  1. Hello And Welcome I'm a firm beleaver that somethings are just meant to be and today that philosophy come bouncing into play much like it did with the Silver Unit ( Butler HQs Original Silver 540i ) Today innocently going to view an E34 with my Poppa ( Carl-E34 ).. 100 + miles from home as you do on arrival I became strongly attached to this diamond in the rough I couldn't help but think with a little Butler HQ love It could make a very special E34 and I truly thought that maybe Butler HQ was its last hope. Shes defiantly a project make no mistake about that but what else are you gonna do on a cold damp winter weekend ? before I could pull myself away as in the worlds of the late Marlon Brando the seller made me an offer I couldn't refuse... and a deal was done. I'll be embarking on this project with one person in mind. Tomorrow will be the full fat first update with all the great and gory details. Comments Welcome.

  3. I am looking for two front seats in very good condition. Caramel nappa leather, code M1CR or M3CR. Would consider to buy the rear seat as well, if we can arrange shipping (I'm in Sweden). Doesn't matter if it is RHD or LHD as I only need the seat leather and some other details. Send me a PM or email to hd91@m5portal.com and we can work something out. Also looking for the right mirror glass/lense, aspheric version. And I need the plastic battery cover.
  4. champagne glovebox

    Some of you might of seen had a spare leather champange glovebox for sale. Not much of a market for these as if you have champange fitted to car then most prob all ready have a glovebox, this was a one off glove box having a champange Suede linner fitted but had seen better days. ( from leather dash car ) had been badly stained red in places. so had an idea to dye black... then recolour leather black. so have had a go at colouring the suede... leather yet to be done as got no dye not 100% but looks alot better more of hell lets see what it looks like than anything else... about £20 of dye used, soaks in very fast.
  5. Hi All , Just wondering if anyone on here has some E38 Comfort Rear Headrests they'd be willing to part with. Ideally in black leather but willing to take other coloured headrests as i can dye them black if need be. Thanks Jay
  6. Good black leather dye

    Hi guys I am looking for some good black leather dye. I have previously used gliptone but can't seem to see the same stuff anymore. Any help appreciated thank you Toni
  7. Hi, New to the forum and looking for some advise please. I bought a 2007 520D LCi 12 months ago and love the car. The only thing I don't love is the cloth seats. When looking around I didn't put leather on the list of required spec. Wish I had! The cloth (grey) seems to show up everything. Even after cleaning stains just come back , I'm guessing thats due to the stain being on the cushioning. I'm after some advice on replacement leather seats. Can they be Pre LCI or have to be LCI?, Electric seats? where the current ones aren't can these be fitted and wired? Any things to look out for? Are all E60 seats (such as 530D) the same? Thanks in advance.
  8. Lads any way this can be rescued ? It's the drivers seat of my e39 . It's sagged at this point an the leather seems to have streched. Any way of tighten it up again???
  9. Hey guys, Today i've purchased an OEM sports steering wheel (late prefacelift one) for the E39. Yesterday I sat in a few new BMWs at the dealership and loved how the steering wheels felt. Can I see some pictures from those that had their wheels retrimmed, and the cost of it, thanks I'm thinking of having perforated leather on the East/West parts of the wheel, and Nappa smooth leather on the North/South parts of the wheel, with either Silver or Black stitching. I'm moving toward black stitching atm. Something like this (obviously mine will have the buttons on the wheel): Many Thanks
  10. Gliptone Scuffmaster Black N6SW

    I've looked through Gliptone's website to find a match for my E39's black leather, but can't find an appropriate match for my N6SW leather. Anyone bought a Scuffmaster kit for black e39 leather? If so, which kit did you use? Thanks.
