    Axle stand positioning?

    As the jacking points are really plastic recepticles for the jack, most axle stands will ruin them in no time. So +1 from me for using the mentioned rubber inserts. Readily available on ebay/aliexpress. Keliuss

    rusted chassis for sale

    That's generally the price for a badly rusted car WITH an engine and gearbox. That's what I'd be looking for if I wanted a fixer-upper. Speaking from experience with welding my own E34, rust is like an iceberg: you only ever see the tip of it and the bulk of it lies hidden underneath. Keliuss

    Help me find my grandad’s E34…

    Hi and welcome. In case you weren't aware of it, there are narrow grille and wide grille versions. Yours is the narrow variant, indicating it is a pre-Sept 94' model. Not much help but it's a bit. Are you sure about the reg? Doesn't seem a likely format for the time. Keliuss

    New Wheeler Dealers

    That episode is about 8 to 10 years back so would be the "old/original" series. Keliuss

    Headliner fabric source?

    Headliner out through rear door. Not done it myself but others have. Keliuss

    Nice job and write-up. I love these types of custom modifications. Should inspire others. Keliuss

    Space saver wheel size.

    They are somewhat rare but can be found. Just don't buy the more widely available 16" one from the 3 Series as it won't clear your brake calipers. Keliuss

    Space saver wheel size.

    Wheel sizes are irrelevant. Standard wheel sizes range from 16" to 19" and there is only one size OEM space saver for the E60. It is 135/80R17. The rolling diameter will be similar due to tyre wall size. Keliuss

    Temperature instead of fuel consumption gauge

    @Ollie Campbell is correct. But have a look here. Not something I persued too far myself. Keliuss

    Retrofit Guide

    Working for me. Not familiar with onedrive tbh but top left corner, I hit "Open" then "open" again and sure enough it opens. Thanks again. Keliuss

    Retrofit Guide

    Hi Marcus. The link is not working, but many thanks for your guide though. I have version 3.1 downloaded from somewhere this long time now. I have referenced it many times and still appreciate it. Nice to know you're still about and active Keliuss
  16. I toyed with the idea of a removable cat for the annual test but was advised by a legitimate cat buyer not to bother. He has a 08' Prius and took the original off, put a cheapo one on and said he's not worried as they know not to bother with non originals. If the price of a new front section with cheapo cat is circa £100 how much precious metals do you think it has? Nigh on nothing would be my guess. Keliuss
  17. Been there, done that, bought a new one! BM Cats as per prevoius suggestion. Looks like an unusual method of extraction on yours though. Appears to be sheared off not a reciprocating saw which is the usual modus operandi. Keliuss

    Another DPF issue

    What @GoNz0 says for the DPF. I've reset mine to zero before. Regens as normal. On your other query, I don't think there is a sensor before the turbo on our N47s but I think there may be on other models (M57). What software are you using that shows this? I'm guessing now but it may be an irrelevant placeholder for other engine variants. Keliuss

    120K miles DPF Service

    On a side note, judging by those backpressure readings, that's a very healthy looking DPF you have. Keliuss

    Wiring Rear Camera (Andream)

    Having read the above issue and looking again at my older posts I can't really offer any extra help either. Keliuss

    Double spring failure

    About a week ago I hit what was likely a roadworks trench across the road that was poorly filled and had sunk in a bit. I heard what I though (hoped) was a large stone hit the underside of the car. Had a look when I got home but didn't notice anything. NCT (MOT) on Thursday gone and it failed for both rear coil springs broken. Now I know what that sound was. Keliuss

    DPF. Never re-gen'd?

    These readings look fine. First test with the engine off and your 3 sensors are very closely aligned to each other - good. Second test doesn't look too bad either. Here's an old one from mine for comparison: Keliuss
