    Going up or not

    I've been thinking whether the e39's are going up in value. The individual model models always seem more for obvious reasons, but are the 530s likely to start creeping up.

    Blower motor stopped working

    Mine started doing this a few months back. Replaced the blowers / fans behind the dash (i didn't do it). It started to work then stopped, then started, then after a few months later (two days ago) it stopped. Just in time for the cold weather - great.

    Heaters still not working

    Ahhhh thanks. They actually changed that part, I think let me triple check with them.

    Heaters still not working

    Every since I've had the car it has always had a little chrip coming from the fans when it was on level two. I've had the car nearly 3 years now, but recently the fans have all stop working had my local garage have a look at it, and recommended that the motor behind the dash board needed replacing. Motor was replaced and all was good, but the heaters and fans have stopped working again. Anyone got any ideas as to what could be causing this?

    Wonder how it's lasting after a few washes. Any updates?

    Gave the old lady a hoover inside. Crazy how much mess two kids under the age of 5 can make. Also as I'm toying with the idea of getting a wheel refurb I've decided to give myself a cheap man's polish rim look by not cleaning the center section lmao. If I find a place that can do decide wheel refurbs I'll be getting one right away.
  13. What's everyone using to restore their interior dash to a nice finish? Bit scare of using some crap products that will make things all shinny and fade the interior over time? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
