Hi everyone, thought id drop in an intro before using forums
tomorrow i pick up my new (old) motor. Happened upon a 530d touring e39. W reg 2000.
Couldnt resist as it was very affordable, 100k miles on the clock and fbmwsh. No rust that i could find.
also didnt have swirl flaps or the sls system that i read can be problematic.
im a competant home mechanic, and have been an enthusiastic 'dubber' for years. Fancied a break from VW and this really tempted me.
it has no faults as yet but no doubt itll throw me some lol. I hope to be of help on here too, and may need your advice from time to time aswell
nice to meet you all.
p.s ive been on alot of forums and feel it worth saying i can take a joke, and am not argumentative ;-)
