    Cracking looking E34 530i on eBay

    in 3.0 form ? I had a 530 once and it was gash .. I know the 535 isn't much bigger in reality but seemed a huge difference .. maybe my 3.0 was a duff one

    A ‘P’ plate e34.

    still rare with that plate on it .. car isn't rare as it was probs sitting in a dealership and sold late on hence the P plate there is probably only a handful of them about TBH

    you would actually think that is a better place fro the accumulators to sit .. keeps them clean and dry instead of underneath car !

    Air Suspension - Arnott vs Aerosus

    haha .. yes .. you would think however my reasoning is Arnott supply one air bag that does SE and Sport .. they say the levellers etc will dictate the correct height but Aerosus which were recommended have two different bags .. the Sport one being slightly shorter so I am keen to keep the car right so will replace the two and keep the Arnott as an emergency bag I think the Arnott bag is OK as it did sit at correct height despite the other side being OEM Sport bag...but I like things to match

    Air Suspension - Arnott vs Aerosus

    I replaced a rear susp bag on the E39 in Holland and it was an Arnott Bag ..came with new circlip ....my right side needs done and I was going to order 2 Aerosus bags ( and keep Arnott as an spare ) ... has anyone any experience of replacing an Arnott bag and knows if the circlip is just universal and will fit a different manufacturer ( aerosus don't come with clips )

    Only in 'Murica...

    the floater rims are insane .. seeing the wheels sit 'still' as the car moves along is weird .. these things must cost an absolute fortune to build .. Hot Wheels have alot to answer for !!! but there are advantages
