  1. I had a weekend in and around the new forest and saw this e28 and 2002 in the Haynes museum.. it was immaculate
  2. Oem gear surround fitted New wiper arm fitted, the other one came damaged to isn't fitted yet and new blades to follow Cars sat on some old bottle tops while I get the steels refurbed, it will stay on steels
  3. Time has come to get the wheels sorted and new period tyres fitted. I have the original steels which are on the car but I also have a set of bottle tops... Do I make the car a bit jazzy and fit the bottle tops or just keep it on the steels???? Answers on a postcard I'm torn
  4. Any good news on this yet?
  5. How do you mean about getting rid to a dealer?? Don't sell it you mean? I don't use social media but I do have a login to the zone, if it ever gets on to Tapatalk I'll have a look at positing it on there as well As I say, it is NOT perfect but it is straight and it does present well It's imperfections are pretty minor for the age of the car and it's been a balance between having the bare minimum paint and keeping it original and I think I have found it, or at least I'm happy with that at this point once the bumpers are complete Just looking for shows to attend now
  6. New bumper rubber fitted on the rear today, along with mirrors and grilles Windscreen wiper arms to follow
  7. Well you would never believe what it actually was, once I looked at it In daylight I found the original cigarette lighter jammed in the mechanism The previous Owner told me he lost it and had recently purchased a new one, so I assume it must of called out in the closed position So that was good news
  8. It's running through my head
  9. Urgent help needed, I'm off to the Nurburgring tommorow and the car ( e39 530 auto) won't shift pass neutral so it's stuck in either d or n, I can't push it into r or p which means the keys are also locked in the ignition I assume the issue is with the mechanism that is connected to the the trigger on the shifter but I really need to get this sorted to catch my ferry tommor Any advice greatly received and appreciated
  10. Hmm it's tempting to get my e30 325 out... but o haven't driven it for about 6 months so it's a bit of a gamble I'll check prices on that ferry now
  11. Iv not driven it for 18 months untill MOT day yesterday, which it got a clean sheet ... I got chance to look Underneath properly and it's solid as a rock Bumper clips arrive in the morning so they will be fitted and the new mirrors come next week from BMW Then just need to the chrome sorted on the bumpers If a BMW dealer wanted it there more than welcome to have it as I struggle for storage
  12. Which crossing are you getting? I'll be in a silver e39 530, I'm now going on Saturday as well I am not driving in anger, just a been there done that kind of thing Are you going alone?
  13. Managed to pick up a set locally over the weekend but thanks for keeping an eye out chaps That defiantly looks like a craxk
  14. So as the title suggests I'm off to the Nurburgring , im taking an extended weekend next week and driving down from Cheshire. I plan on taking the Hull to roterdam ferry and sleeping over night. I'm taking my 530 auto for a comfy cruise down rather than my e30 as I want some comfort along the way. So if anyone has any tips for the trip or best days to drive the track I'm all ears. I'm going more for the experience than to nail the car around the track. Also, any good stop offs would be appreciated Im going alone so looking forward to it
  15. Mot day for her tomorrow, fingers crossed
