I'm fairly sure it won't show correctly unless the car is at/near operating temperature.

I remember the second time I tried to fiddle about with INPA after having already done it and couldn't view/change anything properly then found this out.

You mentioned you changed the setting again though, had the car warmed up by this point or was this at the same time? I definitely couldn't change the minimum lift when it was cold.

You could always try and view it again when the car is just started and cold to see if it's the same story. Did confuse me as well!

The LS's look great and no doubt they are lovely to be in, but the interiors are so dreary. It's a great shame otherwise I guess they'd be as bout perfect.

I'm going to see this tomorrow morning - slightly out of thread budget ( at the moment) - it's strong money but I'm assuming( expecting) it to be rust free. I don't like the privacy glass but love everything else.

Still mind and have a good look on the underside around the jacking points to be on the safe side.

Thanks - will do. The Schnitzer badge will have to go. However it is the most subtle kit I've seen from them I think. They are not known for understatement.

It's a Japanese import so the nav will need changing.

I could definitely change the setting, stopped and started the car a couple of times to check and it stayed at 0.799mm after I changed it from 0mm.

The car had been running for a few minutes before I found the setting, so it wasn't cold cold, I think it takes 90 seconds for the valvetronic to revert from startup mode, as I understand it?

Gents, I have a slight crack in the plastic on the side part of the radiator in my E39 540. It leaks steam when the engine is warm. Any ideas how to fix it without replacing the radiator which is itself fine. I have an idea to melt the plastic to seal it.

Is there any chance that the plastic is the right sort for solvent welding to work?

What's with the silver rims around the tachometer and speedometer? Are they Japanese market specific, or an AC Schnitzer addition, or am i just a terrible E39 nerd? They just look wrong - not unsightly - it's just not quite like the usual E39 dashboard or M5 version.

I'm no BMW expert. I've not owned one before but Japanese cars seem to have all sorts of differences. I don't mind the silver trims. It's supposed to be a Japanese 20 year anniversary car so it could possibly be to do with that.

Fix it by replacing the radiator; you don't to mess around with the integrity of an already compromised and fragile E39 cooling system - it will bite you hard if cheap it along.

Brakes, oil and cooling are the three systems you don't want to go cheap on imho.

I'd replace it, as unhelpful a suggestion as that is!

Either replace the radiator... or crack an egg in it. That'll fix it for sure wink

My mate has just had to put a replacement engine in to his petrol E39, due to the cooling system breaking. Don't be like him...

As far as I know these came as standard on the M5 of the era. Can't remember them looking out of place in real life IMO.

Not sure if this is a good 'un or not but just popped up on a local fb page and thought it maybe of interest:

Looks very decent.

I note from my eBay list that the bathroom suite green 190 has gone back up with a price drop. £785 seems like a bargain with MOT until May.
