    My Dad's 530d Touring - What’s it worth?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I would say you are probably right. looking into the VIN spec search in the next few days to see the factory options. Not sure whether to take it down the colour coded trip route with M5 alloys or just do the alloys as they stand in an anthracite. Can you buy the shadow line or is it a paint job?

    So first day out out in the E39. Lovely weather and thought I'd show my face at the Forge motorsport's annual brunch club. Fair few BMW's there but it's amazing how much rust was around! Really proud of how mine looked. I did leave early but overheard some cracking comments from on lookers that these are getting rare. Can't wait to get the wheels and grills done next week! However, I do have a coolant leak. Cant quite see where from from but I have filled it up twice in three days. Looking to do a fool coolant system overhaul, how much would I be looking at? Anything else needed? -water pump, -top/bottom hoses, -full flush etc Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Dug out the 5 from the garage. 2 staged the bonnet and boot after decontamination, sealed with crystal wax from SwissVax and top coated with Meguires Nanolex wax. Ready for Gloucester Forge Motorsport's brunch tomorrow. Put all the stages so far on my project thread. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    So worked on the boot today, really happy with the 50/50's. Got the majority of the swil Mark's put and brought back a beautiful gloss! Annoying post out to the ran but used it as an excuse to get the hose out and meguires nanolex the whole car ready for tomorrow at Forge Motorsport's brunch. Really happy with the beading after nanolex and the swissvax crystal rock wax. Il get some pictures tomorrow but the plan is just to keep detailing the car while at the show. Alloys returned next week then a full detail on the 1st with a ceramic coating. Boom! Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    So the bonnet had a stage 2 polish and after an IPA wipe down, finished off with Swissvax Crystal Rock. (Obviously did another quick decontamination prior). The results speak for themselves! Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    I see what you mean on the colour choice. It just seems silly to put them back to normal for the cost. hence why I thought a nice off grey deep silver. Struggling to find pictures to compare. Any ideas? Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Back from the shop with new rubber breather seals. Gave her a quick bath too. Booked in next week for alloys in a Bentley Anthracite, playing with the idea of having matching kidney grill surrounds. It is a kind of metallic deep chrome. Any thoughts? Also going to do the calipers in Biarritz Blue to match the body work. All coming on nicely! Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
