    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    That sucks, sorry to hear it.

    Deja Vu - NZ Health System

    You need to find a good GP you can trust and have health insurance. I had cancer a couple of years ago and was referred to a top specialist very quickly and I honestly think that either saved my life or at the very least made my recovery much quicker and easier. it was certainly a wake up call for me as if never really given what my exact coverage was much thought and always assumed that all doctors were created equal. Another one for people to check on their health insurance is to make sure it covered non-Pharmac drugs. Pharmac is a great system but it can’t find everything people may need. The more I see of health and the like, the more I think it’s like any other profession, with good and bad and most somewhere in between.
  4. I had my navigation changed over to NZ - bit of a waste of time IMO, the interface on the early iDrive whist impressive 12 years ago is pretty primitive by iPhone standards today.

    Just bought an e34 540i

    Always amazed me how they got such little power out of some of those engines. Still, guess they were quite tuneable if you wanted to pump them up.

    Yeah, I thought tradition was that the losing side ransacked a city...

    In silver or black this will look the business. Besides, it competes with the Golf and that’s a FWD platform, RWD was wasted on people buying a 116i to pop to the shops in.

    The lesson here is make sure you get a reasonable piece of the company, rather than working your guts out for years and leaving with nothing like this guy did.

    Christchurch 2006 BMW 540i new owner

    If they replaced the valve stem seals then that’s great news.

    Apple TV, come on, don’t be a cheapass.

    Cable ties to hold a coil together on a M5.... some people. My thinking has always been that the plugs last about 100k kms or slightly less so I don’t mind paying for coils at that time. I guess the M5 might eat plugs faster than normal though?

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    I’ve started changing coils whenever doing plugs for that reason. The heat destroys the tips of them and particularly on the larger engines, the ones at the back of the block are difficult to get out without damage.

    I guess this is designed to compete with the Lincoln Navigator, GMC Yukon and the like in the US market. My E70 is plenty big enough for me...
