  5. Premium rear speakers

    Hey Dan, Here are some photographs of the underside of the parcel shelf showing the two sets of OEM screw holes: The set of 4 holes close to the speaker cut out are for the standard speaker. The second (wider & longer) set of 4 holes are for the premium speaker: Premium speakers were fitted as standard to quite a lot of the US market cars so they come up for sale on "mye28.com" quite often so might be worth a browse. good luck with your quest. Regards, Mick
  6. Premium rear speakers

    Hey Dan, I have had premium speakers retro-fitted to both the Diamantschwartz Eta and the Zobelbraun Eta. As far as I know the premium speakers fit straight into the holes and screw fixing points for the standard speakers but you will need longer screws due to the increased height of the premium enclosure. Picture of the Diamantschwartz Eta hybrid fit: Parcel shelf before premium speakers were fitted: Regards, Mick

  10. The BMW5 random picture thread

    We were here last year too and also went down the coast to Lunenburg. Spent 2 weeks here for final interviews, orientation and house hunting. We liked it so much that we sold up and went all in and arrived back here at the end of June. There is an annual BMW festival (Tedfest) down in Mississauga in the summer. Might be worth trying to work it in with your next family visit to Toronto. We went this year and it was a grand day out with well over 200 BMW's. It was more like 7 days out with the 3600km round trip Really enjoying the lifestyle at the moment while it is still summer. Snow blowers, snow shovels and ice scrapers are on sale in Canadian Tyre already Quick photograph of sunset across the lake at the bottom of the garden: Suitably maritime door mat: Loon on the lake: Regards, Mick
  11. Taking photos at car dealerships

    Hey Derek, Sounds like you may have crossed swords with Mark T. His way of giving me advice for my Bronzitbeige Eta a few years back went along the lines of: "We sell new replacement bumpers for those you know". To which my reply was "No you don't, you only stock and sell 66% of the chrome front bumper and 0% of the chrome rear bumper otherwise we would not be having this conversation because I would already have changed them if you did". He is a little bit out of touch. Regards, Mick
  12. E28 525e - Etas Ready to Deploy to Nova Scotia

    Currently researching the pros and cons between registering as a 30 year + vintage plate or a 15 years + collector car. Nova Scotia plate on the back of the car only. Will most likely leave the UK plate on the front much like every other Euro import Intentions are to build a significant 4 - 6 car garage / workshop next to the house with 4 post lift and storage above cunningly discussed to look like a barn The E28zone.ca needs to reside somewhere The Bronzitbeige Eta will be joining the RHD flotilla once the half life body refit and repaint is complete. Intend to begin recruiting some LHD E23, E24 and E28 candidates for the LHD flotilla next year / once the barn is completed Lots more space and options across on the left hand side of the pond. Enjoy your weekend. Regards, Mick
  13. E28 525e - Etas Ready to Deploy to Nova Scotia

    Hi Derek, It varies provence by provence. Prince Edward island all RHD cars are banned . Quebec you can drive through in a RHD but are not permitted to own or register RHD if you live there . Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia I believe are all allowed to own and register. I have seen more RHD cars in Canada than I ever saw LHD cars in the UK. Insurance, now that is another story... Hi John, Nice of you to say so sir. Really looking forward to wrenching on the Eta's inside at last . I have conducted all of my previous automotive work "al fresco" where I seemed to spend more time getting tools out and putting them away than actually using them. I certainly couldn't put them down and walk off and leave them or they would have walked off too. Need to build a bikeshed for the bikes Happy days Regards, Mick
  14. E34 US spec bumper lights (wiring looms)

    Hey Carl, Try reaching out across the pond to Andy "South26" on "myE28.com". He has broken some E34's and E28's and may well have what you are looking for. I have brought from Andy a few times in the past couple of years (E28 third break light looms, heated seat looms, electric seat looms, door tweeter looms) and he is a stand up guy who I recommend unconditionally. Alternately, place a wanted add on "myE28.com" under the "For Sale / Wanted - Parts" section. If you are able to identify the part number from RealOEM and post a link (a picture paints a thousand works) with applicable model fitment then this generally helps to obtain a positive response. Good luck with your search. Regards, Mick
