    E39 Alpina D10

    ............Maybe the wheel was retrofitted?
  4. Thanks. I have rear door airbags
  5. Do you have part numbers for the vapour barriers and butyl tape?
  6. I replaced mine just because mine had a lot of marks on it and a genuine BMW one was only £40 ish quid more.

    Mercedes E63s

    Always had a soft spot for the original CLS in AMG guise. My mate recently bought on and I had a "never meet your heroes" moment - what a let down. Lovely car but when you put your foot down in most situations the traction light just starts to blink killing power. Crying out for an LSD! Why AMG decided to put these performance cars out with open diffs is beyond me. Perhaps the CLS63 would be better as it has a less immediate power delivery and needs some revs - still has a crappy open diff though.

    Aegean Blue E39 M5 - For sale at a dealer

    That is a lovely car. The seller is asking a premium for the rarer colour combo IMO. I would say it would shift at £16995-£18995. Its looks a tad strong at todays prices but will it be in a couple of years? If the mileage was even 10k less then it would be more appealing. I was offered £13500 for my car on this forum a couple of years ago and was tempted but I wouldnt sell mine for £16k now but mine is 1 previous owner and FBMWSH.

    Shadow Chrome. Who are the best?

    You could have a small powder coating operation do a decent job. Lepsons are hard to beat. I had my m paras diamond cut so no actual experience of shadow chrome from them

    E39 M5 in Modern Classics

    I have no issue with the plate. 130i is pig ugly but cheap RWD fun
  23. I would much rather put my money into an M5 at that money. At the money will be safe. Each to their own I guess.

    Volvo V70 - 5cyl 20v Petrol is nice but thirsty or go for diesel which might be difficult within budget. V70 XC/XC70 Also nice. Audi A6 1.9tdi Avant - Find a late sport with 6 speed box or buy an Allroad and cry when air suspension fails Honda Accord 2.2 CDTI - Ultra reliable but might kill you with emissions leak into cabin. Honda will do a free fix if you survive Volkswagen Passat Estate 1.9 or 2.0 TDI - Leccy handbrake can be troublesome on newer shape Audi A4 Estate Subaru Forester TurboS - Guzzler
