    Good choice Dan.

    Any other cars that seem to have just disappeared?

    Daf 55, they have rubber bands for a gearbox, really! Bought one from auction to sell on in the late 70's. The steering wheel literally came off in my hands as I was driving it home, the nut was missing!!

    Ignition Switch Oem brand?

    I fitted a Febi part number 38229. Looks like the original Valeo it replaced. Just over £40.

    Yes Kevin as its a bit newer than yours I had to fit a resistor into the original plug to stop a code being thrown. This is the resistor came with the new BMW thermostat from a Geman Ebay seller as a "kit"

    Finally got round to replacing the original 105° thermostat with the 88° one I bought a couple of months ago. This is a well known mod (Google it). The idea is the engine runs a bit cooler putting less strain on things. Also dropped the bottom sump as I was curious to see if there were any pieces of broken timing chain guide. I was pleased to see the sump and engine internals looking very clean with no sign of debris. Mileage is 72K. New anti-freeze, oil and filters, so all is good. And I will get it out and use it this summer!

    540i fault codes - P0011 & P0443

    Yes the sump would have had to come off to do the chain guides

    Edit .. not an E39 M5 £11k

    Looking at the pictures that's not an M5!!!

    Easy to check for broken bits of chain guides, just drop the lower sump, 10 mins and 25 10mm bolts. Hopefully there will be nothing in there!
