JayPee's kwality* moters......

Recommended Posts

Howdy! A long time member and recent contributor on the former @320touring W124 thread. (also his brother). 

I have decided to start my own wee thread to enlighten you with the joys of my automobiles. 

Currently I am in possession of:

E30 316i '316328' 

E30 325i Touring '335' shared with @320touring

Polo diesel (veg) formerly @davehedgehog31

W124 300d (also veg). 

Today was a good day in reference to the 316328. 

After over a year off the road due to me being a twat and blowing a spark plug out of the head, this went in for it's MOT.  



Pleased to say, it's a pass! IMG_20201007_160347.thumb.jpg.e35f8caf3fb21ba68f6894346ce08ba9.jpg

A couple of minor advisory points (brake pipe, and brake wear light on, (has different brakes), but all good! 

Why do I refer to it as the 316328, I hear no one ask..... Well, it used to be a 316 Auto, now it has a 2.8 M52 from an e36 in it. Will post more details later. 

Other than this, the 335 needs a head gasket, the Merc is about ready for an MOT, and the much maligned Polo continues to take everything that I throw at it. 

Cheers. Jp

Has the BMW still got rhe chemical metal repair on the tank from SF16? (or was that a different car? It was mostly dark and every time I came out to see you I'd had a few more cans...) 

Alas, it is indeed the same car, tank eventually got replaced when I got home safely*

      Hard to believe this is 30 years old 

      1950 wants its buses back ☺

      Got no idea if I've done this right but a few people have asked to see my cars so thought I'd upload some photos!
      I got the Peugeot when I was 12 and have had it for 4 years now. The bodywork is awful but it has an MOT and that's all that counts! It was featured in a book called My Cool Convertible which features plenty of other shite cars too. Think it was chosen as most 304s have been restored to a high quality whereas mine hasn't
      My Renault 5 has 23,500 on the clock and is an automatic but drives well and still smells like new inside! The only decent photo I have of it is next to the Mk1 Fiesta which unfortunately isn't mine!
