  1. $95 each new is pretty good. I think I spent not too much less than that getting second hand ones off ebay in the UK, shipping them over here, and getting new stickers for them. I was pretty new to the game at that point, and should have checked with the dealer. I'd say rep centers wouldn't work, as most of them don't do the whole locking thing, and tend to have a hex screw to attach it to the wheel so it doesn't fall off.
  2. I think it on trademe for less than 24 hours. Very tidy and original example.
  3. Replacements coded to your car? I would say the dealer is the only option. I don't know if you could rebuild your ignition barrel, but that could be a cheaper option.
  4. Still have the front struts? What size are they?
  5. I haven't ever physically tested them, but believe the 5 stud weaves use this cap, and they don't work with the 4 stud weaves.
  6. They do, but things won't last long if you're wanting to drop skids. Have a search, many run the m40 box behind the m50/52, myself included.
  7. When I say I redid the brakes I replaced all the hoses, the front rotors, and pads all around. The 6 cylinders have larger front calipers to accept vented rotors.
  8. Give Ray at HellBM a call. He may have what you're after.
  9. I recall someone rebuild and sold E30 racks a while ago (I want to say Auto38, but not sure) I have rebuild an E36 rack, which wasn't particularly fun, but hasn't leaked so far. I would imagine an E30 rack wouldn't be much different. Would recommend buying a rebuilt one if available, otherwise look into rebuilding it yourself.
  10. I prefer non sunroof due to less rust. Currently have taken out my headlining, and am suffering from a wet head while driving in the rain. It will probably be easier to flick the 318i as is, and track down a gearbox for converting the 320i.
  11. Hi Dean Originally E30s used r12, which as the article states is quite hard to aquire these days since it's been replaced with R134a for some time. If you are unable to track down a company that still has r12 in Stock, R134a is your only option
  12. My 320i manual to m52b28 swap cost me a touch under 5k including cert. I redid just about all of the brakes, so that was a decent chunk of the price. Should be able to do a m20b25 swap for much less.
  13. Mint velour carpet (320+) with the foam attached? Brake master cylinder?
  14. I'll take it. Just so I can take it down to the Mega Meet this year, and assist anyone who's unfortunate like Huff3r last year to have their waterpump give out before leaving to go home.
  15. Yep, that's the one.
