My third E39! :)

Result!! The cooler arrived today and it's identical to the ATF cooler that came off. £85 well spent and hopefully I can get it fitted Saturday B)

Well it was a month yesterday since I machine polished my 39, on which day the gearbox oil cooler decided to empty its contents on the floor!

Having struggled to find a new cooler I'm now all sorted. £85 for the cooler, filter I was supplied was the wrong one so ended up at ECP yesterday afternoon in desperation as I had vowed never to use them again. After three attempts they gave me the right one

Aside from a little sludge the oil pan was clean, no metal filings which was good news.

So now I have a new cooler, filter, fresh fluid and new coolant - and an E39 outside my house for the first time in a month.

It's just a shame it needs cleaning again 0fb6a016bc82f83a7e7bfafbe2d888fc.jpg

Having had some technical graphite trims for about a month (thanks Scott) I actually got around to fitting them today.

So pleased with them!!

Thanks Mick. It is looking nice. I just wish I could change the silver paint to another colour just as easily!

Now the car is fully mobile again, it was time to get it clean. So snow foam, wash and a quick wax with Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax.

She shines up quite well
