  1. Quote request - new E39 service logbook

    Probably. The one you buy from BMW will likely say duplicate. Get one from ebay. Cover might be different
  2. Quote request - new E39 service logbook

    Never seen that style on an E39 before
  3. E90 320d LCI jumping out of 1st gear with a crunching noise. Only done 43000 miles. Been told its the box??
  4. Falken FK510 tyre

    FK452 were excellent tyres.
  5. Nice low miles e34 535i Sport

    Originally an Edinburgh car.
  6. BMW E39 M5 Rod Bearing & Chain Guides

  7. Dont do it! Resale value will be affected for sure
  8. Japanese Import E39s

    Very simple. Different spec, Generally no S/H, More expensive to buy initially due to low (unverified) mileage and less rust.
  9. Japanese Import E39s

    UK Alpinas do not have limiters either.
  10. Japanese Import E39s

    Will always be worth less than UK models. Not worth buying unless something special like M5 or 540i or Alpina
  11. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-BMW-BBS-alloy-wheels-7x16-ET46-Rims-Jantes-RX229-Cabriolet-m-technology-E36/182956010753?hash=item2a99072d01:g:OrEAAOSwW6BaLGlA
  12. £100k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????? That would be crazy if it was a straight car ut a CAT D ?!?! Guy is high on Alpina exhaust fumes
  13. M Sport Steering Wheel e39 + airbag

    Looks like a prefacelift one. Is it single or dual stage airbag? Will it fit an E36?
  14. I will take some pics soon.
  15. 318TI

    Ive just bought a V Reg with the intention of making it into a track car. I am a novice so figured it would be better with something low powered and liked the feel of the ti. Has some bubbling on the body which needs attended to. Any pics of your stripped one?
  16. 318TI

    Just bought a 318TI. Anyone have any experience of these? Similar in character to the E30 318is except its not a stupid price and have a better driving position. Cant drive it normally on the road. It just want to rev rev rev!!!!!
  17. Oh forgot to say. I just bought one today. A 318ti.
  18. Only in the UK. They are crap full stop. The fact that a head gasket needs fixed on a car due to poor quality or design says it all. Lovely. A refreshing change to see a young driving something interesting. I know a young lad that bought a Merc 190e as his 1st car.
  19. RED X?

    OK Then Redex`is snake oil, what about Forte additives???
  20. Oil Analysis

    What is this oil analysis all about then?? Can it really tell me the state of my engine??
  21. Real M5 ownership costs?

    Agree it does not have much of a feel good factor sitting inside. Agree with most point raised above but would still have it over a Scooby or Type R for that matter. Very different cars I suppose. Wouldnt say no to an Impreza 22b
  22. Hey - Ive got a classic!

    Or I could just be talking bollox, time will tell......... Indeed you are. Sorry, just saying.
  23. Most reliable engine is M57 3L ?

    The irony is my mate who is on here bought a new Toyota Avensis with a BMW engine and it went bang on the motorway. It was almost brand new.
  24. Real M5 ownership costs?

    I would have an E90 M3 over an E60 M5 any day! Epic engine let down by shit SMG gearbox. Sorry just my opinion. Also M3 will be cheaper to run.
  25. Hey - Ive got a classic!

    E30 325i Sports do not belong in this same sentence as the 318i touring. I get what you are saying but 523i touring will be a long time coming by which time most owners will be dead. Also most people will not spend the money required to keep these cars right and rot will kill most.
