New Owner From East Sussex..

Recommended Posts

HI All,

I have just become the new proud owner of a 2002 540i sport in Titan silver with Black leather.

I had been looking around for a while for the right spec car, This one just about ticked all the boxes..

Memory seats,Steering wheel and mirrors

Glass sunroof

Dark glass option (not window tint film)

Xenon headlights

Wide screen sat nav

Split fold rear seats

Black graphite trim

Extras:

Cades Apollo 19" alloys (8.5" and 9.5" Staggered)

Genuine AC Schnitzer electric mirrors.

The car is in pretty good shape with just a few little jobs for me to do to.

New Discs and pads all round (Grooved and drilled being fitted tomorrow)

New starter motor because of occasional grinding ( Have read on here its fairly common...) New one being fitted tomorrow

The dreaded dashboard missing pixels ( can anyone recommend a good eBay source.... lots to choose from)

All in all, I'm really pleased with the car and look forward to maybe attending some meets in the future

Fantastic forum by the way !!

Thanks for the thumbs up,

I'm just down the road from you by the looks of it. I am only in stone Cross.

I will have to keep my eye out for you 8)

Welcome, I too was looking for a 540i but had to "settle" for a 535i but given the HP difference I doubt I could tell. Mine has 145k

on the clock and it runs like it was on the production line last Monday, mine is as quiet as a mouse, I can't fault it.

Can't fault the blue magic tree, I thought I was the only one who bought them these days!! The leather, the car colour and the tree

makes it a reflection of mine! spooky

It's more than likely too late but I read somewhere about an owner fitting those grooved and drilled discs with nothing but problems and wishing he had stuck to OE discs. I personally can't comment just passing on info.

Well I will give them a go and see how I get on with them.

They were quite reasonable in price and cant be any worse than the warped discs on the car at the moment.

If they are crap I will bin them and stick OEM back on :eek:
