  1. Looks great on those wheels, are they refurbed ?
  2. I think it was £1450 actually Piper! I ran N43 BRX for 9 months and 9,000 miles and it was a good car. I had the wheels refurbished - twice, had some tyres put on, a service an MOT and some replacement of some suspension bushes. Think I spent about £1000 in the time I had it. I sold it for £1850 and the next chap sold it for £2850! Prices have certainly firmed up since then. I am in a E65 750i Sport now.
  3. Consequence of a much more stringent MOT (TUV test?) meaning cars cost a lot more to keep on the road and those with current TUV commanding a higher price Plus second hand cars are cheap here, due in part to the deals on new ones I guess. And people perceive e39s and e38s as big and expensive to run. Having had 3 e39s I can remember and 3 x e38s I would also agree the e38 is a far better quality item than the e39 - e38 is one of the best BMWs ever in my opinion.
  4. Great photo. I see these are now on C&C @ £45k. Good luck with the sale.
  5. Thank you, looks good. Just needs amber indicator lenses at the front to be like my old '93 car. What are the miles, known issues with the car Is it black leather. Would be interested to know what you are looking for for the car. I am in Bournemouth so not too far from you.
  6. Yep that's the way it goes sometimes! Oh well!
  7. Hi Piper Nick here, old owner of your green 750 - I still miss it and yearn for another e38 - i've had 3 and they are great cars. Will follow your progress on this one. Nick
  8. I'd be interested in the "3.8 five speed saloon, avus, no edc and on bilsteins etc" - same as the old one I used to have - see profile pic! Look forward to more details / prices in due course.
  9. Very smart
  10. I think I saw a post on the ML FB page about this.... Nice project, good luck with it.
  11. Lovely motor
  12. Nice, is the old engine broken or are you selling it?
  13. What an interesting find! Brilliant another has been saved. Agree completely with what you say re: the cill covers. I love it with the silver contrast against the blue, as my old one was;
  14. Looks like it could be a nice motor Chris, hope the current problems aren't anything too serious
  15. Did it pass?
