  1. Since 2012 I've owned a 2000 2.8 Z3 with the same M52 28 TU (?) and every winter it gets mayo on the filler cap and dipstick and then every spring it disappears again.
  2. Volvo C202 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-c202/202875849864?hash=item2f3c57cc88:g:WNQAAOSwN8heGuYQ
  3. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/recovery-truck/264590442409?hash=item3d9ad1bfa9:g:4dcAAOSwJRleE4Fo
  4. Not perfect but not a shed or 10 grand either. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1985-Mercedes-Benz-W126-380-SEL-Auto/153783674605?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  5. As a fan of big engined Germanic stuff I approve. I had an E34 540i for years and would like another but that place is currently occupied by a Merc 500 SEC.
  6. A lot of money but looks very nice, good to see an early non GTE Manta as well. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta-Non-Sunroof-B-Series-1-9-Berlinetta-Coupe-Superb-Condition/202863760810?hash=item2f3b9f55aa:g:tEgAAOSwu1Fdqx8f
  7. Assuming it's to the same European port it's an extra 600 mile return wang to Harwich from Newcastle. As someone who also lives in the NE I don't usually use the southern ports.
  8. Possibly not, when I bought mine about a year ago the seller wanted more than that but couldn't get it and settled with me for a big chunk less than that. Private cars seem to go for fraction of classic dealer ones which are advertised at anything up to £30k. I find it difficult to see how some are 5 times as good as mine.
  9. 1965 Bond Equipe GT4S. A more handsome Herald. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1965-BOND-EQUIPE-GT-4S-MEGA-RARE-1-FAMILY-OWNED-BIT-OF-TLC-AND-OFF-YOU-GO/274144123240?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  10. 1982 Chevrolet Chevair, a South African Cavalier MK1. Pretty good but unfortunately pretty pricey as well. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1982-Chevrolet-Chevair-GL-SA-Version-of-Vauxhall-Cavalier-MK/233423167450?hash=item36591adfda:g:5wkAAOSwrpRd52Xh
  11. Nice CLK 320, mine wasn't this clean 10 years ago but still was class act woolly steering aside. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mercedes-CLK-CLK320-3-2-Automatic-Avantgarde-Blue-Coupe-SERVICE-HISTORY/123943082262?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  12. Remainers. 2.8 BMW Z3, been here forever and seen here with it's winter hat and sensible shoes on, Lorinser Mercedes 500 SEC, a very late 2018 arrival on NYE, pretty much unplanned. Currently garaged while the gritters are out to play and wanting a cam chain, tyres. etc. I was pleased it passed it's test with no advisories , it's shown here after a lot of polishing to get it looking like this, it's not always so glamorous Out Porsche 944 2.7, Bought late 2017, sold at a small loss in May but financially that was good, it wanted a fortune spending on it and I never warmed to it. Faithful BMW 530d. Bought for £500 as a stop gap in 2015 and sold for £200 in February with 269000. a cracked exhaust manifold, knackered tyres and 6 weeks test. No one was more surprised than me when it's new keeper got it MOT'd! In. Mercedes E320cdi bought on AS in February. This is reason the 530d finally went, an excellent distance car I aim to keep to keep a good while though my eldest son has other ideas. Of the 8000 miles it's covered with us he's done about 2500 and says the only thing about it he doesn't prefer to his comparable miles/age Honda Accord diesel is the mpg.
  13. Set of Mercedes SLK R170 staggered alloys with legal tyres. 3 ditchfinders, 1 ,Pirelli, all on about 2mm and hold air. 2 of 7x16 37ET, wearing 205 55 16's, 2 of 8x16 30ET wearing 225 50 16's. Probably suitable refurb or winter beater, assume will fit C class etc similar year. Also a pair of 195 65 15 Profil Wintermaxx (me neither) M+S winter tyres on rusty Peugeot 4 stud rims. Approx 7mm tread, they look unused and despite being stored outside for about 6 years they look good and are still holding air. I'll check the DOT code if anyone is interested. Collection from TS10 evenings or weekends TS6 daytime or delivery possible Teesside/Tyneside when I'm headed your way. No couriers, life's too short.
  14. Easy for me, a large, light, dry, secure, workshop/garage with power.
  15. On my 2000 320 CLK the fuel lines rotted and leaked where the rear passenger footwell ended and the pipes did a 90 upward. I did a temporary bodge until I dropped the tank to do the brake pipes.
