    moon mileage...

    No, it ain't worth sh*t. It's a tuned diesel 3 series with a sh*t tonne of miles on it. It ain't rare, cool, or worth much at all.

    E87 130i - How is it as a daily?

    Hah! It's not actually the kids that's the problem, it's the monstrous car seats, and the push chair, and the baby bags, and the shopping bags >_<. Tempting offer, even just to reduce the fleet, but I think I need to try something different...

    E87 130i - How is it as a daily?

    Too small, I almost bought a M135i when I was looking at my M5, it was a very close choice. (Un?)fortunately I got a toddler, and a baby about to drop and the 130i is too small for all 4 of us, hence we have the 535i. If I sell both M5 and 130i, their replacement will need to be a reasonably large car. Have thought about all sorts of stuff, an Audi S6 4.0, Panamera, new brand new Camry or old Mark X, Maser Quattroporte... Too much to chose from, I should probably just knuckle down and focus on the new baby instead of new cars

    E87 130i - How is it as a daily?

    RE: water pump. Meh, replace it if/when it fails. I'd be more concerned about the DSC pump motor. We have had ours for a good 4 or 5 years now and done 60k kms on it. Currently @ 85k. Only issues have been a failed DSC pump (common) and spark plugs. Maintenance is relatively painless. My gripes with them are the steering is too heavy, the suspension is too hard and they are a little small. Front seats are too narrow and i'm not large. The steering and suspension work pretty well on a spirited drive but the rest of the time it's just annoying. The steering in both my M5 and 535i is far superior in daily use. Engine is solid, fuel consumption is average at between 10-12l/100km. Overall a solid reliable car that is pretty good to drive. Tempted to sell it as well as the M5, but what to buy?!

    Another Alpina (D5 F10 this time)

    Have to disagree. The M5 has just as much comfort as the D5 and the D5 is gunning for performance as well. The torque rating on the M5 is pretty much the same as the D5. The only advantages I see in the Alpina is the fuel consumption, and potentially maintenance costs being lower. In any case i'd just grab a 535d and give it a tune and save myself 30 grand on the Alpina.

    Again it's M5 money, for not an M5. I like the white/brown though.

    M54B30 Oil Info

    Went to Repco today and checked the Penrite stand. It has the same recommendation as the Penrite website that I mentioned above. I have no idea what you were looking at in Repco.

    M54B30 Oil Info

    As Qube mentioned what you are saying is totally wrong. The Penrite website 540i E60 it says 5W40 or 0W40. I CBF going down to Repco just to check but I'm pretty sure the info will be the same. Edit:L I just checked Repco's website and it says a 540i E60 2006 the only Penrite oil that fits is HPR5 5W40. For Castrol the Repco website says 5W30, 5W40 and 0W40 are suitable. So Repco's website is specifically recommending the right oil.

    BMW M5 Alpina B10 V8 1999

    Same situation as the E39. The E60 Alpina was nothing on the M5. I feel like only the E34 B10 was any good. Even current Alpina is a bit naff.
  11. Also no. An M3 blows it away.

    BMW M5 Alpina B10 V8 1999

    Not classic and not even nice. A late 540i msport is nicer.
  13. None. I want a Toyota Mark X GRMN.

    BMW M approved Castrol Edge tws 10w 60 vs ...

    Yeah I agree, way to over think one of the most basic pieces of car maintenance.
