    Dust free brake pads

    Is anyone aware of dust free brake pads available in UK, these are catching on in the States and some states are compulsory. If anyone has tried them, are they any good ?

    E39 Saloon rear mud flap solution ?

    Thanks Dan, they are genuine BMW. Here's the problem. New from BMW dealer Used off Ebay Part No of new ones from BMW Used off Ebay fitting nice on front.
  8. Any members had any luck finding nice fitting rear mud flaps for the E39 saloon ? I bought a good used BMW set off Ebay and the fronts fitted perfectly, however the rears look awful and dont fit the curvature shape of the bumper. Tried another £35 pair from a BMW dealer but same problem. The picture shows the ones I have which are quite different. Not keen on the logo but its all I could find. I have a lot of country lanes around me and I tired of cleaning cow shit of the back of the car so would like to find some smart looking flaps.

    Wrong size rear wheels !!

    Thanks chaps, Any good reason the rears are wider than fronts on the Sport saloon ?

    Wrong size rear wheels !!

    That's what I thought. Look at these pics, I have my hand through the wheel holding the tape measure hooked onto the inside lip. Definitely not welded and wheel looks OEM. NEAR SIDE FRONT NEAR SIDE REAR (Was the spare)

    Wrong size rear wheels !!

    Well I have owned the car for a good few months now and just discovered my rear style 66 rims are the wrong size ! Took the car to the local tyre shop to swap the NSR tyre onto the spare which I wanted fitted to the rear as the rim is in much better condition. When fitted I noticed the rim was wider, a quick measure across the rim lip to lip was 10in, all others are 9in ! So, anyone got a good condition 10in style 66 to sell me for the other side ?
  15. I have just taken a good Witter tow bar off my 525i Sport Saloon. It has the quick release swan neck ball hitch. It's all there, bolts, brackets, spacers, wiring & socket. They are £195 new so looking for £100 for it. Postage anywhere in the UK will be about £20. PM me if interested.
