    Convertible Care

    Evening everyone,any advice on best products to keep a convertible top looking its best. If it makes a difference its a BMW factory top.

    Buying used/Not Local...

    You,re right there,this does get some looks,i think the colour helps,in the sun it shines grey/blue with a real sparkle to it, Struggling to upload pics,i,ll have to go on imgur or another to upload.

    Buying used/Not Local...

    Absolutely love it,went for the 630i in the end as i use my car a bit more nowadays,good history,great colour,its like a pearl mettalic grey not sure of its official name,previous owner has fitted 19inch staggered alloys in gloss black and they really set it off against the bodywork and gloss shadowline trim.

    Buying used/Not Local...

    I,ve recently bought a 6 series from an independant dealer 70 miles from me,conversation over phone,dealer then sent me a video of all round condition,i then paid a deposit over the phone which dealer offered to return if when i arrived to view the car decided for whatever reason it wasn,t for me. On arrival a week later car was MOT,d for 12mths,serviced and valeted ready to go.

    Convertible Care

    Update,thanks for all replies but the Convertible in Weston S Mare wasn,t as described,so i,ve bought an E63 coupe,very pleased with it too.
  9. Forgive my ignorance Tim,but i,m not sure,probably have to be at least 17inch to go over the brake calipers, I only need it for a spare as the car hasn,t got one or any provision for one, I,m not bothered about boot space as its only used as a 2nd car.
  10. Tim,has this got a spare wheel? or do you have one that will fit my e63,steel,alloy or space saver will do, Thanks.

    Spare Wheel

    I,m looking for a single wheel for my e63 to use as a spare,i believe e60/61 wheels will fit also if anyone has anything,Steel or alloy i,m not fussed as long as it fits.

    E63 spare wheel

    Afternoon everyone,I,ve bought an E63 that doesn,t have a spare wheel or any provision for one,its also not fitted with runflats, Are these emergency aerosols for punctures any good or shall i buy a spare wheel and lose my boot space,also if i decide on a spare wheel will E60/61wheels fit just to give me a wider choice when looking to purchase one.

    E63 spare wheel

    This is why i,m favouring a spare wheel,i know i,ll lose boot space but its not a massive issue as the car is only used for my work commute and weekend pleasure,if we need boot space we use the wifes Audi Sportback.

    Yes sure it was James,i was in my truck,Green Volvo with white fridge trailer,you may have noticed my reg as it seems to attract a lot of attention 1 FJN,there was a new black Audi 3.5tdi in front of you which had caught my eye when you snook up on me, Your car looked and sounded very nice.

    Merc CLS or BMW E63

    Afternoon everyone,looking for opinions on either of the above, I,m looking for a 2nd car to replace my e46 325Ci,the car will be used for my work commute and leisure motoring at weekends,wife has an Audi 3.2 quattro that she is happy with also being a Sportback we can get the dog in so my choice is wide open, Budget is around 5k,prefer petrol not diesel,fuel economy not a big issue as some weeks the car can sit at work all week, There are quite a few Merc CLS 350,s and BMW 630&645,s around but i don,t know much about either.
