    New brake pads and discs

    Mine is a 2003 525d but mine are 296mm. Unless the sport got 324mm and the SE got 296mm???

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Cheers. I did think about one of those...but i wanted to clean up the front a bit and thought the original mount was too if your face (position wise)

    After months of searching for a way to beef up my front bumpers look...i fitted one of those rubber EZ lip splitters and i think it adds a nice amount of extra depth to the front. I didnt want to do the traditional sport bumper onto an SE, the aplina splitter for the SE is barely noticeable and im not keen on the AC splitter neither. So i think this is a nice cheap alternative way to look slightly different. Opinions welcome.

    Yes 100% will make sure they point the right way. any advice on the washers? I was hoping you would reply as you seem to be the parts guru on here.

    PMSL. Some may say its not very PC, some may not be bothered. I picked it up in the correct context being innocent...it was just your question about (can i say that?) that made me laugh.

    Propshaft Flex Disc / Guibo

    Hi all, I'm going to change the above on the car this weekend as i get a loud single thud when taking off at speed and have already bought the replacement part as per real-oem - part number 26117572664 Now i have seen various images online - some have the normal 6 holes with the metal inserts where the bolt goes through and some have the same format but on both side of the disc - they also have strong looking washers where the bolt goes through. Was there a design change at some point...both can show up as the same part number when searching for them...im just wondering if im over-thinking this? Im assuming the strong washers is a good thing? Thanks

    Very impressed how these are turning out from their original colour.

    SE Saloon quiet tyres - some feedback please.

    Ive got avon zv7's on mine. Very quiet and the wet grip is amazing. I also love the rs3's as dan suggested...but ive had them in the past and they wear down so quick with spirited driving as the compound is so soft. Literally 3 months they were shot...although i do tend to drive very spirited ha.

    Wheels balanced ok? A good while back some weights had come off one of my wheels and it caused horrible wobble? Nice cheap fix to check?

    Sport gear knob

    Great cheers. I love the idea of the ZHP knob but no way could i justify spending £70+ on a bloody gear knob. Based on your comments - i have just pulled the trigger and ordered one too. I was worried when i first seen your thread as the image seemed to only show the M stipes off centre and no actual "M" lettering. Glad yours had both stripes and M letter once received. Cheers again
