  3. Windscreen Replacement

    i agree with Andy ... i have had 2 done .. you need trims at same time as install .. they are bonded in ..you cant clip them in afterwards. On my E32 i had the screen done and the trims were not usuable after removed so it got a generic rubber trim / seal fitted..it was a snug fit and looked OK but its totally different from OEM but i wasnt keeping the car so it done the job
  4. FS: E39 Black interior door/ dash trims

  6. BMW M5 E39 18" Original Wheels BMW Part No: 2228950, 2228960

  7. Aux cable input help

    @Marc 86 .. if you replace the changer lead with this AUX cable then the changer is redundant with no wiring and no power? How will this work ?
  8. I have to do my rear subframe mounts , looking at Meyle mounts or should i just polybush it while i am at it ... i havent driven an E39 with poly mounts ..interetsted to hear of any views / difference to the way it drives / general feedback before i do this ..is it a worthwhile mod over teh original rubber mounts ?
  9. 17 year old driver insurance oddity !!!

    so to update this the compact was a defo no go , the 530 was OK until renwal time and then it went sky high . Looked about at Corsas, Polos etc and they were all pretty dear for what they were so ended up in a 58 plate Astra Sri XPack for just a little more insurance than a Corsa. I prefer a bit of car around him rather than a small box so worth teh extra .. Its in his name , he can earn NCB so all good ... a decent first car i think
  10. FS: E39 Black interior door/ dash trims

    i got these in the hope i could swap for tech graphite but no joy so will just sell them ... 4x door trims in excellent condition 1x glove box panel in excellent condition 1x stereo flap in excellent condition ( comes with a single din fascia plate too ..i small tab on rear is broken off but still secures ) 2 x pieces either side of steering wheel in excellent condition 1x full centre console ..a couple of very faint scratches on left hand side of gear area ..not massively noticebale but there ( camera does enhance them i have to say ) Looking for £60 posted to UK
  11. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    you would think so ....its out of MOT and tax now ( still insured bizarrley )....and it's worth mentioning there is a Z3 in the other corner that has been there a year !!!
  12. NEC Classic Show -Fabulous 528i E28

    in a public car park i know there is a 635csi in white with black leather ..same wheels etc ..it has lay there for easy 8mths now and hasnt been lifted .. apparently there is a tragic story with the owner not returning.... based on that being worth 37k i bet its worth good money as it is very clean !! Not 37K clean but its a lovely car
  13. Beautiful 21k mile E34 525i

    The front has been painted at least ..you can see the number plate fixings are calypso as is the small part of the bumper bar behind the plastic .. this is silver so its been blown over but make no mistake .. its worth decent money for mileage and condition and its a lovely colour too ! And technically it should have a wooden gear knob on it !!
  14. DVLA SORN Question

    you can do it online ..new keeper can be done online ..when V5 comes thru you can SORN it ..DVLA are ok with this time difference
