  1. I'm disappointed I wasn't quick enough to see this in person when Tickman et al collected that 4 post lift from you. We just rendezvoused with them on the road outside. However, I also didn't realise how close you are. For some reason I thought you were down in the borders... Top work as always though!
  2. Woof, those are a bit too bling for my taste! Just some that match the spare would be nice.
  3. Not really much to misunderstand! I'm just considering whether to buy those other wheels. They're 15" and have winter tyres, so are appealing. I'm just not sure how shit they'd look on a black E36.
  4. Indeed. The main issue is that I'm in a 2nd floor flat and have nowhere to keep wheels (other than in my spare room). I know plenty of people nearby with units, but I'm not sure I'd get the wheels to one of them instantly. I mean, if I were to put the 15s on immediately I'd still have the 16" E46 wheels to store somewhere (and potentially sell).
  5. I find myself debating whether to go down to Blantyre to get these: https://www.gumtree.com/p/wheel-rims-tyres/full-set-of-bmw-15-alloys-winter-tyres-hankook-continental-wheels-/1417431925 They're 15" BMW wheels with 205/60/R15 winter tyres, for £120. Squishy. Surely they can't look any worse than the E46 wheels currently on it. They do look like they're from a fairly modrin one, the offset could be all to pot though.
  6. "Let's go live to Ollie Williams, and see what the weather is like at the peak of Glen Shee. Ollie?" "Thanks Ollie"
  7. Genuine barn find m9. Aha, but what are those? Yes, proper rectangular mirrors rather than the M3 replica mirrors. I picked these up on Thursday, fitted them yesterday when they were still Boston Green, then painted the caps today: Just a few coats of generic gloss black, plus a few coats of lacquer. Sorted. These even work properly on the switch and everything. My acreage of mirror glass has basically doubled with these. The M3 replica mirrors were actually electric but the wiring didn't have plugs on the end, and were instead shoved down the back of the door cards. I shake my head at whoever did that. The less said about the self tappers holding them on, the better. Land Rover things also occurred today. It fired up and drove under its own power for the first time in about 30 years. Once it was running it was properly quiet, and on restarting the second time took all of half a crank of starter to fire. It got reversed all the way to the back of the shed, and we spent the afternoon drilling rivets out of the rear tub. Look, video proof of it running!
  8. Was it going to be a thread about short-term memory loss?
  9. Spent a few hours at the brothers touring's unit yesterday evening, along with a few other Scotoshiters. We managed to bring the lighter socket in the 323 back to life. It wasn't the wiring. The socket itself was absolutely minging, so the centre pin wasn't making contact. Some scraping with sandpaper and a small flathead screwdriver saw functionality restored. I'm also picking up a pair of standard mirrors this evening. They've got Boston Green caps on them, but a quick coat of generic gloss black will have them sorted in no time. Part of me is tempted to just fit them, then take the caps off and paint them later, when I have somewhere to do it. The M3 mirrors really are awful. While they may look good to some, the functionality of them leaves something to be desired. While I'm here: BUY MORE TICKETS FOR THE ALFA PLZ. I want to get shot of it and buy something utilitarian.
  10. I can say from personal experience that M3 style mirrors are complete wank for actually seeing anything, though. I'll be picking up a pair of standard mirrors for my E36 this evening.
  11. I'd love to do that. What a holiday! Cruising through beautiful scenery with all the luggage space you'd ever need. Brilliant.
  12. If I had a unit, that's exactly the sort of crap I'd buy and slowly work on getting running again, with something idiotic like a drivetrain out of a Fiesta 1.1, or an XUD.
  13. I take no issue with the engine swap. However, those wheels are criminally terrible.
  14. It's even more ripe than I first suspected! There's something very deadpan about the way you just quietly grab that pick-axe and start bashing holes in things. It gets me laughing every time.
