Fauxlice's team

4 members, First Rally, Found a 745i that hasn't run for 6 years, fair to say its not running on all cylinders at the moment and the engine code / MOT fail list were both equally long. The count down is on to getting it running and looking "good" for the rally.

The car has been sat undriven and unloved for 6 years, the tax disk in the window said 2013, for those of you not in to cars, having one sat for 6 years in a corner generally doesn’t do them much good! As I’ve looked over the car, I’ve made a note of as many things as possible that will need to be investigated:
Bonnet latches (has two), both seized
Bonnet catch, found in rear footwell, completely seized,
Rear drivers side suspension spring, snapped… in two places
Handbreak, not working
Rear brakes, not working, pads worn, disks worn
Engine, misfiring on at least 4 cylinders
Engine, Leaking.. everywhere
Tyres, old and cracking
Wing mirror, missing cover
rear BMW badge, missing
front BMW badge, all the paint has come off
Paintwork, lacquer peeling and chipping
No. of paint chips on the bonnet, 1,000,000+
Passenger seat, seized
Electric adjustable steering wheel, seized
gear selector, missing its back casing
rear seat, ripped
rear seat belt buckle, not working
Parking Sensors, not working
Radiator, loose
