Yes, these old girls certainly have a healthy appetite for parts! Mine's currently waiting on a new engine viscous fan clutch and she's nearing another oil service.

I told my family that any birthday and Christmas presents for me would have to be E53 parts.... and my wife took me seriously, so guess what I'm getting for my birthday....
Wpoll hi, unrelated but what grade so you use in your 3.0d? 0/40w or 5/30w or 5/40w?

I think the manual calls for 5W30 LL-01 but you should be good with the 5W40 too, esp. in hotter climates.

The 5W30 is deemed slightly better for fuel economy reasons - slightly better (lower) fuel consumption but my guess is that most of us will never see the tiny difference.
