    Anyone bought a car abroad and driven home?

    I was looking into this a few years ago. Bringing a car back from Germany was easy enough then as you could purchase plates / insurance but I ended up getting an Austrian car so road tripped a car transporter from c & s recovery in north London. Back in blighty, Sky Insurance in Enfield insured it based on the vin number so I could get it mot’ed
  2. Found Tesco was cheapest for Castrol fully synthetic after buying in bulk on eBay thinking that was the best deal!

    518 to 525

    Yes! Had the same issue, there are a pair of mounting points different / missing on the block. Later / facelift e30 m20 might have them incorporated ?

    Insurance approved alarms...

    From https://www.thatcham.org/security “Thatcham Research has been at the forefront of vehicle security since the 1990s when it introduced the New Vehicle Security Assessment (NVSA) to address levels of vehicle crime and launched the Thatcham Categories for Alarm and Immobiliser systems that is now established as an industry benchmark...”
