    New brake pads and discs

    Hello All, I need to replace my front brake pads and discs. Currently, I have Mintex pads and I'm not sure what discs I have. My mechanics recommends I put Mintex again, but I'm not so sure as I don't think they're good. I've always liked ATE but my mechanic said they're no good as he's always has had problems with them and then went onto say I should try JURID brake pads and discs. Has anyone tried ATE or JURID before? Which one would you recommend?

    Xenon Headlights

    Hello Marc, Thanks for the prompt response. My car is on 03 plate, it doesn't have headlight washers and i'm assuming the auto leveler is the thing where you can adjust the level of the head lamps. I have been told that when it comes to the M.O.T. it can be a problem as it may fail. Could you explain why it would fail? Currently, the headlights do take H7 bulbs and I thought given the price of the xenon headlights on eurocarparts it would be a simple replacement as all the wiring should be there. I will take some pictures of the current headlights including the wiring and post them on this thread. I'm getting old now and my eyesight isn't what is use to be and I feel as though I do need to upgrade the headlights as safety is my primary concern. Regards Naz

    Xenon Headlights

    Hello All, I am thinking about upgrading the headlights on my 5 series to xenon. I find it difficult driving at night, especially when the road markings are not very clear and the road lighting is poor. I have found some xenon headlights on the eurocarparts website (links given below) and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience in upgrading to xenon headlights and what to look out for. Any advice would be greatful. Left Xenon Headlight Right Xenon Headlight Thanks Naz

    Car rust repair above back bumper

    I've taken care of the car and it has served me well. I've not had any major problems, just general wear and tear.

    Car rust repair above back bumper

    Hello All, I managed to find a good bodywork specialist and got it repaired. The place is called VRG. Very good service and the price was not bad either. The total repair bill came to £216 (incl VAT), which was a little outside my budget. Here is a picture of the repair.

    Car rust repair above back bumper

    Hello d_a_n1979, I see what you mean. I suppose if new metal is needed then it requires welding. It makes sense now. Do you know of any good body shops in the Leeds/Bradford area? Thanks

    Car rust repair above back bumper

    Hello d_a_n1979 Could you explain briefly as to what the bodyshop will do? I'm not sure what you mean when you say it needs new metal. Will they melt some new metal into the rust hole? Thanks

    Car rust repair above back bumper

    Hi Luke, Thanks for the response. I would like the repair to be done properly as I intend to keep the car for a long time. I've had the car for nearly 14 years and it has served me well. I have been to one body shop and they said it needed welding and I wasn't convinced to what they were saying. If you know of any good reputable body shops in the Leeds/Bradford area that know what they're doing, please send me the details. Thanks
  12. Hello All, I'm in need of your assistance. There is a rust patch on the back of my car above the bumper and I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place in the Leeds/Bradford area that could repair it, so it looks as good as new. I have attached a couple of pictures. Please advise. Thanks

    Servicing Question

    Just make sure you take it to a reputable specialist. And make sure they use quality parts.

    Servicing Question

    I don't think it should. I've recently had my car serviced. On the dash board it said inspection 1 but I'd put it in for an inspection 2 as the difference in price was minimal.
