    BMW 318ti Compact - Retro daily

    Given the cost of new sensors and a s/h ABS block, it'd be nice to refit the ABS to it. The wiring for it is all still there.

    Itv4 +1 the blues brothers

    Not even close. Gone in 60 Seconds, 1974. Let that be your benchmark.

    Remove and refit headlamp

    The E34 grille was designed by a maniac. It's the most appalling design. E32 grilles can be removed in 2-3 minutes.

    Any British Leyland fans here?

    The Austin 3 Litre was rear drive though - a weird thing with self levelling Hydrolastic.

    E34 535i Sport manual breaking. 1990 G reg.

    Complete car in Diamond black with black leather trim (sport seats), manual adjust (non electric) with through load rear seats. The leather is in really nice condition. I'm tempted to put the front seats in my E32. Stood for at least 10 years outside so body is grim. It won't start due to the rings being stuck and not enough compression to get going. I've had the lid off and the head is nice inside with a very good cam. Mileage is about 140'000. Wheels are some nasty E46 7 spoke 17's with shit tyres. Definitely a breaker and definitely not selling complete! Head SOLD Block - suitable for rebuild £100 SOLD Sump SOLD Engine loom - SOLD Gearbox SOLD. Prop £100 Wheels SOLD Diff SOLD Interior SOLD Racing Dynamics Steering wheel and gear knob £250 the pair. Not in bad nick at all and now ultra rare. Wiper rack SOLD OBC kit £70 Bonnet and grille panel £100 Bodykit SOLD Side sills and door bottom trims SOLD Instrument Cluster SOLD Rad £50 ECU SOLD Air flow meter SOLD Quiet heater fan £40 Steering box SOLD Rest of the bits are here - orange indicators, lights, sunroof panel, keys and lock set end so on. May be a couple of decent doors, bootlid is nasty, exhaust scrap, brakes and suspension are all Titanic spec and probably best left on the shell when it gets weighed. No bargains here I'm afraid but it's rare stuff now and I'm greedy. Pics to follow in the next few days.

    The front seats were sold 4 months ago but I've no idea who to. Anyone forgotten to collect them - they were paid for in January.

    Why are any of you giving that horrible cunt Rupert Murdoch your money?

    A few little jobs done on the old E34

    Dod you ever contact the garage on the old rear screen sticker and find out who the previous owner was? They wouldn't recognise it!

    E28 528i willnt start

    528i, LE Jetronic. Could be anything but fuel pump relay is the obvious first place to look. Joining the three pins* on the relay socket to power the pump and injectors will get it going. It's the tall black relay by the fuse box, seven pins. 87 - red white 87b green violet 50 black yellow

    Do many of you run 80s / 90s cars as regular drivers?

    You already have a 90's car that you can use everyday. It's only a 520i Auto so will never be worth a lot. Keep it clean and just use it, it'll be fine. Hire a car to go on holiday with. It's already had the bits that often wear out replaced I use 20 year old BMW's every day but mine are high mileage cars that I gave peanuts for and they are one major problem away from the bridge. My 318i Touring owes me £1500 over four years including actually buying it, four new tyres, MOT's etc but excluding fuel. I do virtually all fixes myself which really, you have to be able to do.

    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.

    Hit and run Red BMW 1 Series 'KYY'

    I'm sure someone posted up here about this - well I saw it today............

    Pointless BMW accessory of the week

    What's with 'Tourer' these days. It's 'Touring'. Tourers are old Rover junk.

    £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.

    £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.

    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.

    Considering F10 M-Sport...

    And likewise, how many N47 owners post their tales of woe on an internet forum? 2%?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
