So the title of this blog has a story behind it. Since 2003 my mum has owned an E39 525i SE. In addition to only 2 garages trusted to working on it, I have also worked on it since I was young and hence my E46 is a familiar face due to having the same beautiful M54B25 engine, gearbox and many mechanicals.
Her car has done many miles and with only common faults to repair for example ABS pump, cooling system refresh at around 100k, it has been a truly brilliant car to my mum.
