    Any alive or dead really Dunc. Good to see the old 520i is still fighting on

    Tracking down my old e28

    No, probably not Ivor. It was based on those who made contact and some that I knew of already, the previous incumbent had nothing to pass on and it's far from extensive ! But any details are welcome, drop me an email mate. I have model, exterior and interior colour, chassis number, reg number, owner and some notes on them.

    Hi Rich, I may be able to help as I look after the register for the car club, but would need a little more info. Reg no, chassis no etc would help. Cheers, Mark

    Nice one Pete Wow that is a blast from the past. My car in the pic is the E39 Touring YE51 MGO. The M535i is a black automatic that Oxo was hoping to buy once if I recall correctly !

    What have you done on your E28 this week........

    Thanks Yes I had been driving past that road a few times and thought it would be good for a piccy ! These will be a lot easier to clean

    So tried these 17" Hartge rims on for size this week. I have had them for a while but not got around to trying them on the car, they were always one of my favourite rims. But I still think the Borbets edge it

    M535 values ?

    Hi, they are tricky to value as always. Nothing but scrap these days under 4k. Poorer examples seem to start around 5K. Good cars 8-12k and excellent up to around 15-18k. There are a few chancing their arm at higher figures but none seem to sell. As an example (albeit an odd one) a low mileage car (40k I think) sold at auction for around 23k last year and that needed paintwork doing.

    Beige interior. Convince me!

    That looks great with the black carpet etc Paddy. That's a bit like what I did with the M535i, black carpets trims and dash with light seats. I like the contrast Not sure I would have gone beige if it was my daily driver though ! Topaz with Beige should look nice if it's in decent condition.

    Buying an X5 - any advice if you own/ owned one?

    That was around town to be fair, but it did like a drink

    I was invited to go to Bicester but there is really good meet on my doorstep the same day.

    Buying an X5 - any advice if you own/ owned one?

    I had a 2004 4.4 Sport and I loved it. Only sold it due to needing a seven seater, as said they drive very much like a raised E39, fuel consumption was around 19mpg if you drove like the clergy but it was a superb mile muncher.
