  1. E38 750i

    The Ronald Mcdonald colour scheme underneath bothers me more than the interior,as Paddy says,a black dash and door caps would lift the interior.
  2. Talk about bad luck

    Hope she plods along for a while yet Kevin,probably just feeling her age a bit.
  3. Talk about bad luck

    Back in October we lost out precious Bullmastiff Hartley after a 6mth battle with cancer,anyway picked ourselves up and got ourselves a 3yr old rescue Bullmastiff girl on Boxing Day forgoing our Scottish Christmas cottage getaway,train of thought being,we can go away anytime and this little girl needed a home, Anyways everything going fine with her,then end of January my wifes mum passed away unexpectedly one Sunday afternoon,so we get everything sorted and she,s laid to rest couple of weeks ago, We then notice Bonnie our Bullmastiff is very quiet and picky with her food all of a sudden,so off to the vets to the news she has got lung cancer and after only 10 weeks with us she passed away last night, 10 weeks or 10yrs doesn,t really alter the fact again we are both heartbroken. Heres hoping for a change of fortune.

  8. Loaded last night with drilling rig parts for a job in Glasgow today, after sitting on M6 this morning just past Burton in Kendal for the guts of 2hrs crawled onto Carlisle,only to get the phone call saying job was cancelled, Site in Glasgow shut down and low loader carrying the 80tonne rig stuck at Abington,so off at Jct 43 and head south for home,total waste of a day and about 200lts of fuel.
  9. 05 reg BMW E61 525ise

    Only bought this at Christmas for the wife to use mainly as the e39 we had was getting a bit long in the tooth, Anyway she doesn,t like it and has taken my 325Ci as her daily now, MOT until Dec 18 Stamped service book upto 106,000mls,most recent service was done before my purchasing it but book not stamped, New Battery and Cam Cover gasket done 3 weeks ago, Two new rear tyres last week,Fronts still have around 4mm, Headlights polished,results are better but not perfect, Alloys could do with a refurb on close up inspection, Rear Wiper sticking,checked wiring through tailgate hinges and all is ok,gave wiper arm a little assistance and it moves so guessing it could do with a new wiper motor, Disconnected auto tailgate as the water ingress in wheel well fried the control box,cleaned and dried everything and had no water ingress since,fitted standard struts but the O/S needs replacing. Top Tailgate glass opens and closes as it should. The car is clean and damage free inside. This car is no show pony but is straight and clean. I,ve not advertised it anywhere else,i,ve seen an X5 i may take a punt on but if it doesn,t sell i,ll maybe just keep it as it is only used to get me to and from work which is a commute of 30miles twice a week, The car is in Trentham,Stoke on Trent at weekends which is the best time to have a look as it sits in the works car park all week in Burton while i,m away. Price is £2200 ovno. Pics to follow.

  22. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Took mine to our works yard so i could get in the garage,cam cover gasket done,headlights polished and non-working rear wiper investigated,wiring all ok through hinges,i think the motor is seized as it moves when given light assistance with my finger.
