    E60, LHD headlights

    Hi Mr G, Thanks for that will look into it. The car will be living in France so will need the relevant mot and therefore correct lights within 12months (ish). So if the glass is missing the correct markings it won’t pass the test. Cheers Boots

    E60, LHD headlights

    Hi All, 2007, E60, 520d. Need to sort the car with a set of lhd headlights for France. Looking at finding a set of used at the best possible price (cheap) or a set of glass to swap over if that’s a working option. Will be checking all the usual places but looking to the ‘hive’ mind for pointers/ideas etc. Cheers Boots

    As above, for France pair headlights or glass to convert RhD to LhD lights. Cheers Boots

    7-seat MPV views and opinions

    Evening Mr V, I’m now running an Smax seven seater, 2ltr diesel, automatic, no problems, good vehicle, large load carrying capacity, easy seats down to create the load area. Well worth a look. Boots

    Hi All, Time to sell my car due to the purchase of something more suitable, price now reduced as it’s sat on the drive unused and that’s not ideal! BMW 520d SE. 4 Door. Automatic. Basic Information. Paint Colour. Olivin Metallic 349. Interior Colour. Stoff Fluid/Beige 3 (Alba). Beige trim and cloth. Wheels. Sq set 69s. Tires. Mid range, F 3+mm, R 7mm. Spare wheel. Full set of space saver wheel, jack tools etc. Owned from. 04.02.16. Built. 11.04.06. Registered. 01.05.06. M.O.T. 24.10.18. Mileage. 91k. Key Fobs. 2 in working order. Documents.

MPG has dropped below the usual 40/42. Air con. I never use it. It wasn’t ice cold when I checked. In my ownership oil change every 5k with filter change every 10k, due oil/filter in 2k approx. Bodywork. Paint is (olivine metallic 349) a very pale metallic green that depending on the weather conditions can look bronze(ish), grey/silver(ish) like having a new paint job every other day! Some stone chip marks and the odd car park dent. Boot lid lip has a rust scab ¼ x 1”(ish) that has been touched up in the past and could do with attention soon. Fitted with Front mud flaps, excellent in rural areas. Fitted with Black kidney grills, original silver ones supplied with the car. All doors & the boot work on the remotes. Overall appearance (in my opinion) good/very good for the age, new f/r number plates would add to the overall effect. Car is supplied with an aftermarket boot lid ‘lip’ type spoiler that would need fitting/painting it is of reasonable quality and fit. Interior. Front Seats, are Stoff Floid/Beige 3 (Alba), that’s beige cloth to you and me!, electric and undamaged. Seat bases have a few water type marks the backs are unmarked. In my ownership they have had seat covers on, supplied with the car. Rear Seats, beige cloth, undamaged with a few water type marks on the base and unmarked backs. Seats three snugly or two with the arm rest/drinks holder down. Floor Mats, full set of black rubber ‘grit holder type’ with the two in the front secured with the correct fittings, spares supplied. Full set of aftermarket cloth mats with the correct fittings supplied. Fitted with the usual type of C.C. single CD infotainment unit. Everything inside works as it should, the seats, being all electric/cloth covered are comfortable/warm in use. The colour scheme makes the interior a light and airy space and long journeys relaxing and stress free (in my opinion). Comes with a Cableshack cable/disk etc and also a G10 code reader. Gosh! a car with maintenance bits ‘n’ bobs from day one, Bargain!! Edit: Vehicle is SORN’d at the moment. (1st ) plus lower price/additional info. (2nd) Cheers Boots £2800 new price. (But like everything else in life it’s open to negotiation!) I’m @ Lancaster, M6, J33/4, LA15US. Brews ‘n’ Biscuits always available.

    Considering a 'vert

    Just to stir the pot a bit, as a ‘taster’ try a Saab vert. Plenty of choice both in price, condition and fuel type. A saloon with soft top benefits and plenty of rear leg room, boot space? let’s say ‘good enough’ ! Cheap enough to buy and always easy to sell on (as long as the roof works!). Boots

    Hi Mr D, I have done that and found my previous ‘Gold’ membership renewals but unable to pay again. It was by s/o with PayPal but that has been lost/superseded by something else. So still looking/trying! Boots
