  1. Blimey Dan, what you gone and done??!! lol
  2. Well that could be a lot worse
  3. That looks smart Rich. Window surrounds painted gloss black?
  4. Nice work! What sort of money do the genuine headlights come in at? Was it from a dealer?
  5. Well done Rich, I'm surprised it didn't go quicker. Picks of the X5 please!! How is it?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Interior looks tidy, good work. I reckon a Sport model black headlining and pillar trims would finish that off nicely
  7. Sounds a fair shout
  8. GLWTS Rich - On the basis it's had your magic touch on it, it will be a good buy for someone My mate just recently purchased a 640d. Absolutely EPIC motor!!

    Shampoo the car - you can get detox shampoo (Farcella do it) to take off as much residue of wax, polish etc. Then clay bar the car to ensure the paint is squeaky clean and free of contamination. You may need some glue and tar remover for any really stubborn spots. Then hit it (gently! lol) with the machine polisher. I use the Menzerna range of polishes - https://www.menzerna.com/products/polishes/car-polishes/ If you get ones with 'FG' after the number, it's 'Finished Gloss' so you can use a harder compound but still get a good finish without always having to do multiple stages. I do tend to finish with a fine one though. After that, a coat of sealer or wax to finish it off. Hope that helps

    That seems a reasonable price for all that work
  12. Wow great job on the seat Dan. Did he colour it? Has it made the rest of your interior look dirty by comparison now?

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Agree, that's a lot of car for the money. Amazing what you can get for a couple of grand nowadays. I didn't pay too much more for my E65 745i, less than 100k miles and in good order too.
