    E39 twin pipe rear box exhaust

    I've gone for the twin exit exhaust as I have always preferred the look of it. Yes, it is louder and sounds better than standard and you can hear it in the background compared to the standard backbox. But it's doesn't drone which is what I wanted from it especially when you leave the windows up.

    Successfully installed SMG Flappy do dahs. Transforms the car, more enjoyable. Steering wheels needs a refresh from Royal Steering Wheels though.

    E39 twin pipe rear box exhaust

    I asked Powerflow Southampton for a price on a twin exit back box like in the attached picture below and they said it would be around £225 + VAT which sounds tempting to me There's an eBay company called Fast Lane Styling that can do it for £140. Depends if you want to travel to London (Romford). They have a few YouTube videos and they have their own channel.

    Replaced the passenger side wiper linkage. Now I have a working passenger side wiper arm.

    Fixed the door handle yesterday but the wiper linkage for the passenger wiper has come apart this morning. I replaced it 4-5 years ago. I guess I will be doing the same next week lol.

    Replaced the snapped cable for the exterior door handle. I now have a driver's door that can be opened from the outside. Car ticked 298k miles tonight.

    Just as I suspected, one of the wires in that rubber hose has been split. Two more wires are heading in that direction. Hopefully. I'm going to remove the whole thing over the weekend. I went to the scrap yard and brought home a handle carrier from a scraped e39. I can't figure out how to remove the lock barrel.

    Unlocked the car and opened the door simultaneously. I heard a pop from within the door and now the door does not open from the outside. I guessing the cable snapped or became detatched. I will investigate further tomorrow. Also, noticed my boot light does not illuminate. I've changed the bulbs and the housing...but still nothing. It's not the fuse, so I'm guessing it's chaffed wiring in that rubber hose thing from the boot lid to the car. I had a similar problem on my previous e36 affecting the dash lightings and sidelights.
