    Yeah I know. I've had a break from BMW and getting one again feels so damn good even though most of the time they're pain:) Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk Gearbox service done today. It feels much smoother now. I have to say the neighbours had quite nice cars too!

    I know, I'm just tired of doing same jobs twice. With the previous car I bought Behr radiator and Thermostat from C3bmw and radiator started leaking two months after warranty expired, thermostat housing was leaking as well. Bought it from dealer and forgot about it. Maybe it was just a bad luck I don't know. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    I'm leaning towards the OEM pumo just don't know if that's not a waste of money... Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    I thought about it as that's what I've used in my E39 before. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    I went for rhe X8R kit. The car runs on Castrol Edge 0W40 FST. Mann filter. Pretty much it's got all receipts confirming every oil change with Castrol and Mann filters. I've just bought it and will do the cooling system overhaul, Vanos seals, Disa etc. Tomorrow I'm heading to Dartford Transmissions for a gearbox flush plus diagnostics.

    I've used Meyle in my previous E39 but just suspension wise and wasn't great tbh. I went for the GSF pump with metal impeller and the bearing failed after 35000 miles. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    It seems to appear only when engine is cold. I've ordered disa upgrade kit anyway:) Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    I know this subject has been covered a million times but which water pump is best? In the previous car I had GSF with metal impeller and the bearing failed after 40 000 miles. I've replaced it with SKF i know they do good wheel bearings, but a few thousand miles later got rid of the car so don't know how long it lasted. OEM one is quite expensive and it has the plastic impeller maybe this one is a good upgrade? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133085121538 Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    I've tried the air con and the noise is still there. I've just bought the car so cooling system is going to be refreshed anyway:) Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
