    E39 touring pulling under load

    Anybody done upper and lower rear arms? Is it a PITA? what symptoms did you have? previously I have done the lower bush thing and integral links but not arms but of a ball ache but I have the tool. Convinced its rear movement im getting and wondering if I should just bite the bullet and do the lot and subframe bushes again too.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Quite a lot. New number plates, centre caps and front arb bushes. Changed pollen, air and fuel filters. New vac lines - it now boosts from 1500rpm. Superficially looked ok but many quite perished. Huge difference. Still jobs to do. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Isn't there a classic racing movie downshift on the mulsanne straight for a pass? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Which pressure convertor affects low boost? 530d

    So to update this today i changed all my VAC hoses (bar the line that feeds the engine mounts as sound and was running out of time) some where collapsing and very crumbly Been for a spin and it seems to be boosting earlier and harder and will accelerate from about 1500rpm. Still smokes but will see if that improves after a good run. Need a bit more driving to be sure but feels much livelier! Happy days! Moral is check out your Vacuum hoses. Now if i can find the source of the self steering rear i will be very happy!

    It just gets better.

    Ouch! gutted for you! Be interested to hear how this plays out re value as i'm curious to know how the insurers would treat a previous cat n on value.

    E30 325i just sold for over 51K at auction

    ^ that's a different question - you bought because its what you wanted at a price you where prepared and able to pay and not in the hope it will make money - if it does that's a bonus

    I know opinions differ but at that sort of price at some point people are going to be stuck with cars they have over paid for, maybe not that one because of the mileage but i bet people are paying over the odds for stuff that isn't as good as it looks.

    Definitely a win both ways - i haven't read the T&C's only the price i saw on the screen vs the bid. However lovely it is though i think its too much

    Ford Capri...

    I don't think either of those could be considered a replacement. Needs to be like the gt86 or something. Rwd fun and affordable Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    The % wasn't that high (happened to see this one auctioned) something like 5% if i recall and of course the seller will pay a cut so imagine the auction gets 10% all in
