There's one coming from the rocker cover, it 't's off onto the inlet manifold and goes onto the breather pot and intake hose for the turbo (if all the OE kit is still under the bonnet)

This is how the 5 looks now  :(

i have taken it off the road as it has now ran out of tax but am planning to get a few jobs done before putting it back on the road i will post pics az and when jobs get done, this is my new car please dont laugh too much  :lol:

i only paid 250 for it, 1 lady owner from new and it runs on fresh air, i must add its totally diffrent from driving the 5 its bouncing all over on its soft suspension at least it makes it over pot holes without crippling me and gets me to work on time, them bumpers are going too need some attention though!

Its been a while since i updated my thread so this is how things are at the minute. I  have decided to take the 5 off the road for this year as i am going to get it mint for a respray at the begining of next year and use it for summer only. So this is what i have done upto yet, took bumpers and skirts and arches off and found this




  :(  i have got some new sills just waiting for them to be fitted, i have replaced disks and pads and rear wheel bearings and started painting underseal everywere, the only place i can see any rust is on the sills and the rear bumper mounts wich i have had a go at myself lol

.
pic of rusty rear disk





i am going to get the sills fitted soon hopefully and sort the hinges out, thats it for now i will try and get some more pics at the weekend  :D

yeh they look like brand new mate colour looks perfecto!!!! its a pain sometimes waiting for other people to do stuff for you ,just make sure when your doin the outer sills the inners arent knackered too,there was a guy on ebay selling laser cut inner sills for 20 bucks a side which is very reasonable,well keep up the good work and the photos rolling  :D
