  1. Appropriate courtesy car!

    You must have known the labour rate before you went in?
  2. The grand tour

    Depends - in days gone buy you had a bolt on splined adapter to allow you to have knock on wires (ie single winged nut) for say your triumph spitfire but you can get some pretty naff bolt on wires which i suspect these were.
  3. The grand tour

    Did the S3 change again before it hit the snow? appreciate they could have just swapped tyres but thought it was a different one again? I don't think there was a jag there i didn't like
  4. 16" turbines fit over 530 brakes?

    I have some winter shod turbines for mine but have been loathed to go down to 16 from the standard 17 but might just bite the bullet!

    I knew that would be your choice Tim

  8. e46 330d manual touring 2000MY

    Going to be putting this up for sale soon once ive cleaned it and hoovered out all the detritus from the kids Had this since 2008 and prior to that it was owned by my aunts father from new so a 2 owner family car. We took it over a 37K and its now on 125k or thereabouts. Been a reliable work horse and has not let us down - you may have heard me gripe about a weird power delivery that i could never sold ( i threw maf sensors, pressure convertors, Map sensors, fuel pumps, vac hoses etc at it and still no joy. finally the turbo gave up (less than 500 miles ago) so fitting a new one transformed it - goes like it should now! Basically the PO drove it so gently ( he hadn't clocked the duff maf when we got it) that i think the VNT was sticky and no amount of use would free it off. rear brake pipes replaced, various bushes replaced as and when, recently aligned, new rear dampers etc So it has a very full and comprehensive service history hat i can bore any interested party with. Not a huge spec its cloth and low OBC but black sports leather can be had for £150 - i just never bothered as i rarely drove it. Bodily its scruffy - one arch has a scrape the other some rust coming through despite being garaged from new until we got it and me regularly cleaning out the arches - there is a stud apparently behind which is where it all starts It has various marks and scuffs and some tool keyed it down one side - we took the view it wasn't worth spending money making it pretty seeing as it was my wifes family hack. So its good and bad - a lowish mileage manual touring with excellent history and provenance but a little dog eared but should be an excellent work horse for years to come. If you no a good painter it would brush up well i think. Comes with either 17" hankook ice bear winters on alpina reps or the style 44 7 spoke with goodyear efficent grip both with loads of tread. Selling as its just not used right now and won't be used much for the foreseeable future so just taking up space Pictures will follow post clean but asking £1600 PM me if interested. Pic is it when i got it but current pics can be provided

  10. What to do with my 535?

  11. Spotted! My Old Girl For Sale

    I don't think he's removed anything tbh just added!
  12. Spotted! My Old Girl For Sale

    Nothing that can't be put right though and parts punted on.
  13. What to do with my 535?

    I'd at least take it for an MOT and see whats what.
  14. wheel alignment camber toe with weights?

    That's right the hunter set up gives a target ride height and is weighted to achieve this.
  15. Yep, i did it again...

    I'm down to one magazine now and that's ppc. A bit silly but a decent read. I then go for the evo/ octane twin pack for a holiday.
  16. E39 sport front bumper

    Dont think I got one.
  17. E39 sport front bumper

    No fogs, inserts, pdc or headlight wash It's a bare bumper with mesh. Generally In good shape but has a small scuff and crack on the passenger side. Easily repaired and painted. Open to offers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Selling old car magazines

    Selling one by one isn't worth it imo unless you have nowt better to do. I've sold job lots at a buy it now and got rid rhat way. I know they've gone to a trader but good luck to him if he wants to double his money selling one by one!
  19. e46 330d manual touring 2000MY

    9 months - one advisory on handbrake effort - imagine that on a BMW
  20. 518i Not starting. Any advice very welcome

    Let's start simple. Do you have fuel in the tank. Obvious but often overlooked. Secondly are you getting a spark? easily checked by removing a plug and holding it against the head (with insulated pliers) and cranking the engine.
  21. Prospective buyer

    Fair enough. Just watch for serious rust in the e34. I can sell you a nice 330d manual touring to cut your teeth on
  22. Insurance Advise Needed

    Lucky you saw it and got her details. My Mrs parked up in town and came back with a dented wing, scuffed light and bumper. The latter painted not a month before. No note and no way of knowing who did it. I'm still fuming.

  25. Insurance Advise Needed

    Sorry Jay are you saying an accident in a car park is not covered by insurance? That sounds like crap to me!
