That was a good one for sure; I watched it twice. I'm a sucker for Alpina content. 1 of 43?!?! Man, what a find...

This thing about fully compressing the belt tensioner 3 times so it gives good service life...could there be a shred of truth to it, or is tensioner life more dependent on your hairstyle?

You can't beat a bit of Sreten on the box

His builds have been superb; really glad he's got his teeth into an E39 530i Touring... I am biased though

It's in the service manual/ISTA, I believe.Though it never really seems to work for me and I always end up going by feel instead of counting clicks

Like Sreten, I was also skeptical of the efficacy of pre-loctited bolts and screws. . .

I was a bit bemused by the loctite thing. Of course some of it gets spat out when you put the bolt in, but there's still enough there to do the job. The bigger issue for me is the prospect of chunklets of loctite getting sprinkled into the nice clean engine...
