    Ignition key help - What are my options?

    Got you. So there must be different keys. So the replacement opens the door but won't start car. I would surmise then then the ignition barel has been changed and the replacement key not synced. Bmw should be able to supply a correct barrel in the same way they can supply a key and from the replacemht key that I suggest would match the doors. Seems you have a couple of issues that over lap!

    Does the original key unlock the doors via the barrel ie manually and start the car?

    For similar reasons ( wing got dented by a careless Parker) I've got a wing and bonnet from another car of the same colour. Both original paint and though only the bonnet is on the cookout match is spot on that and some other odds and ends was £100. Its kit kit just the cost to repair you've got to think of next years ins premium.

    Sounds like the replacemt key was never synced with the car. It's pretty easy to do.
  5. I'm with cool hand. I want the grip on the front that does all the steering and braking. Whilst I prefer a matched set I've mixed brands front to rear to use up a fitted set on a new car. Years ago ive had cars with random tyres (without electronics mind) it's not ideal and I wouldn't now but I don't believe it's quite as dire as is made out.

    Winter tyres - it's that time of year!

    We had hankook icebears on the 330d. Used all year round and seemed decent. Never got to test them properly in snow but dealt with grotty roads well enough.

    Jeez what a mare.
  8. Maybe but if properly done and relevant maintenance on the engine it's going to be cheaper than building your own. 3k m5s are long gone. I recall a slightly tired but essentially together 3.6 on eBay a few years back. I was tempted but bough by a memeber here called Pad. It was something like £2k
  9. That's rather nice. Being sold by classic md too.

    I was thinking if you could get one in the same colour. Obguess the the debate is what the claim does to next years premiums.

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Am I allowed to say I don't Seats with a different carpet would work but with the green I'm not sure. Each to their own of course and an e34 m5 touring is something I wish I had

    That's a bummer sadly I think I'd suck it up and get a used door and avoid the insurance. Had a car keyed once bit the bullit and had it repaired but it was a painful £250 to stump up.
