  1. Nice buy Dan. Love the alcantara interior. Had it in my old E91 M Sport, plus very nearly had an E39 with it, but when I saw DiggyDick's 39 on here it was a no-brainer to buy his instead as it was so well maintained.

    My 1st E39 wooohoooo

    Hi Keith, it was like this when I bought the car, so unsure when/how it was done. Two owners before me, it looked like this; (He saw me on Facebook and sent me some photos!) Jimmy - nice to see the update, glad you're still enjoying her. (I do miss her to be fair!!) Polished lips do look good on the parallels, but you'll be forever polishing them to look good. I'd think twice if you drive her often! lol

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Looks the business
  5. Sorry @d_a_n1979 I only just seen this too!! lol Nice one, any pics?? My E65 has really started to grow on me now, but I do still miss having a 39 of course
  6. Blimey Dan, what you gone and done??!! lol
  7. That looks smart Rich. Window surrounds painted gloss black?
  8. Nice work! What sort of money do the genuine headlights come in at? Was it from a dealer?
  9. Well done Rich, I'm surprised it didn't go quicker. Picks of the X5 please!! How is it?

    Interior looks tidy, good work. I reckon a Sport model black headlining and pillar trims would finish that off nicely
  11. GLWTS Rich - On the basis it's had your magic touch on it, it will be a good buy for someone My mate just recently purchased a 640d. Absolutely EPIC motor!!

    Shampoo the car - you can get detox shampoo (Farcella do it) to take off as much residue of wax, polish etc. Then clay bar the car to ensure the paint is squeaky clean and free of contamination. You may need some glue and tar remover for any really stubborn spots. Then hit it (gently! lol) with the machine polisher. I use the Menzerna range of polishes - https://www.menzerna.com/products/polishes/car-polishes/ If you get ones with 'FG' after the number, it's 'Finished Gloss' so you can use a harder compound but still get a good finish without always having to do multiple stages. I do tend to finish with a fine one though. After that, a coat of sealer or wax to finish it off. Hope that helps
