    3night break suggestions please

    If you’re ok with ferries, how about Dublin?

    Simple electrical connectors

    Simple waterproof and cheap. Fits the bill for me.

    Hello everyone from a new member

    Hi Steve. Presumably you are going to fix it yourself. Good luck.

    Buying part worn tyres

    As above, who buys a S/h car and immediately buys brand new tyres? No one I’ve ever met. But I wouldn’t set out to buy used tyres, unless they were winters and from a very trusted source.

    New forum member into E28s (and E12s)

    Welcome to the Forum. Hope your search for a car goes quicker than for the garage. My son has a rust free E21 and he loves it. They are out there, keep looking.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Got it through it’s MOT on the second attempt, thanks to that sodding handbrake !! The drum looks capable of using a shoe that is 50% wider than standard. Has anyone ever found such a shoe?

    Welcome Col. Looking at the forecast, it could a while before you get the camera out!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Good fix black cat. I’ve just stripped, cleaned and adjusted the handbrake, ready for impending MOT. Can but hope!

    MOT time - not sure what to make of it...

    Sort the issues in your own time and be thankful you got off so lightly.

    Hello from Sweden!

    Welcome aboard. Your top three missed out your wife. Mistake?

    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?

    Lear Amps

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

    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.

    Hit and run story

    Someone knows.

    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.

    New Fridge!

    We got last week too. It’s called Yorkshire.

    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.

    To close for comfort !

    Lucky escape. Not the best vehicles for tackling snow covered hills.

    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.

    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.

    Specialist metals company? Johnson Mathay or somecsuch name?

    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!

    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!
