    What have you done on your E34 Today

    cut out a big chunk of the rear of the drivers side sill, far from the worst I have seen posted here, but still a fair old chunk! I do have a sill panel to chop a piece out of however the middle of the jacking point support needs repair also, as well as the inner sill and the closing panel in the wheelarch onto the end of the sill.

    Drive shaft bolts

    quite likely to be dealer only, they come with the thread locking compound already on them I'd imagine, like flywheel bolts etc. in my experience though if they are cleaned and fresh thread lock applied and tightened to the appropriate setting they will be fine to re-use.

    a few weeks back I fitted the Rc090 back on with two new tyres, fitted a track rod end and did the tracking. taxed and insured it it hunts/surgesn on light throttle which I dont recall it doing when auto, swapped the TPS and no change, it has been sat 2 years + though..

    this amused me, the E34 really isnt that heavy, a very brief google suggests they are 65 kilos lighter than an E36 M3.

    Upside down side view camera image

    i guess its not possible to turn the camera then?
  11. so the DW10 psa engine, I'm sure the flexi is not part of the dpf on that age, only the lager euro 6 engine. I'd get under and have a peek myself.

    DPF removal pros vs cons

    you also need to get the egr running properly as that is used to regulate the Regen temps, or get the dpf off.
  13. https://www.clampcouk.co.uk/exhaust-flexible-pipe.html from memory of either engine type used I'd guess at under £20 for the part, I think they would need to be welded as they have curved pipe in and out, i think you need at least 50mm or straight tube to clamp onto for a no weld repair.
  14. any decent garage that does some welding should be able to sort it for you, like mentioned above all is needed is to measure up and order a flexi section and have it welded in. I had to do exactly this on my E34 when the flexi on that failed in the downpipe, measured up and ordered from https://www.clampcouk.co.uk/ is it a 1.6 or 2.0 PSA engine?
