    Rough Idle Diagnosis

    I had nearly this exact same problem description. It was a vacuum leak. There was a good crack on my valve cover. Highly recommend you find someone with a smoke machine. I spent months with the problem, then a mate found the crack (it was a large crack...) in 5 minutes.

    Potential 1989 B11 Alpina

    Aaannnnnddddd she's legal. Few minor issues to sort but she's all legal. And clean. And registered. And ready for it's first outing tomorrow 😂. Though having the "check engine light" come on at random intervals. I keep checking, the engine is still there and running.... not sure what's up with that lol. Oil is good and clean, all fluids topped up. New wiper blades and a couple other things. Starts and runs first time, the slight misfire at idle is getting better, so I think a good cruise on Christmas Day to Dunedin and back, change the oil, go right over it then start looking at what needs replaced.

    Damaged M3 at Turners

    Sad thing is that this car was registered here in April of this year.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    So you gotta ask yourself, was it Wurth the effort??

    I will also say, your cold start idle sounds exactly like my 523i before i redid the vanos on it. issue was gone after that

    it's all part of his schtick. not to be taken seriously.

    e60 M5

    I struggle to believe that he bought that car without investigating the common issues or the costs to repair them beforehand, if its true then it was just stupid. I also can't comprehend why he decided it was a good idea to drive it to the mechanic in the state it was in, a towtruck would have cost less than the tank of gas.

    washer scum still happens here. My Mini had scum in the lines the other day, despite having all new tank/lines/pump/jets recently, and using tap water and wurth washer additive.

    we have soft water in Wellington, so if it's not enough to move here for the AWESOME weather, there's the water too! 😎

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    I always use Wurth screenwash additive, but i use raw (untreated) water so its probably some kind of toxic algae bloom!!

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    I'll bet the scum buildup is from people using dishwashing fluid, or plain water.

    E28 car or parts needed

    I have some long overdue work to do to my trusty daily. It's a manual 525e circa 1987 in citrusblau. Not so worried about external colour matching but the interior is blue, and I'd prefer to avoid doing a wholesale interior change... then again, most of it's coming out so I'd look at it. Mechanicals are mostly all great. I need body and interior parts. Namely: Straight bonnet Rust free sunroof Drivers doorcard A good dash would be awesome but, then I'd quite like it if my hair would grow back too. #hendentures Gear lever mechanism complete. I understand that Z3 ones work? Full carpet set Headlining Tail lights Bonus points: Mesh rims would be a bonus (can't remember the type no.). Bilstein suspension Medium case LSD Drivers lights Bigger brakes that will fit and still allow a range of rims I need to 'panel and paint' the car so the bonus items may not make the budget and are less of a priority If you have a rust free, (or close to it) car with mechanical issues i.e. bad motor/box etc.. that has a nice interior I'd readily look at that. I'm in Dunedin too btw. Hit me up. Cheers, Tom

    I watched this and thought that this is normal for a European car at over 100,000 miles with dubious service history.

    Rough Idle Diagnosis

    well i started the car - it is now maybe a 5 out of 10 - instead of a 1 out of 10 Now i will patiently await the new boots - and pray that RTV doesn't magically jump into the intake manifold lol

    Whatever works man, ain't no judging here. Just as long as it will be replaced and isn't a permanent fix lol.

    Rough Idle Diagnosis

    I thought i would upload my recent addition of Temporary Fix / Hack Sins commited, since i still need to drive this car daily - and the start idle is ROUGH, cause the tear in the boot is pretty severe Going to be waiting another week or two before the new boots arrive and other various parts from overseas There was no easy way of doing this, and no way to avoid the mess - After cleaning it up with some wax and grease remover - i went to town with some super RTV Wish me luck Don't judge me

    You can still epoxy the plates on if you ever want to add them.
  26. As stated I have a motor including all ancillaries for sale as it's now surplus to requirements. I was planning to turbocharge and use on either my e46 coupe or my e30 Project car but have chosen a different route. Came out of my e39 that got rear ended 2 years ago and has been sitting for like a year now in my shop. Open to offers because I need some money for more parts . Has done 120 odd ks. Can't exactly remember mileage but it was not more than 130 ks Pick up in Glenfield. Has all coils etc and ecu and loom . 02102916373
