  1. I have a spare but it's still in the car..lol
  2. Nice car Mark. I may have a spare at home. I'll have a look when I get back. You could also look at upgrading to the 16:9 display. All it would take is the display and the module from the boot. All plug and play.
  3. It's a definite clunk that can be felt through the transmission tunnel inside the car and it increases with the sped of the car. After a lot of reading online it seems the Guibo might be the culprit. I need to go back for another look at it and make an offer on the car. If I do get it it'll have the reg put on hold and put in the shed for a winter project.
  4. Hey Pete. I had a possible deal in the works for a swap. A 740i, 750il and 728i all for my 750i but that has since fallen through. Yeah. I'd like to see it go to someone who will care for it.
  5. It's an auto and it's not just one clunk. It's a regular clunking that increases with speed and the whine I described was more of a whistle that also increased with revs. Sort of tempted. The rest of the car is pretty decent. As to the video Geordie. I got rid of the particular whine a few months back.. lol
  6. I'm looking at a E36 328i that the current owner said has a stuffed transmission. I took it for a drive yesterday and it had a severe clunk in 1st 0that could be felt through the transmission tunnel and a bit of a whine. Has anyone had any experiance with these symptoms. Before I make an offer it'd be nice to know if it is the trans which might be more than the cars worth or the Guibo which for me would be a relatively easy swap. I dont have access to a hoist though could jack it up. Will I be able to see past the exhaust to check the Guibo if I jack it up and get under it?
  7. bump
  8. $6500 if anyone here wants it.
  9. Hi Mark. I've still got it though recently decided it's seriously time it went. I haven't seen many Pre Facelift 750i's in NZ. I saw a silver one a few years ago on TM. Will be looking froweard to seeing some pics of yours.
  10. Welcome to the forum. Nice Bimmer.
  11. Great progress. Nice to see it coming back together. Has there been any more progress since August?
  12. I followed this build from the beginning and it's gone through a progression of wheels. Here are a few of his past choices. It'd be nice if the S62 drivetrain was as cheap and accessible as it is in the US. Started with M-Pars. He's always had great taste in cars. Heres his last E38.
  13. I do like shots of a nicely cleaned and polished car but theres also something to be said for shots like these with a car thats been "driven" to a stunning location. Very cool.
  14. Thanks. This particular project has been put on hold while I get my 4x4 van sorted for this summer. Certified self contained is the goal and I'm nearly there. About all I need to do on the 750i now is get it repainted and that probably wont be for a while yet either as the money for that might get spent on bigger wheels, bull bar and winch for the van. lol
  15. Yep, still going strong. Here's a pic of it's last real outing with the Wellington guys when we did the trip over the Gentle Annie to Napier. It get's a weekly drive just to keep everything moving. I haven't done a lot to it recently as all my efforts have been going into getting my 4x4 van ready for the summer.
