    Is it on a classic policy? As a yoof i always found any mods hard to cover.

    missing pixels

    From memory you remove trim (wood or whatever) from either side of steering wheel. This reveals screws allowing you to remove the surround that holds the light switches. There are then screws to release the clocks. Various things need unplugging but not hard.
  3. I'm pretty sure the last filters I fitted had charcoal in them. Don't recall them being expensive.

    It's the springs/ struts located in the roof that hold the lid up. Bit of a faff to change as you can't see what you need to do. Need to do mine.
  5. Think we're agreed filters are a good place to start.

    Camshaft & Injector advice

    I seem to recall mustang injectors fit. Exact details I can't recall I'm afraid. I did have a set but sold them. Replacing the cam is diy. Did mine in the dining table
  7. Not even drawn through the intake vents under the bonnet? I don't mean in the car.
  8. Was interested in these when I had mine: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F152951160400 At the price it was almost worth a punt to see if it could be made to fit
  9. In the past I've sprayed detol antibacterial spray into the intake where the filers are with good effect. Bets with system running but new filers a good start.

    Looking for a weekend convertible?

    Z4 3.0 if you don't need back seats. Or a clean 330 or e46 if you do though I like the ,merc w124 convertibles too but prob over budget. Depends what hat you will use it for.

    Welcome. I'd start with a good wash, a service, fresh fuel and battery and go from there.

    '95 518i running issue

    Do you think it could be leaky injectors? perhaps fuel collecting overnight and so its running massively rich at start up until burnt off and it clears its throat? Does it seem to be temperature related ie ok once warm?

  23. From my car. Just swapped for one with tricolour stitching and better leather. Basically undamaged but for the start of some drying out but the shine has gone from the top right quarter or so. All works as it should. Ripe for recovering or use as is. Boxed up up and ready to dispatch. £85 posted.
