    Sunroof Sliding Cover

    Thanks Sharkfan. I think I’ve been a Wally!... After you posted I went to take pics... it closed fully, and easily! Then I tilted sunroof and it wouldn’t close... and I reckon it’s probably DESIGNED not to be close-able when tilted!... make sense? I assume yours might be the same?

    B10 V8 T Water Ingress Tailgate

    Thanks Greenelekta, encouraging words... I never did hear back from Andrew but I did see many of his posts from during his ownership... and I also had a long conversation with Steve Millar who bought the car from Andrew... and who then sent it to auction along with 4 other cars from his collection. All seems good, thanks again. P

    B10 V8 T Water Ingress Tailgate

    Hi, I stupidly left tailgate open in the rain (30 mins!) and water appears to have got in at the top of the rear glass... ...Anyone had to do a full drying exercise on this? Pete
  15. Hi, I'm a Newbie to BMW5... recently acquired the B10, lovely car!  I just want the front to be down a tad, 20mm should do it.

      Welcome - that's a rare beast.

       

      Looks like a facelift model judging by the lights and wheels.

       

      Sharkfan on here is your man to do all things Alpina and Greenelektra has a B10s touring too.
