  1. Sorry, it is a personal reason. I am gutted but not a lot I can do now. I hope to find another in time.
  2. I presume so. Keep your eyes peeled...
  3. Disaster! For reasons I can't control, this purchase is not happening now I feel like a complete tool getting my hopes up so high...
  4. Colour change on HPI

    Thanks for the info cableguy, much appreciated.
  6. Colour change on HPI

    Hi all Some help appreciated please. I just did a HPI check on the car I'm buying and all is well apart from 2 things. 1. Report is indicating car has 5 manual gears when the seller states 6-speed (can't see from the pics which it is). 2. The report notes a colour change 23/3/1999 from grey to blue. This ties up with the MOT which states blue colour too. The car is described as fjord grey. Possibly resprayed back in 1999? Should I be concerned?
  7. Yes, 6-speed. It has the EDC system fitted and Ive read only bad things about it (of course when it goes wrong that is). I know the owner has had new dampers a little time ago. How long do these things last?
  8. New to a classic BMW

    Hello everyone! Although I'm not a new forum member, I will soon be a new owner of an E34 M5 3.8, Fjord Grey saloon (picking up next Saturday). I've already introduced myself on the E34 specific section. Pictures as soon as I'm able to after collection.
  9. Oh, I forgot to ask. The MOT record states the car is blue but in reality it is this Fjord grey colour. Is this down to the MOT tester's colour perception rather than something for me to worry about? Do I need to correct it somewhere?
  10. From the way the current owner enthused about the previous owner (regarding no expense-spared ownership), it could well be your friend and I could be a very lucky man!
  11. The current owner said he's only had the car for a year or so and he bought it from a mega-enthusiast from London.
  12. Hi Kobayashi That sounds very encouraging to hear someone may know the car from the past! Thanks to you and all the other members for your welcoming replies.
  13. It certainly looks good and well-cared for, hopefully the MOT doesn't throw up anything too serious. I'll keep you all posted.
  14. If you mean the one that was on ebay, yes.
