Re: Anybody tuning into Amazon; The 'GT' ?

1 hour and 11 mins is a tad too long. A lot of time was spent faffing about but the format is familiar.
It's quite enjoyable to watch.

Re: The value going up?

I've seen a few well cared for examples for sale recently at between £1,000 and £2,000. A red Mk1 820i was up for £1,500 and it was spotless.

Re: YOU DIDNT BUY IT, OH NO, YOUR KIDDING, SURELY, REALLY ??, WTF, WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH IT

I got a good condition used one a couple of years back after I had a little accident in my car. The original one just crumbled away. Luckily that prevented the crash cans from getting bent. The one in the ebay picture is a rear one as the front one is a lot more substantial and has brackets for the ...

Re: New Trailer Project

I wonder if anyone has been behind you and wondering why an 800 has an 07 plate on it only to realise it's a trailer and not someone tailgating you in your Mondeo

Re: Rover rat thing

Mk1 IR fob and sensor required.

The one on the turbo hasn't worked consistently for a few years so I lock it with the key, making sure the immobiliser is on. It used to but even changing batteries and cleaning the contacts didn't seem to help. After the incident last week, I'm hoping that a new fob and sensor will not only activat...

Re: vitesse sport lux

I know a Rover V8 fits in the engine bay of an R8. Fitting a V8 into an 800 should be a doddle compared to that.

The first one I still have (a 1991 820i Special Edition with manual mirrors, sunroof and rear windows albeit with the ruched leather,TWR k...

Re: Kv6 coolant leak

Hi Tony. 18 views and just my reply. It's always difficult with coolant leaks so perhaps no-one has a definitive answer. My Mk1 820 lost a major amount of coolant one day. The engine got very hot. I refilled with water and apart from a very slight drop in level, hasn't done it since. I'm still at a ...
