Re: E60 B5 #xx1 - Cheap!

It looks like it may need new headlights and tail lights also if the surface has been damaged too much by the paint stripper. Not sure what the seller means by refurbished S/C and it is the older style S/C. How much for a quality respray, new lights al around and S/C history to be checked thoroughly...

Re: E60 B5 S - off throttle noise

I have a B6s with similar mileage with a younger supercharger and it doesn’t sound like that. Have you checked for free movement of the valve in front of the supercharger or for fault codes recorded? Also what is the centrifugal clutch pad depths like on the supercharger, probably not this bur wor...

Re: E38 B12 5.7 alpina blue at auction

No buyer fees via the market auction. This was a Japanese import but the car is in England. I saw it a few weeks ago in the flesh as they were promoting it at a cars and coffee morning local to me.

Re: E63 B6 S (Jap Import)

Lovely looking interior on the car, not sure about the black classics, maybe I’m just used to the silver dynamics on mine. I thought all B6s came with dynamics but maybe there was an option for the classics! The supercharger history maybe hard to confirm being Japanese but apart from that a lovel...

Re: ALPINA New Sales Manager Europe

Well that’s not the case in Europe as FMW tuning can source parts and a non BMW dealer in the UK is also supplying parts now. So there is wriggle room obviously

Re: E46 B3 Shock Absorber

I ordered my shocks and springs from alloy wheels direct. Cheaper than FMW and arrived within 2 weeks, can recommend them. Others have used them too.
