  1. That’s interesting, in my experience they are gutless and reluctant to rev, but that was the 12 valve one
  2. I once watched as a man pulled up in a 750i, opened the door and empty all the piss out of his catheter bag onto the floor at Tibshelf. Fantastic

    Stance hilarity

    I’ve got nowt against ride height adjustment, my daily is wound down pretty low. However, I’ve fitted wheels and tyres that never contact the body, even with 200l of veg oil in the back. I’ve always thought that air ride was a way to have wide wheels, good fitment, stance and all that shit, while retaining drivability on the road. So why the fuck has the 2 tone W124 been driven with the tyres and wheels rubbing on the body, when they had the option to avoid it when in motion? I know there’s a catalogue of errors here but I can’t get my head around that

    Best window winders ever. There’s something delightfully classy about a non-sporty, worn-in 900
  5. I’m so glad you’re making a good car out of this where I failed to have a working car for most of the time I had it. Broken spring and dead battery maybe a sign the curse is still going, Hope that’s the last of it. Re the handling, I think magazine journos call it safe understeer, not sure I agree

    BMW 320 coupe

    This is all rather exciting
  7. No thanks, they match the shirt too well anyway
  8. Glad the old crate got you home. The driving gloves must've escaped the clearout, where I managed to fill 3 large shopping bags with my gf's assorted crap

    What works?

    How many people with cars that have been faultlessly reliable darent tempt fate and say so on this thread?
  10. I think the only car I’ve been lent was my housemate at the time’s Corsa B Merit when my E30 was in for MOT. I entered a roundabout at a speed roughly equal to what was comfortable for the lowered bm and it just sailed straight on. He called it Howard if I remember right.
  11. A bus yard I walked past in Tokyo

    I see an M3 this colour round Huddersfield sometimes and it looks brilliant
  13. Vans block out a fair bit more light

    I have a stock of SVO to use up, not found any waste oil at a reasonable rate near me

    I used to have a 300td auto, it’d be a pretty close race

    A little update on this, it hasn't seen a drop of diesel since the day I picked it up, and continues to start and drive exactly the same on roughly 95% veg 5% petrol (because winter). Will post a more recent pic when I've bothered to wash it, I'm ashamed to say it has been ever so slightly pineappled. Averaging 63mpg brim to brim mostly kicking its head in. If you wanted to it could easily top 70mpg, but I'd rather keep up with traffic
  18. It’s quite surprising how slow to 60 that bike is, considering the cars that were available at the time
  19. Not sure why but I love these vans. Might have to get an xud turbo one before they all disappear, the twin exhausts look so sporty
  20. Aye it’s a shame the stuff is so sticky and orrible. Sunflower/rapeseed is the way to go if you want to be a tight cunt through winter though, all the soya I’ve got in the shed has been put to one side as it’s turning to yogurt
  21. Heard tales of people getting 45mpg from these slugs. Mine had a rock solid 30mpg average day to day on 100% veg. Was the same colour as yours but a year older. Lovely stately old thing to drive, highlights included taking 3/5ths of a band and most of their gear inc full drum kit to a gig at harewood house, and getting a single divan bed and mattress in the back with the tailgate almost closed. Loved the soft close tailgate and rear interior lights in the pillars. The fuel gauge was fine but the one in the 190D seems to be as tempremental as yours: try sitting in the back seats with the engine running when it shows empty to see if it comes to life. If so it’s a dodgy connection to the top of the tank rather than a failing sender. They are great cars, a rotten rear ARB mount made for the departure of mine, but I think you got a bargain if yours is solid where it counts.
  22. Never noticed that these have the same lights/wipers switchgear arrangement as my Skyline R32 GTR. Every day is a scool day
  23. One 190 is ample thanks
  24. If I lived in Scotland (which I intend to one day) I would be definitely one of your best customers
