  1. Mot til November as well. Cheap motoring!
  2. Nice car but still don't see the value it has already reached! Can be as many problems with these very low mileage cars as something with 'sensible' mileage. I once bought a Range Rover Classic from Guernsey. Now I know all Classics rust but this one was particularly bad!
  3. Thanks for the replies. Everything apart from suspension is being changed, which I will do next year, to exact sport spec, even the front inner wheel arches and splash guards. Have changed headlining, pillars etc to anthracite. Hopefully the sport bits will always be worth something, wouldn't be a massive job to convert it back. Not looking to make a profit but just wondered if, when the time comes to sell, I'd be best selling the sport bits separately, which seems to be the case. I'll post some pics when I've completed the work..
  4. Had my 2001 530i se for a year. Firstly, I completed a full service including gearbox filter and oil change and coolant overhaul. I've now got all the bits to change to 'sport' spec. Wheels, bumpers, trim, boot spoiler, sports seats etc. Already fitted seats and will hopefully complete the other work soon. Not cheap getting all the bits, probably cheaper to sell it and have bought a sport! But the car is in such great condition, was a 1 owner, full bmw history and 104k. So, when complete will my car be worth as much as a genuine sport or will it always be valued as an se? I'm keeping all the se parts so could transfer it back to se spec and sell the sport parts separately, although I've no intention of selling at the moment!
  5. I'm in the process of changing the standard seats to sports heated seats. While everything is out I'd like to change the grey carpet for a black one (in good condition) Thanks

  7. Yeah, now has 12 months MOT so has been re-listed. Looks like the seller has found out that the electrical problems are not due to water getting into the boot, as he first thought, and relates to the wiring harness so should be an easy fix. Obviously will push the price up but we'll see what happens...
  8. Thanks for the replies guys, some very useful information. Actually wouldn't be too concerned with the rust, providing it's not a wreck, as can weld. It was the electrics that were concerning me more. Will see how the auction goes.
  9. Evening, I'm watching this on eBay. Water has got into the boot area and causing all sorts of issues with the electrics. Do you reckon it's an easy fix or more trouble than it's worth?? Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222505725173
  10. Hi, Looking for a black parcel shelf with electric blind for e39 saloon. If anyone has a switch panel with dsc, pdc, heated seats and electric blind that would be great too! Thanks Found what I needed, more work but nice option to have.
  11. What's your policy excess? I'd price up the parts (second hand) hopefully getting the same colour as yours and then see what the extra cost above the excess is. Wouldn't be too difficult a diy job. If there is a only a few hundred pounds difference I'd be inclined to ask for my car back and cancel the claim. If going ahead with the claim, regarding them not accepting adverts as evidence, provide them with ebay 'sold prices'. If it's sold its no longer advertised!

  14. Seen this on eBay, no connection with it. Seems a bit steep for a written off car, looks like rear arches are rusting as well. But, the fact it's only done 53k and 1 owner certainly are good selling points! Sent from my Kestrel using Tapatalk
  15. LSE range rover...nice thing! I was looking at one last week, already have a 92 classic tdi. Either love them or loathe them! Sent from my Kestrel using Tapatalk
