  1. Welcome Arata, loving the DIY on the side of the road!
  2. Some good recent info in this thread: http://bimmersport.co.nz/topic/62277-1-series-which-modelyear/ I've been casually looking, if you get one that needs maintenance then the bills seem to be very high.
  3. Absolutely stunning ^ and please, if you're an E30 M3 fan open this page and let the images load... https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1229661
  4. I was surprised that it was that small actually, quite so. I had a double-take. Unfortunately engineering has finally fully succumbed to marketing at BMW.
  5. I have no idea what's going on but today I saw a 2 series that was: Smaller than a 1 series; and, Four doors... WTF BMW? Please, sort your sh*t out.
  6. Yep, same Aaron. He has a lot of industry contacts down there hence the suggestion. I don't want to publicly promote one well known local 'vendor' over another but Kayne (KBM) and Ray (Hell) have both done the work, you might want to talk to both and suss out availability and cost, as well as the sense of confidence you get from the discussion, before deciding. That's if you want to remove it and send it of course.
  7. Wow, let me know you the next time you're in Auckland, the beers are on me! ๐Ÿคฃ
  8. It looks to me as if one of those hats was cast and the other was machined.
  9. Holy crap, is the shock just held in by that clamp? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ How the f**k does that work? ๐Ÿคจ
  10. BMW aren't necessarily the right people actually, they have very little experience with these type of procedures. Shop around for a reputable engine builder for the bottom end, VANOS you may need to ship, I don't know the ChCh market, perhaps @Aaron has a better idea. $4.7k is stupid money, don't do that. I suspect the best you'll get is a start-up warranty from any independent. There are a few in Auckland that will rebuild your VANOS for you.
  11. Michelin deserve credit for making those available... vintage tyre with modern tech.
  12. Nice one Chris. I would be interested to know how they sounded with those extra blocks removed (I'm assuming they're harmonic dampers of some description). I think the calipers look better with them removed.
  13. Nice one, I realise they're just tyres but I'm keen to see a pic.
  14. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Can you come and clean my engine bay? Naa, but you don't need to build something to know how it works. ๐Ÿ˜
