    Rear Badge

    Thanks for the tip, much appreciated. I thought Id just double check with the local dealer first, and they came back at £57 for both badges which I thought was ok, so Ive ordered from them. I see one of my mirrors are starting to fade, so Ill try Cotswolds for that.

    Rear Badge

    Just noticed that my rear M5 badge has disappeared, nicked or just fallen off. After a quick look on ebay I see they are about the £60 mark. Is this the going rate for genuine badges, or is there a cheaper supplier?

    Thanks for your comments, very much appreciated. I'm not so keen on the idea of S.O.R. I can see the benefit of course, easier for someone to buy with the confidence of supply through a dealer. But if I'm going to sell, I'd rather it be done quickly with the minimum of fuss. Nearest classic auction place to me is in Perth, going to be talking with them again tomorrow, so I'll hear what they have to say before deciding. https://www.morrisleslie.com/auctions/classic-cars/

    How much to ask?

    Trying to figure out how much I should be asking for my car, prices seem to be all over the place? Could really do without the hassle of advertising and private sale, I can imagine it attracting a lot of time wasters. So I'm thinking either a classic car auction, or selling direct to a dealer. I answered a wanted ad yesterday, and the dealer seems keen to buy after sending him some photos, service history etc., now asking how much I want for it. Guess I should've been figuring this out first before asking if he wanted to buy. Any pointers would be very much appreciated, just trying to gauge where the market is at the moment. Some more pics of the car, it is a nice one, took a lot of searching to find. 94K miles, 3 previous owners before me. Apologies if this comes across as a for sale ad, but it's not. I assume everyone on here has one already, and as I said, I'd rather sell to a dealer or auction.

    Yes, good suggestion. Would go well with that I think.

    Thanks for that, nice mark up. Wondering if auction may be the way to go if I put mine up for sale, be an exciting day out if nothing else.

    Thanks for all the positive comments, very much appreciated. The more I look at it the more I think they look good, so they are on to stay. Gave the car a quick hoover and took some more photos this afternoon, as I'm thinking of letting it go soon, but I'll ask about that on another thread. A couple of more pics from this afternoon.

    Have any decent cars been put through a classic car auction recently? Be interesting to see what one would go for through the likes of Silverstone classic auction, for example.

    New wheels finally on.

    Since the car was in for MOT, service and a couple of new tyres, I thought I may as well get the new wheels fitted, bought them on here back in December. Look a bit darker than I thought once on, but a vast improvement on the wheels I had. Wasn't sure at first, but the more I see them the more they grow on me.

    Been looking for some time to replace mine, which are somewhat corroded. Took them to the local Wheel Specialist place some time back, they claimed they could fix them, came back a complete mess. These arrived today, delighted with them, and very well packaged. Thanks for getting them sent so quickly and taking the time to package them well Dan, very much appreciated.

    Thanks for your reply, if it's just excess coating then it makes sense.

    Hi, are these still for sale? Will also send you a PM. A few questions if you don't mind. Did the company that did the refurb offer any explanation for the for the numbers being removed? It take it that has happened with the use of blasting of some sort, or are they just clogged with paint/coating? Has anyone else experienced numbers fading or being unreadable after refurbishment?
