  1. Can anyone recommend a HPI check that actually gives detail as to how a car is written off. I know it was written off as a cat C but i want to know the exact nature of the damage. I was disappointed to find the RAC one only told me what I already know. It was written off as a cat C. Thanks in advance.
  2. do you still have a E34 535I SPORT MANUAL for sale ?

      I am, it’s my business. Just curious as I hadn’t advertised the car on here but if you found the website then that explains it. 


      Its a really nice example. I’ve had all the body kit off and apart from a small welding repair we had to do to the NSF wing the sills are in perfect condition. 


      Best thing is for you to give me a call if you want to discuss the car. 




      Cheers Steve

    535i non start (fuel injectors not firing)

    Thought I would report back on this for anyone who is reading this thread in the future (so frustrating when people don't say how they fixed things lol) After chasing just about everything I arrived back at the fuel pump. I fitted one from a running car and hey presto it fired straight up. Obviously there is something that the ECU needs to see from the pump to fire the injectors.

    535i non start (fuel injectors not firing)

    I have hooked up a high pressure pump from an E28 which is capable of producing 5 bar so that should counteract the fuel pressure argument shouldn’t it? I will check for continuity between the DME and the injectors. Does anyone know off hand which wires these are? I will also swap the FPR out for another one. What is the ECU injector driver, and where is it located please M635uk?
  6. E34 535i auto won’t start. Interesting symptoms on this non start. Good battery, turning over fine and getting a good spark but no fuel. Tested pump and found it to be good. I can jump it and it will run. The main relay clicks and I get fuel up to the rail with the fuel pump relay jumped but the fuel injectors won’t run. Plugs are dry. I have swapped out my fuel pump relay and DME relay which has created no change. I swapped the CPS despite having spark, still no change. I tried a different ECU/DME control unit. I did not have the matching 179 unit so tried a 150 from a E32 735i but no change. I realise it could still be the ECU but this seems unlikely as I have spark. What am I missing? Any ideas/advice greatly received. Thanks in advance

    E39 touring on gas/LPG

    A good friend of mine is looking for and E39 touring that has already been converted to LPG with a spare wheel tank. He’d rather have a manual but it’s not a deal breaker and I think he’d consider a 520, 523, 525 or 528. If if anyone knows of anything that fits the bill, please let me know. Idealy somsthing with an MOT but he’s not afraid of doing a little work either.
  8. Thanks to all for your responses. I’m home now so thought i’d update a little. I have discovered that the black plastic joiner block wherethe air lines join just outside of the compressor housing had a stripped thread and it was allowing air to leak out depending on the pressure applied to the lines. Whilst this may prove to have nothing to do with what I experienced it is never the less faulty. I had a spare compressor with the black plastic bit attached so i’ve Swapped that out. The bags hold air and will hold air for days on end but the car still try’s to pump itself up to the maximum height. I have removed the fuse for now in order to stop it pumping itself up to the maximum height. Planning to investigate the load sensors tomorrow. On the basis they are both doing doing the same thing I wonder if the fellow above saying they could be stuck is right. When hitching yo the caravan it may have pumped itself up to a part of the travel the sensors haven’t experienced in some time.
  9. Went out to it yesterday to get something. Unlocked it and it sprang into life. It aised itself to normal ride height. Went out to it again a few minutes later, opened the door and it raised itself again this time as far as it’s able to. It now looks like a monster truck at the back. It has maintained its altitude and every time it’s unlocked the compressorsruns for a minute or so. I guess this would suggest the ride height sensors have had it.
  10. Hi, No caravan detached. It’s not doing anything and as I said when I bridged the relay the compressor ran but had no affect on the height of the car.
  11. Correct, we where towing a caravan and based on the tow I believe the suspension was functioning until we arrived at the campsite. After being g switched off for 5-10mins both sides have sunk completely. As we pulled into our pitch I scraped every speed bump along the way non of which where particularly high so the car is as low as it will drop in both sides.
  12. Hi all, towedour caravan down to Wells in Somerset yesterday. The tow Dow was absolutely fine. Pulled up outside the campsite office to book in. Went back to the car and the rear suspension won’t raise. It doesn’t even fire. I have recently replaced the control module and when I unplug and plug this back in the compressor twitches but won’t run so I assume that working. I brushed the relay and made the compressor run but it won’t pump up the car. I have limited tools and the ground is not appropriate for jacking with the factory supplied jack. My question is if I can bridge the relay and make the compressor run, why isn’t it pumping up at all. Does this indicate a bag has gone? I haven not identify an airleak whilst yhe compresoor is running. any help would be much appreciated.

    M535I Project

    Looks good if I do say so myself. Hopefully finish up the front and rear windscreen surrounds this week providing we can get into the boot and then the car is off to paint a week today.

    Wanted Brown dash

    I know, I know, not likely! I am after a crack free or very good brown Dash for a very cool 525e I’ve just bought in gazzel biege. Its low millage, has fantastic seats and is pretty straight underneath but the Dash is badly cracked. i know brown dashes are hard to come by so I will accept small cracks around the demister vents if the price is reasonable.

    E28 Alpine white panels

    Hi all, I am looking for a bonnet, a pair of front wings and a front nearside door in Alpine white. Must be rust free but don't mind having to do touch ups or paint odd bits. I'm in no rush so please commit this to your memory and get in touch if you spot something in the future. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
