    That looks really clean.

    autobox fluid

    How about a gearbox old in years (18), but with only 40k miles of use? I'm assuming it's never had an oil service previously.

    EBay, Amazon? Or through Cotswold here for the real thing with a discount.
  4. What a lovely looking example. GLWTS!

    Oil Leak

    Well, let's hope that's the case here. Best start with an attempt at a simple fix!

    Oil Leak

    Never re-use previously (crushed) washers!

    autobox fluid

    Depends on the kit that the garage has available. My indie in West Sussex has the capability of extracting all of it - including from the torque converter.

    It just gets better.

    It would be, but that's not a cheap fix unfortunately. The other driver will more than likely need/want to go down the insurance route. But you never know...

    "So long and thanks for all the fish".

    I agree. I joined up here in 2009 and even when I become BMW less, because I most likely will one day, I would still drop past from time to time. I stopped riding motorbikes last year, but still frequent a couple of bike related forums.

    Even just clipping and dragging the bumper off like that wouldn't next more than a couple of mph, particularly with that big mass of a Volvo.

    Bloody hell - unbelievable! Was this outside your house?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Were you on one of their courses, or just 'borrowing' a space to do your own thing?

  15. Funny you should say that. Exact thing happened to a mate of mine on his way to work last week and knocked him clean of his Z800. The bus didn't even stop.

    E30 325i just sold for over 51K at auction

    Being on the BMWCC GB Whatsapp group chat, I saw this pan out. Just nuts...

    In need of a few more ponies..

    I agree with Dan suggesting those minor mods and accept the 528 for what it is - it really is no slouch anyway, and it's manual!. Just enjoy it an waft along in comfort, which is what E39s do best!
