    Hi Dennis I am near Heathrow too. I have seen some very inconsistent work and I would just like to get them done right first time.

    Wheel Refurb

    Can anybody recommend someone who can refurb my softlines to original spec please? (full treatment, dipped etc) I last got a set done years and years ago through a firm called Montys in Iver but I cant remember where they sent them. Thanks in advance

    530d Turbo Upgrade

    Thanks, I have got the manifold from a late e46, seems to be the same part number as the e60 one, do you think it will work?

    530d Turbo Upgrade

    I need some help please. I have tried fitting a GT2260 turbo to my 184 530d and I am having clearance issues with the engine mount. I can see that the later cars (mine is an early car) have different part numbers for the engine mount brackets, will this solve the problem? Has anyone else encountered this and what has been the solution please? Thanks in advance

    530D Jealousy

    Some are quieter than others, I have had a Lexus owner and Audi TDi owner in mine who were both surprised mine was a diesel whereas there is no mistaking the fact my mates 535d is a diesel. Maybe the brand of oil or how it was run in has something to do with it.

    e38 or e39 Servo & Master Cylinder please

    Hi I believe the DSC equipped master cylinders have 3 outlets. I also need a passenger door in Aspen silver for a facelift e38 and a front bumper trim where the washer jet sits for the driver side in Orient blue please? Thanks
