    Digital dashboards!

    I remember, as a kid, getting a lift to my local slotcar racing club, circa 1980 in a Citroen Pallas, what a god awful dash, might have been LCD, rather than digital though.

    Digital dashboards!

    Does anyone have any strong views one way or another, on the prevalence of digital dashboards on a lot of new or current cars, for me, call me old fashioned, but you cannot beat the old set up of a speedo, rev counter, fuel, and temp gauge, it's progress of a kind I suppose, but are there any real advantages to a digital dash.

    Real men

    +2, and a shame that 4 pots are becoming more prevalent, in favour of the ultra smooth 6 cylinder.

    The price of originality!

    I don't recall any UK cars with that type of steering wheel, also the Reg plate is a private one, has it been imported? Nevertheless, it's immaculate for any E28, never mind an early pre 1985 one.

    6'2ft, and 15.5 stone, maybe it's an age thing, I used to be 12.5st years ago, and the seats alot more comfy then.

    E28 Recaro or bmw sports seats not actually that comfy for a long journey, the bolsters are very pronounced on the seat base and end up squeezing your thighs against your knackers, unless you are petite.

    Shouldn't be too difficult to retro fit a LSD, I would have thought.

    It's a Manual, so even better.

    If the E39 hadn't been invented

    To be fair the Volvo vr70 does have a good stance about it as an estate, almost as though they designed the estate first, then made a saloon out of it. BMW tourings definitely came after the saloon was launched, didn't they just added a bit more metal to a saloon!

    Volvo vr70, bmw touring, what is the attraction of an estate, I don't think they look as good as a saloon in any form?

    E34's were good, I had 2 535i's, superb long distance driving machinery. I don't think they have aged very well though, less so than the E28, even though the E34 was better built.

    Underbody Protection / Corrosion Prevention

    What about Waxol, at least it's clear/ transparent, so you can see whats going on underneath the sealent rustwise, unlike black chassis sealent.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    My money is on somthing catching as the window is lowered, can you wind the window down manually, you would then know.

    Surprised the HGV didn't come off worse Dan, they just look so bloody well made, almost a panzer like build quality.(looks can be deceiving)! Did yours come with style 32's or did you add them they also suit an E39 very well, if it's a dechromed version.

    If the E39 hadn't been invented

    I would probably have gone for something like this E38, in a good colour, and suiting it's style 32's to a T. Has twin exhaust so maybe it's a 750?
