    Update Twenty 17/3/2018 When we purchased Boudica she had been liberated from her Parchment interior mats.. Luckly we sourced a used set at a very reasonable price. The keen eyed readers will have noticed in the first photo that the steering wheel has been changed. I'm unsure of the name of the steering wheel but I've found a photo of this style wheel fitted to an 850csl and some 1994 M5s. And finally meet Erika she was left by a previous owner.. All For Now.

    Thanks for the kind words mate.. We do love our cars..When you devote hours and hours of your life that you'll never get back they become so much more then cars as you understand being a car person and in our case more like a part of the family - We have had five boxy old fives and they all have had a kind of personality mostly down to the life they have had before coming into our hands - The chip seems to have made the engine less restrictive it just seems to comes on stronger

    Update Sixteen 25/1/2018 Well we picked her up Friday afternoon our first real experience with her as BMW intended and we where really supersized so we booked her in for an M.O.T. after a little mess around she passed the following day. We then set about changing the spark plugs. One Of The Old Ones. New Shiny One. Driving around the block after the spark plug change was a noticeably difference but at idle was the real change. much smoother balanced idle. Then we fitted a fancy RamAir panel filter to see if we could make that big old M60 sing a little louder. The last job for the day was the one I was looking forward to the most fitting the door coin holders that I'd had for Christmas. All For Now. Comments Welcome As Always.

    Update Fifteen 25/1/2018 Considering this is the first update of 2018 I'd like to wish you all belated Happy New Year. 27329740_151801838943762_796702520_o In The last updated I explained that the Inde ( BM Euro Service ) wanted us to pop in for a chat.. Upon arriving we where told we would need a new gearbox cooler as the cooler had corroded along with the cooler rubber pipes and plenty of automatic transmission fluid and transmission filter. Parts where ordered direct from BMW Classic Parts Shop and it was a very easy and satisfying experience all be it an expensive one. Christmas time I had these in my stocking and I'm itching to get these fitted which will set the tone for how the project is going ( Options Options ) with the interior so nice and factory I will be looking to fit as many nice easy options as I can to complement the lovely interior. The BIG Question.. Is she running well the answer is .. YES ! We have all forward and reverse gears.. A sports mode and adaptive mode.. All For Now Comments Welcome As Always

    I was told the choice of CHF11 power steering fluid was used because of the working temperature in the 540 engine bay ? The 540 Touring versions did have SLS also the American/Australian M540's ( M5's using the M60). "Pentosin is a large temperature range (Multi-viscosity like) Hydraulic system fluid. Pentosin 7 is a mineral based oil and Pentosin 11 is a full synthetic. ATF is basically a high detergent 20w oil with the lubricating property additives modified to make it Dexron or Mercon. The additives and detergent levels in ATF make it very "Poisonous" to a Pentosin based system. Seal leakage is the result of mixing them. Pentosin is a pale green out of the can but will turn a rusty red over time. It is NEVER bright red."
