    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    No, I don't. I'll keep my eye out for them on offer.

    Front pads and discs.
  5. I have 6 litres of Meyle 6HP fluid I paid £11.49 a litre for, not bad I guess. The colour looks to be the same, almost certainly the same stuff. Lifeguard 6 is £20ish everywhere

    Very tempted, they look so useful, especially without worrying about thread/stud depth.

    I did all that. To make matters worse, the whole set is in black. I ordered a new extendable magnet and I'll have a proper look when I get the car higher and level for the spill and fill on the autobox Some guy is selling the bits I want for £13 on ebay. I got the set for £200 a couple of years ago on offer. They're asking £370 for it today

    Removed all four wheels and did a brake fluid flush and fitted wheel studs to all four hubs. Lost a socket to the engine bay, never to be returned from my beloved halfrauds set. Front discs looked iffy. New discs and pads on the way.

    Copper grease dries up on the slide pins and your caliper seizes in place. You wonder why the car feels sluggish and discover your brake disc and pads have been cooked.

  14. I did a little research and as you can see from this guide, the front wheels on a 19" spider vs an 18" MV2 are the same width and offset. The rears is 12mm difference. I'm going to keep my suspension geometry and not bother with spacers, especially as I'll be running both size wheels. I purchased some 50mm studs and nuts and locking nuts that I'll fit next week, to make the 6 monthly wheels swaps easier.

    Was this corrosion on the piston causing this? On a similar theme, I apply silicone grease to the caliper slide pins, where as BMW say not to. Don't use copper grease on your slide pins boys and girls.
