    Hi Ben, While on the subject of rear window blinds I forgot to mention the uber rare Electric E28 rear sun shade: Also the uber, uber rare Rear passenger door sun shades: https://forum.bmw5.co.uk/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=108379 Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    So we have been back in the third wave lockdown for about 4 weeks now so the next phase of hard landscaping has commenced to the North side of the house down stream from the "Spitbank Fort" retaining wall we put up last Autumn: The propane tank sandy soil foundations kept washing away and the tank would take on quite a pronounced list so the time has come for a concrete pad to be laid. First step was to move the propane tank out of the way and mark out the rough location of the future decorative retaining wall around the location of the concrete pad: Yet again the 4 inch drain lines had not been glued which is likely why the soil kept being washed away from the propane tank. Dug out the old drain line and applied a rubberised paint to the foundation wall Fitted new drain line fittings, with an added clean out point, and glued them to within an inch of their lives. Back filled the trench with 1/2 inch washed gravel: Next will be the wall around where the concrete pad will be laid. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    The BMW5 random picture thread

    Gordon the Groundhog is back with his two pups Gordon and the first pup, Gordoo: Second pup, Gordop: Maybe Gordon isn't a Gordon Groundhogs mate when the come out of hibernation and have a 30 day gestation period. Pups are born bald, blind and helpless. At about 6 weeks they are weaned and emerge from the burrow to feed. Today is the first time we have seen any pups and they were eating a truck load of our weeks, brilliant. Stay safe and best regards, Mick
  5. So the third party hit the side of your wife's car with the front of hers? Unless your car can go sideways then your wife 's car was hit not the other way around. The laws of physics tend to support this theory. So the third party attempted to turn left when it was not clear to do so, as that position was unready occupied by your wife. Surely this would fall under an undue care and attention remit which would be supported by dash cam footage. Was the third party on her phone / texting at the time of the incident, digital time stamps from phones / dash cams could confirm or deny this. Did the third party have a dash cam? Why can't people just be honest and accept the responsibility / consequences of their actions. Then there are the insurance companies who are likely not interested in the truth only the balance sheet so if they go 50/50 will both gain when they jack up both parties insurance premiums down the road. The question is surely do you just want to roll over and be shafted by the insurance companies or fight it all the way? Stay safe and best regards, Mick
  6. A guy over in the US is re-manufacturing these (no longer available from BMW) brackets for use with the OEM 25 mm anti-roll bar, clamps and bushes. https://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=153356 I have already acquired three sets and the quality of the product is good. First set is with Classic Autobahn for fitting to the Bronzitbeige Eta during the body restoration and re-paint. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    Hi Ben, In answer to your questions and a little bit of a story of my rear parcel shelf journey. Roller Blind Fitting: You will need the Holders x 2 (item 9) which clip onto pre-existing bracket on the roof above the headliner. You will likely need the Hook Left (item 4) and Hook Right (item 5) as these may not come with a second hand roller blind or may be sun brittle / damaged. The roller blind is secured with screws x 2 (item 6), nuts x 2 (item eight) and washers x 2 (item 7). All of these items look to still be available from the Main Stealers as they have not been "ENDED".

Third high level brake light I wanted some more safety / protection from the UK "tail gaiters" as the E28 brake light are quite low down so acquired an E28 high level brake light from the US and fitted it to the Bronzitbeige Eta back in 2015: Subsequently found that the US E28's have a parcel shelf with a significant rear set to accommodate the third high level brake light. Acquired a US parcel shelf and had d:class automotive https://www.dclass.co.uk/ fit a roller blind in front of the step and re-upholster with new carpet which ended up looking like this: This was conducted as part of a complete interior re-trim back in 2016-2017: https://www.dclass.co.uk/gallery_images/bmw-525e/ Had three hybrid US parcel shelf with integrated Euro roller blind and premium speaker set up produced by d:class.

A curved back parcel shelf with large center arm rest for the Bronzitbeige Eta trimmed in Nutria carpet, currently waiting to be fitted on completion of the body work and re-paint by Classic Bahnstormers in Cirencester http://www.classicbahnstormers.com/.

Only the PEARLBEIGE item showing as available and when these have all been sold this will also likely be "ENDED". Believe this is for a curved back parcel shelf as I have had three of these but they were anthrazit, so I likely expended the remaining stock of these a couple of year back. Hopefully this will help and inform you of the "art of the possible" with E28 parcel shelves. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    Hi Sutts, You have PM. Best regards, Mick
  10. Premium speakers in this condition are as rare as hens teeth and do not come up for sale in the UK very often. Took me several years to obtain 3 good sets for my Eta's, which all came from dry southern states as well. GLWS. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    M5 front spoiler availability

    Hi Ben, The 1987 Diamantschwartz Eta has the anti-gravel finish to the lower valence below the bumper. The 1985 Zobelbraun Eta in painted smooth. This may be a replacement part / re-spray as this car suffered some front end damage with a previous owner. On reflection I think I agree with your observation that it looks smarter smooth painted. Good spot sir. Stay safe and best regards, Mick
