    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

    Put mine on a slow trickle for 3 days and all appears to be well at the moment.

    OK just been informed its 2 years which is pretty poor given Bosch do 3 years on their entry level batteries.

    Yeah she is but I don't really miss her. The M5 is better......... Alpina was comfier. Like a Mercedes that could actually take a corner but the M5 is still better

    Yeah I know comfort seats as well. Bit pricey given the miles?! Yes
