    E39 M5: 'The Next Big Thing' on YouTube

    Yes beautiful country, we tend to head to the south as fast as we can hence overnight in Lyon but chose somewhere new to visit on the return leg so Dijon, Reims, Troyes etc The race track is worth a stop In the e36 M3 we did a tour Calais>Paris>Lyon>Frejus via route Napoleon (stayed a week and traveled about to Cannes and antibes, St Tropez) then home via Bordeaux, Nantes, Chartre and Paris again. Was a good trip. Anyway total thread drift...

    528i won't start

    Do you think maybe its priming with the ignition, then firing but not then switching on the pump? so dies when the primed fuel is spent? I'd be looking at the relays i think. Other thought is there an immobilizer? A long time ago my brother-in-law had a 993, i borrowed it to meet some friends for lunch in London. After lunch i went to fire up the car and it ran, then died. Did same thing over and over. Called AA. when patrol man arrived i was sat in car showing him what was happening and i saw a fuse on the mat. Nosing about i found an empty fuse slot roughly above. I suggested we put it back in, AA man not keen but i did and problem solved. Seemed the immobilizer had two circuits, start and run and the run fuse had dropped out.

    Anyone selling a 1:43 scale E28?

    No just examples of what i have/ is available, none of mine for sale. I think i have most of the e28 models available including a Herpa 1:87 528i bar the Norev and i had but sold the otto M5 and Alpina else it gets silly!

    Yes the dealer M5 or autoart M535i are nice and probably the pick nice to see they're selling for way more than i paid! I did though sell a 1/18 Auto Art M535i too cheap.... There is another Neo one in a better livery but they're race cars only. The Gama one i have had since the late 80's so its sentimental rather than a perfect model. For cheap the bond one is ok

    Anyone selling a 1:43 scale E28?

    Well now, i'm selling at the mo but choices are: Gama Neo Autoart Dealer model which i think is Auto Art anyway The last 3 are very good, the Gama is an old model now but not terrible https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-528i-by-Gama-1-43-Scale/333897008457?hash=item4dbdd00549:g:XxEAAOSwB1RgMmqF https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEO-BMW-528i-Gr-A-E28-Gitanes-WM-Racing-1-43-45667/143137908705?epid=1217389236&hash=item2153af27e1:g:RrQAAOSwyUpcavkP https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUTOart-1-43-BMW-M5-E28-Grey-met-Modell-Nr-55152/174505238875?hash=item28a152a15b:g:GxwAAOSwVbheoJI5 If you search "BMW octopussy" in ebay you'll find a polizi 518i which isn't bad https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fabbri-Original-boxed-BMW-518-Polizei-James-Bond-Octopussy/193825094131?hash=item2d20e039f3:g:jdwAAOSwT7Jf6bdV There is a superking matchbox too but thats rubbish! In 1:18 the otto models are fab, as are the auto art and there is a Norev which looks good value but i've not seen one in the flesh to comment

    ebay and vat.

    On LBC a caller postulated (not necessarily stated as fact) that maybe the reason we didn't close our borders prior to leaving the EU is that it would expose that point ie we always could....
  7. It does, i have no need but it has a strange appeal!
  8. It wasn't the colour, which was a silver with hint of gold sort of hue, just some nice wheels which for the first time made me think actually that's not a bad shape. Not a fan as such of bangle but i do like some of his stuff Z4, E60/61, fiat 20v coupe etc

    Yeh can get busy but we stay in a small villa with a small pool and tend just to relax there with the odd trip out.

    E39 M5: 'The Next Big Thing' on YouTube

    Frejus, normally we get an early ferry take 2 days, overnight in lyon getting to the south early afternoon for a swim. Last time i double booked myself - had a day at edgebaston the day before we would normally leave and figured an early start the morning after was not a good idea so booked a tea time ferry so we could eat then set through france in the night. Aim was not to miss a day of the holiday. As i say a silly reason...

    Doesn't need to be an M5, my 530d has been to the cote d'azure 3 times now and i hope will again. For silly reasons last time was through the night in one hit. 750miles in one sitting and being a d one fuel stop....
  12. It was 2005, I was stood in Chamonix outside the apartment we were staying in at dusk and i saw a gold e60 SE with BBS wheels and i thought - "yes i like that" was it that long ago!

    My first BMW - E28 528i

    Nice looking car - A/C and cruise were two things i really wanted on mine. If i recall BMW sell a kit to convert from R12 too (or they did)
