    New wheels

    was lucky and found a set of rare M6 Competition Pack wheels for a good deal on Fleabay CP wheels were half an inch wider front and rear and look great on my humble opinion! hope everyone on here is well!!!!

    New Plate :)

    HA! One of the great pics and i'm sure I don't need to remind you it was a beard trimmer (clearly put to good work in the early 0'ties keeping that tache pristine!) I remember this - but not the RX8 on my head?

    New Plate :)

    I like it dirty!
  4. I remembered you'd had and liked them while we were standing next to it on the stand! Im not to worried about the lack of power as even the turbo would be a fair bit slower than the M5 - looking forward to darting about in alight and nimble car. The car I miss most is the 318iS Touring I had from Jamie and that was light with 140bhp Picking it up from North Yorkshire on the 9th so got a nice 7 hour drive home to get to know it! Now to sit back and wait for older forum members to make wise cracks about not wrapping around a lam post on the way home.........................
  5. Brown velour is the best bit!
  6. So Dad and I thourogly enjoyed the classic car show again at the NEC last week - Richard Ps M1 was stunning and as always there was lots to drool over This year was slightly different as we accidently came home with more than we bargained for. Wed been planning on buying another car together has we haven't done a joint venture since the e28 M5 - classic car show was a good place to go to have a look at some cars on our list. TVR 3500 or Tamsin - maybe even a chimera e34 M5 perhaps lotus of some sort maybe Anyway, long story short we ended up putting deposit down on a 944 - another car we've talked about lots. Car is an early 1985 2.5 with 41k on the clock and fpsh Porsche club concours winner and in lovely condition. Comes with original alloys as well as those in the pics which are wider period alloys and has always worn the '944 FRA' plate It featured in the 924/944 bible written by Peter Morgan and there's a copy in the boot! Love the colour (Kalahari Metallic) and the awesome 80s brown velour interior. Looking forward to picking it up and enjoying some slower but nimble fun! And one of Dad looking slightly sick as we contemplate explaining this to my mum whose last words out the door were "don't buy a car!"
  7. Thank you - 13mm all round! lowered 35mm at the front on h&r

    Now you’ve had it on for a while - what’s the verdict?
  10. Had the M5 in for a tidy up and a few details: Front bumper re-sprayed Kidney and side grills sprayed contrasting body coloured / frozen black Black M5 badge Detailed + ppf on back bumper Engine steam cleaned Full wheel refurb Oh, and the engine cover done to match the Indianapolis red leather Took to many pics but sorry not sorry!!

    M5 Touring update

    I missed a whole debate on modding! Sorry guys! this is the first car where I've felt the oem wheels really do it justice. They're BBS and have a lovely concave on them. i did fall in love with some rotiforms but they turned out to be 2K a wheel!
