  1. FFS!

    I bet the knobber motorcyclist who was overtaking slow-moving traffic by crossing double white lines at school-run time in Guildford the other day won't upload his footage... as he lost control and skidded to a halt and stalled his bike when he realised he wouldn't be able to squeeze past me coming the other way. I had to move close to the white lines due to cyclists using the cycle lane on my nearside. I had previously seen the same tosser with his helmet cam overtaking stationary traffic over a pedestrian crossing.
  2. Death in the family

    Condolences Paul, I hope you can come to terms with it. Thoughts are with you and your family.
  3. Best cheap anti theft solution?

    Hidden switch to interrupt the fuel pump power supply.
  4. Any pics ... later than 2003?
  5. 525ix refreshed

    Well done on another E34 Touring restoration; they are lovely cars whatever engine and transmission.
  6. V8 curiosity

    My first V8 was a minty E34 540i/6 Touring, sadly missed. My second V8 is an Alpina B10 V8 Touring, sadly broken. My third V8 is the sole rhd Alpina B10 4.6 Touring, with nothing sad about it at all
  7. Any watch Fans if so let’s see them

    A Breitling B-1, an Omega Baby PloProf, over half a dozen rare and complicated Seikos, a couple of very complicated Accurists, a Raymond Weil dress watch, my Dad's 1960's Citizen manual with alarm, and about a dozen other curiosities. Most are battery but half a dozen are automatic so I have a six watch winder with seven extra places and another box full.
  8. E28 Head Lights Removal question?

    OP, post where you are and someone might be able to drop in and help.
  9. E28 Head Lights Removal question?

    Have you got a little jet lighter or chefs blowtorch? A little heat always seems to work wonders.
  10. Best place for 540 auto transmission cooler.

    I found an new OEM item on ebay.de a few years ago when I needed one.
  11. I'm pretty active on bigcoupe but can't recall this character.
  12. What's being worked on today?

    MP, a couple of questions for you if you don't mind? Can you test and repair E24/28/34 era Motronic ECU's ? Can you clone/make exact copies of ECU's ? For example, making a spare ECU for the exact same car if you are given the original ECU and a spare ECU to use as the spare? I'm thinking of similar generations as the first question, i.e. E24/28/31/32/34/36/38/39 cars.
  13. My E26!

    That is fabulous! In a similar vein I picked up a nearly-but-not-quite-as-garish brand new 1980's Alpina jacket from ebay for ... £9 !!!!!! P.S. Mrs Sharkfan says we're both retro-idiots. I'm not quite sure what she exactly means but I'm fairly sure it's not complimentary.
  14. My E26!

    The fact that your car gets driven and is still in such spectacular condition is a huge credit to you. I wouldn't lose a moments sleep about losing a subjective judgement against a garage queen. Hope you had an enjoyable weekend anyway.
  15. BMW E38 740D BI-TURBO

    Never made in rhd.
