    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    For general maintenance replaced one of the pre-cat sensors, struggled to get the rear one out so I'll get my mechanic to do that.

    Those rims transform the car! Are those aftermarket tints, if so what %?

    P1074 Fault Code?

    Hi All, During a 200 mile trip and soon after refilling I got a Engine Check light on the display, although the car seem to drive fine and no changes per normal. I plugged in the OBD sensor today and got the following code: P1047 - System too Lean (Bank 2) Any idea what could be causing this? When I start the car I do get a somewhat rough idle but seems to calm down once the engine is warm. Potentially MAF, or Oxygen Sensors? Also is there any issue with me driving the car with the fault code? Thanks!

    P1074 Fault Code?

    Thanks both. Did a quick clean of the MAF and reset the code via the OBD2 app. Been driving it around town and no issues so far, i'll keep and eye out with your recommendations in mind
  5. Thought it was about time I started a projects blog! My E39 was bought from @d_a_n1979 who took care of it at no expense and hoping to carry on the great work. Next on the to do list is to do a audio overhaul with the help of @DennisCooper who has been super helpful, so watch this space! Few initial pictures:

    Routine wash and replaced one of the door kick plate. Working with Mr Dennis Cooper to do a audio overhaul, watch this space! Just realised from the pictures my driver side headlight isn't working...time to check it out!
  9. Anyone know of any reputable car audio installers around East London, looking for a custom subwoofer install for my E39. I have used Car Sound Security before and did an okay job, just wondering if anybody had further recommendations. Cheers!
  10. Got to say the E39 does look good in white, don't see many of them about! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/E39-BMW-540i-manual-V8-non-vanos/153176488172?hash=item23aa07b8ec:g:euIAAOSw4HFbSnWp

    Silver E39 530i - "SHA 1"

    The other week saw a very very clean E39 530i with the numberplate "SHA 1" in East London, Stratford. Having a quick look, it seems it's only done 30k miles and is a UK car. Very nice

    @d_a_n1979 Had a look outside and the cars covered in dust already

    Wash and hand polish was long overdue:
  14. Seems like it's starting to crack and just fall apart, any idea of a part number so I can purchase one? Cheers!

    Door sill rubber replacement?

    Already reached out to them as a first point of contact, no supply in germany and no supply date either unfortunately. Found some used ones on ebay that might do the trick!

    Finally got uk registered

    Looks fab - was it worth the wait?

    Door sill rubber replacement?

    Thanks mate - very useful site that I should have in my bookmarks. Seems like it's the door sill rather than the seal, so going to replace the entire sill part number 51472695671.

    Wonder if it could be this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E39-5-Series-Passenger-Side-Rear-Door-Rubber-Seal/292646070103?fits=Plat_Gen%3AE39&hash=item442310a757:g:tyUAAOSwPm1bT7L1

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Invested in a pressure washer and using the double bucket method gave her a good clean. Next to invest in some decent wax

    Took out the MAF sensor and gave it a good clean!
