  1. DVLA Error - 57 instead of 51?

    Good point, no idea. I've not actually checked what the annual tax is for this one. I'm assuming £305.

    Could do, it's a better look than drilling holes and having screw heads showing. I use Unibond double sided pads on my bike plates, as well as on one of our other cars. Sticking it straight is usually a mildly stressful experience though!
  3. Sunny Saturday – E28 out of hibernation

    Lovely car! Great photography too and love the use of '5' symbols...
  4. I'm currently looking at an imported 2001 E39 which has been registered by the DVLA as a 57 plate, instead of a 51. Both the V5 and DVLA website clearly say 51 and a 2001 year of first registration. I'm thinking that the 51 and 57, being fairly similar in appearance dependent on writing style, or a person's vision(!), could be entered into a DVLA computer incorrectly, but surely the DVLA system would have a fail safe here? In this case in other words, a 2001 registered vehicle must be allocated a Y or 51 or the 'computah sez nah'..... As far as I've always been aware, the DVLA do not allow a vehicle to appear younger than it really is so this would need to be sorted if I buy it. Although, having a 57 plate E39 would be unique!

    That's what I thought, I have the very same on my SE.

    The plinth in the OEM link won't fit the car I've pictured. It's for a pre facelift SE, in other words my current E39. Or am I missing something here?
  7. E39 Road Presence

    Agree Vanhool. The E39 still ranks as one of the best looking four door saloons on the road - still!

    Soz, just saw this!
  9. Sport Front Bumper - Number Plate Mounting Options

    Dunno, one that's suitable for that car. What's the difference?
  10. Sport Front Bumper - Number Plate Mounting Options

    No idea what there was there in the first place....
  11. Sport Front Bumper - Number Plate Mounting Options

    Do you have a link that you can dig out for the plinth Dan? Mucho appreciated...
  12. Sport Front Bumper - Number Plate Mounting Options

    Cheers Dan, so would the M Sport holders work for this car? Presume that what you see in my photos isn't the normal euro set up.
  13. Washer bottle cap required,

    That's actually more expensive than the one I bought from Vines a year or so ago.
