    Old bird looking for help to trace a part

    I have never had a new car, I only feel safe in old solid lumps! Plus I think they are far more stylish, I really am not fond of the look of most modern cars. I had eight 190E's as I am short and can't see over the bonnet of most cars (including my BMW) and the shape and Merc badge made it so easy to park, I used the badge like the sight on a rifle to judge things. Batty old bird!

    That name rings bells, did he used to be mobile? If so I think he used to take care of my Triumph 2000, now that was a car!! He taught me how to balance the carbs on it and how to change the diaphragms as I got ripped off by another guy. I will have to ask my daughter, she will remember

    Oh really! It's a very basic one, cloth not leather, no air con (which I did have in one of my many 190e's and that was an A reg!) Someone had put a round, blue thingy on the engine, all the blokes who see it are impressed by this thing but I don't know what it is. I must say joining here has made me want to sort my car out, I had really lost interest but finding Tim and knowing things can now be fixed has given me a boost. Also hearing that it's not just an old heap which is what all my workmates call it, has got me at it again.

    Lights all fixed. Thanks to all who helped, next project is to find out why my heater takes a year and a half to get hot? My daughter says BMW's have slow heaters in general but my husband had a Z3 and the heater in that was good and fast.....

    Just to say, I received my lights today, all in perfect nick the day after I bought them, I am having them fitted tomorrow, so thanks for the tip Dan, Tim is as good as gold, I have a few other bits needed as cash permits and I will be on the phone to him no problem....

    Actually, Tim told me it is an E34 520, I had a google up and he is right, mine does not look as flashy as the E39 it has different headlights, mine are separate not in a unit thingy X

    I would if it wasn't such a skip Sandip, it's just my car, it was badly keyed when I bought it, so the bodywork has never been great, but the engine is fantastic....

    Now I know where to get stuff I may be able to make my car look good again, bit tragic at the moment!

    Thank you so much Dan, I didn't expect anyone to answer so soon, I have phoned him but it went to answer phone so I left a message, fingers crossed X

It indicates and brakes and I think the reverse My car is a 5 series 20i SE automatic saloon first registered in 1996 I have searched all sorts of sites but none of the photo's look anything like mine, can anyone tell me what I have to ask for, please?
