    E60 M5 6pd manual. i want one !!!

    There was a manual E60 M5 sitting on a yard down by Quantico a month back. Looked like an Marines car too. Rough as guts. Wrong hand drive wherever you are is a total pain in the ass. Just convert one to manual. Oh and I have driven a manual 550i E60. Felt like a big car to be manual. And I got sick of it pretty quickly.

    The E46 M3 you want to buy for 36K

    100% with you. Hence my comments on that other listing. Could be worth repainting it though. You must have access to all the original colors from the factory? I love Blue BMW's but I would take the Black one over the Blue one here. Thanks qube for making me look at cars again... The UK imports cop a lot of flack for rust and corrosion. But they are starting to be picked up by true enthusiasts now. Which means they are being cleaned up. I have seen a few advertised (whilst asking a premium) that have underneath pics to prove they have no corrosion. Summer cars. Same thing is happening here.

    Sharply Priced E46 M3 (SMG) - $22k

    TBH I didn't just write your one off due to it being a hue of BSY. But i'm just not sure when I will be back in NZ so I have stopped looking at cars for now. I have seen vehicles in similar condition sell for 9-11K here in the US recently. Everyone is well aware how much money they cost to bring them back up to standard. So the price just plummets. I am seeing M3's for only a little more and sometimes less than 330i ZHP models. Picture for non HDR Real Estate Website style color. Also more reflective of New Zealand weather conditions. Overcast.

    Sharply Priced E46 M3 (SMG) - $22k

    I'd be happy with Black or Silver or the grey the CSL's came in. Timeless. I'd prefer Red or Blue. But never BSY. And I find White hides some lines that should not be hidden on M3's. Oh and the BSY in that photo has obviously been attacked by HDR. It does not look like that in person at all.

    That's a pretty sharp price. Can't imagine it will be available for long.

    I'm done with the Government. I have now seen how they run from the inside. Never again. I just want to play with cars and computers with my head buried in the sand like when I was young. I'm okay with loud M5's. The way they are meant to be

    They are pretty good value now. And the Jap imports flooding in seem to be well spec'ed. Compared to the 3 series that are coming in. Poverty Pack basic 3 series that looks like they were part of a rental car fleet. I will no doubt be commuting from the Waiarapa to Wellington when I come back. Need something a little fun. Yay I can't wait to spend half my money on fuel. Until I can convince the Mrs to move back to the US or somewhere else.

    Yeah I do like that one. Though It's a little old and the gray interior is a bit meh. And I don't think the Mrs wants a Manual. But nice price. How do you like your one? I don't think I got to see it before I left. This 08 one looks good. Not manual of course though. $1k asking more. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1807306281.htm?rsqid=559b1f33557647029a3725219b47ddcd

    Import tax

    Haha no no I think you all misheard them. They said first year. Donald Trump tactics. That's not my voice, signature, video saying that it was the first term. It's the fake media.... It's Nationals Tax. So it doesn't count. 😵

    Sorry you can't catch the bus as they are on strike.. Not kidding. But this Tax was always coming. National thought it up. But Labour rushed it through.

    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    Everyone in NZ just goes onto Tardme. Looks at what a car similar to theirs is advertised at and matches it.

    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    In the US the M325i is a 325is. I have no idea why they called it this. As for the E34. You have all 3. 535is, M535i and the 535i. In the US it is just the 535i. Which is odd because they did have an E28 535is, just not the E34 535is. My E34 535is is from the UK. Where you would expect it to be called a M535i or 535i Sport like the E30's from the UK.. And we thought the new model numbers were confusing. But the actual 325is is the South African version. There is one on TM for 60K+.

    Import tax

    Hmmm. So say you guys buy $999NZD of goods and shipping at a time from Driftit No.1 Ltd based here in the US. I get supplied from FCP or similar. Once I reach 60K I start up Driftit No.2 Ltd and so on. No GST? Oh and it will be based in Delaware which has no local sales tax either. Actually I think I want to call the company 'NONZGSTLOL Ltd'

    Anyone know where to import E46 M3?

    I now have a stereotype of NZ and Jap cars. Usually featureless poverty spec vehicles.

    Anyone know where to import E46 M3?

    M3 will be able to be brought in under the Special Vehicles class. Japan or the UK are really the only options. There are plenty of agents who can sort it for you. It can be worth it if you are looking for a specific car. NZ is a very limited market. The UK would be the better place to look for an E46 M3.

    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    I think my M20 for my race car was about $6K total. And that is expensive for how basic an M20 is.

    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    Yeah I was so dumbfounded by the 20K M20 that I didn't realise the thread title had it as an IS. It defiantly is not an IS.
