    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    But supercharger is the key point, more air + more fuel = more power. That's a totally different story. For naturally aspired engine restricting factor is air. Without supporting mods you won't get more air in cylinders, so adding much more fuel won't help. As far as I know, mostly it's just ignition timing adjustments when remapping n/a engine, which makes car more responsive and makes little power gains.

    40 hp from naturally aspired engine just with remapping are strong shout. Maybe it's possible from V8, but still sounds a lot.

    Idea of red calipers is keeping me of first of all because every teenager has done that to their street beast - 1.0 Corsa, including rear brake drums painted red as well. Silver or black is neutral colour, will nicely clear up brakes, which are usually rusty looking, and will suit to any wheel colour. Some time ago I was thinking about painting calipers in blue, the same colour as newest BMW calipers are, you can see them on most latest M sport models ( not sure what exact colour code is), it's not that badly screaming as red, but I'm still not sure how it will look on E39 brakes.

    On a quick look at gov website, only thing told about fail before expiry date is that if test is failed, you can take car away if previous MOT isn't expired and there are no dangerous defects, car is still roadworthy. So if you can take it away, you can still drive it.

    It avoids MOT only if car has failed with something, that's classified as "dangerous", otherwise if car is roadworthy, it can carry on driving unit it is repaired and passes retest or actual MOT expiry date has come. My MOT tester said the same thing this year, so not sure what to believe now. Would like to see where's your information actually coming from. Maybe you have any link where to find this point?

    Any experience with warranty service on batteries bought at internet shops, not much hassle if battery need replacing at some time? I always bought them in store so far.

    Thanks, will check out. Currently I have yuasa 019 in, looks like since 2015 or 2016, but doesn't feel strong anymore, and winter is coming, I'm using park heater in mornings, so need a good, strong battery. Do you think yuasa 020 will fit? That's 110ah an size is 40mm longer. And it's about £20 cheaper in Halfords than 019 one.

    Any suggestions on where to buy new battery? Need 019 one. Thanks.

    PDC sensors - where from?

    I used Halfords rattle can to spray the one I replaced. But luckily for me I had that spray can already at home.

    New turbo v2!!!

    Yes, but when tightening bolts, you are not applying any pressure to that gasket anyway. Gasket is between two sidewalls not between two pipe ends, so one or two bolts won't make difference if pipe is fully engaged in place.

    New turbo v2!!!

    No, it will be fine. It's only vacuum created from turbo in that area, not pressure. And pipe is pushed into MAF housing with seal in-between them. Exactly the same design at the other end, where pipe is pushed on turbo intake, with the same design gasket between both, but there's not a single bolt or clamp around, still everything is air tight.

    That's why I don't have that bolt on mine at all. Easy and fast access to everything

    PDC sensors - where from?

    I'm running £6 eBay cheapie for over a year while rest 7 are OEM. Everything is perfect. It works even after painting to match the bumper. But before painting, always try if they work first. My first sensor was defective, so seller replaced it immediately with another, which was good. Painting didn't affect range or anything else.

    I'm doing the same.
