amazon. There are lots on there, have a good read of their reviews etc Have you already got a dash cam?

    Eibach spring kits

    Could the cheaper kit be for a touring maybe (ie. only front springs as rears are bags)?

    Buying an e39 M5.

    You have to go and view a good few of them pal, makes a lot of sense, more so at this money level! Let me know if/when you come up this way, I’d be happy to tag along if you want another opinion or someone to drag you away

    New pads and discs

    Yeah, they offer a coatings option for a further £15 IIRC

    Wheel spacers

    The bolts are fine yes, just the studs are a safer option and they also make life a lot easier when it comes to taking alloys off/putting them on after cleaning or other work etc. A personal preference yes, but one that’s done a lot on BMWs

    New pads and discs

    They’re always going to be a bit noisier and wear pads down more due to their design, but for road going use, you’ll not have any issues. Youll hear them more on braking slowly, but at speed they’re fine. As for pad use, meh... I anchor on in my land barge, zero issues and no pad wear worry... Same with previous 530i cars and 728i Whstvthey do very well is keep the pads face clean from glazing and aid in cooling too... But for their price, they’re very hard to beat IMO!

    As already said, welcome The 528i is a great car, get your questions asked in the relevant E39 tech section further down the home page and we’ll all be along to answer/help out
