    E36 motorsport/alpina stuff

    E36 motorsport kit front is pretty average could do with a repaint. Rear has some scratches and diffuser has been hacked for towbar but can't see how bad it is behind the towbar. Sides are very good $400 E36 front Alpina lip fits standard bumper. Bumper needs slight modification to fit. Not sure what these are worth so $400ono?
  2. Can be done with the engine as we (Christchurch BMW) have done it but it is easier with it out.
  3. There's a tool which allows you to do it without removing the engine but it's a very tight fit. The correct BMW way is to remove the heads and do the guides as well but it's become pretty standard to do just the seals with it all in place
  4. That's prob at the cheaper end of the scale already I'd say. If they are doing the seals with the heads in place it's a very labour heavy job which is where all your cost is going. I would go for someone who has experience in doing the job rather than the cheapest. Also be prepared for a number for extra hoses that will also require replacement due them being old and brittle
  5. Eccentric shaft wear is common so could be that?

    Staggered wheel diameter

    There was a guy who ran double staggered Hartges on his e30. Can't for the life find it now but looked good

    Rears will sit 9mm further in so yes 10mm in the rear will make it more or less the same. If you add a spacer it brings the offset down

    www.willtheyfit.com will help you work it out For the fronts the outter edge will be roughly the same but in the inner edge will be about 10mm closer to the strut. So yeah a 10mm spacer should sort you out

    E30 sedan..what's this worth

    Hard to say as the e30 market is all over the place. Rear spoiler is a standard one and not mtech, unsure about the wheels as the waffles are weird. Personally I'd pay 8k tops if everything checks out ok and is mint
  11. A bit more these days http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/showthread.php?101915-FS-Rondell-0021-BMW-Z3-M-rare-staggered-wheels-concave-M3-Roadster-deep-dish-R-O-D
  12. A decent PPI will give you all the info you need and when it's due. Including any brakes and if any bushes etc are showing signs of wear. Or if you have a chance to view the car, it will give you an idea of when the brakes are via the service info in the idrive. Brakes wear can vary alot depending on how the drive treats the car.
  13. How many kms? Factory warranty is 5 years/100,000kms

    E36 Clutch Problem

    I've been running the setup, m52b28 with a 6 speed box and NZAD clutch and flywheel. Didn't install the clutch stop but do feel the engagement point is very low. I feel it has become better and higher since installing it so might install the stop if i can find it. Probably done about 2000km so far

    E3/E12 gearbox compatibility

    I'm fairly certain gearbox will be ok but will need a pedal box from an e3
