    Who are we behind our usernames?

    I.m Mick.48,married to Donna,pretty much spent most my working life driving for a living,not a bad way to earn a living really,been all over UK and Europe and been paid to do it, I love anything with wheels, Also we,re really big animal lovers,we sponsor 3 dogs with the Dogs Trust,as well as having Hartley,our own Bullmastiff, I don,t have a massive amount of time for hobbies as i,m away all week with my job,so we just tend to chill at weekends,take Hartley out for walks and relax, I always browse this forum whether home or away,i think the advice,information and banter is brilliant,also the variety of members and their cars is great,it,s the only Forum i,m a member of now and imho the best i,ve been on.

    Rather a testing time as alternator failure fried electrics down stream and lots of issues including loss of instruments, so I cursed and shut door on it for three months. !! Started last week, new alternator fitted, still no charge and ignition warning light glowing like Santa's nose on Xmas eve. Fitted new oil pressure switch as it is linked, no improvement. Next move, so renewed relay in can, that fixed the charge but no reliable instruments, so then got and fitted voltage stabiliser after rewiring it as hiding on back of dash panel. ......it all works properly now. threw away alternator,12 volt relay and voltage stabiliser - all fried by stator burn out. So gave it a pat, cleaned it inside and out, put tools away after a test. Both happy again. So today, took it to the seaside for a treat, that is why I like the struggle of old cars and dont buy a new one, old = fixable, only £350 including eleccy man for an hour a pile of bits, a back ache and a few minor curses. Return to M5 issues this week.

    If your trying to lose some weight

    Well here's a diet that I've used in the past and lost 5 stone previously and kept it off for 5yrs and currently doing it again to lose a couple more after being lazy for the last 6 months and enjoying my food too much. It might not be to everyones liking and might not work with everyone but it works for me so thought I'd share it. If you do it, do it at your own risk! http://www.idiet4u.com/diets/sacredheart.html 1 thing though you NEED to be strict!

    Halfords Spanners

    Halfords have got a set of 25 spanners from 6 mm to 32 mm for £50! That's £2 per spanner! The only downside is that they're not Halfords Advanced but for this money I'm not complaining. I've already got all of these sizes in Snap-On and Halfords Professional but these would be good for chucking in a tool bag or carry box etc. given the price.

    BMW 535d (mapping)

    I have around 370bhp and 530ft of torque, no rolling road to back this but the map was done by eco tune (reputable) and I have their decat downpipe and dpf delete pipe, also egr plugged and coded out, I also blanked the flaps using pmw ones and fitted all blue silicone hoses in place of the normal black rubber ones as they perish, every vacuum line is now silicone as are my boost hoses, I also have a 100mm neck size pipercross foam come filter with a custom made Diy heatsheild for max turbo noise, the engine is now running strong, it's now a fairly quick car for its size I want more from it but pretty much done the basics to get over 400 you will need turbo work but 370/380 with the above is achieveable...

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Sunday and a few things done on the old girl the centre consol is completed now that was finished in the morning. Just needs a wipe down In the afternoon while I played with some lights for the car, hippie Dave went to work on the control arms upper and lower, as well as the anti roll bar all being replaced as well as the bushes. This proved to be a long slog and in the end had to completely remove the whole thing from the steering rack. By this time we were losing light. So put it all away and dinner with a couple of beers before he headed home. Bill

    I have done that before and it defo works and once you get over the fact that you. are just eating fuel to stay alive it's not bad...I wish I didn't like my food so much then I wouldn't need to diet ...I would love to treat food as fuel only lol ..how hard can that be

    Avus E34 540/6 Touring restoration

    Minor update time. The garage has said that my car should be coming inside for the welding to be finished. I really want an MOT before winter properly sets in as it really needs a few miles on it to loosen up the oily bits. It started on the button yesterday and is running nicely, it shouldn't need much for the MOT. I bought a nice set of sport seats off Geoff, they've been recoloured by Bespoke and look very nice indeed. If i'm honest, I prefer black interiors but these seats should make a big difference after having the knackered comforts in the car. .
