    540i Sport Saloon - M25 Tues (Jap Import)

    So it does - using a full size monitor helps! I wasn't refering to the 540 badging, rather 540 being part of the registration.

    A lot of great work there. Well done and keep it up.

    I though that was my old one for a minute - can't quite make out the registration, but it doesn't appear to say "540".

    Wheel Spacers - Pros and Cons?

    I want to fit 10mm spacers all round (if I can get them that small, maybe 15mm at a push if they have to be) and have seen here that H&R are a respected brand. However, can there be any issues related to their fitment, and can they be more likely the thicker the spacer? Did some YouTube research the other night on the subject and all sorts of issues seem to be potentially waiting in the wings: Upsetting steering geometry - radius scrub - hub balance - steering wheel judder - uneven tyre wear and probably a few others I've missed/forgotten. So, what are people's experiences here if you've fitted them - particularly on your E39? Good, bad or indifferent? Thanks

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Glad to have been of service then!

    Blimey, when did I do that?!

    New 520d owner with problems already

    Welcome along and sorry to hear of the problem with the car so soon. If you've not done so already, copy your text into a new thread in the appropriate Tech Section, further down the home page. It will get much better coverage there and hopefully a few responses. Good luck.
  8. I think that maybe they suit the tourer better than the saloon. Plus you've got the colour right and ties in well with the rest of the car.
  9. You know what Dan - I'd keep it on 66s, it really does look great like that.

    My Dilemma

    I got a quote from WBAC for a car we wanted to trade in and tried them on the off chance. A very competitive price was offered but the figure plunged rapidly when I mentioned one minor wheel scuff and a few tiny marks from stone chips on an otherwise immaculate and low mileage vehicle. Not worth it unless you're desperate.

    Newbie from Inverness

    No, the trip didn't happen due to the Loch Ness marathon being cancelled. Rebooked for this year.

    Stud conversion

    I bought a kit with two such headless bolts for that purpose. Each end had a slot for a flat head screwdriver.
  19. Looks damned lairy that does!
