    Pete west mids got a reaction from 535i Andrew in Dewalt Impact Driver - cheap as chips on eBay   
    I second that..I recently picked up a dewalt drill, impact driver and the wrench in seperate deals but all have been solid purchases and probably do more than what I expected they would

    Its scary how quick this is accelerating. Sad news Anil.
    Where I live in Willenhall about 20 mins from Brum, its taken around over a week for a lot of people to get this lockdown idea into their heads. I worry about the knock on effects of that and whats to come.

    Pete west mids got a reaction from Paddy O'Furniture in Breakdown cover   
    After reading the above posts and realising I actually didnt have any cover I have just decided to use Autoaid and for £60 I really dont think there can be any complaints. As mentioned it covers the wife and any car either of us are in. Hopefully I wont have to use it but will see how I get on if/when needed. 
    Way cheaper than my previous Greenflag and AA policies in recent years.

    Pete west mids reacted to Tuvoc in HELP - 2002 530i Sport - Constantly rising Coolant Temperature in traffic.   
    I remember this so well in my old M50 E36. Hot summers day, no aircon. Stuck in traffic, engine temps start to rise. Put the heater onto maximum. On a stinking hot summers day with no aircon. That helps for a while, until they start to rise again. Have to switch the engine off a few times. Finally able to escape down a side road where temps then drop to normal very quickly when the car gets moving. Repeat.
    That was the viscous fan, very common issue. But certainly an old radiator that was in poor condition didn't help either.

    Pete west mids got a reaction from d_a_n1979 in A few questions re head-unit install - E39   
    Hi dan this Takes me back to when I did my eonon unit. I too the whole lower dash off to get the cage pit plus it made it much easier to run wires etc.
    I don't think I would have got the cage out otherwise as it's recessed in at the sides.
    Your connection looks like a normal flat pin one I think so it should connect straight up.

    Pete west mids got a reaction from Tam in No sound from stereo   
    Could be a number of things..bad stereo (amp inside)
    Bad connection at the back
    Speakers unplugged or loom damaged but unlikely all 4 speakers are unplugged unless previous owner had aftermarket speakers in prior to sale and removed them without reconnecting
    Fuse
    You could buy a used stereo off eBay. .They probably aren't much now...just to see if it's definately your head unit or something else
    If that still has no sound..then it's a process of elimination
    What system do you have...is there anything in the left hand side of the boot?

    Pete west mids reacted to Peter_5 in Fitting aftermarket wheels on my e39   
    Hi,
    At the moment I'm using 18" style 37 alloys, replica. They're  8x18 ET20 all around. I would like to swap them for a set of Rota Grid Drift 17": http://www.rotashop.co.uk/rota-grid-17-9-5x120mm-et35-flat-black-single-rim_p1040676.htm
    They're 9x17 ET35. What spacers do I need to make them fit? I know it's possible as I've seen e39's driving on them.

    Try realoem to see if one of the parts was superceded by the other so you may be able to interchange them

    I think for anything slightly heavier and larger than a large letter then hermes is normally the cheapest option...plus their website tracking will show once it's been delivered
