Hiya all :-) e-34 525i se auto '89
Well I thought it was about time I joined hehe, have been around this site and forums for aaaaages :-)
I will post some pics soon. . .
I have an '89 525i se auto that I have owned for some years now, Those of you that have old Performance BMW Magaizes will be able to find my 4 page spread in the Dec 2004 edition :-)
I am having a few problems with it of late (posted in another thread) but I am hoping to be put on the right track
Have any of you noticed that when you have sent your car in to a garage for any reason that it never quite comes back the same as when it went in ? do you notice a new little dent somewhere, or a scratch or scuff ? or am I just unlucky ?
I had a windscreen replaced, and with our bonnets opening the 'other' way they put in a bar incase of a weak bonnet stay but when they forget about the bar and go to shut the bonnet you get 2 little dents in the bonnet from the inside :-(
after a service I have had the car back with scuffs and scratches on the wings around the engine bay where mechanics have obviously had tools in their pockets, Ive had the paint scraped off the calipers when having brake pads replaced, Ive had a tyre fitter jacking the car up by the bodykit cracking it all
I had a set of the new 7 series alloys which are big solid things, but a pothole in the city centre destroyed a front one, cracked it completely, wrote off the tyre, cracked the suspension balljoints and bent a control arm, but the council did not pay out
Sometimes it is a pain to appreciate your own car sometimes
