  1. The difference between a coach and a bus in the uk anyway is that a coach has no standing allowed whereas a bus does. That is the main classification difference from a dept of transport point of view.

    Lower back pain - m-sport seats

    This has been an interesting topic! One of the reasons I didn’t keep my F11 M-Sport for a long time was due to the seats. Lower right leg pain on longer journeys and lower back ache as well. Never had an issue with seat comfort in any of my previous BMWs but I do think the pedals are too off set to the right. Got a mk6 Golf GTI now and the sports seats and the driving position is excellent in it. Have to also say the quality of the leather and general plastics in the GTI is superior to that found in the F11 so one could say I am not missing it
  3. Those melye hd bushes made my old 530d touring ride so much better with them fitted. Especially combined with an M5 rear arb and polybushes. Also had bilstein b8 shocks. Really nice set up.

    E34 530 manual Touring

    That looks worth saving. Nice colour too.
  5. That would have been some car back in the day! Looks like it’s been off the road for a good while though.
  6. That is a seriously nice e34 touring GLWS

    E60 550i saloon - decent spec

    That looks nice as is! Those alloys really suit the e60 in se spec. I wouldn’t say no to that car.
  8. A bit pricey but nice colour and nicer spec than the silver one too. Nice car though
  9. ^^^ I had an N reg rare Mondeo 4x4 ghia x 5 dr hatch and never had any issues with it running different makes of tyres. I put quite a few miles on that car too carving a rut into the m80 lol commuting between shawlands and Stirling 5 to 6 days a week. Bloody awesome car grip wise and had adjustable dampers too as standard. 2.0l zetec was way underpowered for the weight of the car though.

    Your retro Fords

    No it was personally imported by the owner of the XR8 as he moved back from SA or Oz to Scotland and because my dad’s friend had been involved with Ford for a long time and also support various rally teams too with escorts and Sierras, he knew them inside out. So he restored it back to being a useable rare classic car with original spec etc. He wasn’t a trader in any shape or form.

    Your retro Fords

    Yip! My uncle had a red one back in the day, he had it on Merc 5 spoke alloys with low profile tyres. Need to see if my dad has a pic of it somewhere? It was an awesome car back then

    Your retro Fords

    A friend of my dad’s who was a head Ford tech for many a year restored a Sierra xr8 a few years ago. It’s the only one I have seen. Think the car came from SA? It’s in Dumfries and Galloway somewhere now as a high day and dry day car. my dad had two Granada’s. An x reg 2.3l estate manual and 2.9i Ghia X auto 5 door hatch on an E plate. We also borrowed a family friend’s A reg 2.0l Sierra Estate to go to France in one year and I remember my dad thinking how fast it was and the novelty of a 5spd gearbox too as we had a N plate VW Camper with a 1600cc beetle engine and 4spd box. 60mph down hill with a big tail wind was an achievement in it

    A sad end.

    There was an e39 528i touring like that near my office in Edinburgh which sat like that for about 5 years. Noticed it the other week, all fixed and back in use parked in another near by street! Lol so there might be hope for this one?

    Nice looking 530i Sport saloon.

    Seems quite a sensible price given its condition. Paintwork is nice and shiny and no rust on view either.
  15. Yip they are in south street on the left hand side if you are heading west bound on south st.
