    I've ordered a replacement second hand door, supposed to be exact same colour and in perfect condition for £110 delivered. Should arrive midweek, hopefully get it fitted soon as. I was actually walking down my road last Saturday night quite late on and i saw my neighbour and his brother walking passed my car, they both stopped and looked at the dent then i heard him saying that's the dent there, then he saw me and quickly walked away. I was speaking to another neighbour and he says he saw him late one night lifting up window wipers and pushing in wing mirrors on other peoples car. The guy is a loony

    I know its too late but i will be getting CCTV soon, There is no CCTV in the area but i noticed a scuff on his bumper which would of been the side he skelped the door with and i checked two days later and it was away. He was physically shaking and stuttering when i pulled him up, so that alone signifies his guilt to me anyway. I think i will get a 2nd hand door and see what happens, i know a couple of detailers who might be able to blend it all in Thanks for all the input Mark

    Evening All I am after some advice on what to do about my car, last Sunday around midnight someone reversed into my drivers side door and proceeded to piss off. I know who the guy was but i have no proof it was him. I confronted him about it and he blatantly lied to my face denying it. Its a 2007 E60 535D and i love my car. I am now just looking for advice on what to do next: Option 1: I have full protected no claims insurance, its a £250 excess i would have to pay straight away. So do i just go thru the insurance or Option 2: Try to source a 2nd hand door, get it sprayed and fit the door with my mate who is a mechanic Thanks inadvance Mark

    Glow Plug Issue

    Good Morning. I have found the following error code " 4212 Glow Plug, Cylinder 1, Activation " on my 535D. Whilst i removed / cleaned the EGR and replaced the throttle actuator valve i replaced cylinder 1 glow plug with a brand new one. Cleared the codes etc but this one keeps appearing. Any ideas Thanks inadvance Mark
