  1. 37.5K mile Peugeot 406, seems to have had the same owner from nearly new until recently, clean MOT history too, and I think is genuine. If anyone on here buys this please let me know, I'd be interested in it at a later date for sure: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/849457749669427/?referralSurface=messenger_lightspeed_banner&referralCode=messenger_banner
  2. Maybe get in touch and see if the owner would ever sell the car, he may just say no. If they say yes I am sure someone on the forum would take the car on.
  3. That’s a pity, the owner seemed to be an enthusiast, the car was featured in a magazine. Are you nearby the garage it’s abandoned at?
  4. Thanks for people’s help on this, managed to get the bits I wanted fitted and painted a couple weeks ago, new headlights fitted at the same time. The BMW badge has since been put on again!
  5. I’ve done nearly 2000 miles in this now! Glad I ended up buying the car as some parts that were due to be fitted to my BMW E39 early this month have only just turned up. The cars still waiting at a bodyshop getting some work done. Drove all around Skye a few weekends back but didn’t take many pictures of the car, it’s still a bit scruffy for my liking and I’ve resisted spending any money improving the car, even if the potentials there. Will have to think about selling in the coming weeks to pay the bodyshop for work on the E39 and free up space. I’d be tempted to try another at some point though, however I’d maybe get a Golf mk5 GTI 2.0 TFSI of the same age in solid red.
  6. This is a 5 min walk from me, but I’m not brave enough to spend actual money on it. If anyone wants the car let me know, it’s got great potential and only had 2 owners, e300 diesel auto https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/mercedes-benz-300d-e-class-w124/1437317975?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_ios&utm_medium=social&utm_source=ios_social
  7. BMW E39 turbine wheels, from a 1996-2003 5 series, £90 BMW E34 BBS alloys, 5 stud, from late 80s/early 90s 5 series, £130 VW T4 steel wheels, 5x112 so fit other VAG cars, Caddy’s etc, £35 Volvo 340/360 alloy wheels, 4x100 I think, 4 stud, £25 Collection Aviemore area but could look into courier. Thanks
  8. Thank you, I was wondering how to get the white bits of the seats clean! I don’t think I’ll get it remapped, it has an performance air filter and may already be mapped, but since it’s not gonna be a keeper won’t be spending money on things like that just now.
  9. They already are! Turned on the 6CD changer and they played at full blast. I was very surprised they were manual in the back aswell but one thing less to go wrong.
  10. Before, it was actually worse then it looks After, still not great but gave myself an hour and a bit to do what I could in the time. Freebies Plus a few pictures of the outside as I quite like the way it looks
  11. I admit the car was a bit of a red flag. Problem today is whilst cleaning it the radio stays on and let’s put a horrible pulsating noise through the whole car every so often. Should I start it and see if that resets things. Locking and unlocking central locking made no difference
  12. I think it’s because the car was registered June 2006, had it been a couple months earlier in 2006 would maybe have been less £
  13. That blue would’ve been my choice on one of these aswell but the silver does at least give the car more of a sleeper’ look. Tax looks like £330 a year, ouch! Guess £28 a month is bearable given it’ll only be two months - the same site I just used to check the tax helpfully pointed out 61 days of MOT!
  14. Thank you for the encouragement! Will take some better photos tomorrow depending on the weather
