    Cool to see it carry on its path of refreshment! Did you put the factory speakers back in the rear? Mine were completely blown and in the end I re-foamed the cones because there seems to be varying debates about the DSP system making it a bit tricky to replace speakers and get a good result. The re-foaming process is a bit of a pfaff but it seamed work ok. Doors are starting to go now so will probably do the same as it is cheap to do.

    I don’t know the car but face value looks good..........time to build a flush of e39 motorsports..... like the colour combo and visual condition.....

    Cool will bring my e38 to the next Sunday catch up to compare notes.

    Interested in your views of driving experience..........v8 vs v12.......and sound being one domain. Power and torque delivery being another. Weight balance one more! I have been in an e38 for 12 years now but only ever been in my 728.....but I love it even if it is the wheezy one.

  8. awesome E39 up for sale

    Hmmmm the addiction in me is strong - I think this one would get under your skin. They are such a good daily......wish I had room at the inn! The colour is classy.

    I live around the corner and while I haven’t met Duvey I have walked past his e32 many times. It looks like a really nice survivor and has great road presence........hope it goes to an appreciating home
  10. Wow - seem very.......cheap? Do you have any experience with them?
  11. The e38 rear deck subs are 5.25 paper cones with an 8 ohm resistance - which aren’t easy to find. in my previous e38 I found some on Trademe where the paper rings had been replaced by foam ones and they worked pretty well. Unfortunately my latest e38 has the same issue where the paper rings fall apart and the cones rattle. Does anyone have a line on replacement speakers in NZ or who repair speakers? there are options in the US but only one seems to be well regarded and it requires modification to the speaker box. cheers Glenn
  12. What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Replaced the rear tail light on the M5 as the led bar had gone phut. Then went to install a CTEK charger on the battery and the negative earth clamp fractured.......wtf. After much phaffing about I have a new clamp and the charger wiring is all aligned so the battery foam cover etc all goes back in properly.......small job turns into a bigger one. Now off for a WOF.....
  13. E39 M5 clutch life

    Mine is original at 107,000. Holds fine but I did one hard launch and it couldn’t cope so I think they are vulnerable to abuse.
  14. The led bar in my Hella facelift taillight has gone phut. Anyone have a good spare? May end buying new if anyone know a good vendor. Prices are a bit scary......
  15. You could buy a new cheap car and watch it depreciate like a stone or buy the 7 year old BMW with 100,000 km and enjoy driving it while trading off a portion of the reduced depreciation to budget $1000 per year on maintenance. I just bought a 17 year old BMW with 90,000km and it runs superbly. Cheap motoring on a total cost basis.
