  1. I can't see the pictures for some reason. I will see you tomorrow though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hi Mick, It's off the trailer and tucked up in the barn now. Once we've cleared out our current restorations, an M535i and an E23 we will be getting started on yours. I will run a blog at www.classicbahnstormers.com where one on an ex members m535i can already be found and I will reproduce the same thing here in the project section. Here's a few pics from the collection Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Smug!!! Had to replace crank sensors yesterday and put it off all day. Got all the tools out, drill, drifts, Torch etc and settled down for a long afternoon. Much to my amazement I undid them and they both came straight out. It literally took longer to jack the car up lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. If you mean the number actually stamped into the inner wing, bit the wing bolts to, it's one of the identification numbers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Err where is everyone? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Absolutely not, the more the merrier. Just make sure your at Fort Nelson before 10am as they are quite strict on letting people in and out because of the various gun firings. Looking forward to meeting you tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Unlikely my car has no alarm fitted. I have seen them before in exactly the same place. I think it's automatic specific. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I'm sure is been asked a million times and I think I've even read up on it before but what is this? A screwed to the bulk head above the engine on a late 87 m535i? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think those estimates are high against the current reality. I have a very original, very clean M535i in diamond Schwartz with pearl beige leather which is also an automatic which has covered 98k. It is rust free and never been welded but unfortunately it is covered in scratches where it has been in storage. Once it's up together and painted and looking lovely I think a realistic obtainable value for the car is 10k. Despite all the postulating around the M535i lately the market place shows that £10-12 is roughly where it's at for low millage original examples. Personally millage doesn't bother me a great deal but the investment/appreciating classic set will be bothered. Conversely I have a lachs silver M535i auto that has covered 226k. It's been stripped back to a shell had new sills, floor, inner wings, rear panel etc. It's had quite a lot of paint and has a crack free dash and very clean black leather interior. It's high millage but there is inches and inches of history showing it's been well looked after. I have sold this one at £4500 which in hind sight and with all the work that's gone into it feels painfully cheap. I believe I could probably achieve £5500 or at a push £6k on this if offering it for sale now. To my mind that makes yours worth £7500ish plus or minus £500. It's all opinion of course and most importantly who is looking at the time. The impetuous nature of buyers can be startling. Finally, around January time there was a lovely royal blue m535i manual for sale with cloth on eBay at a very nice looking address locally to me. It had been owned for quite some time and lots of money spent. It was on a buy it now for £6995 I think. It had about 168k on the clock and was a nice looking car. I think it got reduced to £5995 and somebody had messed the seller around in the process before it disappeared from ebay. Although I except January is a crap time to sell, this sounds comparable to yours. Unfortunately the links to your pictures don't work. Can you repost them. This is my penny's worth so to speak.

  11. Oh, the G30's a new 5 series's I wondered why snows where providing us with a 4x4 Mercedes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I don't know it but it's not that far away on the days I work in Bristol if you wanted someone to go and have a look? Although did you notice the offers on the advert are dated 2015. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. In terms of weather you should or shouldn't it all depends why your doing it. A modified car will never be worth as much as a restored original but it will go up in value and I suppose if you keep it long big enough and it brings you joy in the mean time it's not so bad. I would say it's a shame to brake any M535i now unless it's truly wrecked. I bought a white rolling shell last year which had been virtually stripped bare although it still had an engine and gearbox in it. Rather than cut it up for repair panels as I'd planned to I am going to weld it up and hang onto it as at some point a good m535i shell will attain a value. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I've done this conversion into a 525e. I can give you a pretty detailed how to. Actually I converted it to servo assisted brakes using the original 525e vacuum servo and the brakes where great. Only thing I would say is it requires a bit of welding and if the 520 is an auto a little bit more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
