Hi! . Yep not fun. I'm very happy that I can fix most other broken parts myself at home.

So true .
Same story for this E53 before I bought it. No one wanted it, high mileage, needed small repairs, V8, ect. That's a kind of sad but also cool story

Oh no

Walked out to the X5 today to go to a job interview and found a nasty rust spot!

I always thought that the paint on the top part of this door looked strange. It has alwasy been a little dull and pitted. Must be a DIY repair someone had done. When I touched it some water came out

Will have to fix this soon, there is probably rust under there.
Thankfully I can do this myself and it's only a small part of the door.



I will get some pics up of the repair once done

The bubble in the paint went away after it dried up.
I still want to get it fixed soon.

''That feeling when you drop your E53 off to get something done''


Had my front side windows tinted today aswel as a little sunstrip fitted.
The windows are tinted around 55% which is the maximum allowed tint on front windows in NL.

I like the look, matches the factory windows much better. A little darker would look even better but I don't want to get a fine
