    Recaros for E30

    cool thanks, yea, just seen your build thread, those Recaros are pretty much what I'm after, can live without fishnets I guess if these come up, will keep my eye on Mitsi threads to see if any come up, theres some on FB marketplace but are too pricey as they need work, cheers

    Recaros for E30

    Hi all, putting the feelers out if anyone selling any Recaro LS/LX type seats, fishnet type of pos. For the lads E30 coupe for a 21st prezzy later this year, Can get some upholstery fixed if needs be, anything around? (Aucks area ish) thanks
  3. My lads 1990 316i factory manual was written off late last month, its at Weitz Industries now waiting to be dismantled after lockdown i understand, everything you want is on it, might be a bit late for you now though unfortunately if you’ve already ordered from overseas
  4. the E30 tax is strong in this one ... https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-2526913577.htm?rsqid=00046d2b7ac14e4e9a319429bf264ced-002
  5. try Trevor at Auto Interior Specialist just off KRoad, i know he's done E30 door cards and he made a fantastic job of retrimming my seats .. https://auto-interior.co.nz/ https://www.google.com/search?q=auto+interior+specialists&oq=auto+interior+spec&aqs=chrome.0.0j69i57j0l6.4103j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  6. ... one for sale https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/other/other/listing/2306788752
  7. was up for $40k around 6 months ago, I thought at the time massively overpriced (although its near enough a perfect example by the look of the pics), at $35k looks to be a good buy now based on what I've seen 325iMs go for recently , just don't have 35k spare unfortunately
  8. give Ed at GoEuro a bell - https://goeuro.nz/
  9. got a fibreglass rep if interested - sprayed up as shown, was going to respray it so sanded down a bit after this pic was taken, original ones are almost impossible to find I found
  10. all the Vinyl on mine is original, the only part of the upholstery that is
  11. just the fronts, the rears are in good nick, but by the time I'd bought the seats at $200 rough as from a convertible, (that pic above is a bit misleading in that the pic on the left is how the car was with its original seats in) 4 mtrs original fabric @$160 ex GST a mtr and got someone to do the work it came to 2k give or take
  12. thats a real sharp price - I had my Coupe seats reupholstered last year, cost $2k once all done ..

    E30 Exhaust

    post this on the E30 Facebook pages I'd say
  14. ha.. whats the chances eh. very best of luck with sourcing reclinable sport seats, I got really lucky and ended up with rough ones from a convertible a few years ago and got them reupholstered.. very few and far between for sure - seem to be a few Recaros around from other makes from time to time which may do ya if recovered right .. Yahoo Japan have stuff, these are , I think, genuine E30 recaros for eg.. a bit rough again but very much doubt they'll ever appear in NZ unless you import them .. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g356798086
  15. such a shame, looks great in the pics .. you probably don't want to but if you decide to part out put me on the list for the side skirts
  16. some on FB marketplace in Auckland - https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/482334415863399/
  17. beautiful, theres some pretty rough E21 Alpinas on TradeMe at the momment, might be worth a punt .. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/other/listing-2217156653.htm?rsqid=754185d9527d420aaa410ef1029e7b39-002
  18. .. reigniting an old thread as folks mentioning the ludicrous E30 prices at the moment, the E30 that was the subject of this thread is up on TM again (has been up multiple times since I nearly bagged in a few years ago) asking price is $13k now and it looks to be in worse condition now - certainly regarding the interior https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-2221080086.htm?rsqid=126ba3dab23c463db9c31e4506c7b66a-002

    The latest daily E30

    it is level now, although saying that I wouldn't have gone as low as it is now in an ideal world, I'm green as grass when it comes to lowering so know next to nothing about what stuff to get, it would be 10mm higher all round if I had to do it again (get tiresome catching the front lip a few times every week) yours looks about perfect I reckon
