    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Hi all, i know ive asked this before, but I got no response. iv Le fitted a new updated bumper onto the beast, and new round, or rather oval, fog lights. Thing is, there wiring connector are incompatible. Where can I get adapters. also I’ve got a pair of angel eye headlamps for fitting. Where can I get the adapters for that wiring. Winter projects to get my R Reg 540 touring ie the beast, up together.

    Hi all, V interesting activity on here, and very impressed with that new brown livery! The beast has taken a bit of a back seat over summer. So much to do & so little time really. However. I took the opportunity to fit the upgraded fog lights into the new bumper, expecting there to be no issues. Well You can guess what happened. The plugs won’t fit! Do any of you learned ladies & gents know where I can get (cheaply, hopefully), connectors from the old to new lights. Headlights too, I’ve got to refurbish a pair with halos to go on the beast.

    Hi, It was something I left in the boot! Silly mistake, but since the car was in the yacht club car park, which is secure, I neglected to cover the contents of the boot with the retractable cover. Would never have been a problem in a normal UK summer, but this time? I was lucky to still have the car!! R

    Yup! I was real lucky to get away with it! ill have to do something creative to mask it, but I’m thanking all that’s holy I got away with it.

    Wise move indeed! Dogs are members of the family who deserve the same care as children. My lesson has been learned about the boot cover, (I don’t have any pets), though. R

    Hi guys ‘n’ gals, I know the weather is changing for something a little cooler, but I thought I’d bring this little item to your attention. i went away on the boat for 10 days & left the car parked in the club. No probs though I. WRONG!!! i had forgotten to put the boot space cover over and there was clearly something highly reflective in there. The scar is where the lining had been melted! a salutary lesson. I won’t be replacing the roof lining though! also worth bearing in mind for you dog owners. Clearly the temperature in a closed car can get seriously hot!

    Me too. There’s a place down here that sorts exhausts out. Might have to invest in a sport rear bumper and see about twin pipes. I always did like balance!

    Min needed welding underneath, but they sprayed a bumper & tailgate for me as well, so I’m not complaining. Mind you, I want to have the gbox oil changed & that’ll cost! That and spacers, new water pump and hoses, fix the air con leak, remap the motor, plump up the seats, fit the tailgate spoiler ........ the list goes on!
