    Anyone used AUTODOC parts website before?

    Not used autodoc yey but will in a few weeks for some brake discs. Take a look at mister auto too. I have used them a few times and not had any issues.

    Hi! New 2003 BMW 530i SE Auto owner

    That'a a tidy 530, love the contour seats. I bet that was an expensive option when new. It's gettng the attention it deserves. Funnily enough I picked up a Subaru Legacy 3.0 r spec b today. There seem to be a lot of people that straddle between legacys and 5 series.

    HiFi speakers and set up advice

    Have a look at Van Damme speaker cables. They'e very good vfm and you can pick them up on ebay. I have the blue series for my TV set up.

    HiFi speakers and set up advice

    Can't beat a proper set up. I've just had my 20 year old Audiolab separates serviced and been surprised how well they sound once again. Wouldn't change it for the world, still looks elegant today. And purely by chance the gentleman who serviced it, a Kevin Green in Bicester, is an E34 nut. Has 3 M5's (Rosso Red, Orinoho Green and a track Azure Blue) and a Sultan of Brunei 540i tourning he's converted to 6 speed manual.

    Opinions please....

    S4 is "only" a 3.0 Supercharged 300+bhp so no big bills to worry about like the RS models. I think Audi interiors are one of the best designed interiors out there. Yes I admitted to that on a BMW forum. Worth a butchers.

    New M5

    Congratulations Brian. Mot many people get to purchase their dream car. Don't let the dealership taint your experience, once it's in your possession take it elsewhere for the the servicing. What's the spec of it? We need pics.

    Bargain estate cars. Talk to me

    I was in a similar position to you but needed a 4wd. I bought a 2005 Subaru Legacy tourer (estate) 2.5SE auto for £1750. It has 110k miles, full leather climate, heated seats, cruise and it all works. The boot is huge. I've only ever had German cars but I've converted, they'e absolutely brilliant cars and can't recommend them enough. Very capable cars and I feel they have some kudos about them. My regret is not going for the 3.0 H6 (horizontal 6 cylinder) 246bhp model against my 164bhp. As I'll only do 5k miles in it I could have taken the hit in extra fuel costs. The 2.5 is returning me 28mpg combined. Don't bother with the diesels as they have a high tendency to fail. There's also the Subaru Forester which is an Imprezza under the skin. Turbo models can be had for your budget.

    Insurance Advise Needed

    And us, the innocent punters end up paying more each year through increased premiums. The insurance industry is nothing short of being a cartel.
