  3. BROCADE RED E34 540I / 124k MILES / BARN FIND

    Isn’t CHF used because of the shared use with the brake system / booster or am I thinking of the 540 touring?
  4. Programming new key fob

    For my new remote key that I bought from BMW a few years back, I just followed the instructions in the original handbook that came with the car! I have a feeling the ignition had to be in and the button on the key held in
  5. Would a 518i touring in alpine Weiss III with blue interior interest you? Very tidy body but one front door brake is broken, one wing is the wrong alpine Weiss and there’s a dent in one of the rear doors . Tailgate and glass opens on the button. front jacking points needed small infill sections only - no sunroof or sill covers located in Ipswich
  6. What transmissions fit

    Shift points:
  7. Wheeler Dealers Series 14

    Edd has his own YouTube channel and has done some infotainment videos for Textar brakes
  8. MOT.gov website

    Thanks for posting this up
  9. E34 slam panel replacement

    Its a bolt in part and the old one will come out after breaking the mastic / sealant on the upper corners where it connects to the wings. Got one in red and silver btw are you after the gold 525 with lsd on gumtree / eBay?
  10. Fuel injector tds

    Have you checked the fuel section of https://www.bmwtis.com/repair/main/741en ?
  11. E34 rear charger/lighter port

    Will check over the weekend for you....
  12. Wipers

    Genuine BMW ones for an e34 are the best fit I've had, the Bosch ones i tried didn't follow the windscreen as well
  13. Roof rack and a silly question (or two).

    Could a office filing cabinet lock be used on the roof bars? I think I read that cabinet locks have been used to hold Alpina wheel centres in the alloys in the past
  14. Replacement Sill Panels

    Not sure if the Euro car part or Car parts for less part numbers have been recorded Their catalogue states full sill 1.0mm thick 88-96 and part numbers 884110091 / 884110101 They are currently £71.99 with a 7% saving on ECP or £48.48 saving 38% on CP4L They don't come up in the usual way, you have to do a search by part number then confirm car details
  15. E34 touring boot spoiler replacment

    Most windscreen fitting companies should be able to fit a new one
