  1. Just out of curiosity I thought I'd have a look on Copart for E39 M5s... FFS how much... https://www.copart.co.uk/lot/28658497 seems an awful lot for what's left... https://www.copart.co.uk/lot/28192797 be curious to see how much this one goes for... The estimated "retail values" are amusing to say the least...
  2. This looked interesting... but looks as though it's been bought... the listing ceased this morning... I'd be on ebay having a looksie... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2008-Ford-Ka-1-3-Zetec-Climate-/182571321695?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=jOyLDmEDXCbsQXXdHFS0Sf3hAFE%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
  3. I also liked him in Shout at the Devil and Gold (mine) both of which were books originally written by Wilbur Smith. Very much films of an era....
  4. It's possible the dash pixels are FUBAR and the tester has miss read the display... My tester had the same issue this year but as I was sitting in the car I was able to correct him....
  5. I had a Tracker on my last car provide by Tracker, I took out a 3 year subscription initially circa £350, after it lapsed Tracker never bothered contacting me to renew so I didn't bother as it didn't actually help on insurance premiums etc... Wind the clock on some 7 years after the subscription lapsed and the timing chain guides got ingested I had the car recovered by the AA. On the way back to my garage from Sanbach Services I took an automated message from Tracker telling me my car was moving whilst the ignition was off...when I eventually got home some 5 or 6 hours later there was another message telling me the same information on my home phone. Despite the fact I had no subscription the tracker was still active and being monitored, if the car had been stolen I've probably of had to pay a fee to them to get the location details but all the same I thought it was a great service despite no longer being a customer.
  6. You may actually running okay, take it all the way to the limiter and have someone video the readout to actually get the max figures. It my be higher than you are seeing if you are backing off before the limiter.
  7. Yes there was an improvement in performance, but also fuel consumption was improved as well. The ones I got were from a guy in Latvia who a sourced a load of them with the housings and was letting them go for US $275 a pair as part of a group buy on the M5 board, I bought a couple pairs as at the time they were really cheap in comparison to dealer sourced MAFs. How are you testing the MAFs? are you using the hidden dash menu ? If so what gear are you using? 3rd gear is the best to use as it gives more time to take the readings although you'll need to be on a "private road" to bounce on the limiter.
  8. On my previous car the last time I replaced the MAFs they were reading around 126 and when the new ones were dropped in and the car had done a few miles they came up with 147 un-adjusted. IIRC when adjusted/corrected the figure was nearer to 151.
  9. I'm quite happy to make things up as I grab stuff from the fridge, freezer and cupboards. But my staple success to go with a hearty beef roast are the yorkies... 4 eggs 10-12 oz plain flour 1pint half milk, half water Dash of salt Mix it all up until no lumps, let stand for 30 mins at room temp. Grease /oil pan / muffin tin Warm up pan and oven to 240 degrees, pour batter (7-8mm deep, too deep and they won't rise) in to the pan and place in heated oven for 10-15 minutes, lower temp to approx 200 and continue to cook for another 20 minutes... Should be enough to do 2 full size meat tins or around 30 individual muffin tin size yorkies... Sort out the beef gravy and dive in ....
  10. Nothing to be gained by changing all of them ... Save your money and change only the faulty ones... Shop around and you can probably find them for circa $80 - to do a couple shouldn't take long at all - probably 30 minutes.... When I had one replaced I got charged £50 for the coil pack and £12 for labour.... Welcome to the board
  11. If it's the one I'm thinking of the owner was particularly anal about the quality and finish of the wheels... I suggest you hop on to the US M5 forum he mentions and do a search in the E39 section for Rimstock. If his attention to detail follows through to the whole of the car it looks to be a good option.. do the usual DVLA MOT check etc to see for advisories etc.
  12. Not sure on the reporting... in the article it says: Charging one car requires a similar amount of electricity as a typical home uses in three days, and simultaneous demand at a local level could damage networks without costly reinforcements. Is that true.... ? I was under the impression it would be a couple of £s max....
  13. With Gatland & Howley involved it is un-surprising... Although Warburton says he's 100% fit.... what with him and North in the squad you could argue there will be a few players ready to jump on the next flight out to NZ when (not if) either of those get's injured... Liam Williams get's a place.... yet hardly a person in South Wales thinks he should be in the Welsh squad let alone the Lions... his lack of defensive tackling will be heavily exposed .... Scotland can feel hard done by with both Liam Williams and Johnathan Davis being included. Neither of whom did much IMHO to justify a place in the Six Nations when Seymour and Lamont are left behind along with Cowan and big Jim H !!
  14. Looks like an attacking set up although a few inclusions and exclusions which will stir debate...

  15. Yet again bloody Jimmy Krankie is getting the coverage by the media... FFS there are other home nations....
