    It’s been a while....

    I have heard of the alpine unit...I wanted to keep mine factory spec....but it’s still up for contemplation as I’m still considering changing the leather in mine but that’s another story... the signal has worked fine when the sound works...later this week I’ll be dsp fix used on the m5board...however last time I did that I blew up my nav unit on my last m5, however I may have put the negative and positive in the wrong order

    The only update is I’ve put a digital tv module in, just plug and play from a later e46. How about your m5? Still going strong?

    That’s definitely the finishing touch. Makes the wheels look completely different :-)

    Originally I took it to get the buckles sorted out at £40 a rim.then they mentioned I had a bulge in my near bald back tyres so I thought sod it two new ps4’s And a full refurb on all rims. Tyres were £180 each and rims £70 each. Then they reduced the buckle repair down to £15 each left the car there for three days. They really looked after me. Couldn’t fault them

    I wish the e39 m5’s were trouble free, but I think your either lucky or not!! However my last one was a goodun....this one I’ve only had since June...so we will see.

    I took it to wheelworx today to get buckled alloys repaired, the fixed the buckles (I think previous owner either hit a pot hole or a brick in the road) they fixed the buckles but apparently the rear tyres, almost illegal have a bulge on the inside, he sent me pictures...so two new ps4’s Going on...not bad at £183 each fitted so I thought while it’s there might aswell refurb them fully...will let you know how it goes as years ago they wouldn’t touch shadow chrome!!

    I’ll dig out a picture of my xr4i soon, I did love that car.....til I hit a parked car and gained 6 points....I ruined it, didn’t realise my eyesight was as bad as it was oops!

    I think the trim looks better in the flesh, however did you see the purple m5 for sale a while back with lotus white leather...it was stunning, had it of not been a cat d and up for £15k I’d have considered it ive always liked white, loved my xr4i in white but I also like “individual” as they are less common. This one has all I wanted in spec but condition was the big factor oh and estoril blue of course

    Hi Dennis now I’m really intrigued as to what the specifics of the e39 m5 are...do tell as for mods the only thing I would change is the exhaust...we will see I’ll finish the important stuff first cheers Rob

    Hi Dennis maybe you shouldn’t have told me about it, however I am a tad glad you did or I wouldn’t have found it!! I should get photos of the the underside when im at my brothers garage next, all the brake pipes have been greased to keep em mint!! A maintenance thread would be good......I plan on keeping it for a long time....the only downside to it being so good is everyday I toy with changing the exhaust or keep it all oem nice to hear from you Dennis
