    Edit: Sills have been repaired. 2002 BMW E39 M5 – Le Mans Blue Date of Registration: 09/01/2002 Mileage: 132,500 (will go up slightly) MOT Expiry: 10/02/2019 (No advisories) Reg: M5 DFF (Private Plate Included) Hi all, Unfortunately for me - the time has come to put my beloved 2002 Le Man’s Blue E39 M5 up for sale. It’s a reluctant sale, but I have a growing family and needs must – It has been a true weekend car having only covering 12k in over 4 years. Mechanically it wants for nothing and no expense has been spared, has tons and tons of receipts. When I purchased it in 2014 I had Phil from CPC check it over and he was very complimentary of it, stating it was one of the best examples he had seen in a while. Full Service History: Service History backed up by a fully stamped service book and tons of invoices – no expense has been spared on this car. Next service will be an Inspection 1.

Modifications: · Backbox delete – may not be to everyone’s taste, but genuinely sounds lovely and does not drone on motorway · E60 shifter – this can be a bit notchy in the colder months, therefore I have a brand new original shifter ,which will be supplied with the sale. General Notes: Body: It is a 16 year old car so does have the odd small ding/scratch but nothing significant. Unfortunately, it does have some bubbling appearing on the driver side rear arch. One of the parking sensors may need to be replaced also, as its constantly beeping in reverse :S Have x4 Winter Kumho winter tyres, which will also be supplied.

    abs lights etc

    Really? Didn't realise wheel bearings had any sensors? They are not cheap on the m models - I would suggest getting a second opinion if possible

    abs lights etc

    Most like the ABS module. Checkout BBA Reman who repair the unit for under £200. They check it first to ensure there is a fault

    BMW 2001 320i 159k E46 £600 ono

    E46 2001 320i manual - Ideal for spares/project £600 ono Oxford Green 159k Full service History including loads of receipts/bills/invoices MOT - until Feb 2017 Located SE London/NW Kent Recent Work: Replcaed Alternator Brushes (Valeo) Camshaft Sensor Exhaust Bridgestone Tyre's fitted at 151k This is my dads old daily runner, hes recently got a new car hence this is up for sale. Bad points: Its a runner and can be driven away, although the coil packs may need changing as sometimes the engine can misfire, turning the engine off and restarting seems to fix it. Its a 2001 so some bubbling on the arches - one arch side has a dent/scrape and general wear for a car of this age. Rear Parking Sensors dont work, i think one or two need replacing Guilbo may need changing as a slight thud from rear when changing gear One of the MOT advisories was a buckled wheel - although it seems to drive fine no juddering etc Air Con condenser may need replacing s its louds when AC is switched on. Full service history: 156k Oil Service - Sept 2015 152k - Oil Service Oct 14 142k - Oil Service - Oct 13 135k - Inspection 2 - Aug 12 126k - Inspection 1 - July 11 116k - Oil Service May 10 The rest is BMW Brighton Main Dealer I think i've covered most of it, any questions feel free to PM and I will try to get back to you. Looking for £600 ono Thanks for reading Jag

    Underseat Subwoofers in Armrest area

    Hey Dennis, Thanks for you reply - i didn't know slimline subs existed such as the JL below. - you are right in that they will hardly use any space. http://www.carsoundsandsecurity.co.uk/store/cp108lg-w3v3/ I have taken a punt on the Alpine PEW-S8 which is rated at 125w RMS and had the slimmest profile compared to the others. - I am just abit hesitant on cutting the metal for the ski hatch and hence why I went for this option. I hope to have it fitted soon and will report back my findings.
