  1. Hi guys, looking for a Titan silver bootlid for an 51 reg e39 touring to replace mine which has rusted.. I don’t need the glass.. must be rust free and as close to Manchester as possible.. Regards
  2. Could also be an import and registered in 2011? My evo 6 was registered in 2006 and ended up in a 06 plate.. I thought last build date for the e60 was 2010? I have not seen a e60 on a 2011.

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    I find it strange that people actually think what he said isn’t racist, telling people of colour to “go back to where they came from” would get you sacked from any job in any western country and probably arrested too.. the company i work for sacked a employee for exact same thing word for word. He go into an argument and told a polish national to “go back to where you came from”. He subsequently appealed and went to court for unfair dismissal. In the end common sense prevailed and was found in favour of the company. Trump hasnt actually done nothing for the ordinary Americans except for the top 1%. A lot of people love him because unlike other politicians he says what a lot of people are thinking!! Nancy Polesi summer it up when she said “trump doesn’t want to make America great again” he want to “make America white again”

    Looks really good well done.. a friend end of mine exports few containers full of cars from the uk to Egypt cut in half and then put together.. import tax tax in these counties seems to be crazy and people don’t seem to have any issues buying them aswell.. regards

  14. Hi guys, my my brother went to view a set of style 166 for his m5. They had had the Bmw part number, BMW stamp, made in Germany stamped but did not have a BBS stamp on the back? Am am I correct in thinking they are reps? Although I have never come across any replicas Bmw alloys with the part no. And Bmw stamped on the back? Regards

    20" Style 149 alloys & tyres

    Boiler replacement cost

    Seems a bit dear to me for an ideal logic boiler, not sure how much work is involved or might just be location? Boiler, filter, clock £1100- £1200+ £900-£1000 for fitting?? Few years ago a lot ideal boilers were fitted on government warmfront grants, these seem to suffer from PCB unit failures.. the logic boilers might be better.. My Brothers a gas safe installer and has always recommended baxi/potterton/main brands.. I have 5 of these in my buy to let’s and have had no issues.. vaillaint/viessmann/ Worcester Bosch/ are also good but more expensive. Regards

    Cars holding their value better?

    I too bought an 540i in 2008 and was thinking the same thing.. I also bought 3 immaculate e34 535i for less than £500 each. I belive a lot of cars are being exported especially German brands.. I have sold 3 E39s sport to a guy in Poland all MOT failures, over 250k miles and general in poor condition for £1k each.. if you also look at Copart it’s almost impossible to buy a car there due to oversea bidder..
  18. 2k was my budget, if this was closer maybe I’d have Bidded higher.. would have cost me 300-400 just on transport cost..
  19. I have always wanted a facelift 6 speed touring but prices seem pretty high the ones that have come up for sale. Very intrested in this and as Dan has said would require around 2k to bring it back up to scratch.. would probably have have to sell 1 or 2 of my cars to make room for this.. currently have robs 530d touring Manual (ttrw2) 530d saloon bought from pauliexjr and the 760li bidding is already up2 1500 what do you guys think is a good price for it?

    Air bubbles in fuel lines

    Hi guys, On Tuesday I drove to work and parked up, switched engine off and then tried starting the car 5 mins later, car would not start. It cranks over but did not fire up. I rang the AA and when the mechanic came he started it up with easy start, we then noticed a lot of bubbles in the clear fuel line next to the filter (Filter is 4months old). The AA mechanic thinks I have a air leak somewhere in the pipes. i drove the car to my local garage with AA behind me, car was checked over last couple of days but no fault was found. It now starts fine with no issues but I’m thinking it will happen again, There is still some bubbles in the pipes but not as much as before. Any help will be appreciated. Kind regards

    Air bubbles in fuel lines

    That’s what what I think it could be, the AA guy thought there was a leak in the pipes but the garage has checked and no leaks were found.. Iv got a full tank of fuel so will let it run below 1/4 and see what happens.. is is there anything else that it could be? I just want to eliminate everything, I travel a lot and don’t want to be stranded again.. regards

    Diesel 11p a litre more than petrol

    I used to remember a time when diesel was cheaper than petrol and the government was banging on about how clean diesel was and we should buy diesel car! How times have changed..
  23. They do seem like reps..
  24. Hi Does it need to be a main dealer? You could try Bmw specialist Darren woods in Stockport.. been going there almost 13 years no issues, the mechanics are ex main dealer.. regards
  25. Hi guys went to start the car this morning and herd a bang, power steering went and battery light came on. I have taken the fan off and the belt has come off but one of the pulleys on a bracket has snapped.. Any help would be appreciated.. regards
