  1. Waited 4 months for a used rust-free sunroof to turn up from an E31 collector in Canada. Finally got it painted and fitted. Now just waiting on some pesky headlining clips that are (of course) only found on the E31 and E32, so BMW NZ only had 4 in stock out of the 16 I need. Hopefully fresh headlining will be in by Xmas!! Only other outstanding jobs are crank position sensors - which will be a summer job as they're a bit of a mission to change - and servotronic steering retrofit - which I'm in absolutely no hurry to do!! haha
  2. Ron would probably enjoy keeping a trusty auto going for a few more years.
  3. Anyone wrecking an E32 or E34 sedan with a sunroof? I need 12 more of these clips to reattach my 850i headlining. Would prefer not to wait 2 weeks ex-Germany. Found on cars with sunroofs only (except E34 wagon). Thanks in advance.
  4. Anyone got any new or good used crankshaft sensors for an M70 (E32 750 or E31 850)? It's a long wait to get them ex-Germany.
  5. You'll need an old (90s) 4:3 laptop with Windows 95, ADS interface and OBD I (20 pin) plug. Best software seems to be INPA/DIS/Carsoft. Lots of info here - just search E31 and/or INPA - https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?233-Diagnostic-Software
  6. Looks very Aston from the rear. Front grille is pretty ugly but it wouldn't surprise me if it gets a more front more consistent with the other models when a production version is made. Hope it comes with a version of the twin turbo V12 that the new M760iL has.
  7. I've been a bit quiet on here for a while. Mainly because of life's many interventions, but also because the 8er has had an irritating ignition issue so has been largely undriven while I slowly hunted around for parts and time to sort it. Anyway, got it running smoothly once more this weekend and took some pics - sadly, because I'm probably going to sell her - and was reminded just how beautiful the 8 series is.
  8. Yep, it's meant to sound like that. Old skool.
  9. Sweet!! Pity the 8er is too low or I'd have come too!
  10. Hook ups
  11. Chinese seller on eBay. Even came with a clever little tool for removing the filter. I did all 12 previously on the 8er so I've got pertty quick. Took me 15-20 minutes to do six. The kit has enough for 4 more injectors which you're welcome to but guessing you need two more sets!
  12. Replaced the injector seals and filters ready for cleaning and testing.
  13. Dave, that's awesome, thanks!
  14. Exactly! Though we're some way off that!! Haha
  15. The heavier, underpowered M50b20 means we're not going to be quite as quick around the track as we'd anticipated but we never entertained the thought of winning. At least the iron block means the car is nice on low on its factory sport suspension!!
