my wee 530i

Recommended Posts

Well managed to get a good jump on making the box tonight, Started of with a very large sheet of 1/2 MDF

ive just to cut the hole for the sub to sit in, hole for the rear port & the wires then workout the mounting points on the rear bulkhead.

i'll then dismantle the box and apply tiger seal adhesive to all the faces of the wood/MDF then screw it all together

not added much here lately .. all i can add is that in the past couple of months is that

i upgraded the DISA valve to the better alloy after market item

out with thee old


in with thee new


replaced the head light adjusters in my O/S head light


replaced both bonnet & boot emblems (& bought a touch up)


found these chrome effect nut covers in my car-parts hoard so added them to my wheel nut's


and applied a few coats of polish



ive also considered selling my 530i as i don't give it much use but then i kick myself and remind myself as to why i have it "sold my last 2 E39's in the past & regretted it within days"

Looking great Ian.


My only suggestion would be to fit some wheel spacers on the front as the wheels look like their sat in the arch more compared to the rear.

thanks Jay, ive thought about spacers but i like to play with the coil-overs and i'm to scared of catching something on full lock?

then again, that said :rolleyes:

 ive found that the height i have my car sat at just now does clear all speed bumps ive came across so maybe a subtle 15mm spacer could be an option. 



how it sit's just now
