    RIP HRH The Prince Philip

    Very sad for the Queen,70 odd years married, RIP Sir.
  2. Loaded on Felixstowe dock this afternoon,in the companies compound for imports there,s a rather dusty violet coloured e36 M3,they say its been in the country about a month awaiting transport to its new UK owner.
  3. Would that be a period colour? I quite like that in red.
  4. Vauxhall Senators Duncan,i,d love another 3.0ltr 24v but there,s nothing about,the odd Monza pops up on E-Bay but no late Senators to be had.
  5. Its a 150,000ml money pit,the reg plate is worth more than the car, Air con needs a re-gas,yeah right course it does,if thats all it wants get it done then. I know there are cars on this forum that have done similar or more miles and wouldn,t be classed as money pits but this car has been sat in storage and along with the poor advert wouldn,t inspire me to take a closer look.
  6. Lovely looking executive transport for the dog,trouble is i wouldn,t want to put our Hamish in there for fear of ruining it.

    Any Snow pictures please?

    Been snowing here in Trentham quite heavy since lunch time,going work tonight so it will be interesting to see how the XC70 copes with the journey to Tern Hill.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    No idea what it was called,the tub was not marked with anything,he just dipped the cloth in and rubbed over the affected area and it was totally transformed, That was about 12mths ago now and after umpteen washes its never faded,in certain sunlight you can see a few swirl marks but nothing of the unsightly lacquer peel, It was only meant as a temporary cover up but as i say with the current situation my indy has spent a lot of time closed so haven,t had the chance to get it sorted with a paint job.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    We had same issue with Donnas red Audi last year,just one hand sized section on the roof which became apparent after a wash one weekend, The following week i was at my local indy and asked the paintsprayer for a quote to paint the roof,anyway he came out had a look then disappeared back into the spray shop,came back out with a small tub and a cloth and rubbed something out of the tub onto the affected area, The result was the affected area all but disappeared,he said it was laquer gel and would stop it getting worse until he could get it in, That was 12mths ago now and you still can,t see the affected area and obviously with Covid i haven,t been able to get in in to be sprayed.
