    Cooked Motor Question

    The cambelt was still attached to this too.

    Cooked Motor Question

    Just because the timing belt is fitted doesn't mean it's working/turning correctly, My partners car chucked the woodruf key, thankfully the 4A series are non-interference, so mainly it was amusing, crank was fine, only pulley damaged. You can check the motion of the belt/pistons by removing all the plugs, and turning the engine over by hand (or with a socket/bar on the timing pulley (Clockwise only!)) and make sure TDC is where it should be. To find TDC you can put a long socket extension down the plug hole
  3. Brand new set, I bought both type A and type B as I didn't want to pull the cluster out and apart twice, I used type B. This is version A which consists of the following gears: 12 + 44x16 + 40x28 + 28x22 . https://store.garagistic.com/Parts-catagories/odometer-gears/e30-odometer-repair/KMH motometer gears?sort=pd.name&order=ASC Just looking to get back (a little less) than I paid for it, $40. If you bought them today you'd be looking at about NZ$45 plus freight etc.
  4. All yours. PM me your email.
  5. I won it in a mammoth promotion, alas I have a wedding to attend that weekend. first in first served.

    SPOTTED! The official thread

    I think that would affect top speed and fuel consumption more than handling
  7. That was smashing bro, Crushed him, Dented his ego,
  8. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1756592930.htm?rsqid=134fb5eaa0bd48e08e9537c320b192f7 Accidental Repost, original: Worth at least 1.8K because it still drives apparently.

    2003 e39 540i MSport – Valuation

    It really depends, what the market thinks and how long you are happy to wait for a sale, a member here sold his example for under 3K, I forget the mileage, but it took over a year to sell, with the price dropping every few months. So if you’re in a hurry you could probably try for 6 or 7k, motorsports do benefit form the Motorsport tax, and the M62TU is better in my opinion. For someone dead set on a low mileage late mode 540 Motorsport in silver, you’d probably be able to get more than 8K... But as ever; things are only worth what someone will pay for them. make use of the expired auction search tool on Trademe.

    Quick Questions

    As a rule, once they get below 1.5V per cell (there are 6 cells), they will never recover, even . Though they will hold charge, they won’t have any amps and any draw will drop the volts, below 1V per cell is proper f**ked. There is a machine that can shock charge them to try dislodge the calcification, but it’s hit and miss. I’ll spare you the chemistry lesson. I get trade at YHI, but not sure if I can get you one near you and freight would be a bitch.

    Quick rant thread.

    I can’t beleive it’s reflective haha! That seems maybe illegal? hells teeth, I’ve seen some shitty things done to BMW’s over the years, but this takes the cake.

    E30 Ignorance - $40k - $65k Really?

    It may not be completely insane, people are asking for 20k and more for E30 M325 that aren’t close to this kind of condition and with f**k all history. Plus if the Alpina stuff is for real, that’s super rare. Its probably over priced for NZ, but globally speaking maybe about right. Dude is a car yard also, so that’s a 25% mark up to be expected anyway.

    BMW M2 drivers review by yours truely

    Yeah man, seriously, keep it up, and don't keep it to the new cars, if there's one thing I enjoy on car shows, is reviews on old awesome cars, TopGear did 850CSi, M1 and more, and I always get a kick out of it. I think they once did an E28/E34/E39/E60 M5 side by side comparison and drag race once. I'm sure some people here would let you have a hoon in assorted MXXX and MX cars. I for one would love to see a side by side of a 135, 335 and 535, I think you'd get a sh*t tonne of views because many people ask which is best for them.
  14. My sump was about that low on me E30 320. It got removed and folded under the chassis with the exhaust manifold by a manhole that was sitting too high. 10/10 wouldn't do again.

    1990s european touring car anyone?

    Hahaha, yeah, that's for damn sure.
