    Just bought an e34 540i

    and some will say its not a good set up with a square set up you can rotate the tyres front to back to even out the wear.

    Induction charging

    where does clean hydrogen come from then?

    Induction charging

    its mainly because hydrogen is still a byproduct of the oil industry.Unti we hit the magical fusion, hydrogen will be in short supply.

    Gissa job!

    sh43 beckons! I got my fingers crossed for ya too mate!
  7. the manual e39 540s would probably have been the E39 versions of the 535is...there werent many of them to begin with either. I drove one and although a very nice car it wasnt as engaging as the E34 imho
  8. manual e 34s were not exactly common.

    My New Trolley

    This(and manual gearbox and useable torque) is the main reason that got me into a BMW initially.When i bought the 535 I Drove from Auckland to Wellington picked up the family and then up to Napier without any long stops.The Wellington to Napier leg was appalling weather(cars were pulling of the road in heavy rain) but the 535 just lapped it up

    My New Trolley

    this reinforces my view that most people view cars as mobile infotainment systems which require as little driver input as possible. What a sh*t headline Better?

    Wheel Alignment Query

    you have got to complain...if yu dont they think they are fooling you and or dont even realise that what they are doing is crap,though i think they know that already but get away with it time and time again.At least ask for your money back and tell them they wont be touching your car again
