    540 starter motor

    You're correct, it wasn't that difficult, it was just a PITA doing it lying on your back, the worst part was actually getting it out. IIRC I had to drop the ARB.

    540 starter motor

    I changed the starter on an E39 535 which I'm assuming will be the same as a 540. It was a while ago, but as far as I can remember, I had to do it from underneath and I think I had to dismantle part of the suspension to get it out. Not a job I would look forward to doing again.

    G30 petrol or diesel

    In that case I'd be inclined to go for petrol. I'm a big fan of diesels, I love the combination of torque (it's torque that gives acceleration not bhp) and fuel economy, but I would be a bit nervous about spending my own money on one at the moment with all the current uncertainty about what the government may or may not have in the pipeline for diesel cars. That's why I lease, if the bottom falls out of the diesel market it won't affect me as I hand the car back every 2 years.

    G30 petrol or diesel

    And are you buying with your own money or will it be a company/lease car?

    Champagne 1 on eBay

    Too good to be true then, shame.

    What did you try before you went for a G31

    I don't think it's always about being able to afford it or not either. I could afford to buy a brand new car but I choose to lease.

    Goodbye and thank you

    Ah right, that would explain that then. Thanks.

    Insurance Hike

    Yeah, couple of days ago, I'll do another one when I've got a minute.

    Insurance Hike

    Funny that, I did Gocompare and Moneysupermarket for mine and don't recall seeing Tesco in the results.

    Rare Leather goodies

    I thought those rules only applied if you weren't a Gold or Platinum member, although I stand to be corrected.

    Champagne 1 on eBay

    My god, that looks stunning in the pics. Very well priced too compared to a lot of the other Champagnes you see advertised If it all stacks up in the flesh.

    I don't believe it, I think I'm turning into Victor Meldrew.

    Worried about parking dings on your BMW?

    I know how he feels.

    For everyone that wants an even bigger X series....

    I agree, looks like they've used the same grille as the 7. I was looking at X5's on eBay yesterday and noticed that the grilles have been gradually getting bigger and bigger with every incarnation. I think the last X5 was as big as they can go without it looking shite.
