    water water everywhere!

    despite battling with a leaky boot seal and trying to avoid replacing said boot seal untill my car is painted im having trouble with rainwater getting inside the cabin. i know weve had a lot of rain but the other morning i was greeted by an inch of water in the back seat (drivers side) footwell and im completly at a loss to how it got there. ive had the car over a year and this has never happened before and the car is always parked in the same place it always has on our drive. is it possible for rainwater to enter the boot via the leaky seal and trickle into the cabin and accumulate in the lowest place which is the footwell? if so why has itnever happened before? Also the bit of carpet at the base of the pedals seems to be perminately wet and ive had a really good poke around underneath and there is no holes inthe floor this has me really stumped and im now watching the weather forecasts a lot more closely than iwant to!! has anyone else has this problem and how did you solve it?

    Clutch kit anyone?

    the guy has 1.3 million seperate items for sale and the whole thing is automated, as tref has pointed out 3rd party software automatically increases the price by aprox a thousand percent so it holds its place in ebay ranking system until stock is available and then the price automatically falls to the correct level so that some one might actually buy one! some big companies are into ebay now ( including BMW) and this is pushing smaller companies like mine by the wayside, hope this helps

    the car was indeed sold by LJK garages ltd in essex the sales executive whose card is still in the wallet is Russell Jaques. does this name sound familiar? do you have any other info about my car or a picture by any chance? thanks
  5. not mine im sorry to say but a better example ive yet to see and seems to be VERY good value for money. Tot up a decent engine rebuild and a paint job and that leather.... and mine starts to look very poor value http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1987-BMW-M535i-E28-restored-classic-not-too-many-left-now-/130694739476?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item1e6e037614#ht_2322wt_99

    1982 e28 528i manual in white - anyone know it?

    Ive also got a sunroof wind deflector! i did't realise they were sought after? could'nt agree more on the tax thing though a rolling 25/ 30 years would make way more sense . wasn't it originally supposed to be a rolling scheme but the government (at the time) was shocked by the sheer amount of older vehicles signing up for the historic class and pulled the rug from under our feet at the thought of losing all that revenue? so its fixed at up to 1972 (i think) which in my opinion makes a car more desirable than a similar car from 1973 (or 4) onwards because of the extra expense. Cheap classic insurance and free road tax means you can always add another car or two to your collection without braking the bank and im all for that!

    The arch trimming guide was indeed useful Jonah, after taking the car out on the road properly there was some slight rubbing !! however as the chrome arches have done an excellent job of rotting the original arches underneath it was easy enough to grind them down (read crumble in my hands!) to a more roomy size. i then bent over the edge of the chrome arches to a smooth lip using a vice and a small hammer before refitting so no sharp edges are able to cut the tyres or to fail the MOT. Incidently the arches must be stainless steel ( or titanium or something! ) as they are in PERFECT condition with not one mark on them despite crumbling the arches they are attached to! when the car is to be repainted (in the original henna red by the way kingludba) i will have the new arches properly rolled to accomodate these wide wheels and tyres.

    Despite me keeping the car in the dry all winter and bringing her back out of hibernation last week, it was MOT day today and i had to drive there in SNOW!! (first and last time hopefully) Any way ive owned this car for almost a year now and this is the first MOT ive taken the car for, usual sweaty palms and anxiety whilst you pace up and down the waiting room looking through the glass while some grease monkey prods and pokes your beloved! The car only failed on one small issue of the back brakes binding and easily rectified by a stripdown and rebuild of the bloody inboard handbrake. I used to have a mk 2 golf GTI and every MOT the car failed on the same thing as the back discs don't really do any work and seize up through lack of use. has any one else had this problem and will upgrading the brakes from an E34 solve this issue? On a more positive note im pleasantly surprised that this was the only issue on this car and maybe she's in better nick than i give her credit for. i must thank the last owner for that really has he had the car for about 12 years. cheers for now Polymoog

    came to heath once last year and was dissapointed by the lack of elderly bm's in attendance. i was hoping to pick the brains of another E28 owner but were told there wasn't any, is that still the case? there was a lovely old seven owned by a kind gent but all the rest were much too modern for my liking. Newer cars just don't do it for me ( no offence to other members) cheers polyrmoog

    i have 235, 40 tyres on the back and the arches aren't rolled and there is not much of a gap! as the back arches are mainly filler anyway i thought i might have a go at them with a power file and see if i can get a bit more of a gap happening. well done hippie dave for having the guts to speak your mind about the chrome arches. truth be told i don't mind em either but they have to go as i can see the rust trap they have created. when i take them off i will send them to you if you like them that much!! cheers polymoog

    Good afternoon one and all sorry for not posting for some time as life and work gets in the way of toys and play! bin lurking plenty though keeping my eye on the forum and commenting on the odd thread here and there, Any way to bring you up to date, not much has happened, the car has been stored all winter waiting ...... I was supposed to be stripping and rebuilding it this winter but that plan has now changed and ill be doing her bit by bit as i keep her on the road. Plan now is to get the rest of the parts i need and book her in to a bodyshop at the end of this summer, get the arches and that done, repaint and back on the road NEXT year, but in the mean time there will be plenty of updates as the project moves forward. i have managed to fit the stainless exhaust and it sounds amazing really makes the car come alive, ive also had some tyres fitted to the 17" alpina's i bought and they are now on the car. They also look great but im not sure if they will rub on the back yet as ive only driven it on the industrial estate where i work, Im too tight to tax it for the road until the weekend comes so i can have it start April - Oct expect many more updates now we've both come out of hibernation and in the meantime some more eye candy! Many thanks Polymoog
