    Fair enough, might be worth telling him that if he's in such a hurry to move it, a successful or failed wof will help it's sale potential IMO, clarity of the actual expense of having this car on the road is pretty vital to determine whether the car is good value for money. He might think he doesn't have the time, but that's an hour of his (or someone elses) life. The lack of WoF, passed or failed may be contributing to the 2 months he's been waiting.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think the one in the photos might have been modified to take the power? 15" wide slicks on the back of the 323i would help keep the arse under control.

    Not sure if you're seeking CC, if not, stop reading. But I offer it because I like your vibe, your passionate, and you've put a lot of effort into this, it's hard enough making a 2 minute video let alone nearly 10. At the start of the video i couldn't tell if I was more distracted by the top of your head being cut off or having to stare up your nose. The drone use and other cinematography is cool, but in my opinion, cars never look good on grass, the green reflection messes with the cars actual colour, and the texture messes with perception of the curves. and hells teeth, you need to stabilise the camera on you while driving, I get that M and other race derived cars are rough on bumps, but that's hard to watch, a lighter camera will move less than that massive DSLR and 24-70? If you're going to do cool cornering shots in an M car, jesus man, cut the apex right (first cornering shot) or some people will judge (I did). And last but not least, though I appreciate that a 9 minute video takes work, but most people get bored after about 3 minutes if theres no guns, drugs, violence, plane, robots, violence, guns, violence girls, sex, speed or noise. I think perhaps you're adlibbing in the summary in the end? Scrip and cut the pauses at. I think looking at what your talking about is strange, when your not making eye contact with the camera its not as engaging, try keep them under 5 and I think you'll have more people engaged. I get a Jeremy Clarkson Metaphorical type vibe, but he scripts and rehearses and keeps it all short, and is passionate, you seemed a little bored in your summary, and one single camera angle with zero cuts is not engaging, you don't need to go full on bubblepopgumyoutubeceleb cut every 5 words, but, change it up a bit. My $200.02c. Sorry if it makes me seem like a dick, well, I am a dick, but I'm not trying to be here.

    So is your E46 all done or are you one of those people that reads like 5 books at once? (Stoked for you to find such awesome E34's and do something really awesome to them)

    Can't for the life of me work out why she'd be holding the gear knob while in the passenger... oh wait... i get it now.

    Heard much good about injectortech. They will replace all the o-rings and pintle caps and make sure the spray pattern etc is all correct. They are totally a serviceable item, no need to throw the old ones away.

    Often if they have a sales counter you can turn up in dirty overalls with an exhausted/bored/pissedoff expression and bullshit story and company name to buy at trade. Source: Do it all the time at Partmaster.

    It's literally just the plug that goes into the back of the factory head unit, couldn't be easier. All factory controls (steering wheel etc.) work like normal. However I think there are a couple of other wires that need splicing, can't remember what for. Ihad an absolute blonde moment and spliced into the wrong wire and that completely messed with the body control module. I had the dash not working, hazards coming on, sunroof not working etc. It was hilarious. Not!

    https://www.kommentools.com/products/bmw-rear-suspension-subframe-bushing-tool-set-for-e87-and-e90 This tool set used to remove and Install front and rear bushings in the rear subframe. Applicable: BMW E87 and E90/91/92/93 Used once, very high quality (would suit a workshop). Makes doing the subframe bushes very easy. the adjustable section is awesome for doing bushes that nothing else fits as well. Note the pictures not quite right (old?) adjustable section is far more trick (like the e53 one on kommen site) Cost $600+ landed in NZ, $400

    Factory fitted... option S666... Thanks to @DC3 I'm updating a register of all e39 M5's in NZ, a very interesting exercise. There is at least one other Silverstone alive in NZ, one deceased. A ton of number plate changes... very few on original plates.. and heaps of garden variety carbon blacks
