  • ...know this is probably worst-case senerio, but if you find the same stuff in your oil, you might be looking at a new crankshaft. Pete My site. [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • Hello all, I have an '88 M5 that is being restored and I was wondering if anyone here knew what the stock spring rate was? The previous owner used it as a track car and the ride is just too stiff right now. I'd like to soften it up a little for street use. Thanks! Pete

  • Does anyone out there know the whereabouts of the specialist exhaust outfit "Mike the Pipe"? They used to be located in Wallington, Surrey, and fabricated the manifold that is fitted to my Alpina. The front pipes need replacing in order to pass the MOT, but they (Mike the Pipe) seem to have disappeared. Can anybody help? Pete 1983 Alpina B9 3.5 1985 528i

  • It is the annual BMW Drivers' Club indoor show at Castle Donington Racetrack, Leics, open from 10 'til 5. I will be there on the Hampshire Area stand with my Alpina if anyone wants to stop and say hello. Pete 1983 Alpina B9 3.5 1985 528i

  • I don't think so as I am sure that I have seen other "standard" E28s with glass roofs, but they are quite rare, and it wasn't an original fitment on my Alpina, which started life as a 528iSE. Chrome wheel arches are not usually factory fitted and were probably added by a previous owner. Pete
