    E60/E61 M5 Front Wheel(s) Style 166M

    I’m looking for one or two E60/E61 M5 Style 166M front wheels, tyres not important, does anyone have any they don’t need?

    Wanted - E61 Genuine BMW Rubber Floor Mats

    Does anyone have a set of genuine BMW rubber floor mats for my RHD E61? I have a boot liner but no front or rear footwell mats though. These are NLA from BMW, there seems to be plenty of LHD sets available though!! Thanks

    Modified M1 for auction interesting!

    My comment was based on the market values of M1s and how this one was sold at a relatively low price in comparison. The lighting wasn't great in the auction hall so it was hard to see the details that you have highlighted in your photos taken outside in the daylight. I hope the buyer does something constructive with it.

    I watched it go through the auction at Essen, only reached 135K Euros from memory so a bit of a bargain for someone

    530d/530i M Sport Touring or Saloon wanted

    This doesn't tick many of the boxes on your wish list but it is an E39, a Touring and is in decent condition....... Price shown is very negotiable

    E39 BM54 Unit

    Does anyone have a fully operational BM54 unit to fit my 2000 540i Touring? I sent the BM54 from my car to Cartronics and after testing, its beyond repair unfortunately.

    Sorted now, thank you for all of the replies folks.

    Alpina B10 V8 Touring

    This one is mine I have had a few health issues this year that have affected my ability to get after simpler tasks, instead having to rely on others to help me out. The major stuff is done, it's the smaller DIY niggles that are left, fixes that a new owner might like the satisfaction of repairing themselves. I'm with you here on the interior colour however it's the original one and its in decent condition so I stuck with it. This is my third (and probably last) E39, I just can't love them like my E34s!!
  11. Does anyone have a decent front brake caliper carrier for the drivers side of a 1999 E39 540i, complete with mounting bolts? Thanks

    E9 vs e28...

    Ultimately these two are your cars and you can do as you wish however in my experience, modified cars like your two could become do seem to command lower sale prices and take longer to sell, despite often costing much more to modify than a restoration back to standard does. In mentioning that you are keeping a watch on values, here's an observation to keep in mind for your E9 CSL.....I have been watching E9 prices quite closely over the last 5+ years and CSLs in particular can reach high prices, even restoration project values are shooting up, see the White CSL at ACA that sold for £50K with steel bonnet, non-factory sunroof and was not numbers-matching with regards to engine and chassis. The sale price of this car at the most recent Silverstone auction confused me though - https://www.silverstoneauctions.com/bmw-30csl as I couldn't figure out at first why it sold so low. I have seen this car in the flesh a couple of times and its in great condition so it's non-standard engine must be the reason I think. Ok the full Batmobile dress-up isn't to everyone's taste either but a similar car sold for over £100k not that long ago at another uk auction house, in fact a lesser car albeit numbers-matching sold at the Silverstone Auction in the summer for £77k. The market for "normal" E9 CS's is more of a level playing field between modified and standard cars but it seems buyers like their CSLs to be as original as possible. I hope this helps.

    New project

    Looking great Michael, looking forward to seeing the car MOT'd and fully polished up!
  14. I'm changing the bottom arms on my E32 just now and on one side, two out of the three fine threaded bolts that secure the top/bottom arm & tie-rod plate to the bottom of the strut have been rounded. I can't seem to see these on the Realoem exploded diagrams so would anyone have half a dozen of these bolts they could sell me in decent condition? Thanks

    E34/E32 Strut to Thrust Arm Plate Securing Bolts

    Fantastic WelshPug, thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I'll get some ordered from Cotswold in the morning. Cheers!

    What's your dream e28

    Bucking the trend maybe but my ideal E28 would be a standard mint 525e with as many of the factory option as possible, I wouldn't even be fussy about colour! One day maybe.....

    Gaydon Bmw Festival 2016 ?

    I reckon it looks good Richard, the end result has made all the measuring and cone-dragging worthwhile. I can still remember the distances for the cones that we took from the layout sheet....!

    Bosch AFM 0280203027 Wanted

    Does anyone have a preferably new or known-good used Bosch AFM part number 0280203027 for sale? Alternatively, can anyone recommend where could I get my own AFM repaired/refurbished? Thanks
  19. StevieMillar

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Can you find me a set too please...?

    Bosch AFM 0280203027 Wanted

    The symptoms included hesitation on load and uneven idle, sometimes difficult to get going too. I changed the suspect AFM out with a known good one and the car was transformed so all points to the AFM being faulty. i did watch a couple of vids on YouTube about taking the unit apart, looks straightforward but my clumsy hands would most likely destroy the thing altogether!!

    E34 M5 Genuine M Parallel Wheels

    Does anyone have a set of Genuine E34 M5 18" staggered M Parallel wheels that they would be willing to part with?

    E34 M5 Genuine M Parallel Wheels

    Thanks for the offer Neil, it's much appreciated. The wheels are for an E34 M5 however I would really like genuine E34 M Parallel wheels for it although there are plenty of E38 & E39 ones available just now Thanks for the offer, the car has staggered Throwing Stars on it already. I still have a set of E34 BiTurbo wheels that I could put on as a change but I always thought M5s didn't suit these as much as throwing stars or Style 37's ( just my own opinion of course!) I've had some great advice on this thread and via PM, even including pointers on how/where to get new wheels. I don't think I fully appreciated their rarity and subsequent value to be honest! Thank you to those who have posted. I'll just have to be patient and keep looking for a staggered set. .

    E34 M5 Genuine M Parallel Wheels

    Thank you for the replies, I have been keeping an eye on eBay but just thought I would ask the community if they knew of anything, slim chance but you never know.
