    E28 Complete Beige Interior Set

    For Sale a full Interior set minus the door card inserts for a BMW E28 M535i They don't come much better that this the main carpet is in super condition for its age no burn marks or stains, no tears or holes. The drivers heel pad is perfect. The bench seat upstand is perfect, the front footwell inserts are clean with no signs of wear. the only imperfection are the two small heater outlet covers under the dash to the back of the console, they have aged. The set also comes with a centre console, the handbrake surround, drivers side knee roll and glove box. There is also a full set of BMW mats however the heel pad is off the drivers side mat but that's an easy fix. If the buyer wants card inserts made for the doors I can make them as an additional item. Collection preferred but I can arrange a courier at cost, in addition I have no problem meeting along the M4 as far as the Cardiff area, it will be a spin out. There won't be a better chance to buy an interior like this or as complete, already cleaned and in good condition, you can take your chance at the breakers but they don't really care about condition or what it looks like, so grab a bargain £500 £400

    528i won't start

    Two reasons To see if the flow stops or the return is blocked and stalls the flow

    528i won't start

    Have you tried starting the car with the return off?

    528i won't start

    As Dunc said check the earths first but I suspect they are fine The injectors are obviously working because the car starts so is this a control fault? Unplug the ECU and check for corrosion on the pins and plug Try disconnecting the fuel return and run it into a can, don't block it off its not meant to be blocked and see if it runs then is it an auto?

    Drivers Side Sound Deadening Needed

    Hey Buddy, I though I would finish my story, so the first few pictures are the disaster that follows designing a clutch cylinder that lives inside the cabin, what a genius! Next is decontamination and clean up Then there is a picture of the cylinders, the black one is mine the other is the only one available under £300 when in stock which its not, it went to the machine shop to remove 40mm and re-tap the end Then there is a raid on the stockpile because I'm full on at this point and the lot is coming out for another colour. Followed by a days cleaning and floor painting Then making my own insulation before putting what's outside back inside and finally f@@k it..... into the Attic to the unicon poo stores and dig out a change the seats its like having a new car lol !! enjoy!
