    Of course it's [too] expensive. But we live in a world where people that can, will.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    That'd be my guess but pretty good mileage so not too upset.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Forgot about MOT date, got slotted in as an "in between" appointment yesterday, failed it on [rear] tyres. Dealer couldn't get any the same so had to phone around a dozen or so outlets. Fitted by 9:45 this morning and retested by 11:00. Bit of a mad rush but all's well now. Should kick myself to check them more often than once a year - they looked fine from what you could easily see but they had worn in the middle. Advisory on front "torque reaction arm bushes" and brake flexi hoses so a little more work to be done :)

    Over the weekend, replaced the fronts discs and pads (wobbly discs after not great mileage) and provided a motorway / cross country taxi service. Clocked past 100K miles in an aged but great car.

    Innovadrive NXG-39 / OEM look Double DIN Fascia

    @DennisCooper thanks for the info; seems crazy that the install is so bespoke!

    Innovadrive NXG-39 / OEM look Double DIN Fascia

    What is for sale is a faceplate with buttons that are [now at least] for aesthetics only. I'd imagine you could keep the speakers if you ran extension cables from the ISO connector on the back of the headunit to the boot [where the DSP is] so you could connect up to the speaker loom. Whether that's a sensible choice is up to you.

    I thought it’d be expensive but you’ve even exceeded my expectation. I’m sure you’ll sell some but not to me

    The design Dennis has shown looks to be flush with the dash (something that I’m sure is high on the list of the OEM look priorities). Thus, the space behind is going to be as big as BMW originally provided which is not suitable for standard or deep size units with optical drive mechs. The Alpine and Parrot units pictured are shallow depth/mechless and fit perfectly. @DennisCooper any news on availablity?

    Best places to sell......

    Damn, that makes me even sadder :( GLWS

    I agree with duncan; as stock as it can be will give the best chance of a sale (especially as everyone's now pointing out future classic potential [which remains to be seen]). I almost did bite and see if an M5 could be for me :)

    E39 530d manual, Revs randomly capping on motorway

    Sadly any supplier can sell a dud; after all they're just shifting product from supplier to customer. They will not have even opened the box. Good to hear the care is once more on the road.

    Forgive me for being blunt but a ballpark figure was sought and all you gave was excuses as to why it will be expensive without providing an answer. Personally I’d have thought an answer of “still being worked on” would have been better

    If you haven't realised what Dennis has worked on, it is a double DIN adapter with "fake" buttons. The fact he's currently running an Alpine unit is not really relevant; the first shot used a Parrot unit too. It's purpose is to maintain OEM looks when fitting a after after-market head unit.

    Looks great. Will keep an eye on future updates!

    For anyone that cares....

    It's good in that there's very little bullshit though it feels a little awkward with the owner.
