    Idle vibration

    Is it manual?

    E39 530d died

    Crank sensor could cause this problem and not throw a fault code up

    Mitivac for oil change?

    Just buy a sump plug repair kit from the well known auction site and fix the problem, I don’t rate the vac oil recovery pumps, take forever in comparison to a bowl and a Jack, the repair kits are about £20 and come with many replacement plugs

    Bmw e61 530d turbo opinion needed

    They whistle louder if the exhaust flexi’s are blowing, you may not notice it as an exhaust blow though, check for soot build up in that area

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Yes I’ve read the same today, my tester is a “glass half empty” kinda guy tbh (miserable bast@rd)

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    My mot tester told me, although sounds more reasonable that it would be a dangerous defect to void the running mot, I’ll probably bump into him this week so I’ll quiz him on the specifics of it

    Thought I ought to point out that if you take your car in for mot early and it fails it voids you’re current MOT. That came in in January 1st a couple of years ago

    E39 aftermarket head unit/ s’wheel controls

    I should have said, I love vintage hifi and vinyl format, as for in car entertainment I’ve never owned an amp and the best car stereo I’ve owned was is a Sony d-bass n 10 disc changer, (still have it)

    Bought another e39- again

    Looks like it been cherished by someone is it original paint?

    Defeated by Rear Brake shoes

    One of these makes it an easy job

    E39 dipped beam bulb holder

    As above, for h7 bulb, doing away with the aftermarket hids, just need 1 holder.
  13. I’d call in at a custom exhaust makers and let them have a look, I’m sure they would have a better solution

    E39 aftermarket head unit/ s’wheel controls

    I’m not sure tbh and still a bit reluctant to upgrade because I’m a bit of an audiophile and still listen to tapes but thanks for the heads up on the controls, good to know that !
  15. If I fit an aftermarket head unit will my steering wheel controls operate it? its the only thing putting me off replacing the original gear.
