    Cheapest Car Rental in Auckland

  3. Hi, I've got the factory recommended tyre size of 225/50/16 on my E36 328i Looking at the tyre on the 16x7 rim they look to me like they are near the upper limit widthwise. I'm thinking that a 205/55/16 would look & fit better. Have more square shoulders and not bulge out at the side. Also keep original tyre diameter and gearing correct. Possibly be a bit quieter too. What's your thoughts ? Cheers Peter

    Yokohama C Drives

    I purchased these Yokohama C drive Tyres for my 330i, replacing the Nangkang NS20's. NS20's have a very soft sidewall whilst the C drives have a fairly stiff sidewall. Improvement really noticable. Quiet, plenty of feel and grip in damp conditions. Very happy

    E30 Towbar Fitting

    Hi, I've a 1987 nz new BMW E30 318i and I want to fit a towbar i've recently purchased. The towbar is marked pfl so this is the correct one for my chrome bumper model 2 door 318i Question - If my car did not originally have a towbar fitted do i have to drill and cut below the bumper to fit this towbar. It looks like a square hole needs to be cut each side so the towbar 'rails' slide into the chassis rails of the car. I'm only wanting to tow my 10ft dingy so not too much weight for this vehicle. Anyone have any diagrams or instructions, photos etc Thanks in advance Regards Peter

    E30 Towbar Fitting

    Would anyone have a scan or shot of rear bumper removal instructions on a pre face lift bmw e30 ? Maybe from a haynes manual ?? Thanks
  20. Hi, The fuel pump on my 1987 BMW 318i (m10 engine) is whirring away continuously. Not giving any problems that i'm aware of. Is this a sign the pump is on it's way out ? car has done 120,000km If so then what would this cost to replace ? Could a local garage do the work ? Cheers Thanks Pete
  21. I've a very good 1987 two door E30 318i and I'd like to replace the shock absorbers with good quality OEM replacement items. Maybe a little stiffer would be ok. I don't want to spend $$$ on Konis so what are my best options. Monroe, KYB or somthing else ? I'll be keeping the standard springs. Yes I know it looks like a 4x4 but it glides along, soaks up the bumps on our rough roads and retains good wheel alignment settings. I just want a more controlled suspension setting. Current rear shocks are made by Boge. possibly standard items. Not sure what fronts are. car has done 120,000km Regards Pete
  22. Thanks for your advice here. Cheers Pete
