Re: F11 D5 BiTurbo - #162

That looks fantastic Paul - it's a beautiful car. Glad they have done a good job on the bodywork for you. I've recently refreshed the wheel badges on mine - you've probably seen, but they come with the rotating plastic carriers as well so it's worth doing. You can get them from AWD - give me a shout...

Re: Occasional spam posts

No worries Charles - nice to have a bit of fun with them, knowing they are soon to be history. :-)

Thanks for all of the admiring comments chaps.

Deposit now taken.
Fantastic - that was quick! My old F11 535i sold in just a few hours as well. On the one hand it's great, on the other you think, should I have asked for more? I think better just to be pleased with the quick sale.

Re: Rav's 1999 B3 3.3 Saloon - Yes I bought it!!

Glad you are pleased Rav. It's definitely money well spent - as you say, it's what defines these cars. Hopefully with an end to lockdown on the horizon and the better weather you'll get to really enjoy and appreciate it.

Beautiful day today, so gave the car a little TLC.....😊
Ah wow, it's such a looker. Very nice Jason. Agree with Asim too, it looks like you live 'on holiday'! :D

Speaking of which, we've just booked up 2 weeks in Cornwall this summer so I'll keep my eyes peeled for you!

Re: Hello! New F11 B5 Owner

Thanks Guys :) Toby, I've been really pleased with the tyres. I've tried a fair few winters over the years and I'd say these are the best. Obviously most of the time through a British winter it's single figure temps and damp - the main thing for me is that they remain close in feel dynamically to a ...

Re: Hello! New F11 B5 Owner

My friend popped over earlier to re-apply the front wing decals on my car. They were the first set he'd done and he was never happy how they sat around the front arch. Only a slight difference but a big improvement - I'm really pleased.

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

My B5 met up with a D3BT Touring that lives just round the corner from me. I've been chatting to the owner and he wants to refresh the stripes so my pal is going to do him a set. Was nice to see them together - I really should have taken a photo. Weather was beautiful!

Screwed up that post but meant to say that with the weather being good spent a good bit of today cleaning and giving the leather a clean and feed. it was good to get out after the recent poor weather.
Your car is an absolute beauty John - love the spec inside and out.

Re: My E9

There is no better sound than multiple carbs coming into song. The only thing I’ve experienced that’s close is a e46 m3 with csl intakes. It's true. I think the closest I've heard was the F20C in my old S2000 with a HKS intake on. Made as close to a big carb sound on a modern injection engine, it w...

Re: My E9

Is that a RS1800? That’s the biggest icon in RS circles, well for the old guys. I guessing that the fiesta is a 1300s from the stripe. XR2 has a bigger following but the s and super sport are now rarer, as everyone saved the X-RAY and RS models. It is an RS1800 yeah - he had it for about 10 years. ...

Re: My E9

WAS a Capri man, had lots but will never replace VYJ, in hind sight I question trading it for a cheap e30 mtec 1 to strip into a track car. I must have been or am mad. The Capri looks superb. I think anyone who has sold a classic Ford like that regrets it now. Reminds me of my formative, years - my...
