    Ahh, my first E39 ownership roadside breakdown.

    Glad you didn’t overheat. Was the pump original?

    Rough start this morning

    Possible that weak battery is causing EML light on start up and misfires are due to throttle body? I had similar car shaking rough idle with EML when I had old battery and a series of many short trips. I didn’t get misfire codes however. During that time, after reading on this forum and others, came to conclusion that these throttle bodies are sensitive to whatever occurs during start up with a weakened battery.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Replaced ACS type 3 replicas (8.5j x 18) with staggered style 66 and the car is nimbler and the steering feels better. I like the look of the types 3 and 18s on the E39 but the 66s handle better.

    That’s amazing! Congrats! Any tips? Driving style/major repairs/maintenance?

    Cleaned windows inside and out. Gummipfledge on the window trim and door seals. Diluted something called soap in a bucket of warm water and used a sponge to clean the steering wheel, dash, and door cards. I’ve actually never used plain old soap to clean my interior, always some expensive cleaners and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Went for a joy ride after. At 21, she probably turns more heads now than when new.

    Congrats DerekJr! Glad to see an E39 in such epic mileage territory. What have you done maintenance wise? Do you have any tips or recommendations?
