    E39 15mm Hubcentric Spacers and Set of Bolts

    Thanks. The other pair are on the front of my 540, but the offset of the 65s is different to that of the 66s which I removed last year and the 65s on the back sit perfectly and don't need spacing.

    Le Mans 66

    Heard it's a pretty good film. Must admit I'd never heard of Ken Miles, the Brit that Christian Bales plays.

    E39 M5 Caterham Surrey 17 Nov

    Dark blue E39 M5, Caterham bypass 17 November, approx 4:30 pm. Certainly lacking an exhaust box, sounded brilliant! Then again Caterham High Street a few minutes later. We flashed and acknowledged.

    autobox fluid

    Just checked my quote from a couple of months ago. £430, parts and labour, including VAT. That's using Mobil ATF LT71141, along with the filter at £38, flush agent, conditioner, o- ring and gasket.

    Plastic sheds

    That looks realy neat, not how I would have imagined. Love the appearance of the 'slate/tiled roof'...
  7. Great photos and excellent work on the car.

    Nav screen dodgy

    Not with me, all sounds a bit odd! So, once warm, will function fine?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Sat here parked up in Crawely and Romesh Ranganathan just walked past, a few feet away.

    To all the newbies :-)

    Welcome to the forum. Plenty of good stuff here us for E39ers

    2002 E39 2L Petrol

    That looks really clean.

    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.
  14. 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.

    Hello new, I'm hello

    Welcome along!

    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.

    It just gets better.

    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.

    It just gets better.

    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?
  24. "Hang on lads, I've got a great idea,"
  25. 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.
