  1. 100k mileage not far off....

    I had mine done also by lepsons nearly 7 years ago a very quick turnaround, offered me two shades of shadow chrome and I opted for the darker one.. No curb Mark's as yet but just starting to show some signs of bubbling around some of the holes next to the bolt holes but that's it. IMS I paid £400 and that was with tyres on & pick-up and return delivery. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    It's a dry weather car Kobayashi unless I get caught out [emoji16] I try and do things as best as I can. Big Vee Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    The lights were new about 7 yrs ago but still look new. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    A few photos taken on local common grassland. Polished and sealed all round. Looks like it did in the showroom apart from foglight surrounds. Big Vee Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. E39 Slimmbones Finned Diffuser

    Very nice, I've been looking at these for a while but after my paintshop bill I'll have to wait a while. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    James of the net and not eBay for once this is the link 39.99 delivered. Needed a bit of fine adjusting to fit good. I then bought some 45mm Id flexible pipe and routed these into the intake plenum behind the bumper. Always thought the M5 was strangled with air but did not want to go the route of two rings in mesh grill as these force air to my brakes. http://shop.bmwracingparts.co.uk/E39-M5-Spor-Fog-Light-Covers-/-Air-Intake Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    For an 18yr old it scrubs up well Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  9. Short shift gear lever - How To guide!

    I did this to my M5 I lengthened the distance between the ball and linkage with a machined no if bar and welded up. Impressed with the reduced throw and feel. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Just fitted all the trims with new items, I've added some air intakes around the foglights, I think it just gives it a bit more detail Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  12. Hi V8 Warrior, how did you get your screen to display engine info ??
  13. The old girl needs some tlc

    I purchased some Red 7 (autosmart) I must say as my wheels were really contaminated with rust from my disc's after standing outside for quite some time prior to giving the old girl some tlc they really did scrub up well

    Thanks Pidgeonpost, I actually found a very similar list yesterday, I was more after what can be coded to give a more personal feel to my car if that makes sense ??

    The rear shelf is sun bleached, as my sun blind has been up all the time there's a definite two tone shade going on. Under the speaker grills was the original black so I thought I'd use some black leather dye, the picture doesn't do it justice but it looks 100% better than it did. I've just received my cable set from Jimmy and loaded it onto my computer so I can sit in garage and view on the big screen, not sure if I'm going to have a go at coding as could be out of my depth as there's nothing mechanical to mess with. Are there any lists of e39 codes available ????? Big Vee
