    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I've seen these gel character plates - they're okay but I much prefer and always use standard acrylic plates on any vehicle I have. The guy who makes mine up cuts to minimal legal size as determined by myself, plus with no borders, markings, flags etc. His dealer reference, which has to be on there by law when making road legal, is minimal and hardly noticeable.

    Just noticed that your rear end is de-badged. Did you do that Dan, or was it like that when you bought the car?

    Vehicle Stats

    Well, I checked one of our other two cars and the recorded mileage of 29,122 on the main header is correct at the last MOT in March this year. The 540's last MOT in December should show 37,001 miles, but reflects the 55,000 Ks that it came into the country with in 2015 as miles!

    In a way, "sparing no expense" could be viewed as correct if the car failed its MOT that often, fixing it for another year!

    Popped my 540's reg in. OK with MOT history, mileage waaay over what it is. I suspect the original KM figure when imported has been used.

    Welcome to the forum. Good pics there and certainly looks a good 'un. As E39Mad above has said, it's an E61. The saloon version is an E60.

    Welcome to the forum Give BMR Performance a call, they're in Turners Hill, West Sussex. If they can't do this repair, they will certainly know someone who can. http://www.bmrperformance.co.uk

    Wander round the local BMW dealer

    Yep, like the 8 for sure. And I agree with Bri's comment above.... most cars are too techy these days, making them uneconomical to repair in years to come.
