    Genuine BMW Style 65 Wheels, staggered

    Sorry, they look a lot like them. looking at the 127, they look a lot like CSL wheels, which mine are not. I have 5 of the wheels in the attached photo. 16" * 7.5J i think. They have the number: 67517624 stamped in the rear. They have a little kerb rash but other than that are straight, not buckled and 4 have good tyres (continental). Apologies NF aka Deepan

    I'm not, i need to replace a set of style 65's that are beyond repair. i do have a set of 127's that i may be inclined to part with, that are in good nick with a decent set of tyres. one has a bulge that needs to be replaced, but i have a brand new spare that has never been out of it's packaging.

    @robo can you pm me you're address, i can pick these up either tomorrow or next weekend. I'm by heathrow, so only have the M25 to contend with. Cheers NF aka Deepan

    Wanted - Any damaged/scrap OEM Style 65 M5 wheels

    One wheel is beyond repair. one needs a refurb. I need a single wheel to make the set, two rears would be preferable. Swap these for one of your sets of wheels?

    If i can get a better set of wheels for mine, you can have my set, or we can discuss a swap of some kind

    wheels and bumper

    Looking for a staggered set of Style 65, ideally something in need of a refurb, but nothing buckled. light kerb rash is fine. Also looking for a sport touring rear bumper preferrably in BiarritzBlau but any colour is fine. Cheers. NF aka Deepan

    Any Aircon experts around?

    @Yokozuna, I apologise. I've got a few arguments with insurance/recovery agents going on and I'm a bit pissed off (understatement of the century). I was out of line. I'd rather try and get it fixed by myself, failing a swap of the pressure switch, and UV dye location, i'll be calling up an aircon expert. @d_a_n1979 I've been talking to an automotive aircon engineer, and am following their advice as well as from people here. i'm waiting for him to have a free weekend, with the unprecedented hot weather, it's a very busy time for them. @duncan-uk Apologies. post will be edited. Cheers NF aka Deepan

    *edited* Ok, i'll grab one, and have a look. have a pressure sensor coming in the post, and found that it's got a valve so that, once the switch is removed, the refrigerant won't leak out more than a couple of drops much like a tyre pressure valve. i'll swap them over when the switch arrives and go from there. Cheers NF aka Deepan

    Hi strongbow, Where would you say is the most common place for a leak? When tracing the pipework at a friends place, we couldn't see any obvious refrigerant leaks anywhere, but 99% of the time, i'm looking in the wrong place entirely. Cheers

    S62 Rebuild

    Thanks all. Getting a bit more confident, that if i have a space to work, i can do little bits of preventative maintenance myself. I went for one that's got a better history (from what i've been told) and am waiting for a print out of the history and maintenance visits and work. i collect on Friday. i'll be stripping, cleaning both the engine parts and the inside body parts and then will begin the transplant. I shall keep people appraised with photos and details of work. hoping to get a new clutch/flywheel. cold air induction kit, and maybe a couple of tasty bits while its all out. as well as rust treatment, a slight grease up (not that kind of grease up you dirty scoundrels :D) If anyone fancies giving us a hand, payment is in cake and beer, drop me a line. Thanks NF aka Deepan
