Hi to everyone.
I have used this site for reference many times, but have only just got round to joining!
I have a 1997 e39 528i which I have owned for 10 years. This has been great, and really reliable; only mechanical problem I have had is a faulty crankcase sensor which needed replacing, otherwise never missed a beat.
I also have a 2007 e91 stop/start 320d, which was bought to replace the above [due to cost of fuel..] This was running great till it snapped its timing chain last week......Full BMW service history and only serviced 6k miles ago.[I thought these metal chains never snapped?] Looks like the e39 will be my daily car again.
