  1. New boiler or fix old one?

    Our boiler is the original boiler from 1975 and apart from the timer and lighter thing is original.
  2. Jap 540i

    Looks very nice with black leather etc and has missed years of salt murdered winters .... Edit I like the square rear plates.
  3. Suspension parts supplier

    Lemforder items do last far longer than most and are the OE maker for BMW ... I did use one of TRW's centre links for our E34 540 Which last around 12 months and 8,000 miles.
  4. OEM Velour floor mats

    Halfords do a special order mat with the heel plate and trimmed in Nubuck Leather for around £48. These do compare well with the £100 + premier mats ... I'm sure Stefan will be updating his blog with pictures soon.
  5. New owner of M5 3.6

    I'm surprised David has sold his beast ... But i'm glad your now living the M5 dream
  6. Advice please viewing a E34 M5

    BMW will sell you one of their new 6 speeds for £5k and your old box
  7. Ford Escort

    My nemesis in the motor world was our 1984 Granada MK2 2.8 Ghia manual ... It must have been one of Fords Friday lunch time specials . Our local Ford dealer service manger would walk away on sigh of it. .. Which was replaced with a Capri 2.8 Turbo ( I never should have sold)
  8. E34 M5

    I would rather take the Silver example on ebay with the Buffalo Leather with 15k in spare cash
  9. 1994 BMW E34 540I - GF22093

    I Did PM You Mate :D.. Again Thanks For The Kind Words Cheers Mate... Be Aware If You Don't Own An E34 Yet Once The Bug Bits Your Bitten Forever.. Update Eighteen 9/2/2018 We have covered around 100 mile and everything seems to be going great I've put a video together so you can view one of our short journeys. All For Now. Comments Welcome As Always.
  10. Kit's E34 535i

    That's great news, I'm looking forward to future progress
  11. 525iX won't start

    I'm pretty sure replacing the new Hella CPS will sort it ..
  12. Replacement Sill Panels

    You are correct that repair panel does come with the jacking point ... The price is about right
  13. Seeing this M5, thoughts?

    Joking apart You really need to check for rot including all jacking points/seat belt points/ rear mounting points ... If you enter the M5 and think of old ford MK1 Escorts it's leaking in water ... Which could be simple fix or rotten bulkhead drains ... I would also give close inspection to the lower rear arch for recent paintwork/cheap fix (Rot spread up the arch from the rear sill)
  14. Seeing this M5, thoughts?

    What with the spec on that M5 and work done ... I'm surprised it's still on ebay ! The Buffalo Leather was a 3k option alone ( Just the leather).
  15. Another E34 540i ... in Calypso!!

    Don't wait too long ... recently seen average Orient Blue/Black Leather 540 auto with 170k get 4.2k
