  1. Depends on the breather hose itself, but if for example you're talking about the turbo vacuum hoses, then as long as the composite material is near enough the same then happy days, bobs you're uncle and all that. I did the same with my E30 turbo vacuum hoses (8mm diameter) and used eBay's finest as opposed to Samco etc and haven't had an issue at all. If I do, it's pennies to replace. My two rupees. Deepan
  2. Parsons Green. Hope the injured aren't that way for long. Doubt it will ever end, but my thoughts on it will open a can of worms that isn't for today. Thoughts go out to those caught in the middle.
  3. Potentially something to look at but in the time frame, nigh-on impossible. The car and myself. One person even said that all 5 series cars are on high rating groups for insurances so expect to pay more than what you may usually expect. I was looking at maybe a trade policy but that also came to around £2000. Im hoping that the formal court papers will cause the third party to think more seriously and settle out of court to make it go away seeing as they're the lazy ones. I made and submitted my statement and photos of the incident and area within hours of the event. The biker hasn't even done that yet. And it's been 10 months. Sorry to hijack the thread @jimmyj
  4. None of the classic insurers would touch it with the open claim and normal insurance companies are quoting ridiculous prices. I'd rather walk for that money. My postcode is fairly attractive to price rises but I've never had a theft/damage arising home in the 25 years I've been at this address.
  5. My manual sport touring will have to make way pretty soon. A motorbike had a disagreement with my front bumper last year, and even after its been replaced my insurance has filed court papers with the biker and his insurance because they won't pull their finger out and respond to repeated requests for information. Can't afford the insurance. £300 last year and £2000 this coming year (1st October onwards) with a claim still pending. It's got a couple of bits that need attention and a couple of surface rust spots and 217k on the clock but drives well for a manual.
  6. Mines showing the signs of surface rust in a few places but is still pretty solid. Shame it'll be off soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Suspension and bumpers sills and spoiler if applicable Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Had it done by Phil @ CPC in Amersham. Took a few days due to a couple of parts being incompatible and having to re-enter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Would it be vastly different? any photos would help, at this point, something is better than nothing. Cheers Deepan
  10. Facelift. 53 plate registered in early 2004.
  11. Hi all, So my touring hatch window actuator keeps popping open, and from what I've read on here the wiring and/or switch itself needs attention. The rear wiper arm itself has been removed by the previous owner, and due to the covers coming off, it looks like the rain is shorting the wiring somewhere. What I'm really after is a few photos of where to start looking, and what trim to remove to inspect said wiring please? Also if anyone has made, or know's of a video to swap out the locking mechanism properly, as it looks to be slightly rusted and i don't want to break the glass while i try to 'persuade' the lock off. If any wiring gurus want to come and help me with it, i can pay in cake and beer. Cheers. Deepan
  12. Oh yea, mine was 212k before I went manual a few weeks ago Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. The first thing that struck me was that he bowls like a slow muralitharan. Throwing it from the side as opposed to over the top. Straight forward middle stump though so good on him! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
