    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!

    Headliner

    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!

    Disconnecting Battery.

    Yes the alarm has its own seperate power source. Integral in the alarm body.

    Fuel door

    New hinge fixed the problem. On the shelf, so quite a high turn over item!

    Thanks for the info. Will have a look at the CCM. WRT language, all the other warnings are in English so I am a bit confused as to why this is the only one in German

    Started today and Bong" ESD regelt " caption. new one on me, what does it mean? It is followed by brake light circuit. I assume the loom in the tailgate is on its way out and it is causingthe CCM to throw up a warning?
