    E34 525i 1994 running cold

    Funny this subject should be brought up. I recently coughed up for a genuine BMW thermostat and I'm not happy with it either. When cruising at a constant speed, the temp guage fluctuates between 11 o'clock to 12 o'clock. Water pump and radiator also brand new so the only thing I can put it down to is the thermostat. No air locks what so ever and heater working perfectly. May well be giving Cotswold a ring soon regarding a replacement as it's only a couple of months old

    E28 Prices!!

    Well said Dave. I personally think that's a hell of project and definitely not one for the faint hearted. I personally couldn't ever muster the courage to take on some thing like that.
  3. Oh and for the record, not keen on the puma. Never liked those things and don't think it will ever be considered as a "classic"
  4. Yeah I call b.s on the E34. No way your gonna get an E34 540i/6t for under 3k. If you did, you're a very lucky man and that ain't going to happen EVER again

    Even if that means I've got to convert them to E85 or LPG to future proof them, I'd rather do that then run soulless electric shitboxes. Worst case scenario, I'll switch to 100% SVO in the M51

    Car part suppliers - Autodoc and others.

    Thought I'd chime in to this one. I've personally had two separate issues with autodoc and customer services were absolutely uselessly. First issue was one of the parts I ordered out of a fairly large delivery (circa £300) went out of stock 3 days after I had paid and placed the order. The part was iirc only worth a fiver but I argued with them for over two weeks to get my order sent out as this particular part was out of stock. What annoyed me the most was on the app, you can see how many parts/pieces are left in stock. When I paid and ordered there was loads left but as it takes autodoc at least 3 days to even process your order, by the time they did, the number of parts sold out. I even told them to put the equivalent part but of another make instead just to get it shipped out but as it was something stupid like 17p more expensive, they wouldn't do it. Tossers. I think after much arguing with them, my order eventually turned up after nearly 3 weeks. Not impressed. Second incident was the on a separate order, parts was so badly packed, they were damaged on delivery and after another week of arguing and sending photos etc, I gave up and just bought the part elsewhere. Maybe I've just been unlucky, but my experience has definitely been negative with autodoc and I vowed never to use them again because of the absolutely terrible customer service support I received from them.

    '94 540i Touring 6spd - The Money Pit!

    Nice. Are those 17" flat stars? And I completely agree, they look fantastic, particularly on an e34 touring

    What's it worth?

    I was going to suggest 450 quid seems about right. Not a particularly desirable model and with the work it needs doing to pass the MOT, seems like a good ball park figure IMHO

    What a disaster...

    Can't tell what colour it is supposed to be? First 3 photos look white, last 3 look like baby blue...

    Real men

    +1 Agreed. Smooth straight 6 petrol engine was BMW's trademark for years. However from what I read, they are becoming rarer in the newer models in favour of boosted 4 cyl engines instead

    Headlamps very poor
