    E39 audio upgrade

    Amplifiers and some headunits can be repaired by the right people.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Adjusted and fettled the handbrake so it actually works. With that I went to the tyre place and had 2 rears 265 35 18 Accelera phi on again as 150 fitted they work well and on to the MOT. Passed. A trip to the local immigrant car wash to finish.

    You could always sell it. People like myself hold on to stuff like that and say that it will come in handy one day. The truth is that modern equipment has far more functionality and carries a warranties where older gear sometimes fails you at the least opportune moment needing capacitor changes and the like. It's a consideration.

    As an amplifier and dsp package there is no better than the Helix p6 amp sap combo in a tiny package. Keep the Boston's in the front doors for now and see how it all pans out.

    Barry m Hybrid audio do a 2 inch full range driver for 169 quid that could replace the mid n tweet and they sound unbelievably good. With a little getting they could be custom mounted in the tweet area and driven actively and sound breathtaking with the right time alignment and crossover points and we.

    Dennis you could have elaborated your post a little more. I guess I haven't posted much latelymore due to the nature of the op questions n such that I have no knowledge of. Barry M, i am running my front speakers in the kick panels using 6.5 inch Hybrid audio Imagine coaxial drivers. Running a seperate headunit in the dash centre vents and all amped along with 2 subs in the boot.

    E39 audio upgrade

    People usually upgrade the fronts to 6.5 inch with the wooden adapters as generally they give mire midbass than the 5 25 inch standard size. With all the upgrades in various cars I have seen guys get hooked on upgrading the rears. No need. When do you sit in the back? Fading to front only with possibly a little bit on the rears if you have passengers is all you need. When was the last time you stood at a concert and stood with your back to the band?

    Auto box too keen to change gear?

    Yes I did, with no dash lights and the gearbox guys cancelled all errors and all's good.

    Auto box too keen to change gear?

    Things can go awry when the front abs rings/sensors have intermittent problems as the gearbox takes its speed from these.

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    Went out with G friend to Mansfield in Notts and in one pub they did a few lagers within a happy hours or so for 2 for £4. Needless to say we were both wasted that night.

    Refurb kit for seats

    Hi there I have an E39 530d sport which needs some recolouring on the front light grey seats. I believe that the petrol version has a slightly different tone of grey to the diesel. Would a kit be available to do the front seats. If so what would be the price? Thanks
