    Improving the brakes on a 540

    I thought 540s had the 324mm brakes pre and post facelift?? Sorry dan but have to agree with finch, red stuffs are sh1t. The yellow stuffs are much better option.
  8. Personally from what I have seen it all looks a bit gimcky and very much designed for touchscreen I don't think I will ever bother. Windows 7 is the best thing since xp. I have no use for a windows tablet as a i have an Asus transformer running cyanogenmod 10 which is bloody brilliant for most things. But when it is needed I have the quad core monster in the office.
  9. Enough MPG chat..... Need more pictures Raymond! That is one for the porn collection right there!!

    Marham - Big thanks great day

    You nearly got done by a fiat....pahahaha you need more power! 565 horses just isn't enough! On a less piss taking note! Rather jealous of those that got a few laps in the beast!! Its you fault Andy that iv been looking at e60s...albeit only the 535d Good to hear everyone had a good time! Maybe one day I'll own something worth tracking!
  12. Since Iv had the car the battery light on the dash would flash on start up and fade out quickly, slight problem yes. But never caused me any major concern. On Saturday night I was driving from Eastbourne to Kingston and half way through the journey the battery light came on and started flashing. I was a little concerned at this point. Another 20 miles and the light had gone out again?? I'm getting confused now. So I parked up in Kingston, went and spun some tunes in the nightclub and returned to my car after 7 hours. Started up no problem but battery light flashing again. Went and got some breakfast (it was 5am at this point.) after sitting outside McDonald's, waiting for my mate to grab the munch the Light was flashing still, but very faintly. Started the drive home and the light stopped flashing 10ish miles in. After having some sleep I went out and checked the battery terminals, both nice and tight. Get the multi meter out 13.5v at idle and 14v at 2000rpm slightly low but not tragic. (not sure if the light was on at this point but I don't think it could have been) I also checked the belt, nice and tight! Went out in her today and light was flashing again, then stopped AGAIN!!!! Dash menu voltage fluctuating between 13.2 - 13.5v (this is lower then the multi meter reads) So any of you amazing people want to tell me how to fix it without having to sell an organ for an alternator?! Thanks Chris

    Battery Light Flashing....sometimes!? Help!

    Not got much else left to sell....bloody BMWs! What sort of check would that be? Because Iv checked the output? Is it likely to be the regulator?

    I want a new M5

    Well once you have bought your self a new one andy you could always give me the e60
  15. After hearing the setup in Dennis' Touring at the Hayes meet i have been looking at different options for upgrading the SH1T E39 sound system. I already have; A single DIN headunit: JVC KD-SH1000 (old, but F**king excellent) 4 channel amp: Kicker IX404 (old but functional, reasonable outputs; 4x40W @ 4Ohms, 4x60W @ 2Ohms) Fusion Reactor Twin 12" Subs (from my early driving years, trying to sell.) Fusion Reactor Amp 450RMS (as above) Damaged Kicker 12" Sub in angled front box (i hope the box is usable, through ski hatch?) My plan is; Install the JVC HU with a Connects2/Autoleads Adapter.(MID moved to glovebox) or maybe fit the HU above MID. I will also get a Steering wheel interface. Install Kicker amp in boot where CD changer currently sits. Fed from 5v. preouts of the JVC (Front, Rear and Sub) Make/buy cable with ISO plug to go from Amp to factory speaker wiring in dash. £18 on ebay. This should supply each speaker with 40-50Watts from the amp. Build MDF door baffles for fronts. (Waiting for templates to arrive from CarlBM, Cheers for sending them buddy.) Last job will be to install the sub in the boot. I am more worried about improving speakers to start with. Question time.... (Hey Dennis) 1. What's the best route for cables to the boot? (phono's and speaker feeds) 2. Which speakers for MDF door baffles. 6.5"? a few options would be good? (Budget - Premium) possibility of getting enough bass without a sub? Or just upgrade the 5" speakers in standard door pods? 3. Will the Kicker amp be enough or should i look at getting something else? 4. is 12" too big for the Sub firing through ski hatch? Well I think that's it for now.....Thanks in advance Chris

    I think its time...E39 Audio Upgrades.

    So today the postman delivered some goodies...in the form of facia adapter and wiring harness So i got about fitting it all which I have done! My biggest problem is all the wiring christ there is a fair bit of it! My small OCD doesn't like the fact it is messy behind the head unit! Any tips? Also can't get it all fitting tight can't seem to fold many of the tabs on the cage down. Cheers Chris

    Brake wear sensor checked at MOT?

    When one of my sensors broke it put the light up on the dash. So I just cut it off and soldered the two wires together. Problem solved.

    I think its time...E39 Audio Upgrades.

    Cheers for the heads up on the grommet bm_sjo, not sure about the door cards...on a bit of a budget. I was waiting for that Dennis. I will most likely run the 3xRCA's and the speaker cable down the passenger side and over the glovebox. In reference to the speaker cables im looking at something like the Parrot ISO extension to plug into the BMW to ISO adapter from the amp straight to the factory wiring. Removing the need to cut the factory wiring. I think the only real choice for speakers is 6.5" in mdf. To get the best sound at least. I have previously been looking at Focal and Rainbow. I'd get a matching pair of coaxial for the rear too. My only uncertainty is tweeter fitment. Is there any issues? Size? Crossover? Mounted to the mdf? Good news on the amp though, I can't afford to buy a new one yet. Although a nice class d is on the cards. Maybe a 5 channel one to power the sub too. Talking of subs I have an 8" Sony driver kicking about. Would I be able to mount this directly in the ski hatch? Mine isn't cut yet. Would it make a noticeable difference? I don't think it is massively powerful. Cheers, Chris
