    E34 Headliner material idea's

    Did this on my E34 but in black. Only thing I will say is that the front lip by the sun visors, make sure the new trim comes back round on itself and gets fixed or pinned in between the roof and the roof trim to make sure it will never sag again at the front. Other than that pretty straight forward job and I just googled a few local independent car trim specialist and just brought them the whole roof trim panel section (including the pillars) to save the labour costs of removal and assembly.

    Yeah got to be said I'm not a massive fan of that Scorpion back box either, looks a bit chav if I'm being honest but each to their own! But then again I'm sad and much prefer the oem look, as I feel my boy racer days are well and truly behind me!! Still, lovely E34 but I just personally feel that dtm upswept style pipe doesn't suit the car at all.... That nice clean white bumper trim will probably turn a nice shade of soot before long....

    I'm just in absolute ore of the time, money and effort you have put into this fantastic project. It's going to be one hell of beautiful car to drive, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't slightly envious!! Keep up the great work, it's going to be well worth it

    Clucking result!

    I'm sorry to hear that. At the end of the day a car is just a bit of metal with a wheel at each corner, but thieving little chavs gaining entry in your family home when everyone is asleep is another subject entirely....... Glad your all ok.

    Help with "Alpina" B10 cam install requested

    Personally I don't think the cam is the problem here and even going back to the standard setup may not solve the problem at all....... I could well be wrong, I've not had much experience with the M30b35 lump but like I said one of the resident M30 guru's will hopefully chime in and save the day!

    Help with "Alpina" B10 cam install requested

    Well I'm sorry to state the obvious but you've messed up something on the rebuild so I would check and double check all your work..... If the engine was running okish (despite having a bent valve!) I would say that you've not put it back together quite right. As per video sounds, to me anyway, much like hunting caused by a vacuum leak. It could also be something as daft as a sensor wire not being plugged back in correctly. Someone with more experience on the M30's should be able to chime in and offer further, more specific advice. Either way good luck and hopefully you'll get it all sorted soon

    MOT advice

    Maximum time for a valid MOT is 12 months end of. No such thing as a "13 month MOT" because it doesn't exist

    530d Glowplugs Replaced.. kinda..

    Agreed lol. If every time I did maintenance work I knew there was a good chance of breaking something (your not the first person to break a glow plug in a M57 and I doubt the last either) I wouldn't touch anything at all unless the engine refused to start all together. It's the law of it ain't broke don't fix it lol

    530d Glowplugs Replaced.. kinda..

    Right o, that makes sense to me. So its pretty much what Duncan and I had assumed, the plugs are only used for a cold start scenario and nothing more.....
