    I know who HOWDEN Ganley is, I even shook his hand at the festival. However, this thread is called HOWARD Ganley, it is he whom I do not know...

    Too right... Meanwhile those sitting on E30 M3 might have earned a good three to four.... hundred dollars per year, as long as they didn't drive it. Proof for those who need it what an awesome investment cars are.

    I've unfortunately had to spend the last 4 days getting my car started again after a VANOS solenoid crapped itself. Details in this thread but it involved a new VANOS unit (thanks Mark!) and taking the exhaust cam out so I had to re-time the entire lot (again). The solenoid that failed was the only part I couldn't clean/repair when I did my VANOS overhaul about a year ago (see this thread). Now I have the task of cleaning my VANOS unit up and getting it fixed and bench tested. Car is humming now and no error codes but I've not stressed the engine yet and won't do so until I can get a new chain guide because I broke mine (it was very, very brittle - like the e46 ones that go boom). I've ordered the part. On a happier note my pile of parts is building up and this lot arrived from Amazon yesterday. Eibach Pro Plus kit matched to my Bilstein B6 shocks (the combo sells as the B12 kit direct from Bilstein). Will lower the car by 25mm up front and 15mm at the rear but I'm going to use spring pads to push the rear back up when I'm using my 18" wheels (i.e. most of the time). Sway bars F/R are 26mm/24mm and adjustable (stock is 23/20 fixed). Not bad for less than NZ$190 eh? See here for the crazy details.

    Work to begin shortly on a twin E46 M3 Touring. All running gear from a `04 SMG Cab. is to be used. CSL software reflash will make it a real sleeper.

    Leave AKL SH1, left at Bombay out to Miranda, across the Hauraki Planes to Whangamata, through to Waihi Beach (great camping spot) down to Taupo via Pyes Pa and Rotorua. https://goo.gl/maps/LNxFb Its about 400km but some great sections of driving road, Bombay to Miranda, Kopu to Whanagamata, Whangamata to Waihi, Pyes Pa to Ngongotaha. I've driven it regularly whilst on a projects in Auckland and Taupo (staying overnight at home in Whanagamata, but unfortunately moved closer to AKL).

    I saw a Ute with a bumper sticker that said "I am a vet. I drive like an animal." It was only then that I realised how many gynaecologists and proctologists there are on the roads... ;-)

    For such reasons I find it beneficial to run my used oil through coffee filter paper and reuse it for another 5,000kms.

    Not today well Saturday. Put my style 95 wheels on and even with rolled guards on the rear she still rubs when cornering on the rear bumper funnily enough. The front also sits really high so today I went to go see my mate Fadi at MTS north shore to organise to get her lowered and sort out the rubbing issues. Shes booked in for thursday. here are some pics. I can anticipate a few flames from some members but I like these wheels so help me God. I want functionality though so no stupidly low vehicle for me ♡ heres my Delilah

    Not so much as an issue, rather a comparison merely out of curiosity
