    Condensation inside headlight

    Mine has the false top caps, due to the rain I’ve not had chance to get the bumper off to reach the bottom of the units, so did the hair dryer again for an hour or so then put 50g of silica gel in an bag and taped it behind the cover through the wheel arch , it’s lasted about 2 weeks but no covered in condensation again due to the rain , need to swap the gel bags over as guessing they’ve done their job and the dryer again, bummer having no bloody garage ,

    F10-upgrading subwoofers

    hey surprised to see another pp62 owner. ive got one fitted alongside focal ifbmw speakers and sub. tbh at the moment the default tunes weren't nothing wow. reading into they were made to be used with the default speakers. part of me wishes I tried with them to see what it was like. Ive had mine coded to hifi. it helped reduce the overpowering bass . currently in process of getting it booked with an audio shop to have them fit a sub and then tune it all up. fingers crossed I wont be disappointed

    Condensation inside headlight

    My cap doesn't seem to come off. I don't think it's a cap. Mine has a small amount of condensation. Do I just drill a hole from the top? Sounds like a bad idea.

    m67d40 vs n57d30

    Can be done with original E39 530d M57 engine with some mods. Just check below in the project section.

    I’m with the OP on this, shampoo, bodywork conditioner, carnuba wax, ffs it’s more expensive than the wife’s six-weekly trip to the hairdressers!

    Was this you?

    That’s ok, I’m a total mongrel anyway, born in Lancashire, grew up in the East end of London, educated in Essex and moved to Central Scotland 30 years ago, Heinz 57 if ever there was!

    B10 suspension refresh

    Cost is approx £1,500inc for the full kit, bear in mind you need to have the correct PNs for springs & dampers. Fitting will be extra unless you DIY plus any bushes etc that need replacing.

    Oil/burn smell after oil service

    It's rife IMO. How the insurance companies don't require some corroboration from the vehicle owner as to what was actually carried out I'll never know. Complicit most likely.

    m67d40 vs n57d30

    Sorry, even E60 FL models still have m57 engines.

    m67d40 vs n57d30

    Beginning of E60 definitely was m57 not n57, and your mechanic sounds a bit of cowboy/story teller.

    m67d40 vs n57d30

    He said that it will be easier to swap n57 than m67, because not need to change the engine sledge. He also said that it would be easier for him to do the best from the beginning of the e60 production because it is CAS I. Because i want make it an engine 320bhp and 700Nm. I plan to make a project out of my e39. Regards Marcin

    Condensation inside headlight

    Couldn't agree more. Ridiculous really.

    Condensation inside headlight

    I’ve left the top cap off mine completely and no issues. It’s poor that I need to do that to stop it getting wet inside such an expensive part.

    I would be aware washing up liquid does a good job of cleaning but the de greaser in it can strip off any wax polish you've put on the car!

    E38 4 Pot Brake Adapters

    The fronts on these are 4 pot from memory so I guess it just depends whats needed. I had a quick check on ebay and they seem to be popular for E30 and Sierra upgrades too.

    High mileage 525d 3.0d advice

    I am over the moon with the car for the money it's been looked after very well indeed with plenty of options.

    Wasn’t what I had in mind but I like your thinking.

    High mileage 525d 3.0d advice

    I think you got a great car for small money. Higher mileage is no problem if well cared for. People tend to look for low mileage cars, thinking they will be in better condition, but that depends on so many things. Recently, I went to see a 535d GT with just 48,000 miles and FSH. I was expecting an immaculate car, but it had been driven around London for most of it's life and evidently abused and neglected far more more than my current 115,000 miler. CAPS valuations and so on are commonly used to determine resale value, but they don't take actual condition use into account. The wife's 65 plate 320d with masses of extras in superb condition and full dealer service history came for a steal, because it had 130k miles on the clock. It's a fab car, for a fraction of what you would expect to pay.

    Latest dig dash format

    BTW: car delivered, it has the latest dash and all the BMW connected services. Ive only had a it a few days and have yet to really understand all the settings - but im v happy with it!! I'm going to look into coding to see what other options are available. Only have one shot as the rain hasn't stopped.

    You lot are just taking the p#ss now [emoji23] Seriously, put a couple of squirts of washing up liquid in a bucket of warm water, and wash your car. It'll clean it nicely. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
