    I watched the first three episodes, I’d love to go visit the auction sometime but it’s a fair old trek.

    Thanks guys Dan, I was the guy who bought your spacers. It’s far better kept now in my ownership but it was in a bit of a sorry state when I got it. Wheels are style 218 from a 6 series and suspension is AP coilovers front and rear. I came across a new kit on eBay with the unusual rear springs so went for them. I converted the rear to springs as my bags were leaking but I plan to get a couple of new bags and convert back as it’s stiffer on the springs and the practicality of the SLS is plus factor too.

    New but old

    Hi everyone I’m Simon from East Lothian. I’ve been registered on here for quite a few years now but recently came back to 5 ownership in the form of an 02 530i Touring. I previously had a 99 523i. The 530i is an ongoing project that I’ve had since September last year and only has 100k on it so low mileage for the age of the car. I’ve already done quite a bit on it with plenty still to do to keep me busy. Cheers

    Tyre manufacturer

    I personally out the above choices would avoid the Bridgestones, their current line up of tyres are a fair bit off the market leaders at the moment and I've heard from people that have had them fitted to their performance car from factory and are less than impressed. At the top of their game at the moment are Dunlop who seem to be very strong at the moment and coming out above the rest in tests. One brand I would look at which I've used in the past and currently use a set of winter tyres and am very impressed with and are quite a bit cheaper than other premium tyres is Hankook, very good tyres for the money. The Uniroyal RS3's I've had on a car in the past and although very good in the wet and acceptable in the dry they don't last long if pushed hard, they seem to be quite a soft compound.

    E39 radiator for 523i

    Ok thanks but I believe the manual and auto rads are different?

    E39 radiator for 523i

    I'm after a radiator for my manual 523i as mine is misshaped at the bottom as a lot of them seem to be. I'd like a genuine item or a very good branded item obviously in good useable condition. I'll most likely require it posted unless you're close to Edinburgh. Cheers Simon 07827916016

    Poss new alloys; what do you reckon?

    I prefer the Zito's and I think they'd work well in either silver or gunmetal

    Thanks. Yes they are but mine has the block from a 2.0 16v Audi, makes a huge difference to low down torque.
