    I remember as a boy of about 10 yrs old my dad talking about changing the family car,we went to the garage that he always used and the choice was either a year old Cortina 2000E or a brand new Marina 1.8,I can still feel the disappointment when he chose the Marina, He did redeem himself a few years later by buying one of the first Mk5 Cortinas.

    ^ I used to do that in the days before the littl'un arrived and when the wife didn't want to go shopping for a new sofa..........That's all I did in mine today, drove it to a soulless industrial estate to look at sofas.......and the littl'un spilt some food on the door card that her mum unbeknownst to me gave her!

    Bilberry, Tardis to clean with a hit of Purple Rain if needed. Sealing with 2 layers of FK1000. 2 coats of GTechniq T1 on the tyres before putting them back on. Had to buy a torque wrench though as I'm abit far from my folks now to borrow one. All finished now, time for a cold one!

    I'd buy an m5 from a non BMW dealer no probs. As long as it's well under 60k miles.

    Government guidance is IMO misleading on this point. There is no mention of having to display the supplier or postcode here. https://www.gov.uk/displaying-number-plates/overview However, if you read the actual legislation, you will find it says the plates must comply with the British Standard BS AU145d. If you read that standard you will find that the supplier's name and postcode, as well as reference to the standard must appear on the plate. Legislation here: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2001/561/contents/made

    ADE are well respected in Darwen (junction 4 M65); so probably around 40-50mins from where you are I'd speak to them and see what they say

    I'd have a diamond white 2000E with the dark brown (tobacco) vinyl roof, tan velour and the 3 speed auto. Really suited the car more than the manual.

    Bodged my wobbly foglight. Turns out the retaining bracket had broken, so I epoxied it back on. It's still not perfectly straight but it's better than it was and I've been for a drive and it hasn't broken again yet. Also, got the cable holder clips for the boot (they were part number 61138355134; £1.60 each from dealer), put them on and the tailgate is now back together.

    You can machine polish these out, but to be fair the BMW is pretty good at withstanding attack from squadron leader sparrow. Lol most folk refer to their car as being a babe magnet......

    Seagull and pidgeon sh*t is the worst as there's usually a lot of it. I picked up a couple of 'burns' on the roof last year. I also had a big problem with sparrows nesting in my open garage until I took measures to deter them, and finding 10-15 calling cards overnight was the norm. I was beginning to think of the car as some sort if sh*t magnet. Sent from my Vodafone Smart ultra 6 using Tapatalk

    Ah.. bollocks! I thought that load will actually not make it drop (if the car is on). I also thought that it would throw a code if there was an issue. A quick look shows that the Sport bags are more expensive than SE, unfortunately (for me). It seems you can never learn enough about these cars. Or by the time you do, it's 20 years old! Cheers, Ed

    Paul, How do you find the tone now these are fitted? I was offered some small silencers at the shop when I got my muffler delete as they bloke reckoned they 'cleaned' up the sound. Not really sure what he means to be honest but just occasionally I do think the fully straight pipes are just a tad too loud.
