  1. Mitchell Inglis are really good at accident repairs. When I had my old Topaz blue e39 sport a driver reversed into it while it was parked at my house. Thankfully they left all their details etc. I did a bit of research and requested that my car be repaired at Mitchell Inglis. So cannot fault their work. My car looked like new when I collected it from them. that must have been back in about 2009/ 2010 though

    530d touring in beige!!

    Those wheels actually suit the car really well I think. If you could live with the colour, it looks a damn good 530d and last owner for 16 years too.

    Adam's E39 Touring Project

    That’s awesome can’t believe that guy had 14 e39’s! What is he planning to do with them all? Looks like he had some nice ones in that fleet too.

    E39 530i Sport purchase - pics :)

    Sounds like a project Scott! What’s up with the front end? Looks like it has no springs?

    530i Auto gear box replacement....convert to manual ?

    Speak to Mackies Transmission in Glasgow they will tell which zf box will fit Scott.
  6. For the sake of £70 for both springs and about £100 labour bill to get them fitted. It would be wise to do so before the compressor fails in any way.

    Giving us a bad name......

    Bloody hell that poor guy didn’t stand a chance
  8. Left rear air spring replaced. £35 for the spring off eBay and £60 to get it fitted. Glad to have the car fixed and back to normal again.
  9. Left rear air spring has gone on my F11 520d after only 55k miles and 5 and a bit years old. These newer BMW’s are certainly not made very well...... my previous e39 530d managed 160k before one of the air springs started a small leak. Bought a cheap ebay air spring which hopefully will do the job? Planning to change the car soon anyway.

    Style 66s on my E34

    I used to have them on my old e34 TDS SE. I liked them on the E34, they had Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres on them and the grip was immense. It had a chip upgrade to so was about 180bhp. Bloody fun car to drive too.

    Just got my bargain Imola red E39

    Nice e39 sport at mucho cheapness too I loved my topaz blue 525i sport, not fast but enough to be involving to drive I found.

    FS: 2006 E53 X5 3.0d Sport - new service & MOT

    That is a nice x5 for not a lot of money. GLWS
  13. What happened to your touring Duncan?

    530i Sport Touring - rear dampers

    I replaced the standard e39 se Sachs suspension with a Bilstein B8 set up on my old 530d and also updated the rear subframe bushes and fitted an M5 arb with polybushes and at the front had H&R springs with the B8s and the standard arb with polybushes. Also fitted the staggered style 66s and the car handled so much better with that set up. Not harsh or crashy. Just firm but compliant. It sat only about 10mm-15mm lower than OEM sport height
  15. That looks too good to scrap. Always liked the baby 6 e36 se saloons.
