    In my experience the E61 would be away at the dealers getting something else fixed that had decided not to work, 3 lovely examples there Dan.

    Was that you today Kenny on the A38 around Markeaton Island about 3pm? You passed me coming down the hill before you turned left at the island to head into town, I was in the truck heading back to Burton.

    05 reg BMW E61 525ise

    Just to add,new rear wiper motor fitted but i think the wiper arm needs freeing up as the motor works but no movement in wiper, New discs and pads fitted on rear I,ve been offered £1400 on a px so if anyone wants it for that amount it will be here until next Saturday.

    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. 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 £1400 no offers
  16. I was always firmly based in the Ford camp,had a string of Cortinas and Mk1 & 2 Granadas in almost every engine size,but then bought a C reg Mk1 Vauxhall Senator and could not believe how much more comfortable and refined it was against past Fords, Eventually moved on to an E reg Mk2 Senator in white,which then gave way to a last of line L reg 3.0 24v,Happy Days indeed.
