    Sorry mate it's a 2002 e39 525d
  2. Been looking for a manual sport touring for while, I have seen couple of none sport high mileage but non in sport? Those of you guys that own one, did you buy it because it came up or were you looking for one if so how long did look before you found one?? They seem to be harder to come by than 6 speed 540s or am I just not looking right? I have given up at the moment and have decided to go e60/61 manual touring instead.. Currently have couple of e39s (540i sport,530d sport and an 525d sport) will start to sell these and buy e60/61 530d touring.

    E39 530d Touring MANUAL Who Owns One

    I currently have a 525d manual sport which has been mapped also have a 530d sport which isn't mapped but even with the map feel it's a bit underpowered.. I think a 530d with a map just about right power for me..

    I think your right, At this present time once my cars are sold the way it's looking I will probably settle for sport with leathers and decent alloys..

    E39 530d Touring MANUAL Who Owns One

    Hi dennis I was considering the 6 speed conversion but I couldn't find anyone that would give me an estimated figure.. i might go go for the repair, i don't think it will Need a full rebuild, very few boxes need a complete rebuild. If you can get the right transmission place then they should be able to sort it out.. i have had few with reverse issues which all turned out to be the bridge seal.. The last one was the 760li I purchased off this forum from m535man with reverse issue. Was being quoted £3k-£6500 for rebuild, eventually sorted for £250

    Pre facelift headlights

    Was just looking for standard ones mate.. just need to be on my car whilst mines are being repaired..looking for less than £30 as I'll probably chuck them away once done.. seen a set off ebay for 15+ postage
  11. Hi guys time has come for me to send off my M Parras to be refurbished so will need a cheap set for a week or two. I have seen a set of 15" style 31s locally, I think these came on pre facelift 520i to I think 528i. My concern is would they clear the calipers? Has anyone had these fitted to a 530d?

    Why do for sale ads.....

    I do it for the same reason as Duncan said, Cloning.. i had someone copy my reg a good few years back when it was up for sale and ended up used in a robbery.. luckily for me I was at a charity event at the time with a couple of councillors, the mayor, a assistant chief Constable and 100 other people.. am more than happy to give out reg when requested..

    Price for plastering.

    Price seems very high.. Meterials won't be more thank £100 for plasterboards, screws, tape, and couple of bags of multi finish.. i normally pay £80-£100 per day per plasterer.. that should be no more than a days job..

    Hi Dennis yes there seems to be a flat spot on pic 1.. I am having it fixed at a local engineering place who will Also polish and lacquer the lip/rim.. The centre cap is plastic so will have them painted along with the centre piece.. Rest of the wheels seem to be fine as I drove the car back 150 miles with no issues..
