    Weapon! Love it
  2. Hi Guys Haven't been on for a while but thought I should share this. Very good friend of mine has (had) a Lovely F10 M5 and last night on his drive it got broken in too and had almost all the electronics stolen from it along with interior items It wasn't a have a go hero, it was clearly organised and according to the police they hit 3 F10s last night in his area (Kent) but its a widening issue. First, they covered the movement sensor on the floodlights, then the CCTV camera! Cut a hole in the front bumper and filled the alarm siren with expanding foam, along with cutting the wires to it. They also filled a compartment behind the rear wheel with expanding foam, then drilled into the driver's door and gained access. Once inside they stole all the electronics, screens and M Interior bits. This was done on his driveway, in a built-up neighborhood Forensics where on site within 20 mins as they were taking samples from another car locally.
  3. Well the insurance firm has agreed to repair the car. The estimate is 22k worth of damage!!
  4. More reports surfacing. This one was from the 5th Exactly the same mo Not and f10 this time. Please all be extra vigilant
  5. I have checked with the owner, some are OK, others are not - it seems they too care with the bits that where being removed at the expense of the bits they didn't want Over 30 reported incidents in the last two weeks on Kent now not just f10's but the latest range rovers and anything newish from bmw
  6. They kept the bits they wanted neat and tidy, ripped and cut the car loom to bits sadly
  7. I expect the police will be doing that Apparently they did 3 cars in one night
  8. I think it might be, it's a mega low mileage example so it will be close

  11. That's what I thought too! They are not however on closer inspection they are all clearly different cars Prices are keen, not quite 4 Star classics keen mind you.
  12. Why is she going? Looks like a fine example
  13. Eat better and move more as its already been said time over - I walk a lot these days (mostly around a golf course) and the unwanted weight is coming off and my fitness is improving all the time.

    Cordless Power Tools recommendations please!

    For DIY like above anything from the above is fine or better For professional Makita and HILTI are the way forward but if your budget doesn't stretch that far the high-end DeWalt and Bosch are also good

    Which 3 cars - lottery win

    They should want one. It is quite simply a master piece of a car - excuse my poor pictures I was a little excited to see it

    Which 3 cars - lottery win

    Oddly i know the guy with the low drag GT, he's a client of mine and his garage is very similar to your list, just a bit larger!! Great choice - TBH I would be hard pressed to beat it but there is no practical car their

    Imported m5

    My E39 was classed as an Import - Makes no difference whats so ever to the value of cars now. Back in those days you could save a lot buying from mainland and personally bringing the car over

    Funny Jokes - Good Old Paddy

    Bloke at a horse race whispers to Paddy next to him, "Do you want the winner of the next race?" Paddy replies "No tanks, oi've only got a small yard." A coach load of paddies on a mystery tour decided to run a sweepstake to guess where they were going..... The driver won £52. Paddy finds a sandwich with two wires stickin out of it. He phones the police and says "Bejasus, I've just found a sandwich dat looks like a bomb." The operator asks, "is it tickin? Paddy says "No, OI tink it's beef" Joe says to Paddy: "Close your curtains the next time you're making love to your wife. The whole street was watching and laughing at you yesterday." Paddy says: "Well the joke's on them because I wasn't even at home yesterday" The Irish have solved their own fuel problems. They imported 50 million tonnes of sand from the Arabs and they're going to drill for their own oil... Paddy says to Mick - I'm ready for a holiday, only this year I'm going to do it a bit different. 3 years ago, I went to Spain and Mary got pregnant. 2 years ago I went to Italy and Mary got pregnant. Last year, I went to Majorca and Mary got pregnant." Mick asks - So what are you going to do this year?." Paddy replies, - I'll take her with me!" Paddy says to Mick, "Christmas is on a Friday this year" Mick says "Let's hope it's not the 13th." Paddy's in the bathroom and Murphy shouts to him. "Did you find the shampoo?" Paddy says, "Oi did, but it's for dry hair and I've just wet mine."

    Oh fek, here I go again!

    really sorry to hear the rubbish news Your run over the last few years hasn't been kind. Especially for a man who was with his last firm for 7 years. Have you considered asking the old 7-year firm if they are interested in working with you again or has that ship sailed
