So have finally removed these from the Beast.

My wife just doesn’t drive it enough to warrant them being on the X5 and unsure what I’m doing with the X5 now.

These are made by PB Brakes and are superb. I’ve used them on track even so can vouch for how they are.

Front kit consists of 8 pot calipers with 405mm 2 piece discs.
Rear kit consists of 6 pot calipers with 380mm 2 piece discs.

Front discs and pads have loads of life left as only put the pads in about 3k miles ago and the discs have no real lip.

Rear discs have some score marks which I’m get some pics of but still useable. Have some brand new rear pads anyway included.

I have purchased a full set of seals etc for all 4 calipers as I was planing to rebuild them all to ensure all ok. None of the calipers/pistons leak so they can go straight on but figure be better to replace them all before fitting.


Will get some pics of rear new pads and rear discs.

Only thing you will need is a new set of front braided hoses. Available from PB but if required I can order a set in at whatever they cost.

These are over £3.5k from PB but in asking £1k   £800 with collection from Wolverhampton. Or can meet within reason.

Well, after much pondering I've decided to remove these from the beast.

They are made by PB Brakes and have many superb reviews and brand new cost in excess of £3k.

Specs are:

8 pot fronts with 405mm floating discs
6 pot rears with 380mm floating discs
Braided hoses all round
New front pads (boxed)
New rear pads (boxed)
Complete new seal kit for all 4 calipers.

You do need a minimum 20" alloy to clear the fronts (they really are that big).

They do need rebuilding hence the inclusion of a complete new seal kit for all calipers.
Discs are still ok but one rear does have some scoring where the one caliper stuck (hence the need to rebuild them now). This will generally be ok once new pads are added OR you could skim the disc if required.

I have the rear E70/71 brackets (hence they are compatible with the E7* fitment).

Rears have been removed already and just got to remove fronts.

Can email/whatsapp pics as photobucket has now gone caput.

I'm after £1200 which is a bargain when you consider the new pads and seal kit cost £400.

Buy and sell / AFe Stage 2 Induction Kit for E53 4.4/4.8 *Sold*
« on: April 12, 2015, 11:20:00 PM »
Finally decided to sell this superb induction kit.

Imported from the States it sounds excellent and as it's the full on stage 2 it comes with the additional intake piping to the throttle body which provides better flow.

Comes complete with everything including the extra (lightly oiled) filter and super dry one. Also included is the cleaning kit for the filters.

Here's a link from Turnermotorsport afe stage 2 pro5r

As you can see from the link they aren't cheap.




Buy and sell / E53 Rear Light Cluster Seals - Genuine
« on: March 17, 2015, 09:42:04 AM »
Found these the other day while rummaging.

Genuine seals for the rear 4 light clusters (the foam gasket thingy lol). I upgraded to the LED jobbies.

£30 delivered.

Had this fitted for about 6 months to the X5 but as my wife isn't fussed figured might as well sell it on.

This is a superb upgrade to be able to paddleshift the gear changes and get a nicer steering wheel.

It comes complete with the steering wheel (which was retrimmed by Jack@Royal Steering Wheels (but only with blue stitching not tri-colour) just before I fitted it 6 months ago), round airbag (so can be fitted to facelift models), slipring (provide the connections for the paddles) and wiring harness (so no having to cut any wires).

If you collect I can even fit it all for you.

Actual wheel:

All the kit together:

After passing the Beast (the X5 lol) to my wife I decided on something a little quicker and more tuneable.

So this particular motor was owned by a couple of previous members of E90post which means it's saved me a bit of cash for once as it's already modded lol.

Unfortunately (which is unlike me) I don't have any pictures from when I picked her up, but sadly she was absolutely filthy so probably a good thing there's no pics looking so sorry.

Looked pretty much like this though:

but had the Eisenmann tips sticking out and CM's style 359 reps on.

Now me being be, I picked the car up at 11am and duly drove straight to another E90post member and chopped the replica 359's in for some genuine 313 Performance rims.

Then spent the Sunday giving her a good clean to end up like this:

  • Birds B3 suspension
  • Uprated ARB's
  • M3 strut brace
  • Powerflex subframe bushes
  • Quaife LSD
  • ETS intercooler
  • AR Catted downpipes
  • BMS intakes
  • Eisenmann exhaust
  • Evolve map
  • M Sport steering wheel with DCT paddles
  • Alpine sound upgrade
  • Full CIC/DAB/Combox

Been on the X for about 3 years now with no issues. Adds a nice extra throaty note when putting your foot down.

Have to admit, it's a big cone...

Suits the engine bay:

Stage 2 piping (shorter and straighter pipe work):

There is a second filter supplied with the kit which I'll dig out.

Cost about £350

Asking £200

As with the brakes thread, looking for a part-ex tbh with your standard exhaust and cash for this superb and looking and sounding exhaust system. Complete 200 cel sports cats with rear boxes and custom tips. This really does sound unbelievable.

Would need to meet and get the exhausts swapped over at shared cost between us.

Full SS so never any worries of rust etc.

Haven't got any pics of the full system from underneath.

Cost around £2k for the whole system.

£1200 and your standard exhaust.

Well, after much pondering I've decided to remove a few of my mods. My wife is gonna have the X5 (minus a few mods at her request) as I'm planning a new little project.

So these bad boys are up for sale.

They are made by PB Brakes and have many superb reviews and brand new cost in excess of £3k.

I have a new set of front pads as part of the sale and have the rear E70/71 brackets (hence they are compatible with the E7* fitment).

They are still currently on the X but will removed as soon as required.

There really is loads of life left in the discs and pads tbh so you would easily get 15k miles use if not more.


8 pot fronts with 405mm floating discs
6 pot rears with 380mm floating discs
Braided hoses all round
New front pads (boxed)

You do need a minimum 20" alloy to clear the fronts (they really are that big).


To say they stop well is a true understatement. They are phenomenal.

£1650 gets em.

Buy and sell / 2 sets of spacers for sale
« on: July 27, 2014, 09:42:57 AM »
Now I've fitted my new rims these are no longer required.

They are proper hubcentric bolt on spacers made by Eibach and H&R so are excellent quality and fit etc.

First ones are 20mm Eibach and second are 30mm H&R ones. Both are 72.6 centre bore.

Both come with the correct bolts to attach to your hub and the Eibach 20mm ones come with wheel bolts which are slightly shorter than stock to fit your alloys to the spacers.

These are the proper way of mounting spacers than just longer wheel bolts that add extra stress to the hubs.

These are an ideal set to bring the likes of the OE 168's etc out to a nice stance without being too aggressive. Or even for your winter wheels so they aren't lost in the arches lol.

Will get some pics up of the spacers and the stance when fitted.

These are normally over £100 per set.

£80 per set delivered.



Buy and sell / 20" MK Motorsport Alloys - pics added
« on: July 03, 2014, 09:37:15 PM »
So new rims fitted so these are up for sale.

Will get some pics up of them once they're cleaned up.

They are 20x9 et35 front and 20x10.5 et35 rear (centre bore 72.6). They are quite light which is a good thing and are pretty mint tbh.

I'll let em go for £650 collected (or can meet within  reason).

Just seeing really as I'm considering going to the M3 SMG Wheel.

« on: June 28, 2014, 04:33:21 PM »
Since this won't fit over the brakes makes sense to see if anyone's interested in it?

Pretty much as new.

Collection from Wolves ideally.

Sensible offer.
