My intro is long overdue, have been a member since 09 but only become active since last Sunday...
I have owned many BMWs over the years including an e30 325i cab, an e30 325i m3 rep, e30 318is, e36 318is sport coupe, e36 325I cab m3 rep and an e46 318i. I then stayed to Mercedes for a while with a few w202 c classes followed by my favourite w210 e320 cdi avantgarde.
Last Sunday, I returned to the BMW world by purchasing a lovely e39 530d sport in grey only to be greeted with a day of purchase breakdown! After seeking advice on this lovely forum and the assistance of a somewhat 'competent' mechanic, a faulty lift pump was diagnosed and replaced. Problem sorted.
Future plans of remap, swirl flap removal etc.
Have to say though, the sport does not feel as good as my old e320 CDI!
Here's a pic for you all...
