    Injector parts

    you don't mention but it sounds like a diesel engine? unless your leakoff pipes are leaking I'd not replace them and my experience of anything non oem in this respect has been poor. injector seals are copper washers, and given bosch probably make almost all diesel injectors these days and they're almost all identical in body dimensions its very easy to source them, what does vary is the thickness of the original washer, and there are loads of "repair" washers listed by most manufacturers for when the seats have been cut, so it'll be worthwhile finding out what the original thickness should be and going a little thicker to allow for a clean of the seats. a brief glance across ebay and there looks like there may be an O-ring on the body of the injector too.

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    finally got around to getting the sunroof panels off, stared at the mechanism for ages, poked and prodded, realised how it was meant to work and figured which bit was seized, broke the plastic off the end of the right hand cable, pulled the front tube assembly off. found that the cable had rusted solid and actually expanded and split the guide tube 4 inches from the end, sent a cutting disc through the tube either side of the bulge and out came the cable from the remains. found a cable on a german website for half the dealer price delivered, and about £10 cheaper than ebay, i'll have to find some suitable tube to weld back in when the new cable arrives whenever it does!

    Car part suppliers - Autodoc and others.

    lemforder from ecp/cp4l isnt Lemforder stuff any more, just a brand name, not sure how that works but its what I have seen mentioned a few times. used autodoc a few times recently, as mentioned do some part number cross referencing to confirm its right, takes a while is the only gripe.

    rear seat folding to standard retrofit

    ha, fair enough! I'm not especially familiar with the saloon, my touring has a split fold seat and the base on that is one piece.

    Refurb'd Common Rail Diesel Injector Leaking

    should have been covered by any warranty they had which has been voided by the fiddling you did taking them apart.
