    Dammit Allan... I know you have moved on, but do you understand how hard it is to get the Mrs to agree to buying a car that needs all this work

    FS: BMW Style 436M 18" + BBS RX2 18" wheels/tyres

    Is it true you own, or have owned, one set of every style BMW wheel ever manufactured?

    1999 323ci turbo/sc info wanted

    Pretty sure @dirtydoogle got one for a laugh, it needed modding before it would even fit on a bench engine...

    VRSF Group buy/order with possible discounts.

    Max you wally πŸ˜†VRSF deals with modern boosted 3ers, not your old V8 dinosaur 😝much as I prefer said dinosaur... The easy solution you are looking for is your local BMW dealer. You want quality bits on your top dollar car, don't you? Couple of hundred and you are away laughing.

    Importing a TV to NZ experiences

    Risky call... insure it so the freighter will replace it when it is inevitably dropkicked from the top cargo hold to the runway from a 787?

    E39 530i Code P1345 on cold mornings

    Tsk tsk Gabe. I'm sure the owners manual says to drive immediately you start the engine.πŸ˜‰

    For Sale 2001 E39 540i

    Given you have hidden the plate, are you able to supply the last 7 digits of the VIN? Also, pics of the damage to bumper bonnet and wheels would be of interest- the pics you have are very nice, but given this is a BMW forum, we have all seen a billion silver E39s... Cheers, and good luck!

    What did you do to your SAAB today

    Better handling than what?

    That intake mani sounds interesting, are you making your own?

    Ron I am so, so sorry. I understand you can get penicillin at your local pharmacy. Best of luck.

    E39 530i for $15k !

    Funny how some people think low km is special, @hqstu has dropped some coin on my old one but nearly double this things km and probably as tidy. And it isn't silver πŸ˜‰ Still, nice to see a tidy well looked after example.

    e91 gas struts - advice

    I wondered about this, there is a guy local to me who can refurb. It was cheaper to get new ones tho- Stabilus too, not eBay junk. Maybe someone in Welly has higher volume/ cheaper pricing?

    E39 airbag issue

    My 03 E39 touring has the airbag light on. When the car is started it completes it's airbag self check for a fraction of a second and then the airbag light illuminates again. It has been scanned and confirmed the fault is coming from the right rear passenger door airbag area, although the airbag itself communicates it is ok. I pulled the doorcard yesterday to see what I can see, and the wiring loom (two wires, twisted together, leading from the clip that connects the airbag, back into the loom) is damaged. Some of the insulation has been torn away exposing the copper on both wires although not in a place where either wire can short circuit. A few of the copper strands that make up the wire have been separated too. Does anybody with experience with such think this damage is enough to cause the airbag fault or cause it to fail it's self check?

    E39 airbag issue

    So because I hate coming across threads that have no conclusion: While the wiring to the door airbags is indeed damaged there was no actual fault (apart from an old "ghost" code) with them. After chasing codes that went from weird to outright spurious- culminating in "Passenger seatback not locking", a code that belongs on a convertible!- Tauranga Auto Electric found the whole mess was caused by a failed passenger occupancy sensor mat .

    E39 Fuel Injector servicing, good option?

    You will get rid of the car well before the injectors are due to be serviced again, I'd say πŸ˜‰

    E39 Fuel Injector servicing, good option?

    Heard much good about injectortech. They will replace all the o-rings and pintle caps and make sure the spray pattern etc is all correct. They are totally a serviceable item, no need to throw the old ones away.

    Do tyres grow?

    A few km away from us is an intersection where 150-200 boy racer types congregate every Friday night. It would appear- for them anyway- that tyres grow on trees!

    Installing garage doors - recommendations please

    I recently replaced two on an old shed and was around when three got put into a new shed- really not hard at all. Any pro should have minimal trouble.

    E53 4.4 x5 vibration

    What kind of a retard just goes tipping oil into an engine without first checking the dipstick? How did they know it needed two litres, or one or even five without checking the dipstick? And of course- with newer BMW's now having no dipstick at all, can we expect to see more of this kind of thing?
