  1. I would buy this car sight unseen if it were a manual... which raises the question, to members... What would the price be for a 6sp manual of this car? Apparently it $16000 for a 1992 version... I'm curious. Thanks and GLWS.
  2. This one is LHD which, arguably, give it a bigger market (higher value) in the future...
  3. Good spotting about the heated seats. Seemed normal to me but I'm from Canada β›ΈοΈπŸ’ It's seems a good car but it seems the gentleman has taken some liberties with the description and there are a few discrepancies with reality. Dangerous territory with a lot of BMW freaks around with nothing to do... I still wish him GLWS. I think enough has been said about the $ expectation.
  4. Take a look at the photo of the front brake... is that an M3 brake caliper? I would have thought an Evo would have floating discs and 2 or 4 piston calipers? Anybody?
  5. 4 doors rule! To each his own but I can't stand frameless doors, would never buy a 2 door. Also 4 door has better rigidity, more predictable handling (stretching it a bit here πŸ™‚ ) The frameless doors are the kicker for me. The de-badging is a very odd dog. The car looked wrong to me in the ad photos but I didn't figure it out until I read the text. While I'm being a busy-body... The car is from Singapore and oddly says 3000cc on carjam. Here's the spec sheet from mdecoder. It is not motorsport, but does have sport suspension, seats and steering wheel. In the good old days these things could be bought as options. No mention of LSD or badging.

  6. "Tell him he's dreaming mate". The Castle It is nice.. .but it's not THAT nice. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=2599292487
  7. I am in the belief that he paid about $20,000 for it. It was offered to me for $22,000 in December but I declined due to the high mileage as I was/am looking for an 'investment' car. He might make money... I think not though, for the reason given above. But, In 2 or 3 years... if he doesn't drive it...
  8. I can't say for sure but I can tell you that you have to make some cuts in the bumper to allow it to fit. I have pictures and measurements of the cuts that need to be made, from the car I took it off of. I can post them if you would like.
  9. Added description of how to modify it to fit a Touring.
  10. Sorry, my oversight. Fixed now.
  11. Made by Bosel. Will bolt on to E39 Sedan, can be modified to fit Touring.50mm ballBolts on to factory points. Much stronger than crappy 'aftermarket' fitted towbars which are kludged to fit.More than $500 new (not installed) Yours for $150 If you want to fit it to a Touring, in picture 2, the hole you see without a bolt in it is the hole for mounting on a touring. You need to have a nut welded to the underside of that hole. You also need to have a bit of steel plate welded to the top bar to extend it to reach beyond that same hole. (and drill a hole in it to match the lower hole)
  12. I'd like a start and an alternator for an M44 engine.
  13. I wanted to buy this car.. but the ad disappeared in 1 day! I'm curious if anyone here bought it. I'm curious what it 'went for'? https://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=2514684464
  14. M3 destroyed by fire.... https://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=2501074263
  15. End of life?!? Pffffft! I was still thrashing my last 318 at 320k km. Original motor. What's the rego or 7 digits of VIN please.
