  1. Lear Amps

    I suspect that they are as expensive as their jets. Unless someone is giving it away, I would suggest you forget it.
  2. Insurance Hike

    I agree that fossil fuelled cars will continue to be targeted, but insurance is about risk, not what’s socially acceptable. I would pose the same risk in an electric car. A 30+ % rise cannot be justified by even the Green Party. If I didn’t need it to pull the caravan, I’d tell them to stuff it and get rid of the car.
  3. Hit and run story

    Someone knows.
  4. What would you do .. keep it or sell it - E39?

    Inclined to agree with that last comment. If you flog it you’ll get peanuts, so don’t spend more than you have to. Just keep it clean, keep it going and keep it.
  5. Insurance Hike

    I’ve just had my renewal notice from Post Office Money, who seemed quite reasonable last year. With no changes to circumstances and less than 4K miles a year, it’s gone up from £370 to £495. What is going on?
  6. New Fridge!

    We got last week too. It’s called Yorkshire.
  7. Bmw cherry popped!

    Welcome Tom. Get the ‘niggles’ sorted and tackle the rust as soon as the weather improves. The car will be all you hoped for, I’m sure. Make sure the cooling system is A 1. Overheating kills these engines very quickly. Keep us posted.

    Welcome. All the best people have e39 Tourings. Hope you love yours.
  9. To close for comfort !

    Lucky escape. Not the best vehicles for tackling snow covered hills.
  10. What are you eating right now? ONLY PICS

    The cake looks good and the the tea-pot is ace. I’d like one of each please.
  11. Road Tax Fine

    Allows someone ready to make a profit out of someone else’s misfortune. If everybody did everything right, think how many debt collectors and associates would be out of work.
  12. Selling mercury

    Specialist metals company? Johnson Mathay or somecsuch name?
  13. NKOTB

    Hi Simmy. Glad that your problems are only little ones. As you say, if can’t get an answer on here, then no one knows!
  14. E39 Rear Cup Holder £25

    I’m not knocking your very good offer, but considering how flimsy these things are, I would rather fit a couple of bathroom fittings!
  15. New Datsun GTR?

    I’m on the list to wave to one as it goes by and put a piece of paper on the road to get a souvenir tyre print.
