  1. Must be around that time, I remember the Transatlantic trophy been cancelled at Mallory Park, due to snow.
  2. Ahhh yes I remember the square well as it is in the photo. The BMW is Inverness registered, so likely to have been sold by Calterdon.

    I considered one - but due to reports similar to those found in this thread I decided against it. Instead I bought the X5 3.0i. All I can say is that some of the issues are the same as they are very much the same underneath. Electrical issues certainly are a bugbear, rear air bags and BM54 module. Even though mine is only a straight six the mpg is around 16 - 24mpg. The V* version from BMW is around 8 - 14mpg. Old 4x4s of the era, by the time we get hold of them will have been neglected and maintained only by distress. This of course leads to some of the issues then encounte
  4. Ok, so let me think; 1 pot Several mopeds - mainly SS50s 2 pot DAF 33 Fiat Twinair Punto 3 pot I've driven several 4 pots missing a pot at the time. I have had my paws round a small number of 3 pots including the Daihatsu type thing and the later BMW engine (yuk). 4 pot Many, including the boxer Alfa engine; V4 Fords; VW including Karmann Ghia. 5 pot I once had an Audi 100 2.2 Avant. A great engine. 6 pot A good number of BMWs including 3 on fleet all with 6 pots under the bonnet. BMW M1 - yes really. E type 6 pot. D series turbo and none turbo
  5. May I ask what these are going for now in a similar condition to the photo?
  6. I love the look of the BBS style wheels. But, having got an E30 with them on, the downside is keeping the buggers clean.
  7. The majority I have seen all have black satin sills. Even if they have factory sill covers on, beneath them they are satin black.
  8. Currently 6 - all set and ready to go - but only 1 taxed. The one on the road does the least miles per gallon....
  9. The above work previously mentioned was joined by a new viscous fan coupling, before I got my car back today. I know these cars are expensive - but I think even the specialist repairers see an X5 and add noughts to the bill....
  10. Unfortunately not. I sold off all my meccano back in 2000 at Ingliston toy swap meet. There was a set 10 as well with the multikits. There are something sin life you regret doing - yep this is one of mine.....
  11. Hi Kiltox Don't know how yours is getting on but mine has now developed a couple more leaks. Not from any previous repairs - ohhh no. This time it is the oil filter housing to block gasket and a power steering pipe that have joined forces and decided to pollute the underside of the car. Thankfully no further than the under tray as yet. Another William heading my way.
  12. Looking at the Dinky catalogue reminded me. In the TV times around the launch of the crane multikit, there was a competition to name the bridges pictured. The prize being the crane multikit. I only went and won one. That added to the army and highway kits I already had.
  13. Ahh memories, thank you. I used to have the exact same combination. The cab I found was interchangeable with the TK and I used to to pull the car transporter and the excavator trailer as well, at times. Looking good there, Amishtat.
  14. The laser launcher in the 88 catalogue shows some resemblance to the old CR super booster.
