  1. You'll need a full respray on that IMO, otherwise you'll have thirty shades of pink->red. Get the sill covers off and have a look underneath - I'd expect there's more under there than you might think. Forum member Sepia (Mark) works at Owlsbury Accident Repair, and can sort all this out for you.
  2. Nice work Jimmy. MOTd by Xmas, yeah?
  3. Phil Crouch at CPCPE.com. just bear in mind that he's hard to get by phone. Email or popping in (he's in Amersham) seem to be the best ways to contact.
  4. They're good tow cars. My old 530d did around 20k dragging a car on a trailer, didn't complain at all.
  5. Has the old e36coupe / bmwowner.com forum died? Not been there in a LONG time, but noticed it's not there any more...
  6. I've got a facelift SE version of that, and it's brilliant. Good choice, Sir.

  8. Pretty sure that whatever the check control fault is, pressing the button on the overhead panel should turn it from flashing to solidly lit. Are there any lights illuminated on the overhead panel?
  9. Have you unplugged the rear clusters and tried it?
  10. Bung a 188 in it instead. But bear in mind that any used LSD will be utterly f*cked by now and will need a rebuild anyway...
  11. Get in touch with member Tims, he might well have.
  12. Are they from an E39? If so, the centre bore will be too big and you'll need spigot rings.
  13. Yes!
  14. was it knocking on the test drive? Could just be bad luck. As for MPGs, how many miles have you done? Don't judge before 1k has passed - youre not used to it, nor it to you. And don't piss your only dealer off already!!
