    Hello, I just landed

    Yep, the E39 tech section is by far and away the most 'subscribed to' of all the models, with over 286k posts! Of course that could be viewed in one of two ways...

    Hello, I just landed

    Welcome along Sid. Looks very tidy and the wheel style really suits it. I and several others here have E39s from Japan. Is yours in the usual excellent condition with low mileage?

    As far as I'm aware, my first E39 (now in the good hands of @chicaneuk ) is still on its original exhaust during its 21st year!

    Aluminium trim, dent fix

    I don't think so...

    E39 Sport to M5 bumper grille - fixings

    That's a BMW part number? And if tabs on the bumper break, can that be worked around satisfactorily?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    My key fob for the remote central locking has started to work again, curiously as soon as the average temperature has risen above near freezing for a good few days now. There's a decent battery in it too, replaced recently, so maybe it's something to do with the ultra sonic system used in the Jap market .

    Nice one! Surprised this sort of artwork hasn't been seen before on a lid, I've not seen one in 30 years of riding bikes..

    Hi, I’m new with a problematic E60

    Welcome along. Best to post all your E60 woes and queries in the E60/61 section here.

    Remaps on an V8, are they worth it?

    As far as I know, I don't think remapping does much or is applicable to the lumps in an E39 540. A bit old skool for that. I don't think there's much that can be done but happy to be corrected by someone more knowledgeable!

    Tesco Filling station, Aylesbury.

    I guess this could happen at any filling station, but I never buy fuel from supermarket outlets

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Crap - just noticed this morning that I'm going to tick over to 41k miles this month..!

    M5 SLS rear shockers

    Hi Peter - unless you've done so already, post this question in the E34 and/or M Powered Technical sections.

    I’m new! With a question for you all.

    Hi, try posting this in the General Discussion topic. It'll be seen by far more forum members, this is just the newbie intro area.

    E34 B10 Alpina

    You should certainly be on Mastermind if there's ever an Alpina specialist subject!

    Hi Folks......

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Best to post any technical questions in the E60/61 technical section further down the home page.

    E34 B10 Alpina

    So, not originally from, or for, the Japanese market perhaps... Could have been trashed and repaired in any other country...

    E34 B10 Alpina

    Odd, from that pic it looks like a left hooker.
  19. Hi Rich - post this query into the appropriate technical section here (F/G), you'll get a better response from owners of the vehicle. This is just an intro section.
  20.
