    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Rear top mounts done today as I had 2 hours to kill and a hangover to sweat out.

    How the hell..

    Suspension on a 100k car is a must for me

    They way I look at it is the inner will also be worn if the outers failed so do the whole tie rod and be done with. You can do one in half an hour. i bought the crowfoot wrench to use with my torque wrench to make sure the job was done right.

    As the shoes are only for the handbrake they shouldn't wear out but obviously for the price always should be swapped when new discs are fitted

    Touring rear brake lines

    I assume they didn't bother following the setup procedure, download it and go back with it and make them do it

    You can fire the switch via dealer level diagnostics if you have ISTA or INPA, that's how I got mine open when the loom broke

    Took mine in for tracking under the care package today (7 left) I bottomed out big time going under a diddly bridge on the lincolnshire backroads just after it was tracked 2 months ago, this was the result today. Soon followed by the toe bolt snapping. Luck on our side it came out and they had a bolt to stick in so I could get home (interesting holding the wheel in the green while he nipped the bolt up ) Car now sat in the air again and a bag of camber bolts sat on the worktop. I decided to change some more vac lines today and snapped the end off the accumulator FFS, another £30

    TOOLS

    Can also recommend these for shock changes, the little strut tool is ace, shock came out and new one in with zero effort. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Spring-Compressor-Dumper-Strut-System-Coil-Clamp-Tool-Set-Tuning-Kit-Car-Red-UK/292634665751 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BERGEN-2pc-1-2-STRUT-CLAMP-TOOL-VAG-VW-BMW-Citroen-Ford-B1232/152534830911

    E61 M-sport rear shock?

    I know, can understand a bit in winter though...

    E61 M-sport rear shock?

    Well the car now has a full set of Koni's special actives installed and a few trips out to bed them in. Wow, just wow, this is how a 5 series sport should be. Confident and planted in corners, the level of grip has gone up especially when you floor it out of bends (including the adverse camber coming out of the BMW death trap near Ikea that claims a BMW on a regular basis) The body roll has gone down, I didn't expect that. Speed Bumps are no longer a bottom clenching experience with no thud as you come out of them and the same can be said when hitting the many potholes around here, I no longer need to weave around the smaller ones and getting caught out by one that's' 2 inches deep no longer results in the pothole explosion sound. Things like expansion strips can only be heard and no longer felt. Well worth the gamble of stock or Koni, I can give them the thumbs up and recommend them.
