  1. Please do, it looks epic with the quad pipes.
  2. I don't know if this is relevant but make sure you don't have spongey clutch lines, it's a big thing to replace the rubber line on E36 M3's with a braided one to solve terrible clutch problems.
  3. Fine... https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2644758937 https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/interior/listing-2653585079.htm Edit: I didn't notice a difference immediately but are the bolsters deeper? And no adjustable thigh support it seems.
  4. The manual one in Christchurch is back up again for $7k. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-2653167567.htm Beige leather but somebody buy it would you, add the following and be done for less than $8k. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/interior/listing-2653356396.htm I've been skoold on "comfort" seats so try these instead... https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2644758937 https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/interior/listing-2653585079.htm And Alpine White. Edit: although I've just realised you'd need door cards. Easy to get some PRE-LCI black ones for peanuts. Edit: But still, it's a cheap manual.
  5. My OCD got the better of me, I couldn't stand the difference between the halos and the fogs... I had to code out voltage checking but I expected as much, didn't want to stump up extra for the Philips CANBUS unit. Being LED's I can also run them as DRL''s if I like, undecided on that but it's not practical with halogens. All my white lights, inside and out, are now 5-5.5k so match quite nicely.
  6. LED fog lights in, so much better aesthetically and these "Gen 2" lamps from Philips are high quality. One side done... Both done, matches the angel eyes well...
  7. Hi, and yes insofar as I test drove a number of 130's before I picked mine up and I could feel the difference. Is it the ~20hp claimed? I'm not sure but it's certainly good enough for me. The LSD and suspension I have makes most of the difference, I found the stock suspension to be almost dangerous on B roads so if you need to replace suspension do not go for stock. And even the standard power was easily able to overcome the traction of the rear wheels and the DSC would kick in all the time, often at inopportune and dangerous times, with the LSD the DSC now only ever comes on in the wet when I'm powering into a corner from a standstill (e.g. intersection).
  8. Post pics and details of the 130 please... you can get them flashed, mine's running a 280hp tune, glad I've got an LSD... mine came like that, I'm sure others will know of options available here.
  9. Any risk of them resetting my tune to stock?

    With the whole font end integrated into one now, the grill becoming the bumper, even low speed incidents are going to involve costly repairs. Edit: the weight savings and CoG improvements are impressive for such a car and I must say I like the LED strip accent lighting. But that grill... and to see a lot of it is actually blanked off makes it even more egregious, not only is it ugly, it's unnecessary.
  11. I think it's this one then... wonder why it took BMW NZ so long to react? https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2017/RCRIT-17V683-5875.pdf
  12. What's a "heater of the engine ventilation line" do you know? Besides a literal translation from Deutsch.
  13. A few things arrived for the 130 today. H8 LED's for my fog lights, they OEM ones are yellow and don't match the 5500K angel eyes or the HID's. I don't actually use the fog lights unless it's, well foggy, but they may work as complementary DRL's, we'll see. And, much to my surprise a recall notice from BMW NZ, apparently "the heater of the engine ventilation line has to be replaced" whatever the fook that is? Anyone else get one?
  14. Seller also has exactly 0 trades... burner account? Too much suspicion with this one, including the full body respray.
