I'll break my silence now as I won the auction for these.
I'm told these dampers were originally bought from Jesse. He does not have dampers for sale any more. Told me he's hoping to get more at the end of the year but I wasn't prepared to chance that.
Cheers for the above posts- was thinking for these parts specifically.
I don't have any immediate plans for such stuff but figure next time the dampers need a refurb could be ideal. Would be curious as to what rear suspension components are worth replacing outwith the springs and shocks too.
Refreshing this as the link here is now expired.
Would anyone be able to list the parts numbers for a full suspension refresh as a handy guide please?
The RPD website is a bit of a pig to try and filter through these days.
It's not rude but it's not unreasonable to debate the merits of some of the suggestions.
What are the chances of the water pump failing before the next auxiliary belt change? I would expect to comfortably get 8 years out of a water pump. If it ends up needing replaced before then, which is...
Even with a dephaser and water pump that are only on around 36k miles?
I've had my fair share of preventative maintenance over the years in the form of thousands of pounds across a few cars but even so that seems excessive to expect to replace them every 5 years on so few miles surely? There...
Trophy is due its second cambelt in my ownership in the next month. What else should I get replaced that may be original that can only be done when the cambelt is coming off?

I had my Trophy alongside an e39 M5 (epic car) for about 2 years.
I do miss not having a genuinely quick (rather than nippy) car but it's not the end of the world.
Having both was definitely the ideal scenario.
Any common or likely issues that could cause this?
This becomes more inconsistent in the last quarter of a tank where it can vary quite a bit. Fuel light can come on way earlier than it should given the needle position.
First sign of a problem was a while ago now when I'd park the car after...
This sound is a weird one, only notice it at slow speed, just before stopping really.
Definitely to do with the brakes themselves and not rotation though as if I tap the pedal repeatedly at <5mph it will make the sound with every pedal press.
Will get these fitted and take it from there...
Wouldn't be the first time there's been an odd part discrepancy. The front anti-roll bar brackets were a mini saga for me.
Ended up getting them here- https://www.onlinecarparts.co.uk/metalcaucho-8538068.html
Cheap shit and neither even matched each other for size, one managed to...
