  1. Looks like my tesla reservation was on the nose. Will have to start buying stock in them at some point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. What's the centre bore for these? OK for E39 @ 74.1mm? If so, I'll have them.
  3. Makes me want to cry when I think about all I've spent so far. 🤦‍♂️[emoji24] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Friends, Romans, Countrymen... Wait wrong speech... Anyway, my car is going to the illustrious Phil Crouch at CPC, but I would like to clean the gearbox and diff etc before it goes, so at least some of the undercarriage is clean. For once. I'll attack some surface rust and dust covers when the car comes back. So, in summation, what do I use to clean the outside of the gearbox and diff so it's presentable. Muchos gracias señores.
  6. If you take it to your council recycling place, I think you might be able to get some monies/shekels for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I bought an E30...#FacePalm
  8. @AlexGSi2000 looks awesome! i'm looking around for a 2260v so i can hybrid it. I spoke to a few people, and there aren't many stage 3 clutches about for this application at all, and for the amount of torque produced, getting one wouldn't be worth it. (worth it if you're pushing past the 300bhp mark though). In interest of time (i'm having a manual swap done in a couple of weeks) i went and bought a LUK clutch kit and dual mass flywheel from GSF (£365 delivered, weekend code) Look forward to seeing how this intercooler setup works for you, mainly so i can copy it. lol. I'll remember to order the bigger clamps and gaskets etc. Deepan

  11. 6 hours labour is tight, If they're working on that car solely then yea, it's about right. This is the predicament we're coming to, and I'm in a similar boat as you in that my MOT failed on brake lines and hangers, I had them changed, did what I could on my drive and then handed the car to a friend to finish. It's more the labour that kills you, as the parts aren't that dear. But bills add up. If you feel it's worth keeping the car on the road and the It has a sentimental value to you, keep it. If not, break it. A wide old man said to me, "you're like me, we have a dad affliction to scrap" [emoji23] and that's what they are really, it's a passion and feeling that drives us. All comes down to what the car means to you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. @Stage 4 Did you upgrade your clutch for this?
  13. OK, I'll check my bits to see if they're OK to use. I'll ask check the springs etc.
  14. Do they need anything or just fit and go? Ie: springs, bushes, dampener? I'd be very interested providing I pass my MOT this afternoon Potentially pick up tomorrow morning.
