    Just picked up a new shopping wagon of sorts after a very long time of deliberation. I am sure it will turn into a project of some sorts. Daylight and photos to come. Needs a major screen upgrade, super dated.

    @EURO V12 I'm in the North West. I pretty much live over the road from the National Cathedral which you can see no matter where you are in DC. The only area you don't visit as a white man now is the South East. Anacostia and surroundings. The navy Yard area was once bad but is now full of brand new apartments and of course the Nationals Stadium. Most areas are transforming and the bad areas are being pushed out. There are four separate police forces between work and home. Which is 7 mins away. If the Mrs wasn't so home sick for her family I would be happy to stay here. But I also have a 5 year limit on my visa (new rules to stop a number of countries abusing the system (Most African and Arabic countries)). E.g. The Embassy Gardner for a small African nation was recently caught driving for Uber and had been for years. Turns out he is the brother of the ambassador and the embassy doesn't have a garden... It is rife with these abuses here. If anyone is ever in DC drop me a message. Will get you out to a Saturday morning cars and covfefe that will blow your mind. BTW DC is worth visiting as much as NYC is when coming to the East Coast. The Smithsonian's alone are worth it. Who doesn't like Space Shuttles and Blackbirds..

    I'm in the process of buying a new car... well a second hand, one of my favorite cars. Luckily I have a lot of good contacts and have found one for a bloody good deal. So now it's time to sell my current pride and joy 😢... i don't want to sell it, but owning two cars will be slightly unnecessary. On the plus side the new car will be worth it 😃😍 More details available on my listing. Feel free to ask away and make me an offer if anyone is interested! Ideally I would like $16,000 for it but any offer around that area would be considered. If the price is right I might accept it... so go ahead! 😊 http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1400269772&ed=true 20170804_183337.mp4

    Yeah, I find "weld through" primer a pain when working on my Datsun. It's good for sealing up metal that you're never going to have access to once the patch goes in, but personally I find the surfaces that need to conduct are preferably cleaned back to bare metal. Maybe with thicker steel it would be ok as there would be more current involved. Cool project man...following!

    Even the dealers are known to have gotten this wrong leading to having to replace the instrument cluster and the LCM... good luck... fingers crossed

    I get you (lol) but I was really just confirming that you knew the highest mileage in the two modules will be used, you don't get to choose.

    He went for the one that he was able to get the cheapest, and he ignored my advice to get a PPI it seems... well... everyone that buys a BMW inevitably picks up a few lessons after the fact. I've had my wallet hammered for buying the cheapest once, and he well knows that, but C'est la vie, caveat emptor. Three languages in one post, who am I trying to impress?

    WOW how professional! I expected better from you! How did you ever interpret what I wrote as being bitter??!! It was written over 1.5 years ago!!! WTF? Simply uncalled for! I simply relayed what I was told "at the time" when I asked about the driver airbag by the service advisor! 1.5 years ago!!! Heck the guy probably doesn't even work for you guys now! I stated clearly I am not sure if "this will change" in reference to non NZ new cars. As it transpires according to you I was given the wrong information back then! And if you really think BMWNZ is doing a good job with these airbag recalls, check my two E46 cars that had both airbags replaced two months BEFORE I actually got the recall letter to come in and do the recall?! Why are you sending me letters when it was already done?? You honestly think I still hold a grudge over an M day invitation from years back???!!! If I did, I wouldn't have bought a F80 M3 two years ago and I wouldn't have just bought another car TODAY from the same dealership?!! I also wouldn't be constantly buying spare parts for my cars! In fact I am more than certain I alone maybe the highest "individual (non corporate) spender on parts at dealerships. "Not" the way to treat someone that still holds a passion for the brand and still direct business towards the brand - don't believe me, ring the dealerships and find out from the service guys and parts guys that do a fantastic job. Ring Jonny and find out if I didn't just buy a car today! Whether I burnt my bridges with people in BMWNZ or not is irrelevant to an airbag recall, it's not like I've actually received personal invitations to any drive days since then anyways, so most likely already black listed. Do I care? Not a bit really. Do BMWNZ care? I suspect not really either given your reponse to my post 1.5 years ago! Heck crucify me for not updating on the status of airbag recalls! ps. And No need to thank me for spending my time going through all my backup hard drives and old computers ao I can dig out and supply old photos of the original Mini Showroom so that visitingGermans can see the progression to what the brand is today. pss. Tanty over - peace!

    Only just seen this so apologies for the late reply. Either you are paraphrasing the response or the person you spoke to doesn't know what they are talking about. ALL vehicles in NZ that can be traced, if affected, will be recalled. The list of affected air-bags and hence cars is changing almost daily as it is on a car by car basis. I thought you had burnt all your bridges with BMWNZ staff after your little tanty over not being invited to M Festival? Clearly you are still bitter.

    Update on this..e70 71, e83, e87, e9x JAPAN imports are also confirmed affected. Airbags are on order with no ETA. Currently NZ New vehicles are ok. Again if anyone is concerned PM me you VIN and I'll check.
