  1. Thanks Neil, i did think about chapping the door to see if it was for sale .. i have seen it for years around the bay
  2. small world .it used to live just along road from me, never knew it was for sale ..there is a silver e34 there too in driveway is the 2.8 engine and box strong in the touring ?
  3. some fakes have a separate base plates that fits to the car....reason for this is there are plates for all different cars which you can then fix the mirrors to for the M5 look
  4. i am sure it cant be as the seller would have said but in the 2nd picture that looks like a crack !!
  5. I am sure i have investigated them all !
  6. Fuel filters were needing done and and EGR bypass pipe fitted , a noticable diference i must say
  7. no solution to compact ..quizzed the company that would cover the 530 but not compact..as Joss said its the preception of the car ..the compact could attract attention even before it moves , the 530 despite being more powerful and valuable apparently wont be subjected to what the compact could be ??? So ..the choices could be a Focus Ecoboost ( he has some cash for deposit and i said i would ' help' him with the rest ) or a Mini Cooper or just use his cash and insure the 530 touring The 5 is ideal as he goes to downhill tracks so bikes on roof , his mates in and space in boot..it is infact teh alround cjheaper option.
  8. Aviva will add him as a learner driver to both compact and 530 for £180 but after that no deal until he is 21 . Options now being looked at are a Focus or Fiesta Ecoboost ( £800 PA ) or a Mini Cooper ( £1200 pa ) a stag ..one of his dream cars or a spitfre with 6 cylinder in it !
  9. Sold , pls delate
  10. i see you had an S70 Mark ... great cars ..i still have one, a tremendously comfortable barge
  11. this is a great thread..I sold my Granada for a carnival red with black roof Cortina 2000E....then came the RS2000s !
  12. Mark....the Granada...had one exactly the same as my first car ..3.0 Ghia in classic Sweeney style ....it's now my biggest want but so expensive
  13. Ooft ... outstanding !!!
  14. finance on a car of this age? .. it used to be quite strict that the car had to be 10years or less when the finance agrreement ended ..times change maybe to encourage the buyer
  15. The adverts say finance available ...wonder how they can offer finance on that..at that age its outwith the car HP rules ?
