Doesnt an m5 sound good already??

Edit: is there any reason why youve left the rear plate frames?

Martin's M5 has no mufflers at all at the moment, it could do with some to quieten it down and 'tune' the sound a bit.

Yes, there is a reason I've left the rear plate frames... I just haven't got around to do anything about them yet ;)

Anyone replaced all the gaskets in a power steering box (for E31, E34, E38, etc)? On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being any monkey could do it) and 10 being give it to the pros, how hard is it ?

It's a bastard having to turn the roundels on each wheel everytime you park somewhere... Need the Rolls Royce rotating items :lol:

Bugger! Another set of decals required huh:- I replaced the same type on the E12 a few ago, no M badge to have to line up though. Probably just as well ;)

Replaced all the dash and centre console bulbs and can finally see everything at night. Also just re-gassed the air con as well as my better half decided that had to go up the priority list! Only 35g of gas in there (out of a massive 1.5kg requirement!) so no surprise it wasn't cold!! The machine tested a small leak but it must either have been emptied or not re-gassed for a very long time to get down to just 35g.

Will keep an eye on it for a while and if it stops working quickly will hunt for the leak source/s.

Sitting in airport lounges can be dull so I spent a few minutes with photoshop deciding what wheels I'd one day like to put on the E31. Unfortunately, I've decided a set of Ferrari F40 or 308 wheels would be the best option... Shame they will probably never fit or come in the right size. Oh well. The OZ racing ones look pretty gorgeous too...

Yep. The ACS 3 piece are great. There's a set on eBay at the moment. Only £2.5K for just the rims. Bargain!!

4th from the top (not sure what they are) - subtle and classic design that wont look stupid in 12 months time.

Interesting! Those are my least favourite! They're from a late model Ferrari (forget which). They look like generic BBS to me and a bit too modern for the car... The E31 really needs deep dish wheels to fill the wide arches and it does seem to sit better on slightly smaller (17-18") wheels.

Jules I personally love the M parallels. Are yours staggered? I think they are the best wheel on both the E31 and e34 as they tastefully fill up the arches.
