    Help save Western Springs Speedway

    Pretty sure that's not the case. My understanding is that council has negotiated that Speedway move out to Waikaraka Park and offered to cover relocation costs. I think the owner is being a bit disingenuous in the press.

    Help save Western Springs Speedway

    The Zoo has been there a lot longer than the Speedway and the safety and welfare of its animals will be greatly improved without their annual fireworks display. Another location seems sensible.

    Concept M8 Gran Coupe

    I like the tail, though can definitely see Aston Martin/Jag influence - particularly with the lights - and the high curved spoiler has a touch of M3 CSL about it. The front is back to current styling which is a big improvement on the concept 8er I'd seen. I don't mind it but it certainly doesn't stand out next to the other big sport sedans. Hoping for more from the 2 door version and fingers crossed the rumour mill about the M8 having a TT V10 is true. It'll need something special under the bonnet to justify the NZ price tag, which I hear will be stratospheric for the M8 (the standard 8 is rumoured to be in the late $200Ks). The colour looked glorious in the Geneva motorshow pics. But still - I think we all agree that it's a bit too generic to live up to its predecessor.

    Jooles' E31 project log

    Waited 4 months for a used rust-free sunroof to turn up from an E31 collector in Canada. Finally got it painted and fitted. Now just waiting on some pesky headlining clips that are (of course) only found on the E31 and E32, so BMW NZ only had 4 in stock out of the 16 I need. Hopefully fresh headlining will be in by Xmas!! Only other outstanding jobs are crank position sensors - which will be a summer job as they're a bit of a mission to change - and servotronic steering retrofit - which I'm in absolutely no hurry to do!! haha

    540is getting a refresh

    Ron would probably enjoy keeping a trusty auto going for a few more years.

    E31/32/34 headlining clips

    Anyone wrecking an E32 or E34 sedan with a sunroof? I need 12 more of these clips to reattach my 850i headlining. Would prefer not to wait 2 weeks ex-Germany. Found on cars with sunroofs only (except E34 wagon). Thanks in advance.

    M70 Crankshaft sensors x 2

    Anyone got any new or good used crankshaft sensors for an M70 (E32 750 or E31 850)? It's a long wait to get them ex-Germany.

    E38 and E31 V12 Scan tools

    You'll need an old (90s) 4:3 laptop with Windows 95, ADS interface and OBD I (20 pin) plug. Best software seems to be INPA/DIS/Carsoft. Lots of info here - just search E31 and/or INPA - https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?233-Diagnostic-Software

    New 8-series is on the cards

    Looks very Aston from the rear. Front grille is pretty ugly but it wouldn't surprise me if it gets a more front more consistent with the other models when a production version is made. Hope it comes with a version of the twin turbo V12 that the new M760iL has.

    1991 E31 850i

    I've been a bit quiet on here for a while. Mainly because of life's many interventions, but also because the 8er has had an irritating ignition issue so has been largely undriven while I slowly hunted around for parts and time to sort it. Anyway, got it running smoothly once more this weekend and took some pics - sadly, because I'm probably going to sell her - and was reminded just how beautiful the 8 series is.

    Yep, it's meant to sound like that. Old skool.

    E39 M5 restoration project Version 2.0

    Sweet!! Pity the 8er is too low or I'd have come too!

    Oh look! Another e36 project.

    Chinese seller on eBay. Even came with a clever little tool for removing the filter. I did all 12 previously on the 8er so I've got pertty quick. Took me 15-20 minutes to do six. The kit has enough for 4 more injectors which you're welcome to but guessing you need two more sets!

    Replaced the injector seals and filters ready for cleaning and testing.
