    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Had a battle changing my rusty rear number plate screws. Drilled them out but the original captive but was seized so not re-usable. I ordered two new ones from BMW which have been updated and are now round and plastic, hole is hexagonal which didn't Inspire me with confidence so I made two out of black nylon, press fit

    M5 alarm/remote locking

    I had similar issues before, I think I used this method as a way of getting my key to work again https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?1843887-Re-initializing-your-key-the-correct-way

    Been dismissed at Work

    Thanks for the replies, I'm just keeping in mind she's in a better place. I'm going to try and get her buried with her parents as she idolised her dad who sadly I never got to meet as he died 4 years before I was born. If not it'll be the same cemetery

    Had my 3 month probationary period review a few weeks ago. They commented how polite and helpful I'd been fine tuning a recent job they'd taken on and fitted in with the other boys. My old boss asked my mate who still works at the last place was asking if I'd found other work the other week, he said his face dropped when he told him where I'd got into Unfortunately my auntie died in June and have been told today my wife's uncle has been found dead in bed. So her grandparents have lost two children in 9 months, unbelievable year

    E39 M5 Suspension - Experiences Please

    I have to agree with the above, I refreshed my suspension including genuine shocks 18 months ago. The car felt a bit sloppy but now feels a whole lot better, very compliant over our rough roads these days. I also swapped the continentals for pilot sport 4's which I found suited the car grip wise much better

    Hi Lee yeah bit gutted myself but needs must, I've done quite a bit of work to her since owning it. It's pretty close to where I want it to be now. Any projects on the horizon?
