  1. E30 V8 with a 5.6 twist

    Seems a shame to undo all the hard work
  2. New Wheeler Dealers

    I was a little disappointed to be honest. Ant seems to know his stuff which is good but I also think the wing addition was a bit naff tbh. Never really been a fan of Mike and I watched it for Edd's fixes but as the show has progressively dumbed down the tech bit it has become less and less appealing and seems to still be heading in that direction. @duncan-uk I kind of agree. The first thing that annoyed me was when he couldn't work out if it was gearbox or engine oil. We all know if you smell and it smells like bigfoot's d1ck it's gearbox oil I sort of saw his point as he thought it would be rear main which would have been easier out of the car but he should have pulled the pan and checked that first.

  6. Which 3 cars - lottery win

    Too many nice cars...................... I want them all
  7. So I started to repair some of the rust on the 5 today. As suspected the rear lower quarters are well past there best so I've ordered 2 repair panels. I also sorted the o/s rear sill and have now got that in primer so some progress today. There was a lot of filler on that rear quarter. Will post more pics as we go. Starting low as I have the rear scuttle to attack as well and want to be fully up to scratch.
  8. Starting to repair the rust

    haha I think not mate. Far too much to do and not enough cash atm
  9. Starting to repair the rust

    Finally picking up the 5 tonight. Very excited to have it home although I've got a long road ahead to get it back on the road. Battery MOT New Boot lid Bumper Rear lights Exhaust
  10. I'm in the middle of trying to cobble together the rear lights on the E12 but I can only get 3 of the 4 seals required. 63211363934 is ok (1 per side) 63211361522 RH main gasket is ok . 63211361521 LH NLA. Does anyone know of one in good condition or old stock somewhere? I'm gonna try Tim later but obviously he only has used parts. cheers
  11. Rear light sealing gaskets LH NLA

    Nope. No good. Broken as well. The search continues

    So talking to a chap from Greece no less about a good condition set of lights. He's sending me some pictures of the rears to see if I'm happy with the mounts. Fingers crossed they are all good
  13. Will 15s fit on a 530d sport

    Could a set of steels be cheaper? You could keep them with winter tyres on too
  14. New bloke with E12 M535i

    Yeah they were the original damper although I don't remember if they had a second perch setting. I've still got them in the garage somewhere so I could have a look.
  15. New bloke with E12 M535i

    I notice you've fitted H&R springs to your new dampers. I bought some of these and they made the car sit too high and it looks like you might have the same problem. I'll try and find the thread with the pictures Found it. Shows pictures after fitment.
  16. Rear light sealing gaskets LH NLA

    hmm. ok mate. cheers
  17. Rear light sealing gaskets LH NLA

    So what did you do in the end?
  18. Love the ring. Have fun mate
  19. New bloke with E12 M535i

    Just called him and asked. He can't remember but he said they were definitely sealed like yours are.
  20. New bloke with E12 M535i

    I don't know mate. I couldn't crack the nut so ended up dropping it at the friends garage. I was actually changing the backing plates as the time. When they stripped it we found it need bearings which I then tried to order from BMW. We sourced them from Europe in the end as said but I never got to see them and he just fitted it when they came in. Sorry I'm not much use here. I'll ask if he rememebers
  21. New bloke with E12 M535i

    Dunno mate. I can see the lock nut in that bag too. Could only get one from BMW. Maybe they have started making them again.
  22. New bloke with E12 M535i

    wtf. I recently went to the dealer for rear wheel bearings for mine and was told NLA. Ended up sourcing some genuine bearings from Europe. Gonna ask you to get my bits from now on!

    Crap news mate. I hope the little c###s are caught soon.
  24. Parking ticket advice please.

    Of course we could all just park where we are supposed to and then none of this would ever happen.......

    You're listing a totally different Genre. Modern Dance music does produce some legendary tunes be it in D&B, Progressive Psy etc . The Artists you list here are modern pop and that has always been shit.
