    Oxford Green e34 530i v8 auto

    +1 Personally I agree with the above. 2.5k no more imho.

    E34 Touring wanted

    Yeah I did notice that the number plate seemed rather appropriate for the car!

    Yes I would say 145k miles is correct.

    No more Manual BMW - Well 3 Series that is!

    My X-gf had one of those Nissan puke things and what a pile of crap that was!! I think it was only a couple of years old with about 20k miles on the clock and it was horrendous to drive!! Gear shift/ selection was just cringe. Hated driving it that much I made it clear to her I'd rather walk to do the weekly shop than use that abomination of car. Then again I only really got in the bloody thing when I wanted a lift back from the pub!

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    I know from experience that a cup of tea on the morning drive to work sits a lot nicer on the wood gear surround rather than the vinyl one

    Nice. Congrats that is all sorted now and you are now able to enjoy your new pride and joy!

    BMW 635csi Auto .. scheduled for destruction!!

    Idiots..... What a waste!! The E24 was IMHO one of the, if not THE most beautiful model of bmw that was ever made..... R.I.P 635i What a sad end to a sad story
  9. Depends on how much diesel was left in the tank when the petrol was added......I.E ratio of petrol to diesel But as a generalisation I would say that it will more than likely to be fine to use in your Honda lawn mower however it will probably take like 10 years to use it all up in the mower!!

    540i Injector voltage ?

    Agreed. Exactly my sentiments as confirmed above

    540i Injector voltage ?

    Sorry but disagree with that as when I've overhauled injectors in the past, I used the "screw method" and it worked a treat. I held the screw in a vice, point up, then slowly screwed the injector on to it and with a short pull, out came the filter basket nice and easy. The method you used probably worked for you, but I would be hesitant to recommend the "chisel method" to others as it could very easily mess up those expensive injectors if it goes wrong. I'm not in any way saying the "screw method" is bullet proof, just that it personally worked for me and that any one attempting to overhaul their injectors should proceed with caution as one can easily damage the fragile and expensive injectors

    Help needed.

    Yeah saw that one and seeing as it was posted 11:29pm Friday evening, I figured he'd probably had a drink or three when he sent it lol

    E34 Touring wanted

    E34 tourers are getting pretty thin on the ground these days Joe..... If you want a good to excellent example, you will have to be prepared to pay strong money for one....

    Good congrats to all

    A £150000 E30?

    No one in the right mind is going to pay 150k for an e30, even if it is a M3 and that merc just looks awful imho... Back end end looks ok I suppose but the front....... That's one ugly looking car

    The most Russian 7 Series ever

    I don't what a Russian 740i would normally look like, all I know is that car looks bloody awful!!

    BMW 635csi Auto .. scheduled for destruction!!

    I'm interested...... Gotta love an E24 635i

    E30 Touring...

    I hear what you saying, the m20b25 felt gutless compared to the 540i however I still miss it none the less

    E30 Touring...

    Love an E30 touring.... Still regret selling my 325i touring manual.... If anyone knows of an E30 touring for sale, I'm all ears.....

    E34 M5 Touring...... right hand drive...

    Agreed. Those days are long gone!

    E34 M5 Touring...... right hand drive...

    It's nice but I feel 16k is rather strong money for what is essentially a converted 525i touring..

    Ever wondered why your duty free's get broken?

    What a dickhead!! He was obviously having a bad day and stupid enough to do it in front of a plane load of passengers!! Doubt he's still got a job after that appalling behaviour!
