Hi,

Atigun - what you have there is a fake or replica wheel, so it's quite possible the centre cap you are looking for will be a different size to the oem one listed above. You'll need to measure...

Hi,

It could be a faulty ignition swtich - all sorts of electrical gremlins show up when it starts to fail.

I'd suggest taking your car to a reputable mechanic/vehicle AC specialist and have them diagnose what the issue is.

Hi Tennis Dad,

The CDE-W265BT is on Alpine's website at $320 to purchase. This unit I think also is a 'traditional depth' head unit as it has a disk mechanism inside so part of the additional $480...

The big 'flaw' with what you say is that on the rear of any unbranded fake/replica wheel, there's no identifying detail as to 'which' sweatshop made them. If that information was put...

Hi,

I'd personally not buy new replica's, thus I'd never buy used ones! Reason being they're low quality and are more prone to being bent and cracked than higher quality wheels.

The official winter wheel for the E39 M5 is the Style 66. I think there's perhaps one or two other oem BMW 17 inch wheels which 'might' fit the M5. The reason is due to the size of the...

Hi,

You'll need to check to see which video module you have, it's probably an older 4:3 unit and you need a 16:9 unit. This means more spend for you. However, if you can spend even more, then go...
