Oops - I bought another car

If it won`t fit anywhere else, stick it here!

I know - I've spent more time than I care to think of welding E28s in those areas! :lol:

Think this one's OK though :D . I think with a good wash and polish it'll come up as well as your one.

If it's sound there, you have little to lose. It's a right laugh smoking about in an old Beemer, people don't think you're a [email protected] because it's not a custard yellow E36 with chrome rims on it. I was sitting outside a local chippy the other night, when a young fella came out and walked across to his brand spanking new black Astra SRi. He couldn't stop staring at my car! And to think the price of mine would only have paid one monthly repayment on his car (deffo a finance job - I know the guy!). And if mine breaks, I fix it - if his breaks, the local Vauxhall boys write out a cheque for lots of money. Old cars are great.

Well, I just spent all day ripping the gold 525e apart into it's component pieces. It's all so well put together, everything came apart easily, nothing was seized, and most of it fitted into the other car. Fantastic. Planning to get some frames welded up to make the interior into stylish living room furniture. Rather sorry I had to take her apart, but fixing just wasn't an option. Was strangely satisfying to see both e28s parked back to back though.
