  1. Thinking about doing both next year, Classic and 24hr especially with Ford making a return
  2. Picked it up Tuesday, last time i had a bike was 22 years.
  3. Congratulations
  4. I have not really had a problem with Woods either.
  5. Development for the E34's successor began in early 1989, internally known as "Entwicklung 39" and ended in 1995. The final design by Joji Nagashima was selected in June 1992 and later frozen for production under new design chief Chris Bangle. With design selection in 1992, the series development phase began and took 39 months till start of production. The domestic German design patent was filed on April 20, 1994, utilizing an E39 prototype. The first pilot production models were built in February 1995, with full-scale production starting later in the year. Taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_5_Series_(E39)
  6. Car MOT today, passed after a temp repair, good old rust, believe it or not drop link rubber split on the front, and was told put some tape round it and it will pass. Now where's Piper need a piece cut out for proper repair.
  7. Replaced o/s/r drop link, lovely job NOT!!!. Lucky i had a decent socket set and a couple of wobbly bars, plus big lever to stop lower ball socket from turning as i could not get on the flats with a spanner as someone previous had put the washer the wrong side. Hope that makes sense. Finished of Shadowline kit, fitted rear bumper corners with PDC holes thanks to Jay_w for them. Front door inner window trims fitted as well.
  8. Best thing i have done as well, Poole-Birmingham 26 pallets off load, reload a few stacks of empty trays and pallets and drive back
  9. About time, although it will not stop the got to get in front the truck muppet's, at any cost. Tosco's!!!! Well i expect them to still be doing 40, along with Wincanski, Maratimeski amongst few. I for sure will be doing 50, obviously this cant be done on all A roads, so subject to conditions.
  10. Knew i should have bought the plate, but spent too much at the time on other bits
  11. If the money came along i would love to turn my Tourer into an M5 Tourer
  12. Managed to order set of Genuine black floors mats from my local Stealer's for my 523 Tourer, was showing 1 set left at warehouse, thought they were not available any more. Happy days
  13. One of the best mods I have done as well Still got rear bumper trims to do, still trying to source with PDC holes
