    Missus cooked my 525i!

    use the colored coolent, you should see the color not the water, it may evaporate instantly, blue smoke is ring defect, which may be older than your problem, while black is compustion ratios defect. water leak into cylinder room, will cause high condensation on exhaust, you dont want to loose your catalyser. the main item to check now is were the water escape from, 1 L a day is too much, check also the heater radiator, and radiator cap, heater may rust and leak by high temps, once you confirm water escape is from engine, change gaskets and this will be the cheapest most reliable solution before you move on to bigger Godforbid problems

    I would control the oil, if it shows signs of mix, water loss, you have to check also for cracks in cylinder head or the head cover it self to exclude internal water channels busted, if ok, it wont cost that much to replace head gasket and give it a try, try on new mineral oil (10w_40) and new filter, (in the process of trial), should be cheap and not a loss to replace after you control everything is fine. new engine is a step forward, leave for later and its still better and cheaper than build up, wish you and your car al the best man

    Sunroof upgrade question E39

    in order to reach the screws that hold the Metal sunroof sunshade, or glass roof sunshade, you Must dismantle the roof it self, the glass by tilt position, removal of gators, then three screws on each side, Metal by slight open the roof so it just dip beneeth the back edge, before starts opening, slide the sunshade back, uncover three horizontal bolts that adjust the roof from the back and connect it to sunshade mechanism, then the front screw on each side of the roof, then you will have access to every thing in sunshades of both glass and metal, here is a link to a very good series of a guy changed his metal sunroof into a glass one,
