    1989 E34 Headlight issue

    1989 530i Hi guys, quite new to E34's, so I thought I'd ask the people who know.... When I got the car, the NS headlight bulb was off. 'Low Beam' warning was on the display. Changed the fuse, and hey presto....working. Used the car tonight in the fading light for the first time, turned them on...nothing. Sidelights are on, no dipped beam at all. There's no warnings on the display either. All help welcomed and appreciated.

    Haha, yes, Guisborough. If it's 3mm out of position, I don't really care. If each letter in the badge itself is 2mm too small, I don't really care. I'm not hunting OEM perfection. I just want the car looking smart, clean and sounding good. What I've done so far has pleased me, and that's all that matters I guess.

    Spotted this 316i near the E34 yesterday, also in Alpine white.... Then this morning, a modern 5. I know which one I'd rather have though... The lack of a 530i badge was bugging me, so I addressed it...

    I'll see how I get on with the exhaust. To be honest, the OEM one on the car was blowing badly, and the Scorpion was available at a stupidly low price, so it was a no-brainer for now.

    Little update. The Scorpion couldn't sit on the back seat for too long, so I took it into my mates garage to get it up on the ramps... I know which one I'd rather have... Original old and holed system...... off..... Middle section on... and rear section on .... Looks, and sounds, sweet. Love the upward flick on the tailpipes.... Later on yesterday, I spent half an hour under the bonnet cleaning down the engine a bit.... Noticed a little split... Possibly, along with a blowing exhaust, an ingredient in the intermittent lumpy, hesitant running issue?? I've taped it up now to see if there's an improvement. It actually drove very nicely after the exhaust was fitted yesterday, but it was never an issue that was there all the time. I was hoping to take it to it's first show today at Raby Castle, but the weather was set in wet and grey for the day, so I didn't bother, and hence I'm not sure if the running issue will return. Time will tell.

    The spare tyre had seen better days. I had a feeling that a plug repair might not be enough.... ...so it now has a new tyre. I think I've sourced a fix for the blowing exhaust. Picking it up tomorrow. How good is it to be in the right place at the right time?......

    The plan becomes more appealing, and logistically easier, by the minute....
