    Cement on paintwork

    Sooo a building site has dropped cement onto my car. It happen while I was away and the rain and sun have dried it to a hard shine! They contractors who own the site have agreed to pay to have it removed. So any tips on good detailers serving east London would be greatly appreciated. Not had to deal with anything like this before but I assume that it will not come off with out damaging the paint.

    Do I have a MAF problem?

    Just spray some brake cleaner through it and leave to dry.

    Do I have a MAF problem?

    Have you checked your ICV? These can become clogged and effect tick over. Worth a check. In my experience issues with a bad maf would produce a constant bad idle.

    As d_a_n1979 said no coding needed for e39. ECP currently have 45% off batteries. https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/BMW_5+Series_3.0_2003/p/car-parts/car-electrics-and-car-lighting/electrical/car-battery/?444771107&1&2a222a6245d0e5c144f50ce27337468b16040e11&000020 I wouldn’t bother with BMW warrenty.

    E39 pre facelift parcel shelf speaker fault

    Yes exactly right the radio/amplifier module is tucked in behind the cd changer in the boot.

    E39 pre facelift parcel shelf speaker fault

    Have you got the bmw radio still fitted or is there an aftermarket HU in the dash? If you still have the bmw original radio it’s most likely the radio module on the boot. The solder joints get dry and Cause the speakers to drop out. Can easily be repaired by carphonics.
