    E39 523i SE Manual 1999

    The car is whisper quiet on the Goodyear’s and I did notice a difference but it had 10 year old tyres on before I changed!

    E39 523i SE Manual 1999

    £2250 ono a located in Sandhurst This has been a project car of mine over the past 2 years and I will miss it but I fancy a Z4M and so this has to go to make room. The car is in lovely condition and the paint is very good. It has been stored in my garage since I bought it and not driven in the rain. The carpets are like new and the wood trim is unmarked. It really benefits from a manual gearbox and is decent on fuel. It has the original purchase receipt and loads of history. Spec: Black leather with sport seats Sport steering wheel Sunroof OEM CD head unit I have upgraded the roll bars to sport ARB so a nice soft ride but without the roll Car has covered 115,000 miles with good service history, in my ownership I have replaced: 4 new Goodyear tyres Radiator waterpump Vanos seals Drive belt and tensioner Oil service Thrust arm bushes Rear subframe bushes Front drop links DISA refurb kit including new membrane Both headlights refurbished including new adjusters New spark plugs gearbox oil change diff oil change New rocker gasket Air filter/fuel filter wipers Much more but I will add as I remember There is one very small bit of rust on the rear end of the drivers sill which was started by a stone chip - the jacking points are rust free. No rush to sell and test drives are welcome (with insurance proof) I will not entertain taking lots of people out in the car.

    Late BMW F10 530i / D or Audi A6?

    I have almost the same car as you buy touring and with a manual box, it has been with me for 5 and a bit years and done 100k miles so I have been looking to change but I cannot find anything that takes my fancy. I usually spend 16-20k on a car and there isn’t much with the space and pace of the mapped f11 3.0 for that kind of money

    1998 528i Auto breaking

    Don’t suppose the fuel door including hinge are available and not bent? If so how much would you want

    525i - performance gains

    How about changing your diff for a lower ratio, that will improve acceleration and easy/cheap to swap. I did this on my 530. It is also supercharged and has no interior
  9. I have a set of aluminium trim from my 2011 f11 I’d be interested in swapping... only issue is my car is a manual, I’m guessing yours is auto?

    Boring wander around the garages

    The early f10 was available as a 523 & 528 with the 3.0 n/a 6 cylinder (auto & manual). My in laws had one

    My 540ix Bluestone Build

    Yes, wheels are a massive improvement. I’m not a fan of the standard bmw items

    Rebuilding my 530i... join me :) - Shout to WAITEE

    Fantastic work. I got myself a spare rear subframe from the scrap yard for new bushes and a clean up then lowered just the subframe to give the rear and a good going over. Let me know if you need the old subframe as I have no use for it now

    Touring rear suspension dropping whilst parked

    I have had the arnott bags on my f11 for the past 4 years with no issues. I’ve also just put them on my friends e39. Quality is excellent

    F10 525d 3.0 economy

    My 3.0 525d average over the last 50k miles is 40.2. On a run I can get 45 mpg but that’s about as good as it gets. I calculate the mpg between fill ups and it’s usually 40 or there abouts. I do mixed driving with quite a few short trips in there too. Car is remapped to about 260hp but it does have a manual gearbox

    Cruise control braking facility?

    I’m quite sure all f10/11s have it. My 2011 plate manual has it. My 530d e61 had it too
