    It’s been a while....

    The two don,t always go hand in hand though,i was over the bloody moon after my divorce 18years ago,as i went on to find,fall in love and marry the woman of my dreams, Essex Boy,post as many pics of your M5 as you can as it looks bloody gorgeous inside and out.
  4. Probably the better option Mazi,not a massive difference in power and slightly more economical to run, I,ve been looking at the classifieds for a work/weekend toy and the S and CL,s are definetly on my radar.
  5. That looks well Mazi,unusually low mileage for one of them.

    Lets see your BMWs that you have owned

    Ha Ha,i know what your saying Andrew, He actually runs 2 fairly new Volvo V70 estates for his bespoke furniture business,but the 650i is his weekend pampered toy i think,it does look immaculate.

    Lets see your BMWs that you have owned

    ^^^^^^ That 7 series looks lovely, How are you finding the 645? I,ve been scanning the classifieds and quite fancy one in the near future,neighbour has a 650i as a weekend smoker and loves it.

    New F11 535i Owner

    Welcome Neil,F11 looks lovely,nice to see a proper power plant and not the usual 520D the roads seem to be swamped with.

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

    Hearing aid beige interior lets it down for me. Also the boot badge is miles off where it should be.

    Check your height

    I saw the pics of the M6 incident and sadly its indicative of the way a lot of HGV drivers behave nowadays, As i,ve said before its not a profession i,m particularly proud of anymore.
  13. ^^^^^ As above,I like them.

  15. Welcome to the forum Chazuno,lovely looking e34 you have there, Lots of knowledgeable members on here to help you along with any questions you may have.

    Check your height

    This is happening all the time now,standards of some HGV drivers is well below par, I don,t know the reason and i sure don,t know the answer but somethings got to change, What with bridge strikes,rollovers,and trucks running up the arses of each other on a daily basis this jobs getting a seriously bad name for itself, I,m not saying i,ve never made a mistake in 30yrs of HGV driving but i,ve never tried to go under a bridge i,m too high for,i drive according to the load on the trailer so have never put the rig on its ribs on a roundabout and i sure as hell don,t drive up the motorway 2ft off the vehicle in front so have never run up anyones arse.

    Misplaced your BMW?

    They didn,t do too bad Andrew,about 30 odd miles,car was taken from Stoke and recovered at Bosley Crossroads between Leek & Macclesfield.

    Misplaced your BMW?

    It was Donna that answered the phone to the police enquiring if the gear was ours,and she was quite panicky when she rang me to tell me about it all, I must confess to telling her she should have said it was ours but that was never going to work as she got flustered at a census stop once on her way home from work.

    Misplaced your BMW?

    I did have a Mk2 Granada 2.8 stolen years ago that when found was full of electrical gear,computers,TV,cameras ect, Wasn,t my gear though,the thieving scrotes had used the car in a ram raid according to the police and ditched it after running out of petrol.

    Imola e39 535i sport

    Looks like both rear quarters and sills have been painted or the doors have,as for the boot badge its too high and is missing its i, Gotta love an imola e39 though,bloody lovely colour even if it is in many shades,looking at some of the ridiculous prices for so called top spec low mileage e39s in se form this car may be worth a look as a starter project.

    Animal lovers, what would you do?

    I really don,t want to comment on an open forum the utter contempt i feel for people like this,they disgust me, Its making my blood boil just reading the opening post, Southport holds happy memories for me as its where we took our Harty for his last walk on the beach before we lost him to cancer.

    White E28 by Asda Wolstanton,Stoke on Trent,tidy looking car,not sure which model only saw it from the front and side,gave driver the thumbs up,nice to see cars like this being used as a daily.
