    Woozers TV E34 540i/6 BK35191

    Here are some pics of my efforts so far. Bit of a plunge for me as I am certainly no pro sprayer but I can neither leave it to rust again or afford it to be done else where so. There were some pretty major scratches along both sides of the car so I have gone about removing the lot. Work in progress.

    There are just four rhd facelift B10 V8S Tourings, of which Greenelektas is the last and probably the most stunning, and just four rhd facelift B10 V8 Tourings, of which mine is the last.

    Caliper rebuild questions

    Bleed screw M10 x 1,0. CLICK Some copper grease on the threads (not on sealing surface) of bleed screw when installed will prevent it seizing.

    Lots of bits at the front. I've replaced the following: - shocks (Sachs) - top mounts - drop links - anti-roll bar links - upper and lower suspension arms - tie rods

    And solicitors or lawyers in the house.

    Follow the guidance from the Information Commissioner's Office: https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/raising-concerns/ There is a template letter to use - make the complaint in writing. This is a serious breach

    Good to know! If this falls through at least I have options. The discs are not an issue – I’ll replacing them with the mtec dimpled and grooved. Half the price!

    Caliper rebuild questions

    Well worth doing if you want the experience. You can pull the piston out with a grip or devise some method to use a tyre inflator at a fuel station if necessary. The caliper bore should be spotlessly clean. Use meths or a dedicated brake cleaner. Any traces of corrosion shoud be removed with a super fine paper, the idea being to not remove material from the bore(or piston) The tricky part is getting the outer dust seal to seat in position correctly. A few attempts may well be necessary. If refurbing, now is the time to paint them if desired. You need something hard wearing and strong. Powder coating is an option but whatever system you use, protect against contamination when bleeding. Take the bleed nipples with you as a pattern when purchasing.

    If you can get it home rather than in a yard I'd start there. Your in a better position if not incurring storage charges.

    Cold air intakes. Usually only fitted to the M5 with it's twin air intakes, the standard intakes are quite near the radiator and result in warm air being drawn in, cold air gives more power. The intake to the filter box is simply redirected to the front of the bumper.

    Future classics, ie worth something in 5-10-20 years time.. The idea is to keep it dry stored and mint condition without putting miles on it.. What ever drifters are using.. Nissan S13/S14 - R32 Skylines... Some of the old Datsuns are pretty cool and achievable on your budget, but they'll never be as valuable as stuff like god damn Escorts.. E36.. Give it a few more years and drifters would have killed 99% of them.. If you could get an M3 for £3k you'd be doing well, but they'll be like E30 M3s one day.. Might be worth looking for very low mileage, individual or Alpina 325/328 sport, something slightly more rare than the standard sport.. Supra/Soarer Twin Turbo ones only.. You'll do very well to find a mk4 twin turbo for less than £5-6k now.. Soarers have gone crazy in the last year, Iv broken 20 odd of them over the last 3-4 yrs, used to buy them for as little as £300, now you'll struggle to find an auto for less than £3k, manuals are £5k..

    Yes mate, technically Barton Hill, but can remotely book on at Avonmouth and Stoke Gifford (Bristol Parkway) too. I'm a "boil in the bag" just coming up to 2 years on the company now, i was one of the last lot of trainee's "off the street", started Jan 06 2014. Count myself really lucky as i can't see that happening again for a while. We've been assured that we are safe too, there's a new incinerator about to open at Avonmouth, and there's going to be a lot of work associated with Hinkley Point when that gets under way.

    M5 London

    supercharged m5 non runner

    Haha fair point !! I have never had my car dyno'd since I supercharged it with the meth injection filled and running with the 3 jets as designed. I also bought a brand new supercharger as the original one basically died on me. The new one was WAY better than my original which lasted from 2010 July to 2013 May. The replacement one was right and allowed me to pull way better. My car does not have a stock ESS Kit. It has a custom supercharger pulley pushing out close to 9.5 PSI (as opposed to the stock 6/6.5 PSI ESS setup) Custom made CCV system with pumps the in cylinder drag inducing crank case gases out (designed by the previous owner of M5 in this thread). Straight through Exhaust system with custom made manifolds. Aquamist Meth Injection setup. Few other tweaks to make sure heat/charge from unwanted SC gases are not recirculated through the engine again etc etc My car is pretty much identical to the car for sale in this thread. Same ECU Map too. We pushed things pretty hard and with a high Methanol Concentration injection I would easily say it ran well over 650HP, as proved by the car in the thread. The 640 HP is an estimate but quite a well derived one and I'd also say a conservative one at that.. I am definitely not one for an intercooled E39 M5 though. I made my points quite clear on the 'other' forum and actually got almost banned as one of the moderators was a mate of Raza's. We had several arguments about Air to Air Vs Air to Water Vs Meth Etc Etc. Unfortunately in a predominantly US forum, if a moderator was mates with a Tuner. you as the humble ordinary member...get F£$%ed ! Nonetheless there are ESS S/C cars that make well over 625 HP with Meth and no Air to Air intercooling. Check out the other forum. My car is awaiting a full on engine rebuild at the moment and when that's done, albeit without any Air to Air Intercooler, it will be pushing on close to 800 BHP. I will get it dyno'ed for bragging rights .....but for me its all about how it feels on the road and performs. My M5 pre engine rebuild would readily spin up its rear wheels in 3rd gear in a straight line, in the dry and make fun of F10 M5s and R8 V10s all day long. My good friend has a stock 2013 GTR. From 60 MPH in 3rd I literally leave him for dead. I am currently running-in my new M6 Gran Coupe, and when I get bored with it. I will be throwing some money at it to get it super quick too, but I will never ever sell my E39 M5. Best saloon car ever made I reckon
