  1. Thanks James - looks like a broken finger but otherwisw all present and correct. Andy - yup would be interested chap. Let me have the full pitch bud Mark - as above but not what im initially looking for and a little budget but could always be tempted i guess!? Cheers D
  2. Hi all, been a while since my last post. Just thought i'd release some of my misery with some forum therapy. Some tit in a defender travelling too quick took my 530D out on Friday morning while driving towards Penn Festival for a top weekend - not to be. Completed smaked in all the drivers side and was written off within a few hours of being towed away - grr! Insurance have made an offer so im now in shopping mode once again. After owning 2 E39s im going to look for another so i'll be doing the usual autotrader/ebay/forum/pistonheads searching. I dont want to spend any more than £3k and there seems to be a lot out there under this. We'll see eh. Cheers all!

    Remote control door keys

    Yes you can, DIY guide here: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=315311 The other option is, currently your car is coded to cancel the alarm by remote only, you can go to any garage/ person who have the diagnostic tool/coding tool to code your car to cancel the alarm by remote and key Big thanks John!

    Remote control door keys

    Any know if the battery can be replaced? My second key has lost its charge - which renders it useless because if you open the car with the door-lock the alarm goes off and you cant cancel it.
  5. Im near Maidenhead if anyone fancies a beer/coffee sometime

    Hard drive capacity

    Yup - treat yourself to a new hard drive: you'll need to find out wether yours is SATA or IDE. Check out http://www.novatech.co.uk for ideas of prices and sizes. If you get stuck let me know bud.
