    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 ?

    Thanks @d_a_n1979! The e32 is finally home, washed and tucked into a shed until I’m ready to do some work on it. I have to sell the 740 and 540 to give myself some breathing space first!

    I understand it’s my car but I don’t want to wreck it. I value any opinions good or bad . With my other cars I’ve knew exactly what I wanted. This is totally different though. It’s more special than the others and feel like it deserves to be done right

    I’m fed up having second best owning a 540 and 740 which should be a m5 and 750. Now I have the 750 I feel like I’ve accomplished something, as sad as it may sound. I’m very much undecided on what to do with it. I think 17 alpinas would compliment it nicely and just leave it there and enjoy it. I need to play about on photoshop to help make up my mind

    The 750 has arrived home! After looking threw a fat leather wallet off service history it seems that the car was original sold by Paragon Cars London. The service book isn't missing a stamp which is reassuring I LOVE the interior, it's incredibly clean and very luxurious. It makes my e38 740 sport feel basic in comparison! First thing it needs is a new expansion bottle. The check coolant level message flashed on so I checked the bottle and noticed one of the hoses was very wobbly. The plastic ring had broken inside the pipe which must have caused a leak. Ordered a new one from BMW, so until then there's no more v12 sounds The engine isn't idling as smooth as it should be. I've never heard an m70 v12 before but I know it should be silky smooth which mine isn't. I think a diagnostic tool would be a good investment at this point. Having 4 old bm's I think I will get good use out of it haha For some reason the central locking isn't working and I can only open the car by turning the key in the passenger door and not the drivers door It is in great need of some bodywork love. Which I think it is more than worthy of. Theres rust in the usual e32 places, bottom off the doors etc but underneath seems clean So it certainly isn't without its problems. But I expected that. To be honest, the market is so limited for e32s, if I were to wait for a perfect one I would be waiting a very long time. So I'm going to turn what I have into perfection The biggest issue is the metric wheels lol I hate them! As I've already stated, I would like 17" Alpinas and lower it tastefully but I'm also having bad thoughts about 18 inch style 5s. But before investing 2k into a set of wheels, the 740 must be sold first!

    @red35 that looks great and is exactly what I had in mind for mine! especially the wheels. Im torn between clears and ambers. If my car came with clears I would keep them I think. After searching for them wheels, it turns out they are more rare than I first realised. Especially 10j rears!
