    Cat STOLEN

    What age car is it? My 525i is a 91 and only has a pre cat emissions test. Not sure if it would pass the pre cat test without it, I reckon so though. This is English mot requirements not 100% if it’s safe for you’ll double check first then do without it? I doubt any tester would know it was missing unless they were into their early bmws.

    Cheers for that, gave them a ring and ordered some bits of trim I wanted renewing.

    Few extra pics of the car and another question. Where’s a good place (preferably to phone) for parts like the lower door trims and the jacking pads?

    So looking at the key it maybe non genuine. If not no worries, not too fussed about remote central locking, but it would be a bonus obviously (see pics) Haha yeah... the radio, the p/o has it disconnected (said Japanese radios don’t work in uk) with a replacement bmw style connection back in so I’m gonna put a stereo in probably! Thanks for the the kind words about the car, im looking at replacing the rear section of the exhaust (from after the cat) any suggestions on a good stainless kit? I’ll get more pics posted soon, just spent today getting it serviced. Wash tomorrow I hope and then pics!

    Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself! I’m David, and just bought myself a 525i auto! It’s a 1991 Japanese import. P/O says it has original exhaust and brake pipes on it still, yet to get it on our ramp though! The car has only done 33k and has some (albeit not consistent) bmw Japan service history. After the long drive from Edinburgh I can say it drives nicely and didn’t do anything nasty. Was surprised to find the even air con was working with it not doing much! Pics attached. Quick question, it has 3 keys, 2 remote ones but they don’t work, I had a look on the useful links post and saw a link for reprogramming them but it no longer works. Anyone got a working one? Thanks, David.
