    3 gens of the 5 series

    To me, those pictures illustrate how the 5 should have evolved from the E39.

    You posted in the wrong section mate, jokes go in the "Fun Stuff" section.

    And the E39 is still the best looking.

    I buy Asda smart price washing up sponges for that job.

    E39 Touring ebay

    We're all different i suppose, I can't stand all black, so dark, dingy and depressing.

    I know there are a few Sierra fans on here, so how about this beauty. Can't be too careful i suppose, never know when you might come across the odd kangaroo in deepest darkest Somerset. Oh, and no, it hasn't got floodlights fitted to the roof, that's just the camera angle, but if you look carefully you will see a green CB aerial.

    Great pic's Mark, if you could send me the Interceptor and the mk1 Escort I would much appreciate it, thanks.

    My F10 M5 slightly modded

    Love it. But I would have left it white.

    How do you remove front seats?

    And don't turn the ignition on with the plugs disconnected, IIRC you'll get an airbag fault light on the dash.

    anti theft screws for license plates. Drill through ok?

    There is no right or wrong way of fixing them, it's up to the individual. Can't speak for other models, but on the E39 there are plastic fixings in the bootlid specifically for screws to hold the number plate. If you're worried about rust you could use stainless screws. As previously stated I use the black/white/yellow caps so you don't see the screws. Personal preference but I've always regarded sticky tape as a bit of a "bodge"

    I would add that I also used the black/yellow plastic number plate fixings as well, so they don't look all that bad.

    I had anti theft screws fixing the number plates on my last car. There was a spate of number plate thefts in the area where I was living at the time. They weren't interested in the bumpers, they were nicking the plates for petrol station drive-offs, nice and easy when they're held on with sticky tape. My neighbour had his nicked and the police told him that his registration would be added to a database that the garages use, and to expect trouble getting fuel for several months. What a ball ache.
