    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    AWESOME! Look forward to seeing you at some events soon.
  3. What a pain. Any other user friendly apps with hardware that aren't as pricey but have the same perks? Otherwise I'll bite the bullet and go with Carly. I suppose it's not too expensive. Sorry for going off topic @Species 8472

    N52 starter

    Yea we were gunna start with the starter. Was just wondering about the battery and I'll see what he got. Struggling to find a suitable 2nd hand starter at the moment.

    Drove my new to me, moderately tickled, 335i back from Hamilton. Stoked to be back in a BMW, such a nice car to drive. Bloody good at passing too 😅

    N52 starter

    Don't need OEM (Varta) although they are the best battery out there. Just one the same size - DIN 63/66/92 - whatever it has. AA or Hella Endurent batteries are probably the next best to OEM. You still need to diagnose that the starter is infact faulty though. Does sound like it though - I have been there with these at work before. Plenum needs removing to access the starter.

    Couple of Rides spotted recently :-)

    Possibly my favorite looking BMW of all time. 1000% quirk. So good.

    Assorted M3 / M5 Parts

    I'm more than 2 years late, should check in there more often. Is the E46 6.5" Speaker Brackets still available? I had no idea these products exist.

    Karter 16's E46 M3 Journal

    I haven't actually tested that yet, but next time I drive the car I'll do an assessment and report back.
  12. Hi guys, Just wondering if there is anyone down here in Christchurch with an M3 or M5 that I would be able to use as a wedding car. I am ideally after 2 but I will take what ever I can get. Our wedding is the 1st of December and I just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in helping me out. Of course you will be paid for your time and the use of your car. I currently own an E92 335i and really appreciate the greatness of an M car, which is why I would love to have them as my wedding cars. Anyone who is interested can call me on 0273471591 or message me on here. Cheers, Sam

    E39 M5 for 20k

    If this is the car I saw coming down the gorge on SH1 this morning (at around 8:30ish) then kudos and well done... it's a bluddy good looking unit! (snd if it isn't - kudos and well done... it's a bluddy good looking unit!).
  19. It used to be a one-off fee, then earlier this year they changed to a subscription based system, not retrospectively though.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    I agree. I sold my last one with some reluctance but was keen to move into something a little more modern. I tried an e92 M3, e60 M5, even branched out and looked at a 996 911. Kind of considered a F10 M5 but they’re so much bigger. I kept coming back to the e39. The V8 is just so nice day to day. They just got everything so right (imho) and you’re right, they are stunning to look at.

    Did your radio (specifically AM) reception improve without the tints?

    E39 M5 for 20k

    I do get it (regarding having another stint in E39 M5 ownership) - seems like a pretty common phenomenon globally). Probably like a few on our board here, I have had the privilege of driving a few different ///M cars - including some newer machinery that put out some serious power. However, I don’t think I have ever driven / owned a vehicle like the E39 M5 which is an all -round absolute pleasure to drive. Totally intoxicating. I love the look of BMW coupes, but this is a stunning car to look at too. Rock star colour too man! In terms of driving them as a weekend toy, I can relate to that!!

    1999 BMW Z M Coupe

    No the car. It is genuine. Its in nice condition, not a show pony but extremly useable. Who ever purchases will.not regret.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    I don’t think I’ll daily it. More of a weekend toy.
