  1. Aah, but you have the cherished blue cloth - the never used bmw wiper of dreams - sure a towing eye will be available from Tim or others on forum - if not Ebay search as well.
  2. don't understand your comment - you mean just let them carry on members of the public ?
  3. Terrible, cowardly attack on young innocents, I sincerely hope there is no backlash in Manchester where extremists of other conviction delight in an opportunity like this act. Manchester Imans, come out and deliver condolences and contain the idiotic rhetoric that encourages this treasonable act - capital punishment should be restored for these hideous act and all those involved. a few years in jail with mobile phones to use plus access to wifi gives them even more opportunities to plan such acts and the hideous message they preach.
  4. I had a C43 amg a few years ago and never got attached to it, despite the effortless performance, never had a RRover but understand the luxury drive element. Still very content with the B10 V8, it is everything I ever needed, no four wheel drive but that need is not in my library re off road etc. (have the audi V6 Quattro sport with awd if it needed) Good luck with the car and sure you will cossetted and probably pass me in the fast lane at some time - most RR do !!
  5. sebring grey followed by family favourite avus blue in M5 format with granit silver trim pieces.
  6. Truthfully this is a fine little car, honest condition report, mechanics 95% at least, 11 months MoT, full leather interior at 95%, no rips/tears, cd, climate, tape all work, tyres 90% as were renewed, paintwork 80% re 16 years old, minor repaired damage/dint on o/side front wing, few other marks and tailgate paint not so good, nothing hanging off and rest of panels incl doors etc very good. Original handbooks incl service book, old mot, invoices etc available for inspection as well. Central locking, remote and factory imobiliser is 100% on 2 key fobs - this is ready for immediate use. so thruthful description for anyone needing cheap and reliable comfortable 6 six speed daily that is not a potential pile of expenditure, as its the five door version it a bit more family friendly. I cannot advertise it as 100% or concours for £1350 so above should clarify it condition accurately, for a serious buyer/user its a good sound car. k
  7. Should anyone be interested Mrs 540 VR6 is for sale. 2001 silver, 6 speed, 5 door, top spec black heated leather seats etc, climate control, radio, cd x 6, tape player all part of top spec car and bonus of no sun roof to leak. history, invoices and handbooks all here. 2 owners before us, we have owned for 4+ years. 11 months MoT to May 2018, we have renewed alternator, starter, battery, brakes rebuild and tyres as needed plus haldex service/filter. 154k miles, full VAG service history till we bought it at 150k or so, then looked after by my local specialists. Excellent condition, few blemishes but is very clean inside/out for 16 year old car, alarmed and central locking plus 2 fobs. Returns well over 32mpg on motorway runs and around 23/25mpg on mixed local. very quick and comfy little car but it not being used and it deserves release from prison/carport as always parked out of weather. £1350 ovno - please email if interested.
  8. this has been around for a while and been on ebay before as well I think for £4k.
  9. PM sent re reg'n number and picture set now ready.
  10. not advertised elsewhere - so let me know. k
  11. If local then go and have a look, at below £1k, that mileage and history etc it could be a good save, tailgates are available and good auto ellecy will remove the tailgate wiring problems. so what it got a bit of rust, have a look at how serious plus mot advisories as a first check. nice old tool and good spec - someone will be brave and have a go I think.
  12. top price, nice spec car and mileage at 71k modest they were exec cars, prob. £2k over realistic but many people like the straight six. may go at a negotiated price, I remain loyal to the B10 V8 but it enjoy the different characteristics etc.
  13. Re domestic stuff. Lounge here has 2 x 15" gold in Lancaster box at one end and 2 x 12" red in corner enclosure at other end both driven by AAA technics amps, big graphic equaliser using h.d. pioneer front/rear mixer. No mice live in this house, sound from them is spectacular no matter what music source - makes the Alpina system although expensive a bet weedy. When wife out the cd collection has a few specials that let the performance flow. The two sets of Tannoys worth more than the Alpina, ha ha
  14. suspect jammed slider(s) - try the copious spray of wd 40 or similar release oil once it open for access. Try slowly and see if it creep slowly towards closing, maybe lack of use but strange the switch had already been disconnected. Can always try the breaker lads on here for a replacement switch as a first hopeful try or may be a replacement set of the cables etc etc as a real solution, hth
  15. Hi Tris, hope you enjoy it - very busy now so expected sell out density. Car park full of good stuff as well. Paddock open to all and very popular and raises the jealousy factor, there is a further paddock in stable area plus maybe serious stuff in elegance display, especially fantastic Italian coachwork - 1 guy owned about six of them. Not sure of host theme this year, for few quid the Bonhams catalogue provides entrance on one day plus a good luck at the next overpriced batch of exotica, I bought the E Type there in 2000 and my then business partner bought RUF 1, the first RUF converted 911 turbo mad machine - he still has it as well, both for less than £30k !! !! I am not fit for the day dragging around so family will be there as usual re GRRC membership etc. Some sharp rally cars up the hill on that stage. Make most of it and try to get to Revival in September, that very exiting stuff and cars to make you stop and think. Friend may get his Mk 1 race car accepted if all goes his way but entrant achievement is slim pickings
  16. As I am unable to drive charming B.10 has sat under its car port since January, not ignored but dusty etc !! The Audi returned from some work as its the daily tredder re hospital runs etc for the future. So when the mechanics delivered the Audi I asked for the Alpina to be run around the block. Careful ignition key activity enabled rotation before firing up on four occasions re oil circulation to valve gear etc. So gentle start and it ran fine, 10 minute warm up and then out of its prison, screens washed off, lights, indicators tested ok, gearbox warmed up and tested re drive, reverse etc. So off she goes, purring away like the fine car it is - chuffed that careful storage and use just needed good brake discs clean off. Lovely car now happy as it had a run, promise it a good clean once feeling bit better - still say its best car I have every owned. k
  17. Trump towers ?
  18. That's a dangerously high temperature, suggest a phone call to GP surgery to check that temperature is not beyond beyond a safe extreme. Cold sweats as well ? would make the phone call just to be careful.
  19. Really good and honest response, hope the expansion plans work and the car is question finds new home. Just what this forum needs is an honest and open dialogue on cars and bits,
  20. Richard at Brystone in Southampton set up E34 M5 motor for me, well worth a call and chat.
  21. I used Mike on 077216316654, trailered the vw campervan fine. he expects a call re job and agree price etc hth k
  22. I used an E bay search to shift one of mine, worked fine and reasonable costs. pick 2 or 3 close to home and drop a note - guess £45 based on what it cost me re E34 k
  23. Surely the latest tome from Tusk re emotional outbursts can not be accurate and just media hype? surely this type of outburst plus Juncker's statements and the ever increasing bill to leave are either b/shite or the most juvenile attempts at GB bashing it possible to engage in at this time. Am I getting it 100% wrong or is the EU management that far removed from reality now re cash desperation etc. welcome someone correcting me if I am wrong etc etc
  24. I despair of the futility of it all now, EU thinks of any number then adds to it for fun/mischief/cash needs for non contributors etc. We lob insults and meaningless crap via media to make it worse than Juncker and co can hope for. why not demand a detailed annual analysis of what included and at what item cost ? surely that a fair economic question and then shut up the yap for a week or two and get into each item. still don't understand why assets funded by UK, bank loans etc by UK not on the table, loans to come back fro Southern Ireland when their banks were bust and UK provided emergency funding etc. Is there are common sense on the table or just posturing by all and UK just leaves amid turmoil, unresolved items and chaos with Spain Veto over Gibraltar and Southern Ireland solution now also being imposed as a Brexit issue. Old enough to be logical but remain totally bemused now and all politicians now appear to make it worse re Lib Dem/Labour/Gina whatever plus Blair and his cahoots adding to the crap pile most days.
  25. Chufffed to see another one saved and it looks great - these M5 are a mammoth restoration tasks but such fine hand build cars and worth all the grief and tribulations. great car and work from me for what its worth. !
