  1. Wheels to fit my E34

    Great link
  2. New owner of M5 3.6

    Congrats on the purchase, the car looks great. I've been trying to buy a specific black e34 3.6 M5 similar to this one since October, had i know this was for sale i'd have come to take a closer look! Let us know how you find it.
  3. Hi E60 boffins, There's a nice but expensive 550 up for sale but its a 30th march 2007 registered car. Would this make it LCI or not? What was the exact date that they switched over and more interestingly when did they stop producing the E60 550i sport, as the few that come up for sale seem to be 05/06/07 Thx Clem
  4. When exactly was the LCI Switch

    Cheers to both of you, a colleague at work just told me the same. I need to replace the e39 at some point, i've had searches on Ebay, Autotrader, Pistonheads, car and classic etc since Oct 17 but impossible to find a well specced and maintained, post 2007, sub 85k 550i sport.
  5. When exactly was the LCI Switch

    So is this bad boy LCI? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2007-BMW-5-SERIES-550i-M-Sport-4dr-Auto/253397846360?hash=item3affb04958:g:Zb4AAOSwFqVZsr5T
  6. Introduction, new E34 M5 3.8 owner...soon!

    Sorry to hear this. Will the car be up for sale again then?
  7. Avoid suspected clocked E39 Mora M5 on gumtree

    I went to see this one. Its a dog
  8. 540i error codes

    A lot of 540 thermostats fail open, its an inexpensive fix
  9. Good quality/wallet friendly control arms

    i went to C3BMW and the lot came to around £400, Lemforder.
  10. E34 535i Sport manual breaking. 1990 G reg.

    How do the drivers side front and rear doors look?
  11. Some tw*t has nicked me car....

    This is such an bizarre story. Fingers crossed she finds it, keep us posted I work in central so let me know if i can help at all
  12. How Long Have You Owned Your E39?

    5 years, 30k miles and some superb drives across England and Europe
  13. E39 M5 query

    Off to view an E39 M5 this weekend, reg MH02 JJU (previous plates GEZ67, P500SDD, M6RAS). Knowing how good at gathering intel you guys are, is anyone familiar with the car, have i missed anything etc. I checked the MOT history and looks kosher... Supposedly HPI clear, no accidents, 111k on the clock etc Thx Clem
  14. E39 M5 query

    Well that was a waste of time and petrol / HPI. Told me it was immaculate and recently serviced. It has recently been (badly) resprayed, orange peel all over the place, missing pixels, no audio, dvd, sat nav, tmc hardware in the boot, looks like its had a knock front drivers side, pollen filters filthy and could not provide any documentation for service, seat buttons missing, only one key and what killed it for me, 7 miles range left in the tank. Was up for £10k, i wouldn't have paid £6 for it.
  15. E39 M5 query

    cheers, so far it all seems legit
  16. e24 -genuinely getting rare now

    Awesome. Like the polished looking lips on the TRX's Both beautiful cars
  17. Need space in a Garage? Surrey

    Pictures speak a thousand words. So we're still negotiating, and other parties are competing to be transparent, but here's the space. It will be reroofed, re wired and will have cctv installed int he next month. If we manage to get it then the cost per space will be circa £100/month + a little more if you want to trickle charge etc Thx
  18. I've potentially found a dry replacement for the current damp garage i'm using to restore my E34 and store an MX5 track car. Only snag is its a little large for my needs and the other person i would share with. Its in Surrey, just off the A3, large private Barn with Electricity etc. If you're looking for a space to store a car, trailer, or to do some restoration etc let me know, we have space for at least another 5 or 6 cars. Costs tbc but should be reasonable PM if interested.
  19. e24 -genuinely getting rare now

    Its later... any pics?
  20. Nice update. Had exactly the same issue on my e34, unwittingly bought front struts with the thicker diameter and had to source correct top mounts.
  21. I used a place in leatherhead which were excellent. Called leatherhead motor company.
  22. Mortgage switching - what's everyone thinking?

    I have a fair sized mortgage, so the last time around the fee worked out cheaper than the extra interest payable. Will do the same maths.
  23. Need space in a Garage? Surrey

    Valid feedback. I trust too much...
  24. Mortgage switching - what's everyone thinking?

    OK so just had a meeting with my Mortgage lender, rates offered are super low. Nationwide quoting me in the region of 1.14% for a 2 year tracker to just above 2% for a 5 year fixed.
  25. Mortgage switching - what's everyone thinking?

    Funnily enough, have a meeting with my Bank today about this. My 4 year fixed rate ends in a year, checking out my options... Currently on 2.39%
