  1. Mr

    Generally as a rule of thumb, we would replace aged shocks as a pair, but if it's counterpart is not that old and the replaced shock has failed due to damage and not wear and tear then it's perfectly fine to consider only replacing a single unit. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  2. Help me make the transition - e39 ownership

    Pfft please, V8 petrol +6 speed manual rules all Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  3. Fun with fault codes

    P1250 is fuel pressure regulator control unit Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  4. Well that was an easy fix!

    Or look here newtis.info Plug your VIN in and browse to the section you want. It's not terribly user friendly, but you'll get the hang of it. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  5. Would you sell your e39 for an e38??

    Very nice Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  6. Help, no luck with the trifecta of abs/dsc

    Also check what the charging voltage is at the battery... Low alternator performance has been known to cause these kinds of failures Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  7. I've never had an issue jumping from either set of terminals. However there is a procedure to follow especially using non suppressed cables. In OPs case it was another issue altogether, which makes me think he has a transfer pump problem. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  8. Check to see if one of your terminals is loose... It wouldn't be the first time. I've seen a jump start knock loose a clamp that had come undone a touch and was only holding tight by force of habit Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  9. Did you use your battery or the jump posts under the bonnet for the power source? Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  10. That makes me think it might not be related, and is just an unfortunate coincidence Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  11. If you can, have the codes read Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  12. Did you use suppressed cables? Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  13. retro fit xenons

    However if you have manual aim control on your dash that would function correctly... Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  14. Finding VIN from reg no.

    Bugger... Our mob even have a phone app for it... I use it all the time to use VIN decoders and parts catalogues when I don't have access to the vehicle.. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  15. Finding VIN from reg no.

    Over here the governments have a rego checker on the department of transport websites. Enter the rego, it gives you the type of registration, registration status, if the plates are stolen or from a stolen vehicle, and the VIN. This looks like it's similar.. https://www.gov.uk/get-vehicle-information-from-dvla I just don't have a UK rego number handy to test it. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
