    Front jacking points

    Got an advisory on the MOT for the front jacking points. On the premise that "a stitch in time etc" What sort of ball park figure for a good fix? I appreciate it depends on the level of corrosion but what should I expect from a non franchised body shop. Thanks

    Got an advisory on the MOT about high CO at idle. Not come across this before on the M50, any ideas aas to what to do to lower the CO level?

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Got rid of the dreadful window radio aerial. Replaced it with a proper bolted through the roof job. 100%improvement in radio reception.

    WTB single 14" FPS wheel

    As per title, I ungently need a 14" alloy for an e3. A 20 spoke FPS would be ideal. S Manchester location. can collect within reason

    Wiper Rack

    Seem to recall a conversation with a retired BM service manager. He said the problem of wiper/ bonnet conflict was not a new one In the day the way to fix it was by putting a piece of 4x2 on the scuttle and bending the bonnet slightly over the wood. Problem solved!

    The headliner cloth covering has started to separate and sag. What is the best way of re-attaching?

    Changing the wiper rack is a complete PITA, and getting hold of one that is not knackered is another!

    Should i buy a an E34? Whats it worth?

    I wolud agree with the previous comments. Definitely worth a punt. Is it an se with (working) aircon then whats not to like. Not as fast or indeed as frugal as the 525 but a manual is a bonus as nothing to go wrong in the transmission dept. A leather interior is very nice but the headlining will sag at some stage. The black roof bars will look awful but from the pic it seems to have the cross pieces. Nice and desireable. Red does tend to suffer more with lacquer peel/fade than other colours. The pundits say the e34 is the last BM built before the penny pinchers took over. Go on you know it makes sense!
