    After losing some drive in my auto gearbox, it was noticed that the cooler pipe had sprung a small leak. This was fixed. My problem now is that I need to top up the oil.

    Okay, so my car (e39 m5 2000) came with a 4:3 tv, and a mk2 sat nav drive, and a 4:3 tv tuner, also the bmw24 unt and the coaxial DSP system. I've upgraded the Nav to a MKIV and the screen to a 16:9 which is awesome, and upgraded the tuner to the one that supports 16:9. Heres the question, i...

    On my E39 Alpina B10 3.3, the aux fan (the one in front of the rad) is on all the time, regardless of water temp or the air con being on. Is this normal - looking at previous threads on the fan, it seems tha it should only come on if needed in hot weather or if the air con is being used. Also...
