  1. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-750i-V12-1996-N-REG-E38-5-4-Litre/223037739645?hash=item33ee15d27d:g:aQUAAOSwoHJbNk9P If that was for sale a few weeks ago I’d have been very tempted! Looks very well looked after...
  2. Sorry pal, just seen this. Did what I normally do, buy a car, fix it properly, get bored with it & sell it on Ive been hankering after another land-barge for a while & the 730D I’ve got now is doing the job nicely

    E34 525i SE F reg low miles £1850

    That’s a lovely car! A bit of TLC, around £1k for parts and work & that’d be hell of a car for someone!

    Kit's E34 535i

    I There are lots of Style 32s out there on eBay. They’ll need a refurb, but there’s quite a few cheap set

    Kit's E34 535i

    Love Style 32s Some of the best alloys for BMs IMO... Would love a set of 20" Style 32s for my E65, but they're like rocking horse poo Re the stud conversion; I just used the 19mm nuts that came with them and then bought a Ford 19mm locker set; all that was needed was to drill through the top of the locking key to allow the stud to pass through. There are lots on eBay and they're around £15 IIRC

    Bmw 5 series e60 2003 engine over heating

    Coolant usually leaks from the side tanks of the rads, the header tank and the top small hose connections on the rad too. The water pumps can fail as well Personally I'd look to replace the whole lot otherwise you'll be chasing your tail IMO Are you able to get the car up to temp, whilst it's standing and then see where it starts to leak from?

    Rust e39 no hope?

    Cheaper ‘up Norf’ pal... Amd £700 for rear arches? Rip off price imo.

    Genuine E46 parts - worth selling?

    I'd try and sell the discs; not sure re the pads though. Unless they're bone dry, they may have degraded over time etc Genuine stuff, new, is always sought after etc!

    THE NEW PROJECT... NOT A 5! - 2006 E65 730D

    Car serviced today with thanks to Mark ( @Mashed Potatoes ) Oil and filter done K&N air filter fitted Swirl flaps fitted and all new gaskets etc Software checked and found to be bang up to date Cars booked into my local garage for Monday to have new rear tyres fitted and front lower arms swapped out (bushes gone) Front tyres were fitted yesterday and have been given a good scrub in today going down to the Wirral and back

    E39 M5 wanted

    You're back Scott... Shaking the dust off your BMW addiction are we? I do miss the Sate Green 530i; should never have sold it when I did!
  14. Give the holes a bloody good clean before you fit the studs... A good blast with brake/carb cleaner will do them a world of good. You'd be amazed how much shite builds up in there. If you can, a scrub with scolding hot water and fairly liquid and an old toothbrush works really well; just need to get the threads properly cleaned They're a doddle to fit, as above, use Loctite thread lock, just a dab on each and a decent 5mm socket and torque wrench Is it the Mtec kit you've gone for?
