What did you do to / for your E53 today??

If you attach a photo vs. place they come though as broken links on phones:




I've been wondering what causes that. You can attach a photo as inline picture and they will show large and inline with text as my example here.

They do have to be resized to fit. I use tapatalk app for that since I also take the pics with the same phone can't be more convenient.

I like the wide bubble mirrors and logical position outside low.

Look into the "aspherical" (panoramic) mirrors. Way better and I'm combing from experience of using very similar bubble mirrors in the past.

Yea, it's weird. Iphones or computers have that problem. Phone pics look correct. When it's transferred to a PC, it's turned over or upside down. I'll see if I can edit or rotate the pic to the correct orientation.

I did try the bubble round mirrors. They were too big. The smaller round one would probably work. I wanted to try these longer ones since they take up only the lower mirror part.

Just ordered new rear tires due to their affinity for sex with porcupines.

$506.00 USD for both

Not sure how to hide more tires from the wife

I bought a used rear wiper motor. Last weekend I noticed it was really wobbly and loose outsude the car, and it has not been working well. Lo and behold the plastic frame of the motor is completely broken.

I tried that on mine before I swapped the head unit for an AVin unit. The viewing angle was wrong even though the seller said it was supposed to work on an e53. Based on the viewing angle the LCD was probably for a sedan where the screen is lower. On mine I had to lean forward to get a clear view of the screen. Sent it back said screw it and bought the Avin. Glad I did. Some of the best money I've spent on my truck.
