  1. So I drove a 535i. I need to recalibrate my brain. The n55 is seriously quick; quick enough for me. Was tempted to try the 550i but I’ve heard about the turbo v8 and it’s lack of reliability. I also saw a 335i Active Hybrid in M-Sport. Looks cool. Certainly nicer than a E90. Very few F30 335i available - that must be a real rocket.
  2. racechip? sounds interesting
  3. Hi. I’m in the market for a 535i M-Sport. I’ve tried to find a touring but they are not in my price range of $30K. The f10 has a reputation for being a bit numb in comparison to the E39 - which I would buy in a heartbeat again - but they are getting on in age and mint examples are hard to find. So my reading is that the N55 engine is better compared to the N54 in terms of reliability. Another other issues to worry about? Thanks!

  5. Sold my 530i 01 Msport wagon earlier this year. Just under 150k Kms. I got $11k so pretty happy. It was mechanically mint. Some minor cosmetic bits.
  6. From Auckland I'd go via sh27 then cut onto sh29 towards Sh1. On Sh1 there is this amazing little gem of a road that is right by the Waikato river called Horahora road. Bugger all traffic with long straights and some chicanes to slow you down. I usually take this road to get to Taupo or if I have to do a clinic at Tokoroa. IveIf you were after some awesome roads, you could cut across Arapuni dam and take Waipapa Road and head towards Taupo OR continue on Old Taupo Rd. From Taupo, I'd cut across to National Park and drive SH4 and the paraparas. Then it's the horrible drive to Wellington. Look up the roads on Google maps. Wicked fun. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  8. Depends on how much u are willing to spend. Diesels are not that much cheaper once RUC's are taken into account. An E46 318i can be had for not much and would be reasonably reliable and certainly more comfy than a polo. I've seen a W124 merc for about $4k. That would be my pick for an everyday long distance cruiser. Utterly reliable but not cheap to maintain. Good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Price update - just checked Trademe, I might have been slightly enthusiastic with my pricing - now $12000 negotiable.
