  1. E34 535i Sport manual breaking. 1990 G reg.

    To add: I can do the interior with standard (non Sport) front seats with fold down armrests for £225. A couple of the door cards will need the inserts re-gluing, standard E34 stuff.
  2. 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 with good cam and rockers £275 Block - suitable for rebuild £100 Sump - £80 Engine loom - standard type and not the electronic throttle type £100 Gearbox - £450 on its own with linkage or £800 with prop, flywheel and manual conversion bits. Prop £100 Diff £250 - looks like it came off the Titanic and sold absolutely unwarranted because I haven't been able to test it. Interior - front and rear seats, door cards (at least one needs the centre bit regluing), carpets etc. £400. Front seats only £300. Racing Dynamics Steering wheel and gear knob £250 the pair. Not in bad nick at all and now ultra rare. Wiper rack £80. Slight play but not the usual nightmare. OBC kit £50 Bonnet £100 Bodykit - Front and rear bumpers, side sills etc. Needs painting but no nastiness and towing eye covers are all there. £400 Instrument Cluster £50 Rad £50 ECU £90 Air flow meter £70 Quiet heater fan £40 Steering box (remarkably good) £100 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.

  4. E34 steering wheel

  5. E34 steering wheel

  6. Recommend a commuter car

    Or a Volvo C30 for under 2 grand with low mileage? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201711081075496?price-to=2500&postcode=ng174gt&radius=1501&sort=sponsored&model=C30&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&fuel-type=Petrol&make=VOLVO&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1
  7. Recommend a commuter car

    May be a bit big, but a nice thing. Why pay more? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201710110175895?make=HONDA&radius=1500&sort=price-desc&price-to=2500&postcode=ng174gt&model=ACCORD&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&advertising-location=at_cars&fuel-type=Petrol&quantity-of-doors=5&page=1
  8. Recommend a commuter car

    No need to spend anything like 8 grand. £2500 these buys buys a good reliable car with loads of life in it. Look also at the Volvo C30, a nice wee thing that looks good and drives well. 2.0 petrols are unwanted but still good.
  9. Recommend a commuter car

    Petrol Honda Accord or Civic, two grand buys one with years of life left. Forget German stuff, it's not reliable enough and costs a fortune to fix. Volvos like the one above are a rebodied Mark 2 Focus built in Holland. Toyota Corollas are good too, typical Japanese, does what it needs to for folk who don't care about cars. Look also at 8-9 year old Kias C'eeds, decent cars with old Jap tech.
  10. fictional discounts?

    I made a decision never to use Cotswold after I stood like a lemon in the service dept for 15 minutes, being studiously ignored. My local Sytners do me just fine.
  11. Any watch Fans if so let’s see them

    I almost never wear a watch. With smartphones they're almost obsolete now. I think I paid £1400 for my GMT and £800 for the Datejust but, as values are only going one way (they've doubled since 2002), I won't be selling them too soon.
  12. Any watch Fans if so let’s see them

    1983 GMT Master with black bezel and 1967 Datejust. Both owned for many years.
  13. 520i stuck with a D

    That's helpful.
  14. Windscreen Replacement

    Not given away, but two bits of curved plastic trim for a Focus (for example) would be 70-80 quid. BMW still have stocks of standard plastic four spoke E36 steering wheels (the 91-94 pre airbag ones), a bargain at just shy of 400 quid. 400 fucking quid for a steering wheel that nobody actually wants. 'Let's price this at 75 quid, and sell them all off'. 'Great idea!' As for £2000+ for an E34 instrument cluster circuit board.................... No, their prices are utter madness. Do they want to sell this stuff, or not?
  15. Windscreen Replacement

    Yes they will - nobody else makes them! The last time I had a screen on an E36 Coupe, they were BMW parts.
  16. Anyone remember that scam artist from Northampton?

    I remember that episode, can't recall him though.
  17. Windscreen Replacement

    6 years ago, they weren't! Anything other than the correct seal will produce wind noise. I'd wait until you can get the screen done on insurance and let some other bugger pay for it. The existing screen isn't broken and doesn't leak.
  18. Windscreen Replacement

    Best start praying then. They are £188. Each. One per side. Plus VAT. Cancel, and get it done on insurance otherwise this will end up costing you a fortune. On all of my screens. the trims have NEVER survived. They go brittle and just break.
  19. Windscreen Replacement

    Make sure you have new trims BEFORE the screen goes in! Iirc, they go in at the same time - they clip to the side of the screen and it all goes in as one. It was on my E32 and all E36's. Buy them from BMW as well, not dear.
  20. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    Rusting wings and rear arches. A five footer!
  21. E34 / E36 / E31 / E32 Alarm setup

    Too late, bin day was Thurs.
  22. E34 / E36 / E31 / E32 Alarm setup

    I have quite literally, this week, thrown one of those in the bin after 10 years. Functioning and from an E36. 'Who the hell will want this old shit now'?
  23. M50 M52 engine bits including cylinder head, Vanos unit etc

    Vanos unit, MAF and cam cover sold.
  24. 1995 323i M52 engine for bits. It's broken a ring or something so runs on five and burns oil. 'Fucked' is the technical term. But some good bits: Complete head with cams, fits M50 or M52 2.5 and 2.8. £125 Nice quiet Vanos unit £40 Plastic cam cover £30 Set of 6 coil packs £50 Crank sensor £15 MAF £20 Short engine with problem above - no idea what until the head's off. £30 - useful for the crank, some rods and chuck the rest away. It's a steel liner unit and only did 50k.
