    Newbie alert

    Hi and welcome along. If it's a tech issue (and not operator error!) post the question in the E39 tech section which is listed in the home page.

    New E39 owner

    Welcome along. Looks in good nick and with very low mileage for its age.

    DIY oil change using extractor pump

    I'd be worried about shoving too much piping down the dipstick tube and getting jammed somewhere in the bowels of the engine!

    Vauxhall Out, SEAT In!

    After running two faultless and trusty Zafiras for 16 years between them, now was the time for an update. There are so many good new car deals about at the moment and I'd been considering its replacement for a month or two. Needed to be an SUV style vehicle (Mrs L prefers the elevated position) but don't need something the size of a tank. In the end we decided on a SEAT Ateca, an FR Black Edition to be exact. Well chuffed, picked it up last Saturday and what a great package - looks good too on the black 19s under the white bodywork. All the bells and whistles that we need and a very sweet 1.5 turbo unit mated to a 6 speed manual box.

    New here - E39 540i

    Welcome along - good to have another E39 540 in the fold!

    Rebuilding my 540i... join me :)

    All credit to you, a really good start. As a 540 owner myself I'll follow this with interest. Being an ongoing project, it may be best to ask a Mod to put this in the projects section, elsewhere in the forum.

  12. My eldest daughter bought this for me last Christmas and I've finally got around to trying to install it. I had my doubts about it when I opened it, but kept them to myself as she was so excited, bless her, that I could have DAB and phone connectivity in my "old banger BMW"!! I can pair it to my phone and the unit does what it says it does, but nowhere in the instructions does it talk about how to actually channel either the DAB function or phone through the car's radio and speakers. It just says it will play wirelessly through the car, like magic I suppose. Anyone had a similar gadget that can give me some pointers? Thanks

    DAB Radio - Should This Work In My E39??

    Thanks Dave, I'll give it another bash!

    The new motor.

    Would love to go on an extended continental road trip in something like that!

    E39 M5 Individual - a One of a Kind?!

    Could have been re-registered I suppose...

    Throwback from 2015

    I did't realise that you owned two E39s at the same time. I guess the tourer is the same one that you have now.
  17. I know that the track and TF is open, but no idea about hotels. We won't be going this year, regardless.

  20. Hi, that was from our summer 2019 visit. Been every year since 2012, bar one. If it's you first time you'll love it. Where are you staying?
