  1. Lovely car in the best colour! It's not often I see another in Bluewater Metallic so this is awesome. You will really struggle to find used parts in the right colour...I've always had an eye out and nothing ever comes up!
  2. Thanks for the kind words! My car already had tints but the back 2 doors had been scratched by my kids so I had those redone. It was £80 for the back doors, if you need the main back window done also I think it was about £150 but the quality of the workmanship and materials is well worth it.
  3. BMW radio will still be connected to allow Control of certain OBC functions.
  4. What colour is 6k? Any idea on OEM?
  5. Oh and the wheels need a refurb..! Them I'm actually done
  6. Have still got the pesky rust to sort out on the sills. Will also get the jacking points checked for peace of mind. A few other items like engine mounts and tie rods and gearbox service then the body and mechanics are done. Need to find someone who will fit an e38 armrest for me and then I am DONE!
  7. Not at all. Honestly I struggle to tell the difference from when they were changed and if anything they were significantly more comfortable with improved handling. I guess changing shocks/springs that had done 130k was always going to be a good thing though!
  8. I changed shocks and springs about a year ago on my SE and went for Monroe standard shocks and eibach springs and got it a little lower and must say the comfort is the same.
  9. Shame...back to SE suspension then?
  10. @Too late how was the pricing?
  11. What did you not like about it just out of interest? The car looks just right with them on!
  12. Some more pics from the big clean!
  13. After much pondering I finally decided to hire a detailer to one and wash and decontaminate the car and sort the interior and under the bonnet. Limited pics for now but the car looks fantastic and I'm really happy with the results. Will probably put it on a maintenance plan once a fortnight as I just don't get the time anymore. I realised I also used to enjoy nothing more than spending all day on the car but with 3 young kids time is better spent with them.
  14. My wife wants a smaller car and quite frankly I'm all for it as it will mean when I come to drive the 5 it won't be dirty, have make up all over the controls and he rear seats won't look like she has been transporting live animals around (kids eh)! Im pretty sold on an e87 1 series and she likes them also. Not a tiny city car but perfect for local duties and school run and can go further if needs be. I don't think she needs a diesel so which is the best petrol engine? Also any options that are an absolute must?
