  1. M5 Retrofit

    Hi Guys, I've had a look through the forums and i know this has been ask before but i wanted to make sure. I have a 530i m sport and with electric folding/heated/auto dimming mirrors but I'm thinking of retrofitting aftermarket m5 mirrors, either from SSDD or ebay. As mine are already electric would it be a simple plug and play?? Also on the SSDD websites there's with and without memory glass, is this if your car has memory seats?? Also I've read problems about people receiving LHD versions.
  2. M5 Lower Grill

    I would order from BMW if it was like the ebay one, i.e. full mesh. I know blocking the brake ducts probably wont do an awful lot but i'd rather keep it, i mean bmw must have out them there for a reason. So if i got the M5 one from BMW i'd have to put those horrible (my opinion) holes in each side. And yeah i've read its good to get the metal star clips.
  3. M5 Lower Grill

    Has anyone had any experience/fitted one of these lower grills...? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182590032936 I want to replace my t-bar grill on my 530i m sport bumper but don't want those "sink holes" for the brake cooling ducts
  4. 530i Intermittent starting/stalling issue

    Got inlet and exhaust sensor codes when I plugged it in. Happy days now I can changed them. Strange how it doesn't throw up an engine light though
  5. 530i Intermittent starting/stalling issue

    Fair enough, getting my mates OBD see if it comes up with any codes
  6. 530i Intermittent starting/stalling issue

    You guys say check the codes, and that's what other forums have said. But surely if there was a code I'd get a check engine light? Oddly in this case I think I'd like a light so I could confirm that is is the cam sensor (or something else) rather than an educated guess.
  7. I have a e39 530i (76000 miles on the clock) with a slight issue. It starts perfectly every time from cold. However after it heats up and I turn it off to go into the shops come back and 'sometimes' it takes a fair few cranks (5-10 seconds) before it starts. Also very rarely it stalls at low speeds, starts up fine though. NO WARNING LIGHTS. I've done A LOT of forum searching and I think it may be a faulty camshaft position sensor and wanted to see if anyone has had a similar issue before I buy an OEM sensor?
