    Import tax

    Govt has announced the following today. What is interesting is that there is no duties on goods under $1000 so in theory you can get away with not paying GST or duty on the goods if the company doesn't import much into NZ https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/107929221/taxfree-internet-shopping-to-end-next-october
  2. Often it's a toll reader or aftermarket unit plugged in somewhere. Will be a case of trying to find the unit and removing it.

    E91 2008 - locked out of car

    Unless the lock is faulty also but flat should not affect the door. You do have to turn it quite hard

    Will the key blade not work in the driver's door?

    BMW service

    You'll need to keep the receipts of the servicing if you plan on claiming on Autosure, stamps are not enough so best to use garage supplied parts for servicing

    The first-ever BMW X7.

  7. Now now children. Let's provide some helpful advice and if you don't have anything worthwhile then don't say anything. As long as the car fully checks out and you do your due diligence then doesn't matter where the car comes from.

    The first-ever BMW X7.

    I kinda like it, especially in Motorsport disguise. From the front corner it reminds me of a Rolls Royce Phantom

    Written off F90 M5

    Or someone drove in it. Interesting how people always assume it was the drivers fault
  11. These will be the newer design which you can't/shouldn't mix and match with the older type rather than the older fault prone ones

    We had a white one at Chch BMW but I think we sold it to a customer in Hong Kong

    E36 328i coupe 'track' project

    Thats an interesting read, thanks. I was going with e46 330 fronts and m3 evo rears which are slightly smaller than e46 330 rears so assume the outcome will be similar to 330 brakes all round? Its also going on a touring so with the extra rear weight I think it will be ok

    E36 328i coupe 'track' project

    How does that work? Would have thought matching front and rear would have given best balance. See alot of 'mericans use e46 328 rears, 330 fronts

    E36 328i coupe 'track' project

    Keeping the rears stock? Be interested to see how you go, looking at doing the same but using m3 evo rear pads and discs

    E36 328i coupe 'track' project

    What other plans do you have for the brakes? Did you notice much difference with the 330i brakes?

    335i recalls

    That link doesn't actually check to see if your car has any recalls, just passes on your details to the local dealer to check and follow up

    335i recalls

    This. Call your local dealer with the vin number they can check the history. Or pm me and I'll do it when I'm back on at the work on Wednesday

    Break Open The Piggy Bank - M4 CS

    The warranty has nothing to do with the previous owner, warranty is attached to the car. Assuming it's NZ new then the service plan ceased when the previous owner sells the car as that agreement is between the owner and BMW NZ

    E46 transmission issue

    If it is a definite trans issue then Ace-o-Matic on Stanmore Road.
