    Buying advice for F11

    I really like it - I really wanted a petrol 6 pot with a manual in an F11 but gave up looking. The n57 with a manual box is quite a nice combo

    Buying advice for F11

    I have a mapped 3.0d f11 with a manual box and its decent when up and running but 1st gear is quite short. I am sure the auto is better in every respect but I just prefer manuals. I quite easily average 40-45mpg with lots of short journeys. I got the car with 40k miles and its now knocking on 100k. I recommend oil changes every 8-10k and I will be getting the chains checked when it hits 100k miles.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I noticed the rear footwell was soaking wet, resealed the door membrane as the other side did the same thing about a year ago... it was completely loose. I also did an interim oil change (try to do this every 8k miles). Thought I may as well do the gearbox oil too while I was at it, nice and smooth now

    Most reliable luxury car, F10

    Great cars, I’ve had my 525d (3.0) for getting on for 5 years and nearly done 100k. It’s had glow plugs, clutch and flywheel, air bags on the rear suspension and egr. I don’t think that’s too bad. I have absolutely no plans to change it
  7. Do you have the drivers kick panel trim still? Also a drivers door seal in good condition?

    I have my F11 so I'm still in the club! I had a 530 manual sport tourer a few years ago but just couldn't gel with it - it never really felt quite right. I still have my old 530i (purchased back in 2009) and it is hopefully going to be supercharged very soon. It has done about 15 track days now and such a great car.

    I like how the SE wheel makes it feel like a classic BMW to drive but I like the sport wheel with the manual gearbox in the 523. Im giving the touring to a friend to replace his Volvo, I don't have space to keep it sadly (I do have 2 E39's already)

    Just standard SE with leather, intensive screen wash, auto wipers... it did have a sport wheel but I robbed it for my 523 https://i.postimg.cc/KjXjfGdw/IMG-7868.jpg

    There’s a little bit of lacquer peel on 2 panels and a little bubbling on the arches but nothing around the jacking points. It was a very cheap car that needs a little tidying up so I’m not too fussed. I just can’t stand these cars being scrapped!

    Bought another e39- again

    its done several trips now - its got a wheel speed sensor fault and cam sensor too. No overheating or running issues. The rocker gasket is pissing out oil but that's a nice easy fix. One saved from the scrap yard I think

    Bought another e39- again

    So I had the opportunity to buy a 528 touring with over heating issues very cheap... turns out, the car got hot and was shut down - it then wouldn't restart with suspected low compression. I got the car trailered to my house and started work. It turns out there was no fuel at all. I popped a new radiator and water pump in to see If it was worth saving and it is as sweet as anything, really smooth and powerful. Anyway...
