Hi, I'm new to this forum, but have several BMWs over the years and do most of the work myself. I was a Mechanic when I left school but specialised in air cooled Volkswagen restorations which is where I learned how to weld tin foil. (hence I now hate these cars!) I currently own a 2002 E65 745, and I love it, but I'm thinking of upgrading/moving sideways to a deisel 5 or 7. I hope to give as much as I get from the site but maybe thats optimistic.
