    It's a good watch. Loved the 750i build. Also love the way he takes them on the Autobahn after and maxes out the speed. Unbelievably talented mechanic.

    Glad to be a part of the history of the car Was chuffed the sill corrosion wasn't too bad.

    There are no words to describe the pure awesomeness of this project. Kudos kudos kudos. And when you're ready to sell, let me know.
  5. That plug is redundant, not needed

    It's shit but ....... I sold my 520d in 25 minutes. Can't beat it for coverage
  7. Haha, yeah, I'd had enough. After spending £2500 on engine repairs in the last 2 years enough was enough. I'm now BMW less for the first time since 2008 I have leased a new Golf 8 1.5 Life...£250 a month, £250 down. No repair bills! The ICE is amazing - it's the same on the whole range from the Life to the R. Impressed but hankering after a 5 to tinker with.

    Car sold to an awesome mechanic. Goodbye 520d. You looked great but cost me a fortune. I am now BMW less for the first time since 2008.
  9. A mechanic bought the car, great guy. To get it running he cleared the DPF by doing something down the right hand side of the engine with a big screwdriver. Still leaking injector but the car was able to drive and he drove it home.
  10. Thanks. That would cause the loss of power?

    E39 mileage register

    I have no idea how my old 540i made it to 206k on the original chain guides. Pure luck.
  12. Lovely n47 has another problem. Under acceleration, particularly when going up hill, there is no power. Took off engine cover, the injector closest to the front of the engine has oil coming through, bubbling at the base Easy fix of new injector or deeper problems? What ya reckon.
  13. It's good, no doubt. The screen definition is loads better and all the old functions and CCC screens are still there, but now in wide-screen.
  14. It was great, no hassle, no fees.
  15. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114832587836 That is just the starting price, willing to strike a deal for my BMW5 buddies. Had a respray only a month ago, it's complete and comes with arch liners, 1 aero tray and wing mounts for anyone wanting to upgrade from an SE. Forget what you may read on certain websites, SE liners etc do not fit a Sport bumper, they can't be just 'trimmed'.
