My Classic 1989 E30 BMW 325i SE

Ongoing diary including video reports and Instagram posts

Follow #BCGBMWE30 on social media Bookmark this page to follow my ongoing series with this car – everything that happens with the ownership of this BMW – one that I’ve owned for the second time. I used to own a blue one just like this back in the 1990s, and it was one of my most missed cars.

Testing out the GTechniq Ceramic GWash car shampoo on the BCG BMW E30 325i SE today – it’s supposed to have superior dirt removal, but also provide a protective coating. I give the dirty bimmer a wash, see how it is to use, and will check in about a week to see if it’s down any better at repelling dirt. And then try the second shampoo that GTechniq has sent to me on a regular basis. Stay tuned to find out how I get on.

18 Jun 2022 – Ford Mustang Long Term Test – Report 7 – FINAL REPORT!

The Ford Mustang has left the building. Okay it was never actually IN the building, it was in the car park outside, and if you’ve recognised that I’ve borrowed that from the famous line ‘Elvis has left the building’ it is of course, very deliberate. Because the gaping whole it’s left in its wake, does indeed feel like space vacated by the presence of a true rock star. Big, brash, the great sounds it made, the sheer magnetism and the charisma of the Mustang, are perfect analogies to the King of Rock and Roll.

Stop ULEZ Expansion To M25 in London!

From September 2023 non-ULEZ-compliant cars will have to pay £12.50 a day

Here’s why its impact will be limited, how it will hurt the poorest the most, why it will kill classic car culture in London, and how to stop it. Urgent action is needed now. This is serious. Share and circulate this video and most importantly tell London’s authorities what you think – do it now, don’t delay! https://haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/cleanair?fbclid=IwAR3UHrpGe1qbc5ejyhbL948WyD4yewTOF6-5LzmBSSayYKgO98gNJZx1fJY

How I Survived Scary Murree Snow Experience [Pakistan Jan 2022]

A terrifying icy near-miss story from my friend in Islamabad right now

Tragically over 20 people died last week while caught in a snowstorm in a holiday mountain resort of Murree in Pakistan last week. Our condolences and thoughts with the loved ones of those lost. My good friend Reza Adil, is holidaying in Islamabad, and actually tried to reach Murree shortly before the worst happened, not realising the disaster that was to unfold. Thankfully he never made it, but not without a terrifying experience for himself and his family members too, on the treacherous icy roads of a barrier-less narrow winding mountain road. Listen to his full story in this video podcast, originally recorded on my Instagram live.
