    [SOLD] OE E63 chrome boot badge.

    As above, a genuine OE chrome E63 boot badge with correct spacing in unopened packaging shown in photos below. Bought for my own E63, but not required as dealer replaced the badge before I collected the car. Plenty of Chinese copies on eBay, but this is not a copy part. £20 posted.

    Plumbing woes

    I woke this morning to see a small brown patch on the Living room ceiling below the Hot Water Cylinder located along with a conventional boiler in the spare bedroom upstairs. I had visions of a burst pipe in the loft but no, nothing so easy. The heating element within the cylinder has corroded...

    Apple Mac Mini Question

    My son in law gave me an Apple Mini Mac for Christmas knowing my Windows PC 10 is flagging after 7 years. I have never been a fan of either Apple products or the Mac OS, so I've downloaded Windows 10 ISO on a USB drive and its in the process of being partitioned. The Mini Mac has a 2Tb SSD and...

    W212 E63 DIY Rear brake pad change

    After receiving my Powerstop Z16 Ceramic brake pads from Rock Auto in the US in record time (6 days) I fitted them this morning. The o/s/r has the wear sensor so tackled that one first. Had to disconnect the wear sensor from the back of the caliper first, then knocked the pins through and...

    Cleaning the wheel hubs on the E63

    Reading a recent post by daveenty has inspired me to start a few outstanding jobs that need doing to the E63. The first of which was to clean up the rusting and manky looking hubs and repaint them with Smooth silver Hammerite paint. I would point out I would have preferred to use a rattle can...

    Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 5 tyre availability.

    Just ordered a pair for the rear of the E63, and it seems both the price, and the availability of the size I require 285x30x19 is in question. Firstly, the price has risen with most suppliers in the last 6 months or so by up to £50 a tyre. Around January they were roughly £155 each, now, if you...

    Fire Opal C63...........what a sound!

    Before I continue, let me just say I love the sound of my 5.5 Biturbo with the exhaust modded. But this evening I was locking up my car when a 12 plate Fire Opal C63 stopped outside my house for a traffic light further down the road. When he took off, he wasn't sparing the horses and by God...

    W212 E63 Front brake pad DIY change.

    Having bought the pads last year for my E63, I thought it time to change them over, so along with a few photos, here is my DIY guide to change them. Probably took around an hour and a half, most of which was jacking up the car, making it safe to work on, and cleaning the inside of the wheels...

    My niece asked if I would drive her to her wedding that took place today, in the E63. More than happy to take her and its the second time I've used my car as the one to take the bride. The last time was for my daughter in the E55 5 years ago. Anyway, a beautiful day day in a lovely setting. A...

    Idiot in a BMW M140

    I was extremely close to a collision today thanks to an impatient tool driving an M140.
