    Hello all! Here's my E39 530i SE Touring!

    Looks nice...how much did inspection 2 and rocker cover gasket cost or did you do it yourself mate?

    EML Warning Light?

    Hello guys...haven't used my BMW 525 se for a couple of weeks but anyway started up this morning/she started first time as usual/smoothly running and drives with no issues at all other than the EML Light has come on and won't go off? Been driving around town and the car runs spot on! Not in limp mode or anything so can't understand why the EML Light is on!?

    BOSCH WIPER BLADE SET £16

    Ordered so thanks ...hope this time i get new ones as opposed to the used/dirty ones i got before at their branch in Lenton/Notts ...luckily i checked the contents before i left so took them in and changed for new ones! How old ones ended up in new boxes is anyone's guess but i would imagine some scammer probably took a set beck and asked for a refund (for whatever reason) and lads in shop didn't check the box before they were put back on shelf!lol

    Gearbox warning light

    This happened to mine when i first got my car so took it to a specialist (BMW) who informed me it was pretty common and all you had to do was stop/ignition off/then on and it should reset itself...if it doesn't then get it seen!

    Favourite feature?

    I have two cars (not rich as they both cost me less than £400 a year to insure both) ...one is my ever faithful Astra mk 3 with 60000 on the clock and gets me to work and back every day without fail as it has done since 2010. The BMW 525 se was bought last summer to take my wife's friends and relatives all over the UK who had travelled over from abroad. It was bought as opposed to renting a car as I could hardly take five people (including me) touring all over the UK in a 25 year old Astra! The BMW did 5000 miles in three weeks and never missed a beat! The car just feels right...almost like an extension of my body(yep weird)...the leather seats...precise steering...grip...total control and just a sheer joy to drive. It makes me smile....I was only supposed to keep it until our family/friends had returned home...but I can't bare the thought of letting her go! All the years I have been working...saving money ...trying to make ends meet...never had a real luxury car other than an Austin Allegro Vanden Plas in bright orange ...this was a treat for myself for once (kids have all gone/grown up) so I thought why not? I have had many cars/minis/Allegros/Toledo's(Triumph) /Citroen BX/Audi/Saab 93/Renault 5/ and many more...all pretty good except for the BX that decided to catch fire ....in a petrol station forecourt! None compare with my BMW 525 se. I mean I am no spring chicken...but quite often I get in my BMW 525 which is parked at a relatives home/garage (safer place) due to the toe rags who live on our road and i just drive for miles and miles and miles (on my own)...road to nowhere but what the heck....because I love driving a car once again and this is all down to BMW who have made an oldish man feel like a young man once again and enjoying driving!(Not so keen on service bills though which soon bring me down to reality)!lol
