    Family cars. Talk to me

    Aren't these all 7 seaters? They're big van like but 2 big lads will struggle in the back with the third row of seats. How about a skoda superb?
  3. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1080763 This is lovely, ignoring the M badge on the rear. Had £28k spent on it 20k miles ago!

    Goodbye and thank you

    I hadn't come across that model of Renault so googled images. It's a fine looking car, good luck with it.
  5. Welcome. That's a lovely M5 in great condition. What are your plans for it?
  6. Never seen a V12 BMW with a manual gearbox https://oldcolonelcars.co.uk/listing/bmw-e31-8-series-850-v12-6-speed-manual/

    Now THIS is how a 7 should be done...

    Looks nice but expensive with those miles on it. Rear passenger side door is a different shade.
  8. Never knew these were available in manual https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1051506 It seems in good nick and well priced.
  9. We all know they do tyres but they also do puncture repairs for a very reasonable £8.40 which I only found out recently

    E65 730D - New battery needed

    Another vote for Yuasa batteries, had one on my e34. There's a thread on a forum where a battery geek compares one against a Bosch (I forget which Bosch) and Varta and it comes on top. If you're a Costco member pick up a Bosch battery from there. They're the most competitively priced and if you have any problems they'll swap it over for a new one.
  11. Hi, I have a favour to ask of our friends in Scotland, someone near Cupar, Fife. I am looking to purchase some roof bars from someone in Cupar, Fife but they will not post, they will deliver locally however. Would you be kind enough to take delivery of it for me to then arrange a courier? You will need to package it up, its a big ask I know. Much appreciated. Thanks

    E39 525d Sport

    low miles this one from the same seller as the Imola red 535i ... https://www.gumtree.com/p/bmw/bmw-5-series-2.5-525d-sport-4dr-2003-03-/1316240811
  13. £2,695 but big miles, hides it well https://www.gumtree.com/p/bmw/bmw-5-series-3.5-535i-sport-4dr-2001-x-/1316244371

    Winter tyres - it's that time of year!

    Look up Michelin Cross Climate all season tyres, I have them on mine been great in the dry and and are supposed to be great through the winter too. All the tyre you'll ever need.
  15. Loaded an old Peugeot full of rubbish for a visit to the tip. Hatch lid wouldn't shut, not a problem I'll tie it down. Got to the tip which has a height restriction barrier. Forgot about my open hatch, big dent on boot. Feck. Another time on a corrado, picked up some wipers and screen wash for it. Thought I'd top up fluid and change wipers in the car park and in the rain. Did the screen wash first, closed the bonnet and started on the wipers. Whipped the old wiper off, wiper arm still in the air the gf sitting in the car shouts steam is coming from under the bonnet. I panic pop the bonnet open which strikes the wiper arm which cracks the screen. Feck. The steam was from rain hitting the engine when the bonnet was open.
