    E28 m5 timing chain

    Last time I checked (which would have been 4+ months ago) one of the guide rails was NLA. The alternative was to use the S38 part and whittle it down to fit. As Duncan says, give Phil a buzz, he’ll know the current state of play. I’d expect pricing to be in the £2500 ballpark, I think.
  4. Have you replaced your father-in-law’s breaker bar now?

    Breaking X5 E53 4.4 Black, Sport,

    I changed the seats in my X53 to ones with lumbar support, it made a massive difference.

    Headlamp aim too low

    The adjustment on an E28 is delightfully old-school - you just turn the adjusters to push the top and bottom in and out. Your "mechanic" needs a slap.

    A cool E36 .........

    Honestly, I don't get it. It looks like a police car, but no-one ever looks at a police car and says "wow", so I don't see why you'd look at this and be impressed.
  8. You're making generalisations to suit your narrative. Plenty of people have nice things without being financed to the hilt. Plenty of other people end up upside-down on car finance because they want a shiny new one every year.
  9. If you work harder you don't need finance.
  10. You all seem to worry a lot about other people and what they think.

    body shop required

    He's not on here much, but Sepia (Mark) knows his way round an old BMW and is at Owlsbury Accident Repairs in Crowborough. Worth a chat to him.

    Go with dealer parts - what you spend up front you save in jiggery-pokery getting them to fit.
