  7. My M5 has been holding water on the sill for a while and have been meaning to sort out the vapour barrier for a while, I already had some butyl tape left over from my old car so I set to work, what was evident is that the previous owner/s have already had a go, or someone has on their behalf. Not sure what they used but it was rock solid and provided no seal whatsoever. Images of before and after.
  8. Googling your own reg

    I wasn't aware he was a member, I bought it from a trader who I believe sold him the car before he sold it back. Certainly better pics than I have time to produce. Hopefully he sees the post and I can update him on the motor if hes Interested. It was certainly well looked after.

    I would have to agree, this is however my first BMW, previously Ford Rs, and a Seat LCR mixed in the middle of the ford's. I seem to have bought a good one, engine is quiet, Interior is in excellent condition. I'm busy addressing suspension, brakes including refurbished calipers and new hoses, fluids all round, new pusher fan, steering wheel retrim etc. Next up is bodywork- could do with front and rear bumpers tidying up, sills tidying, Jacking points are strong. I'll deal with hidden rust under subframe and all plastic covers while paintwork is being addressed. All roundels and shadow line trim to be replaced.. I could go on but you guys know this already.

    Thanks chaps, like a tinder selfie there lurks a few flaws but to be expected for a 14+ year old car.

    Well I've stalked this forum for long enough and finally got round to creating a post. I own a 2003 E39 M5 in carbon black. Owned since beginning of 2015 am working my way through the usual E39 gremlins. Other than that it's a superb form of transport. Few pics to start with. Lots of work done over last few years, still plenty to do but it's a real labour of love.. Based in Darlington area.
