    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    These arrived today. Fitted straight away. Genuine Hella Blackline tail lights. Quite hard to find a genuine Hella pair. Finally found a pair from Switzerland. Super happy with them. Car looks even sexier and slicker now. Photo 1: Before. Photo 2: Hella Blackline on the left (can't see much difference due to the angle of the photo), OEM on the right. Photo 3: Quite the difference. Photo 4: After. Photo 5: Side view. I think it's my new favourite angle of admiring them lights.

    @MrHooky Hello. I wanted to tint my taillights for a really long time now. Would go super nice with the shadow line and tinted windows. Yours look very nice and subtle. May I know how you did yours? I'm considering wrapping mine with 3M, but on the other hand I have found a new set of black line Hellas on ebay for £170 and I'm tempted to buy them. P.S.: love your diffuser. looks the business now!

    Beware E60 boot wiring loom!

    No worries. I was away for the weekend anyway. Right, sounds good then. I will attempt to fix it next weekend, just need some heat sleeves/connectors and some tape. Thanks Gibson.

    Beware E60 boot wiring loom!

    another thread resurrection. Hi Gibson, Did you just stripped the right hand side boot trim and pulled out the grommet that holds the loom and then pulled out the loom itself? I'm asking, because it seems to me (on initial investigation) like there isn't much slack in the loom to pull it out of the tube. Also, did you solder them together in the end? Did you put a heat sleeve on the soldered wires or just electrical tape? Got the same problem, both number plate lights failed and it is the wiring, unfortunately. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Need to sort it out asap. Drives me nuts.

    'lucky' you guys it's just the pipe. one of mine turbos (top one) leaks from the bloody housing joint. doesn't loose much oil, but still, it leaks... cannot fix it without taking it all out and having it rebuilt.

    Donington Park 'viewer experience'

    Thank you guys for your replies. Much appreciated. I thought wandering around may be the best experience. I just hope the weather does not disappoint us on the day. Thanks again guys.
  7. Looked through the forum but I could not find anything about 'viewer experience' at Donington Park racetrack. I will be going to see some races at DP at the end of May. I have never been to a racetrack before, hence my question to you guys who might have been to see races there. Should I buy a grandstand ticket or go for a normal ticket? (to my understanding, you buy a normal ticket, you go on the track banks and view the race from there). How does a race day look like in terms of going there as a viewer? Any advice and tips will be very much appreciated! Thank you.

    Thanks @Grizzle_E60. I will consider that option. Or maybe just buy new premium quality bulbs. Not sure yet tbh. Still in doubt.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Can you post any photos of it at night time, please? Was looking to fit LEDs to mine, but couldn't find any good ones that will last, don't throw up any errors and don't look like a Christmas tree lights. Basically closest look to OEM LEDs. Any errors with those? Cost? Have you bought them online or at stealers?

    Got the wheels refurbished, plus new center caps and gave her a quick wash. Can't get enough of the wheels now. Constatly looking at them. Absolutely in love. Colour: dark anthracite, satin finish. Currently in the process of spray painting the wheel bolts.

    2 years of 535d ownership

    Nice, good info, thanks. I've bought mine (saloon) 4 months ago. So far, only had to replace the battery as it died one morning. It was ten years old, it was the original battery the car left the factory with. I was well surprised and impressed it lasted that long!

    Check your scuttle drains!

    Checked mine today in fear of the servo being drown. All well. Only a bit wet after overnight rain. Took out few leaves to prevent future blockage. Looks like the previous owner took the grummet out (I bought the car couple of weeks ago). Here's a picture of the driver's side.
