    Asking too much?

    Just got home. That's how I felt, though a few days after I knew I'd made the right decision

    Window tints

    I had front side window tints removed from mine, they were illegal. I actually didn't know they were there. I went into a tinting place to find out what tints I had on the rears, and it was only then that I found out about the fronts. They said the regulations basically mean any tint on the front is now illegal, there is not a very big margin with the factory windows in terms of the amount of light they let through. Any additional tint at all tips them over the edge.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Looking good. They give the car agressive stance compare to spyders

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Style 128's are now on..getting them on was a pain as the tyre sizes where not working well as im running coilovers. Currently the front are running 225s whilst the back is 255's, loving the deep concave Hub cabs will go on as they were missing at the time.

    E34 Fuel Lines

    Not as cheap as copper,all new fuel line clips will cost over 120 quid, iirc new fuel lines from bmw was deffo 3 figures, roll of copper is much much cheaper, easier to bend, oh and won't rust like the ones from bmw do...

    E34 front wing

    You wanna try pricing E24 wings... If you're doing the work yourself, and you're a decent beater, pattern parts might be worth it. But by the time a decent beater has got pattern parts to look alright it'd be cheaper getting genuine ones.

    Mike's 525ix Touring

    Hi Mike, 3rd light is a fail if it is presented with less than 50% of the bulbs working. If it is presented with no bulbs working, i.e. is disconnected, it should pass. I think I once had to put black tape over mine when it was installed but before I got it working to make it clear to the tester that it was not presented to be included as part of the test. To disconnect it, the connectors are tucked away in the offside D pillar, you should see a twin cable come out of the right handside of the tailgate glass as you look at it, that then go to a rubber grommet. Pull the grommet out and disconnect the black and white connectors. Re oil, I use Castrol 10W40 Magnatec. Re going up hills, time you found the sports button on the auto transmission. Max torque on the single vanos engine is at 4200rpm and you need to get high revs to get good torque, the M50 being an oversquare engine. What I do is when going up steep hills, I flick it into sports mode for as long as it takes to get up the hill, then back into economy..That way, you get good performance and a wonderful sound, albeit at the expense of fuel economy. But what's the point in having an M50 engined car if you don't rev it from time to time

    Result! :D

    RIP OEM Fuel Pump @244344 Miles - I'd say that's done well. Fitted the new one, cranked the engine a few times, and Va Va Vroom

    Window tints

    I think the law is any car after 1985 must allow 75% light through the window screen and 70% through the front side windows, so to me it sounds like they can be slightly tinted but it would probably get you a bit of trouble from the old bill.

    Hi, The real reason is that insurance rates within the entire industry are on the increase. It's not just car insurance, but insurance for everything. The last few years as the effects of the recession really kicked in, then along with other financial elements, rates went down. Recently, again with financial trends, rates are on the increase and so this appears during insurance renewal time. Shop around and get different quotes from as many companies as you can find and go from there. Cheers, Dennis!

    Dashcam Videos

    Yeah, it's a mickey take of professionally offended cyclists... There are a few cyclists on Youtube who deliberately go out to provoke car and van drivers so they can stick it on there and beat off to their work of art... Personally I think that the Lycra is a bit too tight round the nadgers and they can't get a girlfriend Gimme an out of control Lada going head to head with a Kamaz anyday

    How many E34 530 manual Tourings

    Well there are just 9 left on the road that were originally registered 1993-1995 and my prediction is that those will all go for gearbox donation when they come up for sale. There are a further 21 from 1993-1996 on SORN and I guess most of those don't have engine or gearbox Finally in 1996, there were 172 registered so probably about 180 were originally imported.

    I think we've all done daft things. I dropped a bolt down the timing chain case on my m535. I was being sensible by putting the bolts back in their threads for safe keeping. Last one spun in my fingers. Clink rattle clunk it was in the bottom of the sump. Cue a day wresting the sump off to retrieve said screw!
