    Great old Mexican tuning house, personally I like the works of Jalalpeñia in making the ultimate tacobahn stormers

    Hi all, Finally decided to join here after utilizing this forum many times over the last few years. My previous car was an E46 318i and I've had a fair bit of experience with other BMW's via family and friends which include an E36 320i, E36/7 Z3, and an E66 745Li. My current ride is a semi-recently acquired 2008 335i M-Sport in Sapphire Black. I have a list of things I'm wanting to do to it so no doubt I will be on here a bit haha.

    The boss has decided she wants a bigger car and the 130 will be sold. LCI version with CIC HDD I drive. Rear to have with sunroof it seems. Polished, sealer on paint is good for a year, cabin & air filters all changed, serviced at 118ks 120 Ks, $11k for bimmersport interest. Will hit trademe at the weekend. Based in Bombay now, new plate is LFQ954. Cons. 2 minor spots of clear coat pealing around roof rack areas in gutter.

    You don't see many in that colour! I wonder if in 20 years time I will be a weird old dude like my father in law, who gets all excited whenever he sees a Mk1 Capri driving about, and I'll be getting all misty eyed about E39s... "Oh yes they had cassette players in all models without the TV screen right up to the end of production, even tho everyone ditched their mixtrack tapes 10 years before then" Kids "WTF Dad you are such a nerd, who even cares about these old cars"

    So a little disappointed after the weekend at the drags. Best I could manage was a 14.007 sec pass. Was a warm sunny day, where as last time was overcast and cold. Will have to try some different start techniques and try again.

    You should be able to use the hidden OBC functions to get an idea of battery voltage whilst running. Test 9 will give you the info. http://www.bmw-driver.net/forum/showthread.php?t=31204 As well as FSU some of those early climate control panels can develop a drain, later E46 have a smaller updated version. Manually turning it off before turning off the car is the way to test that.

    No, being a broke uni student doesn't help You could try unplugging the hedgehog, or pulling the fuse for that system and seeing if the battery still drains, if it doesn't then the hedgehog is the most likely culprit.

    Yeah, $90 to fit all 4 which isn't bad. Add an alignment and I could walk away for $500...

    They're 'resting'. I have one job to do - hopefully Monday if weather will allow - but they're obviously available for return as soon as you say. I just checked some shocks and struts - they all 'bounce back'. The shocks I have were tested by Chris and decreed to be 'good'. And the shocks you've found... They are from Chris. Lol. Even cheaper than the E46 offer he ran a while back. He'll probably fit them for you if you buy from him (for a small $ consideration.) He has the kit and space to do it.

    Turns out Para Rubber is the answer. SuperC didn''t have the right size. $10.

    The stupidest part of all of this, is the NZ vendors pushing for removing the $400 import limit so GST is charged on everything, as if 15% additional cost will make any difference, if the price difference is 15% -20% most people will buy locally for immediacy already.

    All this gear is about three years old and works fine. $500 for the following. RRP about $2500. 1/2 gun. 3/8 gun drill with 1/2” chuck LED light x2 chargers x2 18v batteries x2 14.4 volt batteries note only one charger and 14.4v battery is in the pic. The 1/2 gun will likely undo anything car related. I could strip 10 stud truck wheels torqued up to 650nm with it. The 3/8 gun is probably the handiest tool I’ve owned. However I’ve gone to Milwaukee gear now. I may may be able to assist with delivery in the north Island sometime before Tuesday next week.
