    Tiff drives every m5

    Tiff isn't on 5th Gear now, doing "love cars" as per the link.

    Worth 15 minutes and must say I agree with Tiff.

    Very nice. I think a black e28 with chrome is the perfect combination. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    E39 sunroof sizing?

    My worry is not so much the panel itself (if the part number x refs then yes it suits those cars) but if you are wanting to fit a glass roof in place of steel then I think you will find the mechanism is different between glass and steel.

    £3k spend or finance.....

    Don’t get me wrong. If I needed a car for commuting/ work then lease/ pcp etc may well make sense and I fear at some point it will be the only way to own a car as they become more disposable. But it I wouldn’t take on a liability just to “own” a car like that for vanities sake.

    I'd be spending £3k in your position. I think I'd be looking at a golf gti mk v or something. Own it and minimise debt Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    E28 2020 Calendars

    My memory might be failing me but I don't think it's ever had a feature in its own right but has been in various tbmw group shoots in the past. I sold my collection so can't check. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Air suspension / Changed No air !

    Subframe bushes aren't too bad with the right tool. If you can do the bags you can do the bushes. Jimmy on here rents it out - its currently sat in my garage waiting for its next task - drop him a PM if you need it.

    E28 Prices!!

    Slightly OT but i did my first track day at Cadwell Park in 2005 (!) My tyres could have had more tread and it was slippy as hell (particularly under the trees at the hair pin) I survived but 3 laps in an e30 M3 got binned and later an S13 200SX swapped ends on the main straight and written off!

    Odd electrical gremlin

    Adjusters were my issue. Have a look at CD changer too - i seem to recall either leaving it unplugged or it being plugged in cause me some odd symptoms though i'm hazy on that one, it was a long time ago!

    Eibach ARB upgrade kit - E39 touring

    Just done my bushes and you don't need to loosen subframe to do those but i did wonder how you might thread one through though Bentley says remove drop links and clamps, nothing else. The bushes themselves have a split so slip off and on in situ once the clamps are off.

    Eibach ARB upgrade kit - E39 touring

    The kit was used to me too (i just never fitted it and it hung in the garage- i might regret this!) but came with bushes and bars - from research i think that's how they come new utilising existing brackets, bolts and links As above though it is worth looking at what it bolts too as they do add extra load if used to their potential. My e28 broke the upper mount when used hard on track - for that i had a fillet welded in to reinforce and never had the issue again. On the road though i'm sure good condition oe kit would be fine.

    The e34 rear sill thread

    Recognize the breakers, not been there in a while but they where always pretty decent and it was a proper yard where you could have a wander and a rummage. Back in the day they had a couple of nice e28's but got things dumped on the roof

    Making tax digital - what are people doing?

    I'll keep trying but i've tried app on phone, my ipad is too old but tried via safari, tried two browsers and two OS..... Having "googled" seems after care isn't their strong suit... Looking at Excel add ons but that brings its own issues for me as i need to support an older software for work.... Was so easy when i logged in and put my 6 numbers in a box, job done. MTD making things easier? My arse....
