High all, sorry for not posting much lately, been really busy.
Um, y'know how I said I'd keep that 328i for more than 8 minutes? Well, yeah, I might've sold it a bit.
Anyhow, I've finally got the car I've been meaning to get for a long time.
I initially was looking for an E39 B10 4.6 but I just couldn't find a decent enough one in the spec I wanted. And a decent one costs £drybumrape.
After contemplating another 540i and wondering which of my organs I could possibly do without while pretending I could afford an E39 M5 (can you tell I wanted another v8?) I stumbled across this beauty advertised for a very resonable £slightlymorelubebutstillprisonrules.
It had a couple of issues but the price more than took these into account and after a swift look over by my mate who was visiting his family where the car was based (i know, the chances..) he said it was well worth the money despite the blowing exhaust, possible vacuum leak, needing a bit of welding and typical E34 shimmy.
After asking the seller every question I could think of to ensure the car was a) genuine and b) genuine, I ripped open the mattress and bought the old gal home.
The amount of money spent on this car in the past is very comforting, including a full engine rebuild at a cost of over £4000- and £1800 of paint, both within the last 8k miles and I cant wait to get stuck in and make her even tidier.
Anyhoo, here's some pics, feel free to ask questions:
