    E39 540i Sport - Delivery at Last!

    Dont think decible measuring comes into it unless its a kit car. You may get a fail for being louder than a factory equivalent. Usually mot testers discretion. Here is the MOT text: Exhaust noise is clearly in excess of that emitted by a similar vehicle fitted with a standard silencer in average condition [7.1.2b]

    No worries. Been looking at 18" style 32's but would consider 17s too.

    Yeah i agree...something doesn't look right. The front fog lights seem different too and that wonky exhaust would drive me nuts.

    Power steering fluid reservoir

    Also when replacing and topping back up...run the engine with the reservoir cap off and do full lock to full lock a few times to circulate the fluid and remove trapped air.

    Lowering Advice for summer time
