    Insurance (Again!)

    Did exactly this merry dance with Admiral two weeks ago. They insure two of our three cars and this year's quote was £550 (Zafira and BMW). I called them up and after 10 minutes it was back down to £480 !

    Insurance claim advice

    +1 for Admiral as well. Had a multi car policy with them for over 10 years. Two claims in that time (wife's ) were dealt with quickly and efficiently. But what's it coming to when someone can have an accident, but later deny being there?

    Anyone running the M5 lower grill in Sport bumper?

    I just got off the phone to Cotswold. Was initially told that can only be ordered against VIN for an M5 , but after a few minutes the guy 'bucked the system' and said was okay to order without the M5 VIN! Total price with discount, VAT and P&P is £36.31. I could try to persuade Vines to do the same, but because the price is only £4 more through Cotswolds, even with postage (the part is of course discounted as well) I really can't be arsed.

    Anyone running the M5 lower grill in Sport bumper?

    Thanks Dan - just called my local Vines and they quoted £26.77 plus the VAT. How does that compare with Cotswold's price? It comes with clips/fixings too. But, they couldn't order me one because it must be done against an E39 M5 VIN number, so I can't buy one!!! . Bit daft that I think. So, I need to "borrow" a VIN number from a friendly forum E39 M5 owner...

    E39 SOLD

    I think there's a lot to be said to see a car owned and looked after for so many years by one person. Fair price I'd say, GLWTS.

    Which part number is it within your multi part quote e-mail?

    How much from Cotswolds Dan? Should come with all the fittings as well. The ebay link to a grille you sent me a while ago was open all the way across - I think that looks better.

    Planning on doing the conversion on mine as well.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Had my application accepted by Goodwood for their first Breakfast Club meeting of 2020 on 1st March - Vee Power Sunday. Extremely chuffed that I can display on the track's start/finish straight!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Looking good there Jim. Just occurred to me, I sold V42 to you two years ago!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Good point, the V8 chucks out heat for a good few hours after being driven.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Strangely enough, I noticed the same thing this morning. So what's actually happening, a blower/fan/heater's actually been running/blowing overnight whilst the car is shut down and locked up?

    Government to ban ICE by 2035 not 2040

    Ah yes, I recall reading this somewhere.
  17. That's the one, thanks. We went to Tintern Station as well with its preserved station building and collection of old locos and carriages. Many years ago, but a great holiday in the Forest when the kids were younger.

    Breakdown cover

    How much is "quite expensive"? I get cover through the CSMA (Boundless) for our three cars, any driver and cover on other vehicles not owned by us, plus euro cover for the BMW, for £200. Just renewed a couple of days ago.
  19. Looking back two years to February 2018 when I first viewed my 540. I'd gone to look at a white one, but that had been sold just hours before I got there, however the cover was pulled back from my 'car to be' and it was instant 'lurve…'
  20. I think I've been there.... is that near Forest of Dean? Great photo, by the way...

    Government to ban ICE by 2035 not 2040

    When I initially saw the subject title with 'ICE' in it, I really did think what the f*ck..!! Now music in cars will be banned! Thing is, it really wouldn't be that inconceivable for that to happen in our nanny state, would it?
