    1989 730i, 1994 318ti, 1997 318i Touring, 1998 323iA Touring.
  1. BMW 530i SE e39 ONLY 45K from New! Rare Example in Pristine Condition

    Get rid of that F10 and buy this, and run it into the ground.
  2. £38k E34 540i touring

  3. Hit and run Red BMW 1 Series 'KYY'

    I'm sure someone posted up here about this - well I saw it today............
  4. Pointless BMW accessory of the week

    What's with 'Tourer' these days. It's 'Touring'. Tourers are old Rover junk.
  5. £38k E34 540i touring

    Not me! I broke a Calypso 316i that I bought from Dave 'No Touring' around 2007, did okay from that but it was very low mileage.
  6. £38k E34 540i touring

    No it was Sterling silver Jon. K reg with ACS tat (genuine) including front and rear bumpers, boot spoiler, rear window spoiler. ACS wheels, steering wheel, cloth M3 Vaders and a slipper. It was like a 1 year old car underneath, sold the engine to Scott the Welsh Zoner for £550 because it was so mint. You could literally wipe the dust off the running gear and it was black paint underneath. I paid £480 delivered from HBC, broke it to £3500. Asked top dollar for everything and sold it all in 2 months. Those were the days.
  7. 37k for an E34

  8. £38k E34 540i touring

    Lots of Jap imports are tarted up with this sort of stuff from new but are standard mechanically. I bought a 1993 325i Auto Coupe write off that was a Japanese import - AC Shitzer wheels, bodykit and S3 badges and according to the V5 it was an ACS S3 2.7.....no it wasn't.
  9. Considering F10 M-Sport...

    And likewise, how many N47 owners post their tales of woe on an internet forum? 2%?
  10. Front crankshaft bolt question

    What I did (too late for you!) is to centre punch mark the nut (M30 is a big nut, M20 is a 22mm bolt) and refit it to that mark with some Wurth thread lock. 390nm is fine with thread lock - that ain't coming undone. Use the Wurth stuff - it's about 30 quid but it's the bollocks.
  11. Low Mileage e39 530i SE - Whats it worth?

    Having said all of this, it's a lovely low mileage example of one of BMW's best efforts. Someone I know paid a LOT of money for a low mileage Japanese import recently, a 525i Sport. Not five figures but not far off. Bollocks to it, put it on an Ebay classified advert (with best offer) and Car and Classic for £4995. Of course, most won't pay that but it only needs one buyer who really, really wants an E39 and is fed up with looking at the usual 100'000+ miles shite. Where would you find a 530i Auto like this? The more I look at it, the more I realise it's almost unique. Faint heart never won fair maiden! Don't give it away in other words.
  12. Project bites off more than can chew

    Touring. It's not Rover junk! I would do a full loom swap from an M30 car. Annoying as I broke a 535i recently. Later cars from around d 1991 went over to an E36 style set up but the Bentley manual with a multitude of wiring diagrams might help you modify the existing loom.
  13. Low Mileage e39 530i SE - Whats it worth?

    I'd say £2500, £2750 at a push. It's an E39 and nobody really wants them. Given the mileage and condition, I wouldn't sell it for such a derisory sum anyway, but keep it. What on earth would you replace it with?
  14. Need some urgent advice - F10 rear suspension

    Mondeo TDCi, last of the old model (2015). For an everyday car, you need nothing more. Modern BMW's - brand new, run it for three years and out it. Lovely cars but there always something......
  15. Need some urgent advice - F10 rear suspension

    Anti roll bar bush. Is the weather wet or dry?
