  1. Well 2 years ago today I purchased my e61 535d in pretty much standard set up , was down the mother in-laws over Christmas so took a pic roughly the same spot but 2 years apart, has cost as small fortune but have replaced / upgraded a lot more than the photo shows but you get the idea of how much it's changed
  2. E60 535d Touring Buying Advice

    I had the exact same dilemma 2 years ago, 530d or 535d, I upped my budget a little and opted for 535d as I'd didnt want to look back and though i should have gone for the twin turbo, there a very quick car as standard and lightning quick once tuned, I've raced my brother in his e46 m3 and if the git would have moved over I would have been past him , as mentioned above the main things replaced on mine have been the thermostats, vacuum hoses, a top boost hose front suspension arms and the usual servicing parts

    Yet to hear a bad review on the xhp flash
  5. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Fitted new front shocks today, annoyingly only a few weeks after fitting new top mounts and lowering springs, the car was snatching to the left and felt like I was running nine on rubber band tyres, nice and smooth now and stays in a straight line,turns out the passenger side shock was totally gone, pushed the strut into the body of the shock and it just stayed in, no compression left on it at all, every part on the front suspension has been replaced with new parts, drives like new now
  6. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    It's a black box that piggy backs the throttle pedal switch, basically makes the throttle body open quicker , with it being fly by wire the throttle body is pretty slow to react to pedal input so this takes that delay away and gives a more instant reaction when pressed

    I got mine from euro car parts but there ebay shop, they were £52 each online or £43 each with free next day delivery on there ebay shop, good bulbs nice and white I was sceptical when I got them but definitely worth the money this time of year

    Cleaned the Pipercross air filter, thing was filthy you could hardly see the branding on it, all cleaned and re oiled probably the placebo effect but feels much better now

    Fitted philips white vision gen2 xenon bulbs , fantastic 'led' white light from them, also fitted a race chip throttle response pedal box, again fantastic and makes the car much more responsive

    So, I lowered it today, was a bit of a pig to do, luckily I had the use of my brothers 4 post ramp at his body shop, both strut top mount to were shot, loads of play in the bearing compared to the new ones, car sits nicely on the front now, just the rear to lower on Monday when I pick up the adjustable rear links from the post office

    Check the guides where the load cover runs up and down , if it's auto loading you will see the spring / coils in there , mine played up and stopped working, I had to strip the gearbox which is on the back panel and manually reset it as one side was in the fully open position and the other one was in the closed position

    Cheers mate Lowering it today, decided against coil overs so have a set of h&r springs to go on with new top mounts for good measure
  14. What did you do to your E60/61 today?
