    Rear Chrome Bumper

    Welcome to the hunt. What I’m having to do is find a painted straight rear, get it stripped and then re-chromed. New chrome rears just do not exist anywhere. There are some stainless steel items available from USA that Mick knows about and some pattern corners crop up but actual chrome straight rear blades are totally nonexistent. I have been searching 2 years solid and nothing. I look absolutely everywhere.
  2. Was looking at all my E28 related stuff the other night and came across these rear window dealer stickers that I had reproduced the artwork for a while back. At that time, I didn’t have a graphics suite on my computer so unfortunately they were done in in MS Word and don’t print as sharp as they should. Now I have a graphics suite so I need to reproduce them again - so that they are of a better print quality. There’s a lot to do though. A lots of old 1970/80s copies of old car magazines were bought to do this - So i could find the dealer logos in the adverts. Some are actual real designs from I have seen personally and some are what I had to design myself but the details are all correct of that period. What do you think ?

    Rear Window Dealer Stickers

    Yes I have seen them on eBay too. Suspect he saw mine somewhere and decided to copy some of them to sell - copying is a great form of flattery Yes incorrect digit and symbols missing breaking up the address - it’s all in the details. That’s why I do my research and bought dozens of 70’s and 80’s car magazines to make sure they were right. Fair play I suppose, for the amount they’d sell, I couldn’t be arsed myself.

    Ask Dave at DMB Graphics. He can make you up a set of Dealership Plates same as your originals.

    Colver and Hencher in Bucks ? There’s a picture of their dealer sticker in my pictures in the opening post above.
  7. Hi there, nothing wrong with your English at all. Well done for finding us and thanks for buying the umbrella- glad you are enjoying it. Put up some photos of what you have ? Salut, rien de mal avec votre anglais du tout. Bravo de nous avoir trouvés et merci d'avoir acheté le parapluie - heureux que vous l'appréciiez. Mettez des photos de ce que vous avez?
  8. Thought I would post something a little different after reading Ordinator’s Bellino Petrol Can post. I have collected a few period BMW accessories over the years for my E28s, many of which have cost a fortune but that is beside the point and that’s what I save for. I expect some of you own some of these as well and it would be interesting to hear and see what is out there. I do like a collection, so with the relevant pages from my 80’s BMW Accessories folder, I post my real collected items with the corresponding brochure pages below. My favourite is the new Pioneer head unit. The one that constantly eludes me is an 80s period BMW blue tow rope. My regret is selling my new 80s M Style umbrella just a little before Xmas because I needed the money - doubt I’ll see another one of those again. The bits have come from all around the world - America, Germany, Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Egypt and more. It’s out there still but you have to put in hours, weeks, months of searching to find it. I get quite the buzz when I do. I also have quite a sizeable collection of BMW Biersteins which I will post up another time. Thanks for looking. Spare Bulb Set - used but unused bulbs Co-Pilot Map Reading Light, Warning Light / Lamp - new Hand Lamp - new Rarer First Aid Kit Box and Pillow Cushion both bought from America - used Rechargeable Glove Box Torch which found reproduced by the German company - new Burgundy leather wallets - new and Rowenta lighter - used but like new . Cross Pen set - could be new Key Fob - used Here is some in car entertainment accessories and options. Antenna Wipes - new An M Power sounds cassette which consists of recordings of various engine notes from various different cars - an E9 CSL race car for example ! I guess it made you think you was going faster than you actually were with this blasting out from the speakers ! Never played this one though. Cassette Tape Holder - new Pioneer KE 5230 Head Unit and TS 466 Speaker Grilles - new My own 9ltr Bellino Petrol Can - used but very very clean. I also have a rare 6ltr one which was made to fit under below 15” wheels in the spare wheel well. . Hope to see what you guys have out there ?...
  9. There’s nothing like boxes of E28 goodies when they arrive!

    Yeah was gonna say the same - keep it de-badged and surprise a few annoying drivers ! It looks quite underwhelming and I love that.

    Petrol, and diesel sales banned by 2030!

    I agree with Duncan. COVID has proved one thing in that home working is possible and can work. I had been saying it for years to my company and now suddenly there is a complete 180 for it. So many benefits it’s shown including my quality of life radically improving, my safety (road accidents), less fuel, less CO2. This is what the Government wants so why was it encouraging people to get back to the office ? TBH, it is inevitable EV’s are now coming so as long as I can keep and drive my classic for 1000 miles a year, I’m ok with it. Just wonder what is going to generate all the electricity that will be needed.

    Where will the government then get all their lost revenue from the loss in petrol or diesel sales........I have a feeling what’s around the corner for the then electric motorist?
