    Best brake pads?

    Car passed its MOT other day....straight through....tester impressed with car (525i se E39) and told me to hang onto it as it will outlive me!!! Anyway...he noticed pads on rear only had a few thousand miles left in them...so I will replace them soon but wondering which ones are best for my car? Pagid (Product Code : 101110278) seems to be popular ....and of course Bosch....Euro car parts having a 50% off sale on brakes too but ends tonight!! And without sounding too dumb do you get a full set of four pads when you buy a set? Gonna fit them myself so any tips would be great !

    E39, when to call it a day?

    I am new to owning any BMW...my E39 525I SE was a spur of the moment thing...saw it on an auction website...made an offer...it was accepted and I flew from one end of the country to the other to get it....I was as nervous as sh.t both buying it and driving it the hundreds of miles home(made sure I joined a breakdown recovery club)...the car was faultless and in fact drove like a new one...with less the 50,000 on the clock the engine was hardly run in lol....all I can remember is driving the E39 with a smile on my face and a feeling I was in the seat of a quality car...I bought it as a runabout over the summer as my wife's mates and family had come over and the only other car I had was (is) an old Astra mk 3 (24 years old)...so for several weeks I took them all over the UK and covered in excess of 4000 miles and it didn't miss a beat...found a great indie garage in Nottingham (RGA) where Aaron has magic spanners ...it had a full service (last one being in 2008) and changed the rocker cover gasket as oil was leaking in air con unit...this is the car I was supposed to keep for six weeks ....I have had it nearly two years now and had many people offer to buy it off me for more than what I payed...the E39 is special and the thought of not having my car or selling it to one of its many admirers is a long way off because when I sit and drive it makes me happy and puts a smile on my face...how many cars do that so I would keep yours mate and give it the TLC it needs because when you get shut of it you'll regret it!

    EML Warning Light?

    Hello guys...haven't used my BMW 525 se for a couple of weeks but anyway started up this morning/she started first time as usual/smoothly running and drives with no issues at all other than the EML Light has come on and won't go off? Been driving around town and the car runs spot on! Not in limp mode or anything so can't understand why the EML Light is on!?

    BOSCH WIPER BLADE SET £16

    Ordered so thanks ...hope this time i get new ones as opposed to the used/dirty ones i got before at their branch in Lenton/Notts ...luckily i checked the contents before i left so took them in and changed for new ones! How old ones ended up in new boxes is anyone's guess but i would imagine some scammer probably took a set beck and asked for a refund (for whatever reason) and lads in shop didn't check the box before they were put back on shelf!lol
