    I might do that on the M5, easier than taking a holesaw to the mufflers!

    540i Timing chain guides

    I have a Besian vanos kit (seals and tools) from when I had my 540i, never got around to using it so will part with it for a fair price. PM me if you're interested.

    It looks like there is a repair loom available, i will be making enquiries about them next week. It is actually pretty easy to get at once you know how, but in the meantime i have made it functional and it should last a little while at least. I am also expecting that the other side will need doing.

    Cut, soldered, heat shrinked, and taped my afternoon away, sacrificed an old E39 wing mirror loom, finally the tailgate glass opens again!!

    Found this delightful mess in the M5 tailgate wiring, 4 exposed wires and 1 completely snapped, i'm surprised anything back there was still working!! I guess that's the rest of my weekend ....

  18. the smelter uses enough power for something like 700,000 homes and has 4 lines. Gets its power from Manapouri.
  19. I'm pretty sure shutting down a line at Tiwai Pt smelter will free up more than enough capacity, especially if most of the charging is done overnight!
  20. Good study, not applicable in NZ, different mix of renewable/fossil energy, also takes a lot more energy to get fossil fuels to us here. I also plan on doing more than 150,000 Km in my leaf before i take it out to the back paddock and put it down!

    pulled the roof lining out of the M5, removed the corroded roof rail and installed good 2nd hand replacement, wasn't as much of a pain as i thought it might be, now i just have to track down and fix the leak/s and sort the tailgate wiring, then put it all back together!!

    Nice Investment - Alpina V8S Touring

    Awesome car, and i would sell a kidney for it, but not sure if it's a good investment at $72k ?

    Life is choice bro thread.

    Pop round and pick it up, tell the guy that whoever was driving it is liable for the extra costs and they can get his info from the Police..... Then set fire to it?
