  1. E34 Business RDS unit display problem

    There is someone on ebay that repairs the ribbon on those ... I imagine someone will know on here
  2. Choosing an E60 M5

    Point (1) The main dealer serving our E34 540 manual lost the service booklet while the car was in for service during 2005 So missing service history booklets can happen sadly. Point (3) BMW do have a central base for their warranty and service history .... But service details like mileage etc are normally kept at the dealer that has serviced the BMW concerned ... ( But are normally lost if the dealership changes ownership)
  3. Choosing an E60 M5

    100 % I would also add ... check BMW dealer work done by contacting the dealer concerned

  6. Marmite interior?

    Interior is lovely ... Very 1970's Leyland seats
  7. Scratched the car!......

    Life and soul Would be a shame to spend his own cash on repairs and two weeks later someone slides into the back of his motor.
  8. Scratched the car!......

    Wait until spring before repairing ... Most rear end bumps happen during the winter months.
  9. Anyone know anything about this 535?

    It's not the best in the country ... I know of one on the E reg Black on black leather blinds which has low miles ... original plates etc etc If that worth that ... This guy's must be worth 30k
  10. E34 Headlamp Cap wiring replacement

    I've used insulation tape before without issues.
  11. The transmission cooler on our recent field find 540 is kaput ... We have tried the likes of ECP etc without luck .... I know BMW have them in stock ... But at over £600+ I'm not keen on that idea Do any fellow member know of a firm which might stock these coolers as i'm not keen on using second hand. Carl

  17. 1998 540i Touring Spares or Repair

    What price are you looking for
  18. Windscreen Replacement

    The prices jump after the original parts stock runs out ... The e34 M60 accelerator cables were £26 ... These are now £57 . We were lucky finding the complete front screen trim and clips brand new still in the box on ebay for around £65 one late night.
  19. RIP Malcolm Young

  22. 1994 BMW E34 540I/6 - BK35093

    17/11/17 So with TBL relaxing somewhere in West Bromwich waiting for her paint work holiday to start ... I've had some spare time I know from one of her former owners ... No not Will That TBL did have loads of paper work and service history receipts .... Sadly these never came with TBL ... So the only option was contacting BMW GB Which was done ... The result is below ... I'm surprised by the number of BMW holidays Date of Visit Dealer 27/08/2004 Cooper Tonbridge 24/05/2004 Cooper Tonbridge 09/01/2004 Cooper Tonbridge 06/01/2004 Cooper Tonbridge 29/12/2003 Cooper Tonbridge 25/09/2003 Listers Kings Lynn 27/08/2003 Cooper Tonbridge 20/08/2003 Cooper Tonbridge 09/01/2003 Cooper Tonbridge 27/09/2002 Cooper Tonbridge 20/09/2002 Cooper Tonbridge 15/05/2002 Cooper Tonbridge 08/05/2002 Cooper Tonbridge 27/12/2001 Cooper Tonbridge 14/11/2001 Cooper Tonbridge 26/10/2001 Cooper Tonbridge 30/04/2001 Cooper Tonbridge 21/02/2001 Cooper Tonbridge 11/01/2001 Cooper Tonbridge 14/12/2000 Listers Kings Lynn 15/03/2000 Cooper Tonbridge 15/03/2000 16304 Vines (S) 11/12/1998 16355 R Stern 09/12/1998 16355 R Stern 08/11/1998 14123 Rydale N 12/10/1998 16355 R Stern 22/09/1998 16355 R Stern 17/08/1998 16355 R Stern 14/08/1998 16355 R Stern 20/05/1998 14123 Rydale N 03/04/1998 16355 R Stern 06/03/1998 16355 R Stern 20/02/1998 16355 R Stern 12/02/1998 16355 R Stern 02/02/1998 16355 R Stern 23/12/1997 16355 R Stern 23/10/1997 16355 R Stern 13/10/1997 16355 R Stern 14/07/1997 16355 R Stern 20/03/1997 16355 R Stern 14/03/1997 14123 Rydale N 27/02/1997 16355 R Stern 16/01/1997 16355 R Stern 02/11/1996 14123 Rydale N 30/09/1996 16355 R Stern 29/07/1996 16355 R Stern 29/03/1996 16355 R Stern 28/02/1996 14123 Rydale N 08/01/1996 16355 R Stern 06/11/1995 16355 R Stern Sadly most of the above dealers are long gone or i would have made a new service book.
