Re: frontend friday :)

Hi Bobbo, yes that is Paul's car, but the photo is from a few years ago. Very shiny, very nice car.

The new owner is somewhere no doubt!

Re: 1979 world land speed record M1 turns up!

Thanks Bobbo, that's cool, I like that car a lot. Very interesting story too. I reckon it looks better in the current pics, just black and covered in dust, rather than with the sponsor stickers all over it, but I think that bodywork makeover is amazing, even more so given it was built that way in 19...

Re: Time to introduce my car

Gday mate Welcome, the car looks very good. That repair list is a good bunch of manageable items which you can get to in the short & longer term. In the meantime you can enjoy driving the car. What's broken about the headlights? Just cracked glass or do they not work? And are they the new wheels in ...

Re: Mystery Speaker Pods?

I don't think they all had a grille across the top, only the section at the sides. That top section is just a solid piece on mine. Interestingly, the side grilles on mine are positioned on the outside edges closest to the C pillar, whereas yours appear to be on the inside edge at the centre of the c...

Hi Mamod I'm up for a drive sometime, dunno when though sorry. Next few weeks & up to Christmas are looking busy so don't know when to suggest something, but I'll keep thinking on it.

Re: New Pioneer 6x4" Speakers on the market

They do look nice, they don't seem ridiculously pricey, and you can't really go wrong with Pioneer. Obviously depending on how flash your head unit is will impact the quality of the sound they put out. Certainly anything will be better than what came stock, so if you're in the market for new speaker...

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Interesting find Mamod, and it's developed into a very interesting thread too. $20K seems way too much to me, certainly here in the Australian market. Based on the pics & info it does look like it's a car that has been appreciated and valued by its owner, but it's asking price may depend on how stur...

Re: Legends of the Autobahn pix

Thanks for sharing the pics Bobbo. That's a very impressive array of cars. The new 8 Series and the i8 Roadster are impressive enough, but I can't imagine a show here in Australia that could also include an M1, a Z1 and a Z8 all at the same time.

That's a great looking car mate, well done. It sounds like a good find given how low the mileage is.

It'll look stunning with the Style 42s. Keep the pics coming.

Good stuff mate. I think the transformation between the first pic on page 1 of this thread and where you are now is a credit to you, and that car is lucky to have you! =D>

Now just remember to take care when parking nose-in at kerbs & gutters, and making your way up & down driveways. 8)

Very sorry to see this, but good to know it all seems repairable. I know from your posts how much you value this car, so I've no doubt it was gut wrenching for you when this incident happened.
