    Propshaft Flex Disc / Guibo

    That lower one looks like an e39 diesel one, which all have what appear to be washers from what I’ve seen, petrol e39’s don’t.

    WANTED - Style 37 18" Paras

    I’ve got a spare set of style 37’s, but will need refurbishment. I had a set of 18” style 32’s on my E39 for a bit and I don’t think they quite work on a sport, but perfect for an SE however.

    Do I have a MAF problem?

    Nah it’s not as bad as it looks, you’ll be fine!
  4. Nice little upgrade, would prove useful I’m sure.

    Do I have a MAF problem?

    Good point, I’m not entirely sure. Next one I get I’ll be sure to measure the output with an oscilloscope and see what’s what, I suspect the output drops with age but that’s only a guess. Yeah it’s easy job, I’m sure there’s a guide on here somewhere.

    Out of spec camshaft sensors can also cause similar effects even if no fault codes are shown. Had the same on a 530i and a replacement inlet camshaft sensor cured it. It was like a different car afterwards!

    Winter oil 5w40 or 5w60?

    Mine has been run on 5w30 for almost 200k, 100k of which has been tuned to 290+ bhp. If I lived in a really cold region I might consider a switch to 0w30 but for me in the uk it’s not really a consideration.

    Burning smell thru vents?

    Might be worth trying an antibacterial air con cleaner too as you can get rid of some weird smells sometimes.
  9. My first 7 was a 728 and it was pretty good all round really, not bad on fuel and did move when asked. The V12 is the one to have though, totally effortless and I still get 18mpg...

    Failing gaskets on 523i

    Too true. They make a great noise though...

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    That’s right, I’d love to know why they did that. It just seems to add a load of unnecessary wiring and components.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Replacement pusher fan fitted in and working at last. Converted from 4 wire type to 3 wire PWM from a 525d so no more resistors to worry about.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    After 5 years I’ve finally gotten around to ordering a pusher fan for my 530d...hopefully I’ll get round to fitting it before the summer is out.

    Fan running full speed all time

    That is my understanding of it...

    Fan running full speed all time

    Ah I’m with you now. No I’m sorry I don’t have any idea where those nuts should be set, maybe someone with a 35d could measure/count threads to give you an idea?
