    advise for a possible newbie?

    Hey Guys and Gals, I am just starting the hunt for my next possible whip, narrowed down to the BMW 5 series (as I love the shape) however im not experienced with these cars so could I ask for advise ( not looking for massive debates just down to earth god fearing straight advice) what do I go for basically.... im a high mileage user family of 4 my journey is just over an hour each day all motorway round trip of 110 miles give or take ! I like my cars to look the part so was thinking of the M sport but engine choice is sticky for me do I look at the 525d or the 520d I want manual also as I prefer to drive my own car and have never liked an auto box, I want something from 2005 to 2006 reg as that's what my budget is going to allow for now sub 4k .... thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to the advice Jonathan
  3. Just picked this little beauty up last night from Arden BMW in Kent! The difference between my 2007 E60 and this is phenomenal! The F10 feels so much more modern inside!
  4. well after 13 years of vw's (still own one, but let the rest go) I took the plunge and decided to go for a BMW. Originally i was after an E92 3 series, but the bloke selling the one i wanted was a douche to put it politely, so after much hunting i settled on a 5 series. must haves were m57 engine, manual box, and m sport kit. after a few weeks searching i found what i was after; the more observant of you may recognise this car, it was gtsteves, but sadly i paid a middle man inbetween him owning it. but never the less steve has been an absolute gentleman in providing information and history on the car. hats off to you sir he is also the reason i am joining this forum, he highly reccomends it! loving the car and enjoy the fact that it sounds nothing like a diesel, sounds pretty evil with the quad exhaust. turns heads everywhere it goes and puts a smile on my face every morning on the way to work. the stereo build by absolute audio is phenominal too. also the snooper and tr30 come in mighty handy so far i have just been fixing bits and bobs on it, like the floppy boot that kept twatting me in the head when it was open. a bit of maintenance under the bonnet. took it for a dyno run too as it didnt feel anywhere near as powerful as the dyno that came with the car said it was (290 bhp and 556 torque) it turns out its actually making 223 bhp at the wheels, 247 bhp and 447 torque at the flywheel. after this i deleted the egr and coded out, would have liked to put back on the dyno to see if it makes any difference or not! feels like it spools quicker but nothing worth writing to your grandma about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTNiC1Ac6P0 so whats next......well as for the power, i've booked in at sp tuning at the end of may for live mapping. I have the annoying blinking/flickering on drivers side headlight when on dipped beam (driving me nuts) so need to do a bit of investigating on that. And need to get the electric wing mirrors wired in, just because things not working get on my tits, will get round to it at some point. and the passenger headlight being a bit cloudy is on the list of things to do, need to invest in a resto kit. Im also hoping to swap the wheels for some borbet style 95's from a 7 series, if anybody has any for sale or would be intersted. hint hint! so far no regrets and pleased with the move to a beemer. Jim.

  6. Hi Unfortunately another at fault driver piled into the back of my immaculate E39 530i sport Champagne Edition II. The car will probulary be written off,I'm gutted!! With 142k trouble free miles on the clock on a 03 plate,and my ownership for 12 years, its still a fantastic car to drive, I had a full body respray last year and various mechanicals,so £££ spent...it holds no store with the insurance company. So Im looking for parts, Rear drivers side quater panel Rear bumper Bootlid Diffuser panel. Ideally a champagne edition thats being broken for spares,or undamaged Sapphire black parts.

  12. Hi guys i have a 57 plate 520d auto m sport, and i believeit has a M47 engine init. I have read that alot ofnpeople talk about swirl flaps and removing them. I have a few Q's regarding them: 1 - what are they and what do they do? 2 - why should i remove it and what are advantages/disadvantages 3 - what size blanking plates do i need 22mm or 32mm? And where do you recommend me going 4 - approx how much should a indy charge to do the job? Thanks
  13. Hi im wondering if anyone can help me with this problem I am having - I recently upgraded my headlights to H7 HID kit on my 520d Msport Lci Step Auto - everything was going fine but then I noticed when I switch the HID lights on I get a little jerk in my car. It does not happen all the time, just on the odd occasion. If I am driving in Manual mode, it either automatically drops my gear down or if i am slowing down/standstill in traffic and I switch the light on I get the jerk and it changes the gear to DS Or if i am driving in D the little orange light on the gearbox goes out for a split second and lights back up, also this results in my gear to drop down automatically (only notice it as my revs increase). Its a bit hard to explain so sorry if i have confused you all - its like whenever it happens its like theres an extra volt that goes through the car to initially power up the H7 bulbs and thats what is causing the issue - but i may be wrong. I know bulbs have nothing to do with the auto gearbox, but as that auto gearbox also gets some sort of power supply from the battery, thought this may all be interlinked. Any one experienced this before? Or any advice on what i can do? I really like the HID upgrade I have got and do not want to get rid just coz of this jerk issue I am having. Also dont know if the problem is interlinked, I have 10w CREE LED AE bulbs in which flicker when the car is initially started and I have also got white LED number plate bulbs with a built in resistor (these have never flickered though when the car is started or AE or H7 bulbs are switched on)

    Am i taking the pi55?

    Hi all, I'm looking for a bit of advice. I've recently put my car up on PH and i'm just wondering if i'm being realistic or not. My reason for procing is i had a look on the PH site and the only other cars that are comparable ie. 530 sports are a champagne edition for £5.5k, a grey (great colour) 530 sport with 99k but its on a Cat D for £2900, a 2001 model with 175k for £2,750, and a silver (same as mine) but with 132k on it and has had a deposit taken on it for £2,160 which i'll admit is a good price. I've put mine up for £3695, expecting to get knocked down to somewhere around £3,350 Is this reasonable? I've had an email from some joker asking "why do you think its worth £3,695" admittedly its only been up for 2 days, but still. I'm not desperate to sell it, but as its surplus to requirements it would be handy if it went soon-ish. Please no abuse, as i really rate this car as being in excellent condition, just serviced, taxed and MOT'd. Surely its worth that sort of money? PS, i'm a gold member so I think i'm ok to post this? http://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/bmw/e39-5-series-96-04/bmw-5-series-e39-530i-sport----------------2002/1595524
  15. And i have very few images of my new E60, and it was still looking reasonably clean -
