    E39 M5 Prices

    Hi Dennis i know the one you mean at £30k, I saw this up for sale over a year ago for £15k, just before I could afford it then it disappeared and reappeared up for £30k the photo is proof, I did email him asking if he put at that price just to see if he got interest ... he assured me it was worth this amount .....even with the incorrect colour wheels.....it’s still for sale

    Anyone bought a car abroad and driven home?

    I am really looking forward to it, I keep inspecting the videos I have of the car, although the Mrs told me the real reason she has never been abroad is that she doesn’t want to fly..... this should be fun im thinking diazepam ;-)

    Anyone bought a car abroad and driven home?

    After 4 hours solid on the phone I managed to find a company that said “that’s no problem that’s what we do” they even mirrored my insurance from the truck to use my no claims discount, covered for a year without silly costs and comprehensive cover whilst in Sweden!! they are called sky insurance, the guy was a diamond. He insured it under the vin,and said it’s all done! Quite reasonable too

    You have a point I could ask my brother, I'm sure he has trade insurance!! It's worth a punt, cheers
  10. I’ve put this in general discussion hoping all will see it. Im going to purchase, hopefully my next m5 in Sweden in just over a week. The first insurance company I called, Adrian flux, said I’d have to insure the In Sweden then tell them when I expect to board a ferry and they will insure it from there?? The guy was young and probably inexperienced. Has anyone else done what I’m hoping to do? Any help gratefully received cheers Rob

    Anyone got a bit of love for old Fords?

    Ha it makes you laugh...irresponsible and to think now a 1.9 tdi would leave it for dust. It is great to look back and realise how people thought back then

    My M5 search

    Hi Dennis, that could be possible since we own a pub.....pop down and have a steak, we've just won a certificate of excellence so i'm sure we can sort you out. That's a real offer if you come to Harwich, I know you were joking (or were you?) but i'm not...:-) Ill take a look at that thread, new alloys is quite something!! Yes i'd love to get to some meets, they probably happen at weekends which is my busiest times but as we're building our business we are getting more and more staff Cheers Dennis Rob

    How did you find it? I would never have found it If Dennis hadn’t of pointed it out to me. The owner is a diamond, he’s told me the cheapest route and will pick us up even offered to put us at his parents! The Mrs comment is what got me “so my first trip abroad is to buy a car, great” she is cool though and Looking forward to it....I think :-)
