  6. Hi im a big Bmw fan and own a few. I've been lucky enough to be able to collect own and drive some of the greatest cars ever built. The plus side being they are a useable pension fund. My latest addition has taken me 12 months plus to find and eventually I did find it. 2005 05 plate 330d sport touring auto in orient blue. 2 previous owners with last one 10 years. 60k from new with full history. In good solid condition with NO RUST and not messed with. My objective was to create a very very clean car for everyday use and for it to drive as new. What I had was the foundation for that car. So I set about new wheels and tyres new discs and pads vortex breather arb bushes drop links swirl flaps removed all filters changed two thermostats replaced rear springs changed all front and rear bushes changed rear lights on tailgate changed(gone yellow) side repeaters changed (gone yellow) bmw grey alcantara gear gaiters and hb gaiter recovered steering wheel 4 wheel alignment all fluids changed all vac pipes swapped i have fully detailed the car and ceramically coated plans are to fit Bluetooth and drive it. Massively capable car and really truly drives like new I thought I'd share jon

  10. I have used this product for years. Not greasy or slimey and goes on a treat. Good natural look and you layer it to give more gloss though I am a fan of nice clean satin look rather than high gloss Let it dry and it does not sling. John
  11. Just get them checked and refurb what is needed. I have had instances where 1 injector has failed and simply refurbed that one. All the others did another 72k before another failed and then i sorted that one. This was on a previous e39 530d workhorse that had over 330k on it when it was sold. There is no rule of thumb to when they will fail some seem to run and run others just give up!! I took my car to somewhere local and got it sorted but last year I had a c270cdi on the fleet and i replaced all 5. Used a company that sent me all replacement injectors through the post at £110 a piece and then gave me £15 back for each one of the old ones i returned. so £95 each injector.(sealing washers were included) That car is with a friend who is doing 1000 miles a week in it and it has done 40k since and all is perfect.(car has 195k on it) If you want details let me know. If you have someone who can identify the one that is faulty or you do the lot and can swap it/them for you it is an option. John
  12. I had the same issues very recently. Intermittent rough idle at traffic lights etc. Sometimes perfect sometimes when i pulled up it was rough. Did leak back test on injectors all was fine. No smoke. Turned out to be injector 3 where the needle in the injector was fouling on nozzle on idle. This is very common on these injectors. Indeed I was given the old nozzle and needle and when you span the needle in your fingers all was shiny 90% of the way around until a "matt" area could be seen which is where it was picking up on the nozzle. Injector reconned refitted and now perfect. hope that helps. John
  13. Thanks for the comments. They are my passion . John
