  1. Have a word with Tims, he is on the forum as s registered breaker, I have used him many times for odd bits similar to vour lists, particularly the back end wiring, sometimes an unplug squirt with electrocleaner clears out the rubbish and conversely sorts out both functionality and non funuctionality. You may need bit of help re carpet stopping smooth clutch take up, E34 section has many keen members wno will hopefull wad it. hth
  2. perhaps should have have taken more care when parking the car? anyway I am not joining in, several have tried to be very helpful. you elected not to attend court as it a hot day ?
  3. absolutely agree, how nice for the senior officer of the mosque to take control of idiots actions and potentential problems. So good to see balanced point of view to basically a terrorist attack. Please do not let this officer of the mosque get swept aside by revenge calls again, we all want to live in peace, that community is there is already picky up responsibilities that other more radical seem to wish to exploit. Well done to a very difficult incident - Finsbury, you are taking a very responsible point of view, in my lowly opinion.
  4. I think Mr B has an affliction called BiTurbo/6speed/3.8/Touring - and one has surfaced for sale.
  5. GLWS of a very good car, sorted out by S, whatever the problem.
  6. Pretty p/poor if Davis conceding on day 1. needs a common sense advisor to examine the effect of change before we start conceding. no idea, like this Government what the UK bottom line is.
  7. you maybe confusing with me, just sold on here a 2002 silver VR6 fsh, nice car with a few marks re knock around driving.
  8. Don't know who is silliest on this Juncker re USA stupidity, or Spain being accommodated re Veto by EU crass move and Michael Howard getting the context and comments all wrong. However, the die is cast for Spanish veto, ably supported by our EU no longer colleagues, so change that if UK can. ! I am giving up on Brexit postings now, I can see no commonsense from either UK or EU parties, just slinging as many complications, added trash and punishments that UK may or may not deserve. No idea where this democratic decision by UK will lead us to very soon - doubt and agreement is possible now re above additional complications that arise each and every day. 19 June 2017. well it happening now, kick of started - embraces, gifts exchanged etc. what happens to GB, we shafted now as punishment for daring to want our destiny back ? difficult times over next month - did our politicians/civil servants actually produce a plan or do we go in with blank sheet A4 and take notes as we go.....................
  9. Amongst my now reduced pile of cars is a 1982 V12xjs with few engine and ecu improvements and getrag five speed box properly converted, I spun it once at around 120 whilst giving it a foot full, got away with it and since then imposed a speed limit of less than 95mph so keep clear of losing licence. Real scary and it just keep rotating but missing road furniture, ditch etc - thank you man upstairs. My Yoshi Suzi endurance bike would be clear of 100 by time got to next neighbour house just 300m or so down the road, it now locked in a private collection It deserves better.
  10. Being the old father, I was totally spoiled with cards, presents of wine, dvd,plus phone calls and emails from them both. Also local one called in this pm so had eight of us sat in shade on side lawn. very nice and welcome efforts, I know what S/F means, my dad is still in my thoughts after 40 years.
  11. LHD 3.8 touring, five speed ? importing from Europe to be an Bi Turbo based 3.8 Alpina Touring clone, a quite unique car if my guess correct and Simon has already secured the car and done the deal. k
  12. You are much more forgiving than me - I am a bitter old git re the falsifications and wish to cause him grief via a proper complaints process.
  13. Two of us rescued and shared an early Interceptor a few years ago, I absolutely hated it, huge lumbering vehicle and not that rapid when up against good 3.8 Mk2, glad to sell it on, it would have made a lovely vehicle with a shed load of time and money spent on it, just like my E34 M5
  14. Alternator very suspect. !
  15. 1998 540 six speed touring has passed MoT today, small plate needed re floor/cill area, now ok - absolutely full service, new rocker box gaskets, rebuild rusty and u.s. E39 hand brake, passed ok after new discs, etc. new plugs, expansion tank etc gearbox and transmission oils drained and changed, runs lovely again after 8 months laid up. So it ready to go to Australia if he wants to take it or if not the B10.
  16. Cant be there re illness but watching it all on satellite so sure of some very long and late viewings, Toyota quick but not convinced Porsche holding back, LM2 etc looks ultra competitive. Hope you have fantastic time, full of envy D. !!
  17. so do I, good luck.
  18. Nightmare scenario and feel so sorry for those trapped above the seat of the fire, floor 4? no wonder the higher levels have such an unknown injury and fatality count yet to be determined.
  19. What a superb opportunity. glws
  20. What a fine design and shape these cars are, truly majestic and timeless.
  21. What a car engineer, every Lola a work of art and focus. RIP
  22. Many congratulations Simon for seeing that through to a satisfactory conclusion, tool kit came in dead useful for the amount you renewed. Good luck with next E34, you should have had the 3.8 estate from me, it was sound, all worked, MoT etc and capable of being an excellent rarity for just over £12k, I had to slim down the collection re urgent health issues so it went + 2 more M5.
  23. He wrote a good feature on the E34 M5 pile I had, in the June 2016 issue if I remember correctly, he went to David at CMD and spent lot of time re cars, condition and work done plus a photo shoot. very pleased with what he compiled - hope they both do well.
  24. Really think there are some committed labour mps who will commit and be positive in their contributions, a bit of distance from socialist rhetoric but may have UK best interests in mind. hth k
  25. I now think Tories are finished following their disasterious closet of 3 senior individuals, TM and two self centred prats. DUP will be very demanding, Ruth Davidson is running her own plans and policy (longer or short term) and TM and historic supporters/coterie have failed to run the country over past few years. Coupled this arrogance and crap attempt at a manifesto that none of us understood, the perfect storm was created and here. Where we go from here I don't know, Corbyn is a unknown and is there any moderacy left re a coalition from above. Dianne Abbott needs ditching now but maybe a loyalty too far. Brexit as such is dead - it will be a Cameron two version of ass kicking back across the channel. See from dob I am old but fear for my beloved country and its younger generation, we here shall just get caned by IHT for the product of fifty eigth years of continuous/solid hard, tax paying work - that why I was able to indulge in M25 resto follies. prob this mostly rubbish to some. k
