Possible the clocks have had it and you need a new set.Try a binnacle test.Also check the loom going into the bootlid for broken wires cause this can cause wierd electrical gremlins in the car

+1

make sure you split the sheath and look inside for broken wires, could also be a loose connector on the back of the clocks.

THANKS GUYS
fingers crossed it is just a loose connection although i have just done a 40 mile trip and it didnt do it once
if it is goosed would it just be a case of finding a doner set and swapping them over or would it be more complicated than that

Yep you'll be able to swap the clocks over from another 6 pot e36. Your mileage will be altered though.

Have you checked the boot wiring yet? I'd put money on that being the problem ;)
