    Magnolia Tree

    They can sometimes take years to flower, I mean a seriously long time... Could also be that the soil is too acidic/alkaline, so maybe have a look into that It's the same with fruit trees, more so pears! You can plant a healthy pear sapling and it may not fruit for 10-15 years; it's to get its strength up and establish a solid root foundation etc Are there any other magnolia trees in your vicinity?

    Snow foam recommendations

    I think the comment is more related to using a power washer for the snow foam use before the wash etc, not going straight at the car with a full on power wash... However, I've done that before and with no issues; home power washers are generally nowhere near as powerful as forecourt power washers or ones in car wash businesses Thing is, everyone is always going to have their own way of doing things, so what one person does may not be the same as another and opinions will differ...
  4. A lot of the E39s on here are that and older Gin... No one on this forum has ANYWHERE near the amount of issues you do with your car... Personally I'd scrap the car and start again... I've seriously considered giving you your own 'sticky' thread; labelling it 'gine530d's trials and tribulations'... Least we could keep the plethora of your posts in there and the question after question...

    What brand spacers

    They may have meant 30mm as in 15mm per side; but you need to do more Google'ing and see what comes up... Running with an offset of 2, IMO, ias asking for trouble! I've 9.5" wide 18" Style 37s on the rear of my E39, they're offset 25 on their own, I've used 5mm hubcentric shims to space them out so they're more or less flush with the arches, I wouldn't want to run any more!

  10. Welcome to the forums @poarta I've moved this question you've posted from General Chat into the more relevant E60 tech section (I think your cars an E60 5 series, but if not let me know and I'll move it again). General chat is just that, not very car related, so here in the relevant E60 series tech section, you'll get better coverage and answers

    What brand spacers

    Well make sure you've got your measurements right as IMO, 30mm is a lot and will cause some rubbing, more so over rough roads or heavy undulations etc
  12. Took these off today & replaced them with brand new ones... TBH they didn’t need replacing as they’re faultless & immaculate, mainly because they’re off a Jap import with no corrosion etc! Theyll be be an ideal replacement for badly corroded/higher mile suspension etc £50 delivered

    Leather cleaning

    I just used microfibre towels too pal; but I also used a clothes brush to work the cleaner in a bit more; more so on the beige interior of my last 530i, you could see it lift cack out of the seats! I do similar to our leather suite too which is cream... Then, wipe clean, let it air dry for a few mins and then work in the leather conditioner etc

    What brand spacers

    Centre bore; your car is 72.6, whereas an E39 is 74.1 Why do you need to space out OEM Spyders another 30mm, I would have thought 15mm, maybe 20mm would have been more than enough. Their offsets are aggressive already, aren't they? Looking on the BMW wheel website; their offsets are as below: er E60 ff. M5, Allrad 8,5x19 vorne 245/35R19 ET 18 13,27 9,5x19 hinten 275/30R19 ET 32 13,26 touring 8,5x19 245/35R19 ET 18 13,27 So if you put 30mm spacers on the rear, the offset will be 2 Are you lowered or having arch work done?

    What brand spacers

    As long as your CB is 72.6, they'll fit What wheels are you running to need 30mm spacers either side?

    What brand spacers

    30mm, yeesh... I'd go Eibach, TPi or H&R only for those sizes They MUST be bolt on spacers at that thickness, so not a cheap affair TPi ones here: http://shop.sixonetwo.co.uk/range-rover-wheel-spacers/5-120-30mm-centre-726-tpi-hubcentric-wheel-spacers-range-rover-pair-10-nuts.html Eibach ones here: https://www.eibachshop.co.uk/eibach-prospacer-kit-pair-of-spacers-30mm-per-spacer-system-7-s90730002_p31222475.htm#.XLi_ApNKjBI

    Check connections under the seats; unplug and plug back in a few times, carefully, to clean the connectors. Hopefully that'll re-seat them properly
