    Piper's E61 520d Touring

    Three E34s and numerous E39s later, I have finally moved on and have got myself an E60/E61. A 2008 black on black on black 520d Touring with a few nice options, but the best one is heated Comforts with ventilation £3800. Picking up Thursday. Pics to follow! Edit - pics below and they ain't Comforts

    E39 facelift sport front bumper- titan silver

    I have one complete but it's currently on my Touring. I'm planning to respray it Oxford Green unless someone finds one for me so I can sell mine and buy it.
  3. The Touring as failed on a weak handbrake. Not surprised it was an advisory on last two MOTs where they adjusted it as much as they can to increase the strength. So, anyone know what I need to do to sort.
  4. Long shot but has anyone got an Oxford Green Sport bumper? Willing to swap for my Titty Silver one!

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    The lies and exaggerations printed about Brexit and Trump have really opened my eyes to the extreme political bias of the media, Inc. Facebook, Twitter, Google. Huge media corps led by globalist leftists intent on censoring conservatism.

    Thanks for that. I might as well get it done. Need to find the part number. I'm going to be keeping this car for years lol

    So have bought these: There is nothing wrong with the new engine as far as I know but I'm still getting the chain done regardless. Total cost so far £1350

    It's a disaster, why the hell did I buy one. Where do you think the fillings came from? Did your chain break?
  11. So yesterday, while having an MOT the compressor decided his life was too much and died. So of course that left Kwik Fit with no option but to fail the car with a dangerous defect. I had to get recovered home...:/ About 15 mins ago I went to move the car and the compressor decided he'd made a mistake and wanted to work again! Anyone got a suggestion as to whats going on? Compressor itself, or relay??
  12. My N47 hates me. Its destroyed itself. So, getting a new engine and going to get the chain replaced in the new engine before it goes back in the bay. What else is a good idea to replace whilst the bare engine is out. Gaskets, bolts?

    Piper's E61 520d Touring

    What mileage? I would get the chain done as a matter of course, just swallow the cost. That's what I wish I had done

    Piper's E39 540i Touring

    Off to London to pick up a new car. A 1999 540i Touring. This is a massive gamble but at £1100 it's worth a punt.

    Yep, going for a rebuild
