  1. A bit on the steep side, to put it mildly! https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202002197500188?quantity-of-doors=4&advertising-location=at_cars&transmission=Automatic&make=BMW&radius=1500&year-from=2000&year-to=2003&postcode=rh69lh&fuel-type=Petrol&sort=relevance&minimum-badge-engine-size=3.0&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&model=5 SERIES&maximum-badge-engine-size=4.5&page=1

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Was thinking that myself actually...

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Sure am, for the time being anyway. Trip to Essen at the end of March so looking forward to that and possibly Nürburgring again in September, plus all the usual summer meets.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Oil service, GVI and general health check at BMR Performance this morning. All is well...

    E39 M5's for sale

    I've seen quite a few at £15k plus recently. But are they selling? - some have been around for quite a while.

    You need to post this in the E60/61 tech section.

    Still unable to post photos.

    I used to be able to post photos directly from a memory stick, but not anymore as my storage filled up and there's no way to reduce it as far as I know. Anyhow, all I have to do now is upload the photo(s) into one of my albums and from there, into a post if I want to. Still fairly simple, give it a try that way.

    Just saying hi

    Welcome along, post any Qs in the appropriate tech section further down the home page.
  12. Well, I think we can put this thread to bed, so to speak...
  13. Anyway, I'd just like to say that I love my full history, fully sorted, low mileage, extremely clean and presentable.............. JAP IMPORT...!
  14. If you do your homework first and buy from a reputable dealer/importer in the UK, as I did, there's a very reasonable chance that you'll end up with an example far and away higher than an equivalent UK one. Sure, there's an element of the unknown at first but two years down the line, it seems to have worked out for me. No regrets at all and very proud to own and drive one of the lowest mileage and amongst the best condition-wise E39s of any flavour left in the UK today.
  15. That would've been a fast move from West Sussex to Lancashire!

    Hi new 5 Series F10, with some issues

    Welcome to the forum. For technical queries, it's best to post these in the appropriate technical section further down the home page. Better coverage with owners of the same vehicle.

    Insurance (Again!)

    Dead right there Steve - I call and haggle not just for the cars, but for British Gas Homecare, home insurance, annual holiday insurance. Without fail, the original renewal quote is always reduced.

    Rise up and join the revolution...

    I certainly agree that there's far too much choice out there, so much so that it becomes difficult to know what to use to clean/wash/buff up/restore which part of the car. For me I tend to stick to four or five products.

    Was this you?

    ... that leads me on to "weegies"....?!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Yeah, will keep an eye on that one out of curiosity, not because I want it! Walkers was where I used to go for servicing with my previous E39, but BMR opened up/moved nearer to me - both places are equally good, service-wise. Their (Andy Walker's) cars don't hang around long usually, see what happens.

    What do you reckon of the price of this Alpina..? https://walkersautotech.co.uk/used-bmw-west-sussex/bmw-e39-alpina-b10-v8-s-4-8-auto
  23. Absolutely donkey's years - one of my first memories of 'car stuff' names/brands back in the 70s when my dad was with Smiths Industries.
