Hi all, I am a new member here, had my 530d about 5 months and thought it was time I joined a forum.
I have been a member of a Toyota Forum for 8 years and know how usefull they can be and this seems a very good forum from what I see so far!
A little about me:
I live in wolverhampton, work as an electrical engineer and am setting up a performance center next year (mainly aimed at toyotas)
I have a few Toyotas and race one in particular in TSS and a few other mini series. I am a bit of a car nutter and spend most of my free time tatting with them.
I rebuilt the engine and gear box last year in my Toyota and seem to spend a fortune on it, this is why I have the BMW. It is a daily runner, a place of calm and quiet (Well not on idle its a DERV ) I have no plans to moddify or tune it, well apart from a remap perhaps, but for ecconomy, the extra power is of no interest to me.
I have the normal E39 issues, level sensor was snapped on the drivers front so I replaced the plastic arm with an alloy one, all good now. The rear cup holder is smashed to bits and the fog lights are cracked. Other than that its great.
