    Need Help...Broken M5

    My 3.8 needed a MAF and it was just under £700 a good few years ago and it was tough getting it due to not being made then so thinking how BMW have hiked a lot of their prices for older stuff it doesn't surprise me

    Air Suspension - Arnott vs Aerosus

    If that is about AEROSUS bags then defo .. what a difference new bags make .. as for fitting ..I just placed it in place with one hand and guided into the hole and leaned round and popped a retaining clip on then the brass fitting .. longest bit was jacking up and taking wheel off

    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 )

    Permanent Running Indicators - US Style

    If you run the indicator as a DRL then you have to have a white light showing at same time .. so sidelight would need to be left in place

    Permanent Running Indicators - US Style

    I had these in my E34 ( and now in my E36 ) .. I got one of the US members on here to send me the actual bulb holders and a bit of the wiring loom ..the running lights run on a lower wattage than the actual indicator bulb ( its effectively a brake / side light bulb ) I guess you could wire it to sidelights for power but its a bright bulb to be on constantly.. another way is to dremil a small hole in indicator unit and wire in an LED for light
  15. …Beetle… 1997 one ( Mexican version so less rust to worry about ) white , basic , 1600cc .. not sure how I will get on with this but I thought I wanted a white one for a So Cal themed type VW Lots of stuff online to make these pretty cool looking , will I become a VW addict .. lets see ! More pics to come

    A cool E36 .........

    So probably a limited market for likes on here but I have to say this guys E36 is way up there in the style dept for the show scene .. its a stunner I think. The show that it' the cover car for looks pretty good too .. I think there are a few on here go to it here it is on Youtube - > https://www.youtube.com/embed/9Q73a8aVDZE

    Insurance Quotes For M5

    I get that , I don't think you are being considered a new or inexperienced driver .. I think for a 22 year old that is a good quote for a high performance car ..my comparison was based on him being new and paying a decent figure for insurance .. for him to insure my E39 530 Sport is £8250 ! So in relative terms of age and experience and living in London I would consider your quote quite decent for your age ..

    How much to ask?

    Are M5s not Japan red .. bit bright fro Imola but could be the sunny pics

    Insurance Quotes For M5

    my son is 17 and has an E36 318TI Compact and pays just over £1000 for it so to get an M5 insured for just over double is good going ! Its worth pointing out that other young driver cars such as new Corsa 's / Adams etc are usually around £1500 too

    New wheels finally on.

    a red E39 is always stunning looking and the wheels are just right ! Don't spoil it with these ricer black kidneys .. stay true to the marque and leave them chrome .. they stand out when in chrome for the marque which s the goal not stand out as being an aftermarket add on

    its defo a 97 one converted from LHD to RHD which might explain the metal dash ..Polo seats in this one

    a lot to learn I think .. I has a metal dash but other ones have a moulded dash etc .. and the flat window thing .. again not sure.. I am hoping the Mexican beetles are just a late version of the last of the 70s line models ... this could be a money pit lol

    E30 with a twist is finally on the road

    very nice and a more door model too .. that is stealth boot badges tho .. I would need to re align them at the right place and take the Nismo badge off .. bra is very cool IMO

    Motorcyclist films himself at 189mph

    Hmm .. Oki doki then .. we will just leave this here

    Motorcyclist films himself at 189mph

    bit harsh from d_a_n1979....irresponsible yes ...pulling a wheelie on a bike ...is it any worse than a wheel spin or a bit of spirited driving ....we all do that .......let's face it he has to be a half decent rider to show off that skill and there was no one about bar his mates 188 mph ... not right on GB roads I agree but not worthy of 21mths in a jail either. ...you could cause damage to someone outside a nightclub and get less
