    2005 E46 M3 CS

    Maybe call me cynical, or even drunk (drunk is more likely) but I feel too many people buy into the internet hype. Not all M3s have vanos, smg, bearing issues and people get too excited to shoot them down for not having these issues address. There are thousands of these engines about and and I can guarantee Alot of them are ok and had no issues whatsoever, there a plenty on eBay with 160k+ miles still demanding good money
  2. Ah do you need to remove the whole system? I thought you could just remove drivers one and keep the rest. Although now that I've said it you'd end up with airbag fault light and fail on that.
  3. Why not fit the Momo, and get a cert for airbag removal? Assuming you need a cert for something else...

    I think you are being a bit picky. It's an uprated M3 for the same sort of price as other M3s. Regardless if it is an import or not, I think it's a good price

    Alignment issues

    Interesting, good work. At the rear of mine, I've got toe in on one side and toe out on the other. Bushes all look good, and wonder if these would help?

    335i E90 high pressure fuel pump

    Just wait until it fails and use your mechanical insurance to get it fixed. Not much point it paying for it if someone else will

    e87 04 120i Blue/White Smoke

    Valve stems are pretty common on these, easy way to test them is let the vehicle idle for about 5mins until it gets warm and then give it some jandle. Should blow massive blooms of smoke. Odd its not bringing up any faults with the check engine light, should bring something up at least historical

    Bmw E91 overheating fun

    Once the tyre is flat, generally you can travel up to 80km at a speed of 80kph before the sidewall of tyre breaks down and requires replacement. Which in most cases is enough to get the next town or garage but not always M3's dont come on runflat tyres unless someone has retrofitted them. And if it is a new one still under warranty then BMW roadside assist will come pick it up with no charge

    Happens more than you think Yes you can, as long as it's not in the sidewall or in the edge. Same as a normal tyre.

    Less weight, protects against blowouts, and not getting run over on the side of the road while you change a tyre, yeah that screams money hunger. 90% of all runflat tyres are available from dealers or overnight from Auckland and are cheaper than from Bridgestone or where ever you get tyres from. Hate on runflats for their ride/noise is justified but everything else is has no basis

    Illegal to fit normal tyres after run-flat??

    This says otherwise 2. All the tyres on a vehicle class MA, MB, MD1 or NA that was first registered or re-registered in New Zealand from 1 October 2002, other than vehicles that are incapable of exceeding 30km/h or are 30 years old or more, are not of the same carcass type (ie mixed steel ply, fabric radial ply, bias/cross ply, run-flat).

    absolutely, instead of rewriting the whole section they just keep adding parts to it which make it more and more confusing as it tends to contradict itself throughout

    I must have miss read your post sorry. Need all 4 the same have asked a number of WOF inspectors and all confirmed this
  15. Gaz

    Illegal to fit normal tyres after run-flat??

    It is ok to do so but you must have all 4 tyres the same. IE all runflats or all normal tyres. Can't mix and match

    You need to have 4 of all the same. If you read it thoroughly it contracts itself slightly but has a line which states all 4 must be the same

    Afaik, no. But then again my car isn't running at the moment so will find out when it does

    L98 into an E36 coupe.

    It's not the diameter it's the thickness which should be stamped on the rotors. At least with genuine ones they are

    Depends where you go. A mechanic would more than likely wheels off and measure properly as long as the discs had the min thickness stamped on them, but a testing station wouldnt. Same goes for window tints, if there are no markings then they can be failed and up to you to prove that they are ok
