  1. SPRING IS HERE ! INFO NEEDED.

    Thanks, they are paint dabs, usually 2 or 3. This is the colour code for the tensile strength of the spring, can you check the rear, should be able to see through the gap, spring might need a wipe, cheers.
  2. Anyone identify this ?

    Its brand new, never been fitted to a car.
  3. Anyone identify this ?

    Thanks Duncan, what is the best M3 owners forum to advertise this on ?

  5. Anyone identify this ?

    I acquired this last week from a house clearance, no idea what it's off ? Brand new and unused fitted with Michelin 225/45/17 Pilot SX tyre. Anyone know what it's off ? What's it worth ?
  6. REAR SHELF SPEAKERS & REVERSE CAMERA

    Can anyone confirm if taking a power feed for a reversing cam off the reversing light power wire will bring up a dash warning ?
  7. Mr FIX9H Ceramic coating

    Thanks for the advice but at £54 for the Car Pro Quartz stuff is a bit steep ! Any more recommendations for good stuff and reasonably priced ? Post links if you can. Cheers.
  8. Mr FIX9H Ceramic coating

    Time soon to give my pride & joy a good polish for the summer. This stuff seems to be getting very good reviews, anyone tried it ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Anti-scratch-Detailing-Glasscoat-Motocycle-Hydrophobic/dp/B075GFYZQQ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1523374575&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=mr+fix+9h+ceramic+coating&psc=1
  9. Low Mileage e39 530i SE - Whats it worth?

    Thanks Dennis, good info, can you post some links to the gear you recommend ?
  12. Looking for tips on good touch up spray paint. Got some new PDC sensors on the way that will need painting in Titan silver. Was going to stay safe and get the expensive BMW stuff but has anyone been impressed with a good match with a cheaper brand ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/BMW-Genuine-Silver-Metallic-51911052566/dp/B00MA8MPQW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522944207&sr=8-1&keywords=BMW+spray+paint+titan+silver
  13. REAR SHELF SPEAKERS & REVERSE CAMERA

    How about this for an idea ? I found a round flush fit cam which is 20.5mm, a tad smaller than the PDC sensor. One of my sensors is a bit corroded and needs replacing anyway, what if I replace it with a cam and paint the other silver coloured but good sensor black to match? Not sure if the PDC system will work with one sensor out ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Raysell-Waterproof-Vision-Reversing-Parking/dp/B01C2GJ3YI/ref=sr_1_57?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1522860204&sr=1-57&keywords=reversing+camera
  14. REAR SHELF SPEAKERS & REVERSE CAMERA

    This is my diffuser which was, sadly, cut for a tow bar which has now come off. I have another good diffuser on the way so now I am wondering if I could make a square recessed housing in the cut out to accommodate a flush fitting circular camera. The other thought I had was to fit the circular flush fit cam into the square pop out panel that covers the towing eye fitting.
  15. REAR SHELF SPEAKERS & REVERSE CAMERA

    Thanks Marc, I know what you mean with the Chinese head unit, I put one in my Focus and there was a nice improvement in sound and you can tweak it to your liking with the equaliser. I was thinking that there may be better speakers that are popular with owners that I could fit while I've got it stripped out. I'm not really clued up on reversing cameras so I was wondering if it could be set up inside to allow for the length of the boot when reversing up to something so the warning tone goes constant when approx 2 feet away from an object ? If not, it will have to go outside, maybe on the diffuser but I didn't want to drill anything. Maybe a boot handle or number plate light one but I dont like the look of those. I saw a number plate one on a E39 saloon a few days ago and my eye was drawn straight to it because it looked odd. This handle one is not too bad. Or this one
