The engine is awesome when you stick it in manual and brings a masive smile to my face every time I boot it
I'm assuming the hedgehog dies after a similar amount of time to that on the E46? Replacing that hedgehog was a nightmare - so hard to actually get it out. I'm assuming that the E39 hedgehog is easy to remove once one has taken the dash apart etc. Cheers!
