Re: How do you find out the year your car was manufactured

You take the 2 letters before the numbers from the chassis number.

Example; WFOAXXGABAFM12345 The manufacture code is FM which translates to March 1985.

Re: Sunroof - What Can Happen

Edited to add that it’s on eBay and they want £3k. Twice that will buy you a very tidy example…. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265734247209?hash=item3ddefed329:g:wCIAAOSw9X9iphW8 Low mileage or not I would rather buy this for £6k https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/134146773667?hash=item1f3bc552a3:g:8hoAAOSwwV...

Re: Sunroof - What Can Happen

Judging by the pics, I think £1200 was good :lol: Most owners/sellers want too much for their cars now :(

There was an XR4i at a show on Sunday, average condition and the owner wanted £11k :o

With current prices it was worth £5k all day long, a few years ago half that.

Re: Window winder handles

You would think 12 o'clock when closed would be good, but they were probably just put on in any position.

As mentioned above both doors have to be the same :cool:

Hi Andrew,
No it's a later one than that, not too sure on BMW facts, but after a search it's a E60 M5.

Re: I dropped my biscuit in my tea .

Soon the Capri will be worth more as parts then just the car :?: It's good that these items are still available and at least with bids you can choose your limit, but still not cheap. The RS wheels are great and you can't beat nice clear stampings, so many lose that when refurbed. Even so for that p...
