    FS: BMW E34 520i Auto 1994

    How long before some 24 year old tattooed mong puts coilovers and shit wheels on it? Keep 'em peeled on Facebook!

    Top Gear to get worse.

    "The comedian and former England cricket captain" I thought he was just a cunt. You learn something new every day. It wasn't bad with Matt LeBlanc. I missed the entire last series as really, I CBA with it.

    1998S 318i Touring £795

    1998 S 318i Touring, manual box, air con (works), sunroof, 4 x electric windows, passenger and front door airbags, Style 17 cross spoke alloys, colour is Ascot green with grey leather. It's in decent nick; In the last last month it's had new front wishbones with solid E30 type balljoints and eccentric M3 rear bushes, rear dampers and trailing arm bushes, front brake backplates, front ABS sensors. It had new front discs, pads and calipers late last year, four new Goodyears 14 months ago. Z3 short shift gearlever and purple tag E46 rack. Drives really, really well. On M Technic springs, a nice clean set I picked up last month. Body tidy; it's had work on the rear sills before I bought it in 2014 and I've done the rear arches - starting to get scabby but not rotten. Tailgate is perfect, good front wings - one was new 3-4 years ago. MOT September. I've replaced all the metal brake pipes and hoses in 2016. It had a new LUK clutch 25'000 miles ago. Mileage is 182'000 with FSH, original book pack and two keys. Starts on the button and goes well. Uses no oil or coolant. It's a good car - not mint, but not a tatty neglected shitbox either. £795 - not really open to offers as a mate sold a really ropey one last month for £550. Comes on the original S***GAN numberplate - it was a BMW GB car when new. Not interested in any swaps or p/x, just cold hard readies.

    E28 528i Manual with LSD, breaking complete car.

    Breaking 1982 528i Manual with 3.45 LSD, factory air con, Getrag 265 overdrive box, ABS and headlight wash wipe, front chin spoiler, OBC. Car is rotten underneath as it's been stored on a farm since 1996. Front wings will definitely save, other panels are scrap. Marine blue cloth standard seats in fair condition, dash looks to be excellent, unsure if cluster works until (if) engine can be made to run. Wheels are the TRX metrics - tyres are all rubbish but the spare looks good. Complete exhaust looks as though it was new when the car was laid up. It has the three spoke early sports steering wheel with the thick lower spoke. More pics as and when I start pulling it to bits. No bargains though - I had to pay handsomely for this.

    Wanted E3 Engine

    Mounting lugs on the block are in the wrong place. A good 2.8 is a fine engine anyway, solid 170-180 bhp to whip it along.

    Wanted E3 Engine

    Correctomondo! I forget the casting number on the old E3 heads but I'm not 101% that the E28 pistons will match the E3 chambers. However, the 358 head on E28's has the mounting flange for the pump so you can drill it through for the pump lever and two mounting studs. I have as suspicion that pre 1980 distributors run the opposite reaction to later ones - they changed them on the M10 engine so you'll need to check. Using the E3 cam with its fuel pump cam and distributor would sort this out.

    Wanted E3 Engine

    You'll likely need an electric fuel pump as the E28 motor has no provision for a mechanical pump. Converting an E3 from carbs to LE Jet is a plan though.

    Nice BMW themed desk clock

    I've still got the TopGear style V8 coffee table I made 4-6-6 years ago - used a genuine Alpina B10 V8S block for it. It needs cleaning up and either flogging or re-using.

    Help needed.

    If I'd posted anything at 11.29 last night, it may as well have been in Swahili.

    May I have that in legible English please?

    Help needed.

    A solicitors letter (about £50) is your first port of call. At the end of the day, they cannot supply the goods ordered. I would contact the manufacturer direct as well as an alternative dealership - what make car?

    E34 535i Sport manual breaking. 1990 G reg.

    Found a couple of bits from this - rear lights and the black centre console complete. Any offers before the bin man gets them.

    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.

    Bloody women drivers!

    What a tedious bore, intent on sucking the last drop of fun from life's marrow.

    Out of interest, were you all for banning the F1 grid girls?

    E34 Fuel Pump Replacement (M50B25TU)

    I bought this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-InTank-Petrol-Fuel-Pump-For-BMW-5-Series-E28-E34-BMW-7-Series-E32/263228220244?fits=Plat_Gen%3AE34&hash=item3d499fe354:g:K80AAOSwvGZZyMjO It's made in China, just like the ones in Bosch and Pierburg boxes. It seems well made and smells of preservative oil. I bought it as a spare for mine to go in the boot. They're easy enough to change.

    Burt Reynolds has died ...a legend I think!!

    He looked so frail of late so it's not a shock. White Lightening, great film. But not as great at Boogie Nights. A true legend, R.I.P.

    Learned something new today about the E38 7 Series

    Nasty wheels, plate surrounds, horrid E38 iL badge and the drivers side looks as though it's been painted by Torvill & Dean.

    E28 525e - Etas Ready to Deploy to Nova Scotia

    Yes, I'm sure that was the place. My old man had a red Porsche 964 and knew them - we're going back 10 years now so they may not remember.
