    Door Sill Fixing

    There should be an insert for that tab. Depending on vehicle age either Nr.9 or 10. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=DL81-EUR-09-2002-E39-BMW-530d&diagId=51_2281

    New wheels don't fit-advice please

    Like already stated wheel offset (ET) is not your biggest problem. Those tyres simply have too big diameter for E60/61. It doesn't matter if you have 17" or 22" wheels as long as the tyre circumference is correct for the vehicle.

    Roof strips flaking, what's a solution?

    New parts are about 100€ for both sides ready prepped. Then either paint them yourself or drop to a paint shop. Then remove the old ones and install new. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=DL81-EUR-09-2002-E39-BMW-530d&diagId=51_2260 https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-530d-lim/repair-manuals/51-body-equipment/51-13-trim-parts-covers-handle-strip/Be1Sp7J

    What are the steps in inpa to test pusher fan

    Usually active code from aux fan will prevent AC compressor activation.

    Most likely some of the sensors has a depleted battery. Trouble codes would reveal the problem. I don't see why this would be a MOT issue as most of E39's didn't even have that feature.

    E60 520d Idle issue

    Also check with diagnostics how engine coolant temp behaves. On these N47 engines coolant temp sensor is a typical failure.

    Part prices are a joke!!

    Ball joint dust covers are the weak point on Meyle parts. If those are still intact on old Lemförder parts salvage them if you are trashing the part.

    Rose bush tool

    With this price of quality tools I don't see much point fabricating your own. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-Series-5-6-7-X5-Rear-Axle-Ball-Joint-Rose-Bush-Removal-Installer-Puller-tool/264547057619?fits=Car+Make%3ABMW&epid=6017015406&hash=item3d983bbfd3:g:OtAAAOSw8A1acvCo

    So what parts are you talking about? Front tension struts and lower arms?

    Do you let your better half drive your BMW? :)

    Why wouldn't you? Then I guess it's just a matter of choosing your better half.

    Fitting E38 wheels

    All I can say, just do it. Slightly off topic but the wheel style is the same. A few days ago new original Style 32 wheels were still available available for a reasonable price. https://www.leebmann24.de/bmw-alufelge-radialspeiche-32-9j-18-et-32-silber-ha-bmw-5er-e60-36116761997.html .

    What colour

    Paint sticker should be on the front turret. And like said can be found with VIN on mdecoder site. The most usual metallic black colours: Sapphire Black (silver sparkle) and Carbon Black (blue sparkle).

    Retrofit rear heated seats E61

    Only if you want the correct instrumentation lighting (Terminal 58G) for button lighting. And actually that signal should already be somewhere in the center console. Wire colour grey/red. .

    Retrofit rear heated seats E61

    I thought of that but as I understand it the rear seat heater has in-built timer limit how long it stays activated. At least that's how it works on my E53. And actually if you take the supply from the rear fuse box from the fuse location for charging sockets it's terminal 15 supply (ignition on). .
