  1. Yet another dreamer...

    Poplar trim is hard to find though. I had a Champers II a couple of years ago. It was very, very needy. I needed it to be a daily and it just kept needing attention almost on a weekly basis. When the seal in the torque converter went, I had it done and then had enough. I loved the car but it didn't suit my needs at that time. Best interior of all E39's IMO, although I know thy are a bit marmite.
  2. I know Champagne II's command a little extra but £8k??? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201710070068873?sort=sponsored&advertising-location=at_cars&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&make=BMW&model=5 SERIES&keywords=champagne&postcode=cm167rb&price-to=10000&radius=1501&price-from=2000&page=1
  3. Lovely 530i Champagne 2 here

    Well, it ended with: This listing was ended by the seller because the item was lost or broken.
  4. Lovely 530i Champagne 2 here

    Agreed. 3 - 3.5k top level. That said, they are increasing in price.
  5. Lovely 530i Champagne 2 here

    That looks really nice - and the price is, to say the least, cheap at the moment but will go up. Plus cooling system replaced and new belts etc etc
  6. Alpina B10 V8 Touring 0012/1

    Was this the car that The Old Colonel had for sale a couple of times? I seem to remember lusting after it.
  7. E39 M5 Options List!!

    That advert is awful - almost agressive in it's tone. "Every wearable part replaced". Absolutely no way.
  8. Coding a new battery

    I agree. The total cost was £245 for battery, fitting and coding. Ouch.
  9. Coding a new battery

    A bit off forum here peeps, but a mate of mine has just had to shell out for one hours labour to get a new battery coded to his 630 (2006 vintage). Is this a reasonable amount of time for this? I would have thought it would only be a quick job.
  10. Car for my lad

    I'm all good here. Now retired and loving it! I've told the daughter that her first car will be around the 2k mark. Much more sensible as the chance of damage is greater in that first year or two of driving. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Car for my lad

    1.3k - I wish. Daughter turns 17 next year and is convinced she's getting a Fiat 500. I'm not so sure[emoji10]. How's things Anil? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi all, A bit of advice needed. I'm just bought some of the above, and wonder if I should be applying a sealant over the top of it? If so, which one would people deem a good product? Cheers Paul
