    It just gets better.

    Have a word with Ian before you buy a new panel, unless of course it's obviously irreparably mashed...

    I'd consider £700 a rip off, but not circa £400. Take away the VAT and the rest is easily accountable considering the cost of the oil and filter kit, plus a couple of hours labour to do it properly with the appropriate equipment which extracts all the oil, not just what falls out when removing the pan and sump bolt. It'll be a one-off job and certainly something I wouldn't attempt in my garage or on the driveway.

    Remote central locking not working

    No alarms on our ex-Japan E39s...

    Remote central locking not working

    My remote works for a few weeks, decides to take a rest for a few days, then works for another few weeks. Good batteries in both key fobs. No rhyme nor reason and I'm not that bothered...

    Project bites off more than can chew

    I looked at the first couple of photos and that looks suspiciously like the BMR workshop, with Barry in the background! Further down in your blurb, I read that it is! Quite a way from Camberley...

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    More info please!

    1980's Motorshow photos.

    My dad used to work for Smiths Industries (motor division) based in Cricklewood, North London, back in the day. Spent a lot of his time in the 70s and 80s representing the company on their stand at motorshows in Europe and worldwide - Tokyo and Chicago in particular from memory. I also remember going to shows with him at Olympia and Earls Court. Probably got some photos somewhere.

    NE Meet - Sunderland - 04/10/15

    Maybe the wrong time of year Geordie... Anyhow, that's a lovely looking E39 that you have there.

    If the E39 hadn't been invented

    Love the plate - "FFS"... MOT expired in 2017 at only 117k miles. Presume it's no more...

    Great looking example Dan, I didn't know you used to run an E38. When was this?

    autobox fluid

    Yep, watch a video on it and it's a very exacting process and a bit scary (to me anyway!) My indie in Sussex quoted a bit over £400, including VAT, so £700 seems way over normal.
