  1. CHeers for that. This is quite a common problem on E91 / E61's where leaks from the tail gate will cause water ingress on the antenna module. Unfortunately for mine, the PCB looks perfect and my FM / AM radio is working well (which are generally tell tale signs) for antenna issues. but you can never tell for sure without swapping for a new one...
  2. Much appreciated Gabe. The car is NZ new, with the 434 Mhz frequency. Unfortunately we've had my own key and the new key tested already and they're both fine
  3. The newly programmed key at Express Keys didn't work on my car, then they programmed it to a different car and that worked fine so it shows theres nothing wrong with the key itself. No remotes work for my car at all
  4. I spent some more time trying to get my remote key going, but no luck Went to express keys and got a new key programmed, but still no luck with the remote. The key definitely works as they sync'd it to a different car and worked perfectly. I've pulled apart the diversity antenna module. The PCB is in mint condition and all connections are good. I've visually inspected the antenna grid on the rear windscreen and everything looks in order. I really would like to get this working as its a major inconvenience having to pull out the backup key to lock / unlock all the time - so if you've got anything suggestions I'm all ears!! Thanks
  5. Epic build! Can't believe I've only just seen this thread. Great job so far, and looking forward to seeing more progress!
  6. Assuming that its the coloured M stripes that are faded, its possible to keep you old badge and stick some new stripes on. that way you'll keep you badge at the correct location. Just make sure you get good quality decal.
  7. Yeah, I was very fortunate, i think if it went the other way it'd be a write off. The deposits definitely wasn't bone dry, but not quite dripping with oil either. What are your thoughts?
  8. So I've recently picked up a E46 330d to drive around the country over the summer. The car has a thorough service history from BMW, so I really wasn't expecting to do much - but the service book doesn't mention whether its had the swirl flaps removed. So I thought I better check by removing the manifold. Couple of hours later - heres what I've found : The swirl flaps are still there - 1 barely!!! The shaft had snapped, but the flap itself is still lodged in there - Very lucky!!! Given its only 1 more week til xmas, I really needed to get this sorted. So I spent the next day making swirl flap blanks. While I was at it, I gave the EGR a clean too! Got it all back together this afternoon and took it for spin. All is good Currently I'm getting around 8.7 L / 100 km, its quite a bit higher than my mates tuned 320d - he gets 900+ km in a tank. Does anyone know whether mines running normal? It sits in traffic most of the time... Andrew
  9. Happened to my e30 a few years back. I ended up upgrading to an E36 rack. They're abundant, cheap and significantly faster. You should definitely reconsider as it does offer a very significant improvement to the driving experience.
  10. Real sad to hear that! You've undoubtedly been the most helpful person on this forum. I'm not sure if the moderators see the same, but I definitely think they've dropped the ball on this one.
  11. I think i have one - will check for you when I get home. PM me if you don't hear from me.
  12. PM'd
  13. Welcome aboard Guy. Great choice of car - I've been eyeing up that one on trademe for a while. Just couldn't justify buying it as I've got too many cars already. Looked to be well maintained and well priced.
  14. Hello Team, The remote key on my E92 recently stopped working and I was wondering if anyone have any ideas what might be the cause. The key is still able to start the car, but it would no longer lock / unlock the doors by remote. Its a non comfort access key. Here are the facts: * The lock / unlock button in the car works. * I lost all my radio channels when the key stopped working, but I was able to save them again and it continues to work. * The remote function came back once... but stopped working shortly after * I've cut open the key to replace the battery and the internals looked to be in good condition * The key is emitting the correct frequency (tested by express keys), but uncertain whether the signal is correct * Express keys currently don't have stock of my key (434 Mhz NZ new). * I've only got 1 key at the moment Would be awesome if anyone could suggest something for me to try / test as using the physical key to lock / unlock the car sucks! Thanks, Andrew
  15. Funnily enough, I just purchased some mintex pads and brembo vented rotors for my E30. $150 incl Gst for both fronts. I know we're comparing an 80's car to something from the 00's - but pads and rotors are pretty much the same across the board. So I'd say your new pricing sounds about right!
