    E39 M5

    Looks very nice cosmetically, but with any E39 now, I'd be very concerned about what's underneath all the plastic on the underside.

    Off to vote for Nigel.

    What are you doing now?

    Just arrived at Acton (03:30) with a stone train from one of the Mendip quarries. Small one tonight, 28 wagons, 2,800 tons, 403 metres long. Got to sit here till 04:30, then taxi to Paddington for the first passenger train home.

    Lucky driver - Lorry wheel v car

    Saw one like this when I had a short spell between jobs and I did a bit of work for a bloke I knew with a recovery firm. I was sent to pick up a Transit van that had been hit by a Truck wheel. The driver was very unlucky as the wheel had hit the van head-on, dead centre and made a massive vee in the front and killed him. It wasn't a pretty sight inside the van after the Paramedics had left all their paraphernalia in there.

    George Best.

    Thought they'd have put a pint glass in his hand.

    Replacement folding wing mirrors

    I Reckon there's only one manufacturer of the M5 rep's. The two sets that I bought were from 2 different sellers but were exactly the same in the same boxes and both manufactured in Taiwan.

    RIP Niki Lauda

    Sad news, I had no idea that he was ill, you see him regularly on the F1 and he always seemed to look well.

    My new car!

    Sounds like you're really enjoying it. I'm hoping that the rumoured Tiguan R has appeared before my 240 BiTdi is due to be changed in March. If not I'll be getting another BiTdi.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I saw the NC500 on the television a few years back. I thought it looked amazing but it sounds like every man and his dog's on it now. I quite like the idea of hiring an F-Type R for the week and doing it.

    1998 E39 540 Touring - Manual Box - Potential Value?

    Surely there's only a very limited market for something like this though, I mean there can't be all that many people interested in a rusty 21 year old car thats been stood up for a couple of years and does 20 to the gallon around town, can there?

    E39 530i on eBay

    Looks nice, gearbox would put me off though.

    The E39 First World Problems thread

    The only thing that really annoyed me when I had mine was the handbrake (or the lack of)

    Stretch's 530d/S62 Sport Touring. Updated 16/05/19

    Yeah, great car, but not personally a fan of the tyres that look like they're about to pop off the rims. There again I'm an old bastard so not down wiv da kids, innit Bruv.

    E39 525d slow starter

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    E39 530i Sport purchase - pics :)

    Agreed about the trim, aluminium definitely doesn't go with Sand Beige, most of the dark woods are much better.

    Don't know about anyone else but the video's not working for me.

    Looking forward to seeing it after you've washed it. Don't think I've seen Slate Green with Sand Beige before, usually Black or Slate Green leather.

    E39, What annoys you.

    Yeah, loosening cap when changing brake pads.

    E39, What annoys you.

    Honestly can't say anything annoyed me about it when I had mine, it was a great car.
