*Unless of course you make me an offer I can't refuse :wink:

Mine has isofix fitted,I think late 2002 on was standard fit. In saloons with folding seats and estates there was visible flaps but with a fixed bench saloon you have no sign of it being fitted but dig around at the base of seat and you will find the loops. It was an option on earlier cars but not s...

I had a C5 S6 4.2 for 3 years,not the same but similar. During that period it was 100% reliable,however I was stung with big bills when things needed replacing with one MOT resulting in over 2.5 K in work :shock: this was suspension bits and new self levelling headlamps! Go in with eyes wide open an...

I think I have the wiring already,but not sure until I start digging around in the boot and armrest,I've read a few things online from bimmernav etc and wondered if the ses jumper plug is easily available in the U.K.? I hope it will be fairly obvious what plugs here etc but no harm in being prepared...

OEM Bluetooth retrofit help

I have just got a OEM bluetoooth kit to fit into my E39 B10, I was wondering if anyone here has already done this job as this bundle of wires looks a bit scary!

The seller will get a rebate on any whole months tax outstanding and the new owner buys tax from the day of purchase so the tax man gets the remaining days of the month paid for twice,unless the car is sold on the last day of the month! I suppose lots of people may try to wait until the end of the m...

I still think the revenue will be quids in as every used car will now not have its tax carried over to new owner. The seller will get a rebate on any WHOLE months remaining and the buyer has to fork out for tax on purchase. So every used car sale will mean that the revenue will get paid twice for th...
