    2003.525i Sport. Saloon.
  1. E39 540i Sport - Delivery at Last!

    Looks great inside, I will have a 540i one day ! The brushed ally trim set is available cheap on Ebay, quite easy to change, most of it just pops off. Look here. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-BMW-E39-5-series-INTERIOR-ALUMINIUM-TRIM-SET-RHD-8pcs/192324921043?hash=item2cc77566d3:g:7jAAAOSwWsdZjVq5 Regarding the Android head unit, I am a big fan of these from AudioTech Direct in N. Wales, I have one in my Focus for over a year and they are superb. Customer service from ATD is spot on. I have just ordered this latest Android 8 unit for my 525i Sport. Will be delivered in a day or two and will be going straight in the car, will let you know if there any problems. The excellent Bluetooth and Torque app for OBD2 diagnostics is the big thing for me. A nice touch is the settings for the start up screen, you can choose the 'BMW' or the 'M' logo so it all looks OEM. Huge improvement in CD & radio sound quality as well. Full integration with on board Canbus is standard. https://audiotechdirect.com/pba-bm5839b-android-8-after-market-radio-for-bmw-e39-e53/ Nice clear interior shots, what camera are you using ?
  2. E39 540i Sport - Delivery at Last!

    Each to their own of course but in my humble opinion 17in Style 66 suit the car perfectly. I like the look of 16in style 50's on the SE, they certainly don't look lost on the car. Personally, I hate this current trend of shoving big wheels on everything but that's just me being a grumpy old fart. I was privy to a viewing of a proto of the new Aston Martin DBX last week with it's 22in wheels, I was asked what I thought of it, I said it looked like a frickin crop sprayer, they didn't like that ! Well they did ask !

    Congratulations ! Lovely looking car. Don't ruin it with big Carlos Fandango wheels & elastic bands for tyres. Nothing beats the look of a clean well polished un-molested E39 Sport on 66's. Enjoy the car. Count the times you catch yourself looking back at it as you walk away after parking.

    Thanks for posting pics, thats confused me ! According to the info I have gathered so far, the early 520i SE had a redish brown paint code and the 525i & 530i SE had yellow front & rear.

    Interesting, blue marks are normaly sport springs, have you lowered or modified it ?

    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.
  7. Anyone identify this ?

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

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

  10. 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 ?

    Can anyone confirm if taking a power feed for a reversing cam off the reversing light power wire will bring up a dash warning ?
  12. 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.
  13. Mr FIX9H Ceramic coating

    Time soon to give my pride & joy a good polish for the summer.

  14. Low Mileage e39 530i SE - Whats it worth?

    Looks very nice indeed, if it was manual I would be on my way ! just curious, what size wheels & tyres are on it ?

    Might just leave them unpainted and see how it looks.
