    How much to ask?

    Prices on M5's seems to be influenced by maintenance history, condition and unusual options. If you have lots of documentation and she looks like she is in near perfect condition I would even go higher than £16K depends on how quickly you want to sell the car. But Essexboy is more knowledgeable as he only recently bought his car.

  3. Some really strong opinions on Wheel finish but I agree with Cableguy they should be Shadow Chrome which is a black base layer.

    Hello could you also add this. Sorry not sure what its called but it connected to the drivers side wiper arm, its a large plastic cover which goes over the wiper mechanism and can be seen when the bonnet it down. Also could you add the NS and OS wiper arms? Thanks

  9. Could be my screen but they look a bit too silver for an M5, how do they look for others. These aren't mine. https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39-m5-e52-z8-discussion/575073-shadow-chrome-wheel-restoration-uk.html

    E39 M5 potential restoration

    Good ideas will defo change the bonnet liner and get the detailer to do the rest.
  11. I don't mind putting my car up on axle stands for a bit to send them off to get my wheels done properly. Still looking for a good bodyshop though, Preston is too far unfortunately.

  14. Only when I get her back from Darren, will endeavour to get some done this weekend.
  15. Hi All, I feel like I am asking shed loads at the moment. I am restoring my E39 M5 and she is with Darren Wood at the moment getting mechanical's, MOT and service done. The next up are the wheels and a respray, I live in the South Manchester area and I was wondering if anyone can recommend a wheel refurbishment company, I had them done about 5 years ago but I spotted a few blemishes on two of the wheel and asked for these to be corrected only to find that the two that were corrected were then different to the two without blemishes (this was done by Prestige Wheels), I am reluctant to use them again and would welcome your recommendations. Next up will be a full respray and freshen up of the black rubbers and plastics, could anyone recommend an exceptional bodyshop please in or around South Manchester? Once this is done I need to replace the rear view mirror glass and get her detailed. i will post photos as this work is being done hopefully with before and after shots. Can't wait to get her back into tip top condition, not that shes bad now of course.
