Hi there all

Well i finally got the black car back from the sprayers last week, so this weekend thought it would be a good time to give both the cars a good wax and polish and take a few photos whilst the weather was good.

The Black M5 is a 1993 model, with 145k, Calypso red is a 1993 with 130k, its the first time the red ones been out of hibernation since september last year.

Please let us know what you think

Cheers Andy

Very nice mate! Are you happy with the paint job?

Made even better that I can be the first tell you that at least one of the throwing stars is on backwards!! lol
(the two front wheels need swapping over)

See you soon,

Rich

ps. I noticed when you followed me the other week that Bomber has nice bright lights, I assume HID. Is it a special kit to avoid the OBC message? I fancy some of the sparkle.

Hi there all, thanks for the kind comments, glad you like

Steve, they will both be coming down to the upcoming Goat meet, our James will be bringing one of them down for me.

Hi Richard, I'm very happy with the paint job thanks, my sprayer did a very good job with the paintwork. Old bombers got HID's but i still get the OBC message, there is a resistor mod out there somewhere, that i've been meaning to do for ages but havnt had chance.

Ha ha, youve noticed the wheels, James was first to mention it when i swapped the wider rears on a few months ago.

Catch up with you soon mate

Andy

They look fantastic mate - I'll be down as soon as I get some time to examine the black one with a view to getting my M635 paintwork fettled - what exhaust has the black one got on it as the red one sounded epic when I followed you on our spirited drive back to Huddersfield the other week; I had the windows down, stereo off drinking in the barking S38-ness :biggrinbounce:

Say hi to James :)

Great pics Andy and James .......... I started smiling as soon as I scrolled down and saw the very first pic !

Meanwhile those front tyres on MBA don't look like they are directional , so ( as Bondy says ) you should be able to simply swap the front wheels from one side to the other ............ pia when you have directional tyres and the covers on the wrong sides !

Hi there

Thanks for the kind comments, glad you like, Its hard to believe MBA was bought on a ebay whim as a track car, its far too good for that now!!

David, i will try my best to get them swapped over before me and james come down next weekend, were really looking forward to the trip down, were booked into the Mill Hill hotel in Sudbury for friday and saturday evening, god knows what its like :)

Kevin, we are going to try and get over to you one night this next week for a pint and to say hello, the exhaust on the red one is a straight through from the cats back, the only silencer it has (hasnt!!!!) is two tiny conical cherry bombs which are about 10" long each, its a bit noisy, the black ones just the standard BMW item.

David L, these were the mirrors the car came with, i think they are the correct ones for the late model year, the sport mirrors on the calpso car are genuine LHD E34 touring mirrors, i bought them from Gaydon BMW show a few years ago for £200.

Best regards AndyH
