    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Cracking job there. You wouldn't even notice it had been damaged. Did you rattle can that?

    Couldn't have put it better myself. Definitely hang on for a good while yet.
  3. I used to always change them every year or 12k whichever come first. Although I've not had that job for the past 13 years as been driving diesels since...

    Wish i had a drive to work on. Doubt i can get away with working on the car on the street for social distancing...although in most cases i would either be inside the car or underneath

    Security certificates

    Hi all, Not e39 specific so please feel free to move. But accessing this site on my mobile over the past 4 days has been a ballache...keeps saying not secure and that hackers may be trying to steal login cridentials and card details etc??? Every time.i click to like a post or reply...I've constantly got to go to advance and proceed un-securely? Who looks after this side of things for the forum? Thanks Edit also cant attach images using my mobile too? Was going to share a screenshot of the errors.

    My lowering springs just raised the car

    Old springs may have been totally done and the car may have been sitting lower due to that. Also new springs may take a few days to settle a bit.

    Changing gear lever bush from above?

    Sure you will still need to get under, remove the c-clip and slide the connecting rod out of the shift lever. Then it pulls up once you turn the bush 90 degrees or so???

    My Norwegian E39 With Many pictures

    Not sure on e38 but plenty to choose from off e39. I got mine off Tims on here. Great upgrade. Oh and we all know red paint gives you another 5hp

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Typical...just got an out of stock email. But luckily enough email says they are ordering more from supplier so they will still complete order...just a slight delay...which doesn't bother me as I wont be fitting for a few years yet.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Yup - couldn't be bothered to type all variants so i just said "upwards". I used details from the 540i when ordering mine. Just pulled the trigger now on a replacement set - cracking bargain. I might now even buy some yellow stuff pads and if they eat my current discs...least i have spare new mintex ones

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Yup...just bigger callipers and carriers off either late 530d and 530i upwards. Did it to mine and its definitely before stopping from speed.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Happy days £21 for the pair. Although my pagid are barely 5k old. What's people's thoughts on mintex. At this price will snap some up as spares. Also Ray112...Good excuse for you to upgrade your callipers and go 324mm.
