    my e34 530 manual gearbox problem

    sounds like the clutch plate has broken up.if the pedal feels ok but you can only get gears when the engine is off thats the most likely culprit.

    M50 rattle/buzzing noise 3000rpm

    its the inlet manifold .Its because its plastic and at certain rpm it does resonate. Normal and nothing to worry about

    My excellent day, advice needed

    genuine bmw only.sills come in 4 quarters and are not cheap.i used rear arch repair panels from hadrian and one front sill from bmw to make up extensions.was about 80 pounds if i recall.have a look at real. oem. i did away with the jacking points and keep a cheap trolley jack in the boot.you may have to carry out repairs to the wings/inner sills as well.it will always be a bigger job than just welding a repair panel in.all the rust needs to be cut out.the good thing is that any rust is usually localised and the metal is nice and thick [unlike a couple of korean and japanese tin cans i had to weld at work recently]

    Replacement Sill Panels

    you can get hadrian rear arch panels,they have the rear bit of sill on them.i have just done one side of my car. i bought one genuine front sill section to make up extensions for the arch panel.the sill was 90 pounds and the arches around 30 each.still cheaper than another car.it would be very difficult to make up pieces from flat sheet because of the complex curves involved.
