    E39 M5, replacing front coil springs.

    ^^^ That is what I was after a detailed reply from someone who has done the job, thank you. I also read somewhere that the spring ratings depended on the amount of equipment fitted to each one. Ta

    Maybe you are right, there is no wire going to the top of the strut mounting nuts, will only no for sure when I take the wheel off. Loads of springs for sale online but when I enter the cars Reg No, it says "not suitable for my vehicle" I don't want to end up with the wrong springs on it.

    The car has a sport button on the dash so it has EDC, and apparently the springs in the EDC set up are different, and is why I'm having trouble sourcing springs for it, £200+ for two springs at the dealers, ideas folks?

    E39 M5, replacing front coil springs.

    Has anyone replaced their front coil springs recently, and can offer any short cuts in removing the struts, for instance is it possible after removing the top 3 nuts, and the pinch bolt, can the strut be removed from the housing after clearing the wheel arch without having to remove discs, hubs etc, I did it this way a good while ago on the 528i, but I'm aware of a slightly different set up with a V8. I'm not interested in converting to coilovers, or anything overs, just replacing broken coil springs, Ta.

    96,528i overheating when turning heaters on

    I don't know Ray, just glad it's been resolved, when the heater is turned on, normally you are effectively increasing the capacity of the coolent, but if it isn't circulating anyway!!!

    JIA Jensen FF 'Interceptor'

    An absolute classic, the Jensen I is in the same league as an Aston Martin DB6

    96,528i overheating when turning heaters on

    FWIW, just a bit of feedback folks, a new thermostat and housing have solved the overheating problem, the old one wasn't opening, so preventing the coolent circulating. Also the new stat came with a small bleed toggle valve on it, it was a Myle thermostat.

    Pubs shut, takeaway recommendations

    I have tried Sandgrounder, and Golden Sands which are local ales to me. Did a brewery visit to Whitbread Salmsbury, with the local fell walking club, ages ago, was good.

    Duncan, my local is a camera recommended pub, I was pulling your leg on the southern comment.

    ^^^ Not my local pub, or any other ale house that I'm aware, nor in the previous lockdown either, maybe take out beer is a Southern thing.

    I have had an Adnams ghost ship A/free, and was very impressed for an alcohol free beer, a world away from Laurie McMenemy's Kaliber, awful stuff.

    Yes, a few local, and micro brewerys round my way, Southport, offering their brews in the local pubs, which we are missing at the moment, bottled stuff even if good, is still no match for a draught beer.

    m535i power steering leak

    Also worth checking the brake servo piping, the bomb, and the regulator, which are also rely on the PAS pump, and fluid to work.

    Petrol, and diesel sales banned by 2030!

    Road pricing would only be fair if RFL was abolished for " normal" cars as well. It was/is a sweetener to get folk to buy EV's, once we have all made the switch, the government will need to get the money back somehow.
