    Top Gear to get worse.

    From years of TG being a 'must see' programme for me with JC, RH and JM at the helm, it doesn't even register on my radar anymore. Those three were a unique blend and it simply 'worked' week after week. Yes it was all silliness, piss taking and road tests of cars that most people couldn't afford or simply weren't practical in real life but it was to some degree escapism and a bloody good laugh. That might appear to be a narrow minded view, but for me that's how I feel about it.

    What's the fluid capacity of the system?

    Put this query in the E39 tech section. People are sober in that part of the forum.

    PAS fluid leak

    Similar happening to mine, but to a much lesser degree going by the OP's photo. Just a very faint 'mist' on my reservoir which returns every 200 miles or so, so not that often in my case. I think it's the seal in the screw cap - this has reminded me to do it!

    Electric cars to be mandated 8 years earlier

    Not only this, but in years to come what will be the rulings on big ICE cars already 'out there', be they petrol or diesel? New sales is one thing, but would 'grandfather rights' be applied until they die off naturally? Intetesting times ahead......
  8. In very good clean condition, bar a 5cm scuff on one. The tyres are virtually toast unfortunately and can be discounted as part of the price, as despite have a load of tread remaining they are cracking on the shoulders due to age (2007!) The last MOT in February highlighted and warned of this. They still perform fine however, but for how much longer? Collection only from RH6 which is a few miles from Gatwick Airport. In the second photo down, the scuffed wheel is second in from right, with the damage at around the 3 O'clock position. £195

    Thanks.... Not much else really - there are two very minor lower bumper scuffs, one front and one back, which need attending to if I'm being picky. And now I've got the wheels sorted, it's just an updated nav screen/system which I'm researching at the moment.

    Thanks mate, I'm well chuffed with them. As for the tints, I have no idea on the percentage. I would imagine that they were part of the spec when it was sold in Japan. What I can say is that they are very dark, to the point that you can barely see if anyone is seated in the back. Not to everyone's taste but I like that sort of thing, and looks particularly good against the silver bodywork.

    Cheers Dan. The car is actually quite dirty on closer inspection, but yes it just appears to be so clean. Wouldn't be the case with a dark colour...
  14. I'm really made up with the 65s I fitted yesterday, so I found an excuse to go out and do a few miles...
