    e39 M5 Exhaust Center Section

    After recently fitting a full Russ Fellows exhaust, I am looking to sell the standard exhaust center section. I was going to keep this section, but could do with the space - I cant see it ever going back on the car either. The exhaust has been cut on the rear section as I had aftermarket back boxes fitted. Instead of just cutting out the cats and weighing them in, I thought it would be best to offer it complete in case anyone needs the entire section. Much to my suprise I have been offered over £1k for the cats alone, but would rather it go to someone who may need this. I'm looking for £1k or as close as possible. Collection only, as it weighs a lot!
  2. Back box / muffler delete section for the BMW e39 M5 4.9 V8 (1999-2003). This section replaces the standard back boxes and is an easy fit. The pipes are 304 TIG / fusion welded stainless steel with 73mm slash cut inward rolled tail pipes - these suit the rear bumper very well in my opinion as they compliment the shape and curvature. The standard back-boxes will require cutting from the centre pipe and removing, this back box delete then slips over the centre section and is secured using the supplied Mikalor clamps and mounted using one of the existing brackets on each side. I have recently removed this from my car as I have fitted a full Russ Fellows system. Collection preferred due to the width, however it can be cut at the centre support for shipping, then welded once you have fitted it. Asking what it cost me to have made - £400. Thanks.

    £300 for spar plugs change E39 540i M62??

    Thats expensive. I paid 40 quid for plugs on the M5 and about 40 mins to fit. If your local, grab the plugs and I'll do them for you. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    E39 M5 Buying Advice

    Very nice. If you havent already, I would suggest obtaining a copy of INPA and a cable to read values from the car. What I have found is that various things, especially sensors can wear which reduces performance but isnt enough to throw the check engine light. A quick and easy test can sometimes be to unplug the MAF sensors so the car runs in speed density (alpha-n) mode, if it feels quicker and sharper then it may well be a few worn sensors, namely the MAFs. INPA was vital for me when diagnosing the car and reading live values. There is also a new freeware tool from ECUWorx that allows you to read live vanos values. Enjoy the car, inevitabley at this age there will be work to do - as I knew when I bought mine, but wouldnt change it!

    E39 facelift pusher fan not working

    I had the same issue, replaced the fan last weekend which resolved the issue. The old one span free, but wouldn't spin when tested on INPA. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    E39 M5 Buying Advice

    All depends on the situation and budget. I would always budget at least an extra £2k to rectify any small problems / issues or replacement of wear and tear items in the first couple of months of ownership. I purchased my M5 earlier last year, my budget for buying one wasn't huge. I did factor in an extra £2k for things that needed replacing. I bought from the lower end of the market, purely based on the fact the car isn't going to be a daily driver and I am fairly handy with the spanners. After 6 months of ownership I had spent nearly £2k putting things right and freshening the car up, this included items such as suspension / steering parts and bushes as well as a new clutch and dual-mass flywheel. Again, due to the age of the car - there will be money to spend. I'm currently putting money aside to sort out the small areas of corrosion which I am aiming to have done in around 24 months time. With all that said, I am still elated that I did manage to buy one of my dream cars, I fear that if I left it longer I would have missed the boat. The good thing is that good examples are holding value if not beginning to appreciate slightly - so I think my car is worth at least what I have spent on it added to the purchase cost, at least how I justify it anyway

    Caffeine and Machine meet last year

    I think its probably down to the fact that this forum isnt quite as busy as it once was. Seems to be a common thing for car forums these days, as other mediums such as facebook groups and whatsapp become more popular - It will have probably been discussed on one of those platforms and missed the forum entirely. A few of the old car forums I used to regularly frequent have now gone
