    WANTED - e39 facelift front grille

    Hi pal - I've just listed the set I've just removed off my touring
  3. d_a_n1979

    Style 66s & tyres (straight set, not staggered)

    Provisionally sold
  4. Removed off my 2002 530i touring; both in good condition, used, but not a mess and came out readily enough. A few of their tabs were broken, but they held in place fine and weren't loose. They've snapped back together fine also £35 inc delivery via RM

    Style 66s & tyres (straight set, not staggered)

    IIRC tourings generally had straight set alloys

    PDC Front and Rear not working

    It could be, but I've chased this before and it turned out a few of the sensors were duff and not playing ball There's a reseller on eBay that sells these for c£7-£12 each and with a 2 year warranty; I'd buy them and replace the whole lot (bar the painted ones) and see how you get on But check the plugs/wiring too in case you didn't quite click the plug 'home' etc
  7. Selling a straight set of Style 66s x4 17x8 Style 66s with 235/45/17 tyres (2017 Yokohama rear tyres with just over 5.5mm evenly worn tread across them & brand new (less than 150miles) Nexen N’fera SU1 tyres on the front). Clean up very well, but are marked/curbed & would need a full refurb to be immaculate, obviously. No cracks/buckles etc, all straight & true £275 inc courier delivery £250 cash on collection (you can have the 5th spare for free) Can be collected/sent mid next week onwards

    Facelift lights with amber indicators

    It’s hardly run in Scott... Keep it and get it fettled Ive recently replaced my headlights for brand new Hella units and could have gone down the amber route if I wished, but decided to stick with the white/clear headlights... So yours could have been fitted after it was released from factor, maybe down to damaged adjusters etc

    Bmw e39 530d touring auto

    Have you read the codes? If not, start there... Research into ignition switch issues too Hopefully someone will be along with closer answers, but deffo start getting the codes read, properly, not with a generic code reader

    Dodgy Ebay advert?

    Just search on Autotrader, it’s got a good search function

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Did my first ever tip run in mine Did make sure the whole of the rear was covered with a large tarp to keep it spotless

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Lovely; get a project up and running in the Projects section
  13. Scott 'Zion' on these forums used Walkers Autotech; I bought my first 530i via Scott and they'd really looked after the car mechanically; but they seem to be a respected garage, so could be worth looking into. Not exactly on your doorstep, but not that far either 'I think'

    Dodgy Ebay advert?

    LEAVE IT ALONE... <<< Can I be any clearer?! IMO it's a shit advert, via a shitty seller; who either clearly cannot be arsed to sell it, or simply thinks it's ok to faff about and be as blase as possible... The details of the advert would make me forget it and move on within about 3 milliseconds... Keep looking, stop being desperate (as that's how you're coming across) and wait for the right car to crop up. Look on PH, Autotrader and Gumtree too... There are a good few out there, you just need to ensure that you go and view the right ones and ones that look like they're being sold by people who actually want to sell their car...!

    ttrw2's 2001 Le Mans Blue M5

    What about getting a clear wrap fitted to protect the new shiny paintwork? Just a thought... Looks stunning though, gorgeous colour
