    BWM key holder

    Hi there Can you quote for the key holder please? Part number: 82292219914. I looked this up and different colours come up. The colour I need is: black and silver (the car is Mineral Silver). If this is not available all black (82292219911) would also work. I am not interested in brown holder. I would like to get it this week if possible? I also have other question - I will send you a PM about it. Thanks Greg

    Cat C cars

    As these seem to be the same wheels and tyres that the OP bought after buying the car I would presume this has been the second time this has been damaged. This in its own right is not a massive problem but if you add everything up... it just doesn't add up. Two shunts, 11 owners and too high of a price for Cat C. Walk away.

    Just so there is no ambiguity please see the file attached. The one in green is my preferred option blue are secondary choices if green is not available for any reason. Thanks Greg

    Cat C cars

    The last four cars I bought for my Mrs were write offs. Three were Cat Cs under three years of age and one, the latest one is a Cat N (used to be Cat D) but is six years old. All of these were under 40k miles and some as low as 1k miles. None of them had any other structural damage than a bent front bumper support. They needed wing or two, bonnets, head lights, some needed rads. One needed just a wing and a headlamp (obv the Cat N). I kept all of them for two or more years. Depending on the car I did between 10 and 30k miles in that time. I had them tracked after each repair, they came up perfectly straight, no unusual tyre wear etc. Always got close to 100% of my money back what I see as a great result. Yes 8/10 people will turn their noses on these but if you have a good add, good maintenance history and if you have kept it for long enough after the repair - it will sell. I normally list my cars at -20% price level of a non Cat vehicle. Sites like Copart can be a good source but here you are on your own. Good sellers on ebay with good feedback will give you a little more peace of mind but prices will/may be higher. When we (we ;-) bought our first salvage, my Mrs, she was more than a little apprehensive. Negative or scarred would be more adequate words to describe how she felt about it. Now days she sends me pictures /links of salvaged cars with assessment of parts that would be needed to repair them. This is how much the situation changed. This does not mean you should not be careful when buying a salvage. If you are careful you can get a good car at a good price (maybe a great car at a great price). To me its all about having a reliable new-ish car that will not cost anything stupid (£'000) a month and will not depreciate like crazy. In this case as Duncan mentioned "£3250 doesn't seem cheap enough when a quick ebay search shows £3500 gets a non - cat C". Up to Sub 3k would seem the right spot for me. 3k if the condition/mileage was exceptional.

    Rear number plate lights

    Have you got colour coded handles in stock? I need both fittings and if these only come with the entire handle this is what I need. If so how much would it be? Thanks Greg

    Rear number plate lights

    Hi, I need the light fittings/lenses I should be fine for bulbs but if these come as sets I could go for that too. I will need a couple. Thanks
  12. The time has come to part ways with our trusted BMW. This pretty lady has been loved and during the last year or two I have replaced the following: - shock absorbers all around - springs all around - top mounts - front brake pads - richbrook mats - sh head unit - recovered the steering wheel - 4x15mm bilstein spacers - new extended bolts - various bulbs and other consumables - she was serviced approx 4K miles ago. She comes with a silver on black interior with sport steering wheel. sport cloth seats and glass sunroof. The previous owner fitted a short shifter which makes a great improvement in gear changes. Front and rear parking sensors, style 81 alloys and pretty much complete tool kit are both a plus. The light adjusters are broken so this will need to be looked at plus the paintwork is starting to show her age. In general she drives as nice as cars with a lot less mileage. I took her to Europe more times that I can remember and she has never failed me. Hence the mileage of 179k. She has been remaped and she pulls really well. I think I have a printout saying 217bhp. Originally I bought it off a forum member, sold it to my best friend who loved her. He then sold it onto another friend who then thankfully sold it back to me. I hope it will find its way to another forum member as it is a great car and really enjoyed owning her twice. I believe the price is very fair/quite low but this does not reflect the overall condition. I have purchased the replacement already this means she needs to go. £1250 Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Alpina B10 V8 n. 755

    This would be a perfect daily if the money was no object. V8 e39 with an auto box. She is a stunner. I hope you will change your mind as she deserves an attentive owner. Greg

    2001 BMW e39 525d manual £1250 - SOLD

    Thank you. Yes she proved herself and with 45mpg and over on motorway runs I cannot imagine a cruiser that would offer better quality for money! Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I've just sent you a PM. Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. What about a nice e39? 525d, manual? It looks like I will be selling mine in a week or two. I've owned it twice, I sold it to a mate who then sold it to another mate before I bought it back. I bought it from a forum member in the first place so effectively I know last 4 owners and I have known this car for some years. Now it's a mortgage time... Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Breaking Various E39s

    I am looking for a steering pump and a head unit for a facelift 39 diesel. Can you help at all?

    SOLD: E39 15mm Eibach Spacers x 4

    Do you still have these? Thnaks
  20. Great stuff. I'm definitely interested. I'd rather an oem head unit myslef but this seems to be too good not to try. have you got any paperwork with it? thanks g.
  21. Why are you selling? I am after a head unit as mine seems to have lost the amplifier and only one side speakers work. Would it work with a facelift? How does the face compare to the OEM unit's face quality wise? Is the illumination colour same/similar to the OEM equipment? Finally, how difficult is it to fit? Thanks Greg
