It might be useful to let us know on here what the issues are, and allows more people to be able to help?

I meet Paul on Sunday and he explained that he had just bought the car about 3 weeks ago and that it had a number of issues that he wanted sorting.
I think what he is after is a local indy in his area he could go to like I have here in Teesside to help him go in the right direction in sorting the car out.
One issue was throttle response, which after the car being in storage for a long time could be just something as simple as a sticking throttle cable. Replace or lubricate.
I did tell him that most of the solutions his issues would be somewhere on this forum.
Hopefully Paul will come back with more details.

Was going to recommend Newhall BMW. I am based near Chesterfield and take my S54 and my 5 series to Sean at Newhall. Took my 5 series there last Monday and there was a silver S50 with him.
