    e32 750iL Calypso Red

    Thanks @d_a_n1979! The e32 is finally home, washed and tucked into a shed until I’m ready to do some work on it. I have to sell the 740 and 540 to give myself some breathing space first!

    My E30 M3, the story so far....

    Inside the rear right wheel arch is the fuel tank breather system which is an area often full of mud, rust and holes. The filler neck blasted and painted, vent tank cleaned, all hoses replaced with new and new electro plated fittings. New Splash guard and a new metal pipe cover fitted (they have now doubled in price!) after being painted and cavity waxed on the inside. Ignore the suspension components as these will be tackled later on but i gave the shock a wipe down for the aid of the pic. Freshly refurbished 16x7.5 Style 5s by Lepsons shod in my favoured Yokohama AD08R rubber Starting to look more like a car now. Bumper foils (black stripes) have been applied and new rear badges with the all important M3 badge fitted millimetre perfect as per BMW fitting instructions.

    You forgot those that add M badges to two litre diesels. Hateful inbreeds! [emoji12] Sent from my SM-N9600 using Tapatalk

    Personally I would never buy any car that's been remapped or had any kind of bypass/removal that could risk MOT failure. It's just not worth the risk.

    Advice on selling a car....

    WBAC- yes I’d imagine they’ll chip you at least 10%! Just pull your big boy pants up and sell it like normal people. All the doubts your having about selling the car to “wrong-uns” true buyers have the same doubts about buying from “dodgy used car sales man” you know like Mike gobshite cheeky chappy hold your hand out Brewer.... It’ll be fine

    I'm very happy that I made the decision to brave the cold on Thursday and swap the wheels on the F11 over to the winter tyres. A great decision as the wedding show we covered on Saturday meant that we had to negotiate 4 inches of snow to get to the venue in a tiny village near Farnham. 50% of the exhibitors didn’t turn up getting stuck in the snow or simply not bothering to venture out. The F11 was fully loaded with gear and the virgin snow covered car park was treated to few doughnuts. Much to the chagrin of the caretaker of the venue. Nobody else ventured into the car park.

    Advice on selling a car....

    I would personally use eBay Classifieds, Pistonheads and Gumtree; these are the cheapest options, but give you great coverage. Autotrader is ok, but expensive and limited to its own catchment etc Advertise well; include all necessaries and decent pictures too Re test drives, it's one person and one person only. No groups of people and no multi-visits. If they want to see the car, they see it at your address or you agree to meet in a very public place. You drive unless they have FULL insurance coverage (very rare this as most insurance will only cover you to drive someone else's car covered on Third Party ONLY)! If they cannot prove they have fully comp insurance to drive another car, then you drive it or not at all. I've always made this very clear on car ads when I've sold a car; happy to have the car to be stone-cold for when they come to see it, so they can hear the cold start up, but they won't be driving it unless fully comp insurance is shown and I've the full value, in cash, has been handed over! The horror stories you hear do happen, but far & few between, IMO it's a lot of scaremongering, but still you need to keep vigil and maybe have a family member or pal with you, somewhere in the background, just for peace of mind etc It's all common sense really

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    I never purchase any of these dealer goos that they try and sell with the car. I think they are all crap. Better spending the money and getting it "new car detailed".

    Having plenty left over assumed range and actual range driving are two very different things....... so my response is the classic KB https://goo.gl/images/o6aZnd

    Recent update as car has actually had some fresh air and had a wash. Seats have also been fitted and wired in. Also bought some 4 pot Porsche callipers for the rear and hopefully have a deal on some 8 pots for the front

    Goodbye and thank you

    I ditched BMW daily drivers a few years ago, although I kept two e34's as these IMO are the last of the over engineered and mechanically simple BMW's. C.

    When waiting to get mine back at the dealers, I just happened to have a look at this. But instead, all I picked up was 5L of screenwash instead.

    so after 10 hours of blood, sweat and tears, I changed the shoes, pads and disks and it sailed through the MOT. Handbrake now at 22% I've decided I'm now going to use it as my daily drive

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Although I have the middle rear headrest for my Touring I have never left it in as it restricts rear visibility so much.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I had this happen to me, wiper arm pretty much fell off on the way to work on a dark rainy morning. Rain-X got me through that. The replacement arm cost me £75ish from Cotswold who were quick, and reliable and I wasn't going to wait for eBay and Royal Mail to take days/lose the package. Get it done now for peanuts and avoid having a nightmare commute.

    Swap out the F10....?

    Yup mine is exempt from the ULEZ and whatever similar nonsense that Glasgow City council are proposing near me. Its only nonsense in Glasgow as there is little in the way of alternative transport being offered.
