    What's a set of E39 19" alpinas worth these days

    Thanks guys makes sense I guess as to why those on eBay have been for sale for so long. I noticed they sold but were relisted as well so they're obviously struggling to shift them. Et24 and et30 on these. I think I'll hang onto them for now whilst deciding what to do long term. Getting hard to find unless spending 3k on a new set as you mentioned.
  2. As in the title, they've come on a car I've purchased and not sure whether to refurb and keep them or shift them on as they are. Painted black in the centres and keys for the center caps need sourcing. The caps are removed for now. If keeping I would be refurbing them all and sort the locks out. Staggered and with alpina stamps and part numbers. Theres a set of 5 on ebay for strong money but otherwise I havent seen a set of these come up for a long time.

    Breaking a 2007 525d, would have thought the panel should be the same. The one that runs underneath the Passenger side?

    Breaking a 2005 E61 530d SE Touring

    Unable to post pics on here still but description is below. Feel free to PM me with a contact number and I can send pics via WhatsApp. 2005 BMW E61 530d SE Touring. Black (colour code not known) Natur Brown Leather Seats. Manual 6 speed. 150k miles. 17" rims with runflats 3mm tread. I've listed the bare doors, bumpers and bonnet on individual 7 day ebay auctions as the space is needed.

    2006 BMW E60 530d Sport £2000

    This arrived yesterday from a friend who's had it around 6 years with 3 previous keepers. He does a lot of motorway driving so the mileage is 195k. Still has an Mot until towards the end of this year. Just putting feelers out on here if anyone is after one of these. It actually drives fine with no warning lights. Interior and exterior is in very good condition. Typical pre LCI sport model, sport bumpers, black leather seats, headlining, 18" Mv2 alloys etc. I'm in 2 minds whether to break it or not as it's probably worth the same in parts as it is on the road and there's no reason it needs to be stripped. Still having issues uploading pictures on here so feel free to send me a pm with a contact number and I can send plenty of pictures over whatsapp etc.

    Dewalt Impact Driver - cheap as chips on eBay

    I second that..I recently picked up a dewalt drill, impact driver and the wrench in seperate deals but all have been solid purchases and probably do more than what I expected they would

    +2 Its scary how quick this is accelerating. Sad news Anil. Where I live in Willenhall about 20 mins from Brum, its taken around over a week for a lot of people to get this lockdown idea into their heads. I worry about the knock on effects of that and whats to come.

    E38 4 Pot Brake Adapters

    The fronts on these are 4 pot from memory so I guess it just depends whats needed. I had a quick check on ebay and they seem to be popular for E30 and Sierra upgrades too.

    Breakdown cover

    After reading the above posts and realising I actually didnt have any cover I have just decided to use Autoaid and for £60 I really dont think there can be any complaints. As mentioned it covers the wife and any car either of us are in. Hopefully I wont have to use it but will see how I get on if/when needed. Way cheaper than my previous Greenflag and AA policies in recent years.

    Expensive private registration plates on BMWs

    Theres a newish looking range rover I see on the morning school runs by me (ok not a BMW) but the plate is M8. I reckon thats worth 6 figures

    wanted- roof bars for E39

    hi iv'e got a set of genuine Thule ones I bought off a forum member years ago for my E39 saloon but never used! I don't think they're complete now though. Not looking for much for them and I think postage is do able so depends if you'd rather have a complete kit or not.
  22. Currently on eBay but happy to take a reduction if selling to a forum member. Would do £100 posted as a PayPal gift. EBay item number is 253864014608.
  23. As mentioned, this car is currently being stripped. I had it for sale complete for a while with no takers so decided to break it instead. Engine has 150k miles but runs sweet. Gearbox etc all seem fine. Roof not working and all 4 arches need repainting. Black electric memory leathers. Sport front bumper but it is not a proper sport car.
