    My old girl...

    Well it’s almost ‘run in’ now, Mine hit 170k a few weeks back , owned it for almost 3 n half years and it’s still a pleasure to drive, it’s going to take me another 5 years to get to 200k and I’ve no urge to replace it, we (wife n skids) are off to Bridlington tomorrow, bout 160 mile round trip and I’ve recently run some very impressive fuel additive thru it and I’ll reset my mpg before setting off to see what I can get, I’ve managed 56mpg on previous trips!

    Some BMW parts prices have gone through the roof!

    I went to a place and had a couple of cans made up as I couldn’t get my colour in the motor factors. £11 a can

    If you didn’t know they were new builds you’d never know they weren’t a hundred year old!

    Anyone got a bit of love for old Fords?

    There’s a guy that has a stall at the monthly auto jumble and he is there without fail every time, he has alsorts of brand new Austin / British Leyland parts, from allegro chrome to montego rear quarters, I always have good nosey what he has brought even tho I have no use for any of it, I have a full set of nearly new 3 door cosworth floor mats in the shed that’ll be worth a few quid, as well as Astra the parts and more Sierra stuff than I’d like to admit to

    Ooh did you ever replace the rear shocks? Ridiculously expensive and was probably the reason why owners scrapped or got rid

    Similar thing happened with old ford parts bout 10 years ago, could pick a cosworth engine up for less than a grand, I’ve still got a shed load of mk1 Sierra stuff, I think I’ll use it as my retirement fund

    '95 518i running issue

    I had quite a few faults with the car I bought and I eventually found the main problem and sorted it but replaced quite a few things before I figured it out, mine ran like a bag of crap when first started but this wasn’t the problem I was trying to fix, as a matter of ruling things out i replaced the o2 sensor, although it didn’t fix my main problem the car ran spot on from cold after replacing it, cost bout £20 from the usual auction site , I also have the overpowered 518i

    Looking for a weekend convertible?

    Fortunately they never made a 5er soft top, personally I’d go for a nice e30 convertible that’s not been ‘pimped’ I’ve just been looking at one on t’e bay, met green 318i looks fresh as a daisy n priced at 5995 or best offer, lovely colour n very standard

    Calypso's project E34 520i - which is actually blue!

    Good stuff! Apart from having radio1 on in one of the pics as a newbie to e34s I’ve also found that the door cards have an eastern block air to them.
