  1. rubbish, hyprocisy is not my style, so don't make up my response - had I heard it there would have been no comment.
  2. No, at 155k miles its still unbelievably quick, never had it flat out and it so quick through the autobox - someone will always want it - just like the 175k miles rocket ship E34 M5. the old 3.8 straight six hth and just personal view
  3. Glaring silence of condemnation from one religion re the attack - heard any of the so called Imans calling for peace and prayers for the innocents? I haven't - unless it supressed by the right wing press - even leftie BBC found no champions to present re this comment. don't throw racist at me either - just annoyed its a one way condemnation, don't care he was born here.
  4. Most of the B10 were business expresses so low mileage examples must be rare and rarer. my 2000 is sat on 155k although has a mass history of work done, so that's the realism now around 14/18 years into E39 model. still rate Alpina as the dog's danglies in terms of doing it all in style
  5. There is a real danger of some "nut of the other extreme" planning vengeance as it appears to be planned provocation each time, then followed by a silence from the related community, no press of tv statements - just ignored or claimed he had a history of mental illness. PC correctness in this country is now absolute madness.
  6. guess its selling price Carl ?
  7. looks and advertised realistically, well worth watching and what realistic bidders (not 0 idiots) value it at. mileage not huge and looks a cared for example.
  8. hope the mentally ill knifeman is no longer on this planet.
  9. no just saving energy and judge someone else's results - us o.a.p. do it all the time !!
  10. Great farewell message from Edd, did what he believed right and not a wipe over rebuild by shell polishers etc. He will do good in his own right and not in the shadow of some re-rated American rat up programme.
  11. I think Edd could hold his own in a serious resto project, on a mechanical front he seems miles in front of most noisy shell polishers who say look what I just done.................................good luck Edd, we shall watch for where you next surface on the box.
  12. Always keen on someone's else having M5 fun and games, typical rust plus probably find some more when further into the project. 3.6 engine is just a touch easier than the more stressed 3.8 please keep posting and we have quite a lot of expertise and frustrations on M5 work, money is a prime requirement plus patience as well. nice car to bring back to life.
  13. No, its just one of a theme of special versions of M5 done for more sales value re end of line re 3.6 version I think, trim levels and colour scheme, mabe a/roll bars and a few mods, joking apart I think its a refreshed 3.6 at the end of model life before the 3.8 came along. its a nice car and credit to his care and attention to getting it back to the ex factory spec.
  14. I have an old 3 no/3digit plate at present stuck on the Previa, nothing spl just a nice balanced 750 on the end. The B10 Alpina was bought with 3 digits and V8 on the end so just left there as p/owner was not willing to contribute to return costs. there are some many naff and illegal plates it shows that fines and incorrect displays are all now not actioned.
  15. I am just sick to the back teeth of Sturgeon and Salmond including the mass of tv time afforded to their crap.
