  1. Small accident at the NEC last week......

    We've had two now an early 944 like that and a 944s. My brother in law had a turbo and I liked them all. Chassis is superb but but they are a bit short on power without the turbo though. I'd like to try an s2 with the 3 litre bottom end. My main gripe is for me the a post feels a bit close to my head but a nice classic to have.
  2. Cleaning pale leather

    Whats the best way to get the grime and dirt from pale leather before conditioning. Ive read something about steam cleaners, microfibre cloths and APC but what are the tips to make it easy? Ta
  3. Cleaning pale leather

    That might be over kill but will bear in mind!
  4. Cleaning pale leather

    I have the usual gliptone and autoglym stuff but was wondering about the more stubborn in grained grime you get.
  5. Space Saver ‘ditching runflats’

    No but same rolling radius so usually they are a much higher profile tyre.
  6. Very odd service history

    Have people found dealers willing to help with the info?

    Holy moly!!!
  8. My E26!

    I have a BMW accessories catalogue from the 80's. man there's some cheese in there! i also have an m watch with a rotating polarised face as the second hand so it goes dark and light
  9. Z4 e85 mats - black

    As title i seem to have a set of genuine BMW Z4 floor mats. I know some people on here have them so before i brave ebay thought i'd try here. Both in good shape and not worn through though drivers has a crease so might need an iron. £60 new so £30 plus post

  11. Very odd service history

    Thanks Mark, ive dropped them a line.
  12. Very odd service history

    Mark, how did you get this information from BMW - is it a service they offer?
  13. E30 M-tec Front Seats Into an E28.

    I think its the width of the runners so you can simply swap subframes - though of course comfort and sport frames are different.
  14. Programming new key fob

    The type above is a sigma AC38 and you can find these and the AC110 on ebay which work. There is a programmer which i had that i used to code these to the 3g alarm (i did it on my e36 M3) At the time my local car alarm/ hifi shop reckoned they could code the fob. The programmer was sold on here to (i think) Azmontana - he may well still have it?

  16. Your Thoughts On ECU Map Repository

    Fair use would be use on your car not copying the file and handing out to friends. As sandip says i don't believe we can support this.
  17. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    I didn't think it was that bad from a quick glance so unless Andy knows it i think he maybe being flippant! Wasn't keen on white with cream interior and certainly didn't feel £37k!
  18. My E26!

    ^ Yeh the metro was interesting, for the effort I think you'd do something a little less prosaic. Different strokes and all that but you do wonder about the mind.....
  19. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    Thanks Richard - i didn't think it was the outgoing model as i see one in my road on occasion but in white and as i say i'm not clued up enough to tell the difference from a cursory glance - the e28 took my gaze!
  20. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    Was that not a G30 M5 though or is that not out yet? I get confused with the newer models
  21. Your Thoughts On ECU Map Repository

    I suspect you don't have that right. I would think it's like bootlegging music or software. When I design buildings copyright remains with me. I grant licence to implement the design in a specific context I don't allow it to be replicated on other sites. Think about it you paid for the map and then hand it out for free that's x number of customers the original mapper has lost. If its it's your own map you wrote then that's fine though probably poor business sense!
  22. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    They may well be original. Just felt a bit thick too me and not the usual twin pin stripe. It's not a uk car so who knows.
  23. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    The 528i was lovely but I thought the stripes were wrong? Didn't think that was £37k of 635i either. Was the bmw stand missing an f10 m5? Great at show though
  24. Silver e39 Sport Touring

    On Saturday an rs turbo sold for £39500 at the nec. Madness!
  25. My E26!

    Do they take into account that you could more or less build a new mini from available spares if you wished? A new m1 or the Vauxhall next to you not so easy.
