    E61 underfloor trim 7896625

    Looking for part numbers 7896625 and 7897144
  2. Edit - found out today that part 7896625 is also needed
  3. Hi This has probably been asked before but a quick search came up with nothing. Have got a bumper and diffuser, £100 from ebay. All good apart from a dent at the top of the diffuser. Good price but there is no way this could be fitted to my car, paint is terrible. So, I'm assuming im going to also need the metal crash bar. Anything else? The PDCs are a different size but i have the pre LCIs ones and the loom. Cut and splice job on the loom? Thanks in advance

    Three E34s and numerous E39s later, I have finally moved on and have got myself an E60/E61. A 2008 black on black on black 520d Touring with a few nice options, but the best one is heated Comforts with ventilation £3800. Picking up Thursday. Pics to follow! Edit - pics below and they ain't Comforts

    Other parts ive bought - timing chain cover gasket, HPFP and sump gasket ^Bought the above cover and gasket from Sytner, half the price of ebay!
  7. So yesterday, while having an MOT the compressor decided his life was too much and died. So of course that left Kwik Fit with no option but to fail the car with a dangerous defect. I had to get recovered home...:/ About 15 mins ago I went to move the car and the compressor decided he'd made a mistake and wanted to work again! Anyone got a suggestion as to whats going on? Compressor itself, or relay??

    E39 Touring handbrake rebuild?

    Cheers bud
  11. The Touring as failed on a weak handbrake. Not surprised it was an advisory on last two MOTs where they adjusted it as much as they can to increase the strength. So, anyone know what I need to do to sort.

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    The lies and exaggerations printed about Brexit and Trump have really opened my eyes to the extreme political bias of the media, Inc. Facebook, Twitter, Google. Huge media corps led by globalist leftists intent on censoring conservatism.

    Thanks for that. I might as well get it done. Need to find the part number. I'm going to be keeping this car for years lol

    So have bought these: There is nothing wrong with the new engine as far as I know but I'm still getting the chain done regardless. Total cost so far £1350

    It's a disaster, why the hell did I buy one. Where do you think the fillings came from? Did your chain break?
  20. My N47 hates me. Its destroyed itself. So, getting a new engine and going to get the chain replaced in the new engine before it goes back in the bay. What else is a good idea to replace whilst the bare engine is out. Gaskets, bolts?

    What mileage? I would get the chain done as a matter of course, just swallow the cost. That's what I wish I had done
