Not been here for some time, a few health problems (pancreatic C) which have rendered my flying career a close which is gutting......... Got shot of the old E34 520i and bought back my E46 323ci, but it being non practical for our little one we had to sell again (Which I still regret).
In its place we bought an Alfa 156 1.9JTDm (140), had one in the past and it was a diamond, but this one has been nothing but an absolute mare, I have spend a good wedge getting it bang on but I still hate the car, it really has left a sour after taste.
Anyway, I am on the look for its replacement in the guise of a low mileage E39 525d, I am not power hungry I just love anything with a 6 pot sludge lump and the E39 fits the bill for me personally, ideally I want a manual, had the auto in the 323 and I yearned for control (some may relate when it comes to a 16 year old ZF-19 tranny)
Anyway, I hope you guys are all well, maybe spend some more time here as time goes on, shall probably be lingering in the shadows.
