    Excellent mate, £230 is a lot more palatable.

    525/528i AFM

    I know that when I bought one for my 535i some years back I bought it from the US. I found the US supplier a lot cheaper than the UK. The problem is that as you said 528i not sold in the states and the 535i AFM is different to the 528i. I still have my original 535i AFM and thought it might help you but as I said it's different. Sorry mate, Ivor Evans

    Wanted: Coarse spline mtech steering wheel

    Coarse spline examples are quite rare and fetch more money. I thought I saw one on this site a little while back in the parts for sale section.

    Wanted: Coarse spline mtech steering wheel

    I think mine cost around £125 to buy and £125 to re-cover. But that's a long time ago.

    Car mat recommendations? Blue

    Mine had coconut type mats originally as supplied with the car, I ditched them because they were shedding the rubber backing all over the carpet years ago..

    Mick~~~SNAP! Note~it is a matt finish. it's just the very bright sunlight reflected off the uncarpeted boot floor. Notice the roof antenna which carries DAB, FM and AM. I had the rear wing antenna hole sealed up and repainted to eliminate it as a source of water ingress.

    Yes, although the valence has been replaced. Anything I have had to replace on this car has been contemporary correct to the model and OEM if possible.

    Hello Duncan, I bought the old lady back in 1987 on "a private" deal with an acquaintance I had known over the years from a wine bar. The finance was over three years. He kept the log book(I obtained a new one after court decision) In 2000 I was made redundant from my job in Cardiff and subsequently moved to Bristol with my wife to be, THERE WAS ONE PAYMENT LEFT! In all the hubbub of moving, decorating, landscaping gardens, fitting curtain rails etc I omitted to pay the last payment. The car was stolen from my front drive by this acquaintance in the night , I subsequently found it had been hot wired and the steering lock broken. I recovered the vehicle some time after and after suing my "mate"- he liquidated his company so Trading standards advised me that the only way to gain redress was to re-cover the car which I managed in a dawn raid with my wife and my rotweiler. During the time the car was missing the wanker that was driving it around fucked the cam ran it out of coolant and oil. The cheapest way out was to replace the engine...I found engines which were subsequently fitted, a 525 i- U/S, another 525i - U/S, a 528i - U/S. The only thing the vendor had left to exchange under warranty was a 535i out of a "D" reg M535i. After changing gearbox and all other necessary equipment including brakes and suspension, LSD, rear sub-frame etc I pronounced the car as healed. She has taken me all over the country to work and has never let me down! The reg is private and the original reg was A393WRP. Kind regards, Ivor
