  1. You'll probably end up with a second pair tomorrow!
  2. Dodgy Pneumatic Deliveries
  3. 2007 will be the previous E model 5 series. I was after a 6 cyl petrol touring which took me a year to track down. If you're after a 520d you should be spoilt for choice.
  4. I find it to be a friendly forum with some a lot of members with quite a detailed technical knowledge of these cars who are generous in sharing their expertise. I have Msport suspension and 19 inch non run flats. I find it comfortable but firm. I'd advise not ruling out an m sport without test driving one as you may find it ok and it would widen your choice. Happy hunting!
  5. But water on its own is just so boring compared to snow foam. I wonder if you can get it in colours other than white?
  6. Sad but snow foaming makes washing the car enjoyable! Not sure if it makes a lot of difference but it pleases my man brain.

    Make that soft cheese!
  9. Replaced rear shock absorber boots. Photos added to recent thread.
  10. 52k in 8.5 years. If I had an accountant they'd be telling me to part ex it for a Nissan Micra.!
  11. Is it just me or is you're eye inexplicably drawn to the odometer when it gets to a round number (like 50,000), but you don't notice when it's clicking through random numbers?

    Rear shock replacement

    Replaced the rear shock absorber boots today. Thanks to Alexak's post with the you tube link, found it fairly straightforward. This is the shock with the original boot and top mounting bracket. The 3 bolts securing the top bracket were easy to undo: This is what the two boots looked like after 8 years and 50k miles. One of the boots had started to split: Naked shocker: Back in place with its new Sachs boot and rubber locating bung: The you tube mechanic had the car in the air so could torque the bottom bolt quite easily once the wheel was back on. I didn't think I'd be able to get under the car once the car was back on the ground, so I jacked up the suspension arm, then torqued up the lower bolt. Not sure if this has the same effect but seemed a reasonable alternative. Just curious, would the split cover have led to an mot failure

    Loose pipe in F11 engine compartment

    So the engine mounts use a vacuum system... have i got this right? If so, are the petrol versions on similar mounts?
