  1. Hi Not needed as I went for a different brace in the end I've not even removed it from the box yet. intended for e39 v8 engines these retail on ebay for around £400, weichers have a sale on at the moment and they're £350 shipped (carbon fibre version - carbon laid on aluminium; not to be confused with the all alunminium braces which are less expensive) I'm offering for £275 shipped so a decent discount!....and this is brand new!
  2. Lovely condition no rips or tears pick up from Crawley Ono £200

    Buying an e39 M5.

    Unless you have an ultra low miler sub 40k, and don’t intend to drive it, I’m unconvinced they’ll give a huge ROI in the future. in the 50k-100k mileage range they seem to start from ~£12k. Individuals and/or facelift cars seem to automatically be £17k+ Advertised prices are creeping up, but v.slowly. I suspect sale prices have not changed significantly except for the ultra low milers.

    My old sepia violet f10 M5 on autotrader

    It has an evolve stage 2 map, delimited and with cold start delete. (Running decat pipes); I supplied the oem air boxes and down pipes when I sold it. you could go for more power/torque ; I think the stage 2 map restricts it to protect the dct. Might want to upgrade the clutch if you do that though! Good platform to build on if you’re looking for even more power!

    I sold as I wanted something AWD and smaller.
  7. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201901234202351?atmobcid=soc4  My old f10 m5 competition.... only sepia violet f10 M5 in the country. putting out 740bhp pretty decent spec incl M performance exhaust, RK intakes, CF bodykit, vorsteiner bits, wider M6 alloys etc. with the upgrades and spec, you probably won’t get better for the price.
  8. These are rare as a combination and in e39 fitment.(bored out to 74.1mm) Freshly refurbed 2 days ago in brilliant silver with new Centre caps and M decals (from bmw not cheap eBay tat) tyres are Michelin Pilot sport 4 with good 5mm+ tread 18 x 8.5 et13 18 x 9.5 et25 tyres 275/35/18. 245/40/18 74.1mm bore you can get spacers/spigots to convert to other bore sizes these will bolt straight into an e39 M5 with no spacers looking for £1100 with tyres; £800 with out tyres and will consider splitting also. the ET13 offset on front gives great turn in and makes the car feel like it has a square offset selling as I’ve seen another set of wheels I want my original costs were wheels £500 tyres £400 refurb £300 boring out £100 badges £35 (rybrook Bmw) m decals £22 (rybrook bmw) £1357 in total

    They’re a cleaner look, though still not sure they’ll be on the car long term

    Lead time up to 4 weeks price circa £1900 imported it does need a lot of prep, labour costs - 25hours+ materials...
  13. Picked up some e38 style 37s and need to rebore the fronts. (18x8.5 et 13) as offsets are already quite low, so spacers not really an option. rears are 18 x 9.5 et 25 so I can get away with a spacer conversion anyone know any good areas in surrey/West Sussex?

    It still needs to be a family car. Looking at performance upgrades as well as some weight reduction. It’s had the following over the last few years: headers/100 cell cats & Dinan exhaust stoptech trophy calipers front / rear which are the lightweight version intrax coilovers uprated rear arb ; front/rear strut braces OS Giken LSD with: CF roof+f/r bumper carriers, front recaro pole buckets (maintaining stock seat belt points and have Schroth e39 harnesses that connect up to stock seat belt points - can easily reverse when kids in back etc.) & ESS 560 kit going in at the moment. BBS LMs being sold, thinking of changing for e38 parallel 18x9.5 square set up. Nothing else planned after that. Possibly CF bonnet & light weight battery. I doubt I’ve achieved more than a 100kg weight saving, some things you do because they’re cool.
