    E39 525i Touring Japanese Import

    Wow, Congratulations on the purchase. I have just imported a 530i Saloon from Japan and looking for advice regarding the audio system. Whilst you may feel the car was not quite up to the immaculate description from the seller, I am sure you will be pleased when you look underneath. My one is in timewarp condition underneath, zero rust even on jacking points.

    Jap E39 Audio system

    I have recently imported a lovely time warp E39 530i from Japan, I have changed the clocks to UK ones but the widescreen nav has not yet been naturalised. I tried swapping the DVD nav drive from my M5 but the plugs are different. Can someone advise what is involved in swapping the stuff out and making it UK spec. I know its dated and crap but I want to try and keep it as original as possible.

    E92 m3 info

    Ive had both and their is no right or wrong answer. Both excellent. Old SMG in previous gen M3 was shite but DCT is a totally different animal

    How would you value an E39 M5

    Cash out now unless you are in it for the super long term!

    Its time.....

    All done including a vanos refresh (arse crack still seeping blood) Bearing were in really good shape as expected with minor wear

    Its time.....

    Ive got my E39 M5 in the workshop for a major mechanical refresh. Its been sitting about in the garage like a wannabe garage queen whilst I have been driving newer cars. Anyway, this lockdown nonsense has given time to reflect so I have decided that she is the only one, no more messing with younger models! Enough chatting nonsense, rod bearings are being done 100% as the internet told me so but my concern is the timing chain guides. The garage have done a vanos test and have advised doing the timing chain as the parameters are out a tiny bit on the exhaust side but "nothing to worry about" Is this a "must do" job like the rod bearings or not?????

    Anyone swapped an E39 M5 for a Golf Gti?

    Its happening in Edinburgh at the end of 2020 although wont be enforced for private cars until 2023 as I understand it. Sent from my SM-N976B using Tapatalk

    Dont do it. Keep it and sell it when its £20k+ If you must then but a MK5 Edition 30 or MK6 Edition 35 with low miles and it will hold its value and eventually start to appreciate. Sent from my SM-N976B using Tapatalk
