    e39 part price

    Hello Can I get a price please for the rubber bung/foot thing that goes into and covers the jacking point for an e39 - passenger side rear on an M5 (BJ10280) if that makes any difference? Thanks Simon

    Reverting to prefacelift tail lights

    Yup as Raymond says, the alterations required to fit the facelift lights are only in the centre of the unit - the perimeter isn't affected so the seals should still...seal!
  7. My guess would be that most of the 'abandoned' wiring looms you're looking at were for the police-spec equipment, particularly when looking at the labels on them - OE looms either wouldn't be labelled, or would be labelled in German not English

    Surrey / S London bodyshop?

    Does anyone have any recommendations for bodyshops in Surrey / South London (or a little further)? Just noticed the e39's jacking points aren't looking as good as they could! Thanks

    e39 M5 as an investment?

    Interesting thoughts, thanks guys! I should maybe clarify; I have no intention of doing this, was just surprised that someone had. I just drive mine and enjoy it!

    e39 M5 as an investment?

    Sitting in the G30 5 series in the BMW pavilion at Goodwood (very nice car, massage seats a bit unnerving!) and after asking me what I drive the guy in the back says he's bought an e39 M5 as an investment now prices are rising, and shows me pics of a respectable carbon black pre-facelift which just needs a little tidying to be a very nice car. So I'm curious, are e39 M5s as an investment a thing that's happening now?!
  12. Beautiful! Love the pic on the nav screen too!

    Broken plug

    Kinda looking for reassurance more than anything! Having removed my BM23 to send to Baris, I've kinda snapped/annihilated the locking mechanism for the big multipin plug...given that it was such a bitch to get the plug out in the first place, realistically is it likely to be a problem that it won't be locked into place when I put it back?

    e39 loss of audio

    Hi My e39 with oem nav etc has the stereo permanently playing my ipod/intravee. The last few journeys, the audio has suddenly cut out after a couple of minutes. Ipod still playing, track info showing and counter running, just no audio. Changing from 'CD' (intravee) to radio brings the audio back, and then I can switch back to 'CD' and all is well for rest of the journey. Any ideas?
