    Fiji green 318is

    290K km, in Hawera and dereg should slow a few people down. I am sure the panelbeaters who are holding it will be happy to discuss if the damage goes further into the body than the radiator support. @dirtydoogle, what will Katie say On a sidetrack note: are those pre-facelift kidneys?

    Top Hose Burst

    It would appear your new Hyundai leaks less than you, remarkable.

    Ha, you have been working on BMWs so long your body now thinks it is one! Glad you are on the mend.

    Why not buy Tom's and wrap it? That blue one...

    Quick Questions

    I had one break but it left enough to get some polygrips onto it. You could drive two screws into it and then lay a screwdriver between them to wind it out.

    Sharply Priced E46 M3 (SMG) - $22k

    Nah... one day, Bieber will be Old Skool and cool. I think there's a moving target at play, newer cars will appeal to a younger generation just as E34s (for example) appeal to a lot of current 40 year old BMW fans. Jebus crumbs... why can't the world just forget Bieber!?!

    Potential 1989 B11 Alpina

    Get it weighed. Looked up the specs for a previous gen armoured 7er a couple of days ago, they weigh something in the region of 3500kg so a run over some scales should be a dead giveaway.

    The new BMW 8 Series Convertible

    Any news on when the 870i ///M50d X-drive Gran Coupe SUV is due? Joking aside, it looks OK. They could have done so very much worse! And for once, a press release that doesn't mention CO2...

    Grey Thunder - 1990 e30 316i

    Brilliant, we have Bieber and something called Cardi now, where did it all go so wrong... On topic, you may have this car for some time- surely a new radiator would be in order? Full cooling system renew and all that, won't cost a lot.

    Import tax

    It's all meaningless anyway as putting "tax" and "fair" in the same sentence is what the blue or red team do to try and get our votes, it is a meaningless platitude designed to convey nothing except good feels. Policy by bumper sticker, if you will.

    Trump will win in 2020, you sure you can handle that?

    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    I'd be annoyed if I spent 20K on a "full rebuild" and then had to get the tappets reset and a new thermostat.

    LOL at getting it certed on 14'' wheels!

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Sold the 530i to a bloke in Christchurch. He is an enthusiast too, so it has gone to a good home.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    This. I was thinking Max (where has he gone??) should buy it to preserve the km on his one.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    So what does the TM button and the knob next to it do? Located where the front cup holders usually are.

    Weird, carjam tells me an Audi Coupe S2.

    540i Timing chain guides

    Someone has put a deposit on it and is coming to have a look this weekend. Fingers crossed! Yep I think we are stuck with our cars for a bit, unless we sell them for pennys... Wouldn't have bought the touring if I knew I'd be selling it for half what it owes me but at least it taught me a few things I guess.

    540i Timing chain guides

    How did you get on with that black 540 Chris? Was the head gasket gone, in the end?
