    Contour seats wanted

    I’m looking to get contours for my 740. Picked up leather parts last week including door handles, lower dash, centre console and upper dash. The car I took them from had a Nappa leather interior, so I’ve also taken the back bench but I want some Nappa contours to match the rest Thanks

    They are a very pretty wheel, I bet they look great on your touring. It’s a pity they have become unobtainable but there are plenty of other options out there. Even 18inch softlines would look nice. I’d love to try a set on

    Thanks sharkfan, that makes sense now I saw the e31 classics on eBay and couldn’t believe the price of them!

    Absolutely nothing has happened to the 750 since. The 740 has got whatever attention I have outside of exams! It’s just loving life in the shed I think/hope I've settled on my wheel choice of using the parallels of my e38 when the 21 alpinas are put back on for the summer, and will stay on as I won’t be using the 740 as a daily after the summer So I was planning on putting low profile tyres on the parallels and getting them diamond cut with no lacquer. That along with spacers and a slight drop in the suspension should leave the 750 sitting how I want it Contemplated doing a 3 piece style 5 conversion, but I’m not in love with the wheels enough to pour in £2500 when I could have pretty much any other wheel I liked for that sort of money This blue alpina keeps catching my eye and make me doubt my wheel plans though. If I thought I could get my car to sit with the same stance I’d buy a set of 20 soft lines and do it, but something tells me it’s photoshopped because it looks too good to be true.. I’m also doubting if they are 20” softlines, they may be 18s (what do you think?), either way it looks fantastic

    M5 Mirrors Genuine or fake?

    I don’t know why but I have it in my head that if I put £250 into a genuine set they would hold their valve better than replicas But I wouldn’t be planning on selling them anytime soon, which kinda contradicts my thinking haha if anyone knows of nice genuine set tag me

    M5 Mirrors Genuine or fake?

    Them mirrors come with a packet of gears as they are currently broken ! I was planning on fitting them to my e38 but now I’m not so sure if they are worth it they are broken, need painted and don’t come with the control module or fold switch.... £250 if someone could give me an idea what a working set are worth including the switch and module that would be great !

    Got the car running again. I removed the fuse from the DWS unit which disarmed the immobiliser. Still haven't got to the bottom of it but I'm working with a few guys on an American forum and Mark who are a great help. At least now the car starts and locks/unlocks. Im not sure if there's any disadvantages to having no DWS module On a different note, I bought this plate today. Im thinking of getting pressed plates for the car. Should make it a bit more unique

    Update Once a disconnected battery is reconnected on an e32 the alarm goes off Because my car has 302 * Remote Control Anti-Theft it has an external remote fob This fob is pictured below and guess what, it’s lost So I need to get one of bmw but until then I need to disarm the alarm siren by a special key, which I’m hoping I have as the car came with loads. The siren is reportedly hidden beside the wiper blade motor

    Need some help guys Car is still in storage, but tonight I went to show it to my mechanic, as he called round and when I re connected the battery the alarm went off Anyway, the remote locking doesn’t work and I can’t unlock/lock the car with the drivers door, just the passenger side. I’m sure I left it unlocked the last time I left it As soon as I connect the battery the hazards come on and then the penetrating horn starts! I think its it’s time to fix the drivers side door locking problem so if I could get some help on that first and hopefully that resolves the alarm issue Car wouldn’t fire with the alarm going off, I’m guessing that’s the immobiliser ?
