    Oops !

    Quite, £200 for a couple of bits of plastic seems bloody expensive to me!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I'm having trouble uploading pictures for some reason....

    So I've finally had my front bumper repaired after my falling down a hole incident, I don't have a before picture (my sister took pictures when it happened) but the usual bodyshop guy I use has done a bloody job of repairing it, this corner of the bumper was literally hanging off with big holes smashed in it; I've also had another go at my two tone door cards, I'd previously died the inserts but was never happy with the colour match so with a bit of time and patience I've fitted the beige inserts from the original door cards in to the black ones now fitted. I'm very happy with the results.

    To remove the original radio cradle you have to remove the lower half of the dashboard, and to remove the lower half of the dashboard you have to remove the centre console.... .......Tin snips was a good plan.

    So hows that Bentley thingy compare to an e39 then?
  6. Have you tried Forza in Caldicot? They aren't a gearbox specialist but REALLY know their stuff when it comes to BMW's.

    ^^ And a sport boot spoiler, the back end of an se always looks like there's something missing imo. Those headlights look great though!

    That is very nice! It reminds me of my old M5, is it a genuine sport as I thought the sport models were introduced on an S reg at the same time as the M5?

    Came across this slightly worse for wear e34 whilst out walking earlier; There were also the remains of a mk2 Granada, what I think was a Rover SD1, a mk3 Escort, mk5 Escort, a Metro city, a mk1 Sierra and a mk3 Cavalier, I think they've been there a while!

    Yep, the M5 and the towbar are long gone (sadly), I've got an SE rear bumper kicking about though that you're more than welcome to.

    There's a few on the 'bay; https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=32211096060&_sacat=0 I've got one sat on my garage floor waiting to go on as my car is making a lovely graunchy 'dry' sound when steering when the car is warmed up, my rocker cover gaskets are on the to-do list too.....

    I fitted a Tow Trust towbar to my 535i Sport and it only required a very small cut out on the bumper insert, in fact, the piece I cut out was so small I kept it and stuck it back in when I removed the tow bar. I fitted the same tow bar to my M5, that surely had to be one of the quickest tow cars on the road.
