    I've got a space available, but it's up near Northampton.

    E39 530iA Sport Touring

    2002 530iA Sport Touring. Topaz blue paintwork with heated black leather seats. 135k miles on the clock, MOT until Jan 2022. Plenty of recent work done, including: - MOT - replaced front wheel bearing - Cam cover and gasket replaced - Serviced - Two new rear tyres since the MOT - Mk4 DVD nav drive with updated map - 16:9 screen replaced - Front bumper resprayed - New arch liners - Four new OEM bootlid struts - New battery Spec includes heated front seats, widescreen sat nav, 3.5mm aux input. Doesn't suffer from the usual E39 rust issues, and is in good overall condition. Two minor faults for the next owner to rectify: - a PDC sensor needs replacing - the glass tailgate switch needs replacing I've owned the car for a year, and have barely used it. It's currently sitting in storage with a trickle charger. Overall a great example of what's becoming a rare car now! £2995. Currently in storage in Long Buckby, J16 M1.

    Did you get the pump to match the steering box too?

    Alternatively, you could try highlighting what you want to print, selecting Print and seeing if you have an option to ‘Print Selection’. That will depend on your browser.

    The easiest way would be to highlight the text and copy it into a Word document, and then print that.

    I can store that for you for less, if you decide to go down that route.

    Temp gauge

    Funny, isn't it. Put it in to CPC a few weeks back, who said it's cooling just fine but probably a cluster issue. I, like you lot, don't buy that. Will investigate imminently as I want to change the car for something else, and would always prefer to sell a car with no faults.

    Temp gauge

    The temp gauge in my 530i reads at the first white line during normal use. It's been plugged in, and it's sitting at the correct temp at that point on the gauge. All my previous have sat at the 12 o'clock position. However, on warm days in traffic it'll get hot. Yesterday when it was 29C ambient and I was in London traffic, I got the Coolant Temp warning on the dash. Put the blower on at max heat and it drops back down. So two questions: 1) Should it sit at 12 o'clock like my other ones have? 2) It is really getting hot in traffic, isn't it?

    They're the official BMW winter wheel option! But yes, it does make it look a bit like an old CID car.
