  1. WANTED front brake disc back plates/dust shields

    No problem. I had a quick look as I replaced them on my son's e46 a while ago. There was a multitude of 3 series ones, so I thought that it might be similar for ours. 'just goes to show! Definitely a dearth of e39 backing plates. Was it an elongation of the aperture for the handbrake locating spring, by any chance, that requires you to change them?

  3. E39 for sale 23K

    That's just mental! I'm a huge e39 fan, but at that money, I'd be looking for a mint, low mileage M5.
  4. 525d turbo vs 530d turbo

    My 525d's turbo whistled for nearly 200k miles, and was still making the noise when I "retired" it at 296k miles. So it doesn't always follow that a whistle is terminal. Good luck with yours.
