    Imola e39 535i sport

    Looks like both rear quarters and sills have been painted or the doors have,as for the boot badge its too high and is missing its i, Gotta love an imola e39 though,bloody lovely colour even if it is in many shades,looking at some of the ridiculous prices for so called top spec low mileage e39s in se form this car may be worth a look as a starter project.

    Animal lovers, what would you do?

    I really don,t want to comment on an open forum the utter contempt i feel for people like this,they disgust me, Its making my blood boil just reading the opening post, Southport holds happy memories for me as its where we took our Harty for his last walk on the beach before we lost him to cancer.

    Two Spots

    Slate Green e39 sport tourer northbound M74 at Beattock around 1800hrs, E34 520i tourer in what looked like Boston Green at M8/M9 split just before Newbridge around 1900hrs. Both very tidy clean looking cars.

    52 reg silver e39 se tourer

    M40 southbound this morning around Jct 12 about 7am. WAKE UP you muppet,its pissing with rain,so concentrate,don,t know what you were doing but coming by my fully laden truck almost sideways in the 3rd lane normally ends in tears,also rear fogs are not needed in the dark when its raining, Saw you again in the Q for the A34 and gave you a toot on the horn.

    Motormania 2019, Grantown on Spey

    Fine array of machinery on show there Mark, I really like the look of the two Granada Ghias and the green Opel, Thanks for sharing the pics once again.

    A brace of V8 Goodness!

    Lovely looking pair of 5,s James.
  17. I bought an e38 740i which was a turning point for me,after several Vauxhall Senators and Ford Granadas of varying engine sizes the quality of the e38 really impressed, Since then one of the two cars we run has been a BMW.
  18. 740mick

    HI ALL!

    Welcome Laurence,pics of both BMWs will be good when you get the chance.

    I can’t wait for it to rain....

    Been raining here in Trentham since early morning,temp down to around 14 degrees,going work this afternoon and heading down to Portsmouth,hopefully get a good nights sleep tonight in the cab unlike the last few weeks which has been quite unbearable once the aircon has been off 10 minutes.

    Spaced out

    Give me a nod if you decide to sell the old wheels, Do you know if they will fit my e46 325Ci Sport? My MV2,s are badly in need of a refurb,especially since Donna drove the car for a while and tried to square off the front and back n/s wheels.

    I can’t wait for it to rain....

    The sky is very black here and the wind is picking up but still no rain.

    I think it looks well that Simon,are the new wheels Shadow Chrome? I would be tempted to leave the surrounds as they are,if the bonnet grilles are chrome and the exhaust tips are shiny it gives a nice contrast to the dark blue paintwork. Have you sold your other wheels?

    Been a while.......

    Its a world away from general haulage thats for sure Paddy,no one bothers you on the phone,virtually run the job to suit yourself,no RDC work,its all independant caterers and wholesalers that actually want the stuff they,ve ordered which makes for a lot easier life.

    Been a while.......

    Struggling to upload pics Paddy, I,ve had a job change and gone back on the fridges,gone for quality of life as i,ve gone to work for a cheese making company that just delivers its own product,getting home a bit in the week now, Piloting a 3mth old V4 Volvo XL Globetrotter,fridge,microwave and flat screen TV fitted are a few of its creature comforts. Still getting about plenty South Coast to Inverness and all points in between.
