    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    They are definitely miles better than oem. even on normal journeys. Calipers - M135i 6 pots from the E88 Adapters - bought from @Jonathan Pugh Discs - Brembo high carbon 09.C403.13 - 104-11-168A - drilled, slotted and vented discs - none left with ECP anywhere in the country, autodoc seem to have stock though - be sure to get the drilled and slotted ones, the flat discs of this brand/product number DO NOT FIT on the wheel bearing and can be dangerous. Calipers and Pads - bought from Addiction motorsports - ideally they need a refurb but i was having issues that needed immediate resolution so as soon as i got time we did the swap, they'll come off and get a refurb soon though as i have a piston and seal kit from Bigg Red for these and the 996 rears too (which i haven't fitted yet). oh and 530d FAG wheel bearings that i had for my 530d but didn't fit, they came in super useful as M5 bearings have three locating pins whereas all other E39 bearings don't have any.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    fitted some (new to me) big brakes on the front. safe to say it's cured a few issues i was having on the front of the car, however doing the work identified a new issue with my oil cooler and rad. 1 step forward, 69 steps back. Instagram post Cheers NF aka Deepan

    Auto Gearbox Oil Cooler Failure

    @luggie Are you able to provide a working link to the thread please? i've got this exact same problem in my 540i currently (5HP30 gearbox) and would appreciate some insight into the issue to help me understand the next steps. @donut did you just replace the oil cooler by itself or did you do the rad too? @Loadmaster did you swap rad, oil cooler, thermostat, shroud, fan, viscous coupling and the expansion bottle along with all the fluids? Thanks all NF aka Deepan

    Suspension Options

    I've gone for KW v1 form Regal Motorsports, as i know someone there and got a deal. £800 delivered. got to wait 3-4 weeks for delivery though, just debating whether i need new Anti-Roll Bars. the M5 was polybushed all round so i'll be re-using them. just need to find someone to get it set up right once installed. @d_a_n1979 I have BC's in my E30 and while i love how they feel in that chassis, aside from you, i can't find much evidence of them being used in the E39 chassis whereas there is an abundance of evidence for KW V1. and given the price point, for <£50 difference, i opted for the KW. the good thing is, that if i ever want to go for Air later down the line, they can be converted pretty easily by BagsByOCD/OnlyChargedDubs, and can be done in a modular fashion , however i don't have any space for a tank so that will take a lot more research. Cheers NF aka Deepan

    Suspension Options

    Ladies & Gents, opinions please. E39 540i Touring SE pre-facelift (1997) suspension choices. It would be appreciated if people could say which of the three options they'd prefer and why. I'm looking for adjustable suspension (ie: Coilovers) that work with the factory SLS. (1) KW v1 (2) BC Racing (3) Bilstein B12 Pro Kit (not adjustable). Thanks and Regards NF aka Deepan
