    Fog Lights A No No

    Hey guys ......... this started in Wellington with 4x4 imports and the "fogs" were mounted on the "pusher bar". The lights got knocked - usually backward (hinged below the light) consequently the light would be shining "high". We were told it was taken to Court and thrown out earlier in the year - All motor vehicles are subject to a WOF - if all the vehicle lights comply to the WOF Standards then there is a 'regional confliction ' with the perception of how that specific part of the law is administered - and exceptionally arguable (before) in Court. Have a look at the Regs. - and seek advise from WOF Authority. Personally I see no difference between this issue and " exhausts or rust " - if does not comply then it fails a WOF - end of story !

    First car - BMW 320 1988?

    Hope you are not confused - we have two 320i - '88 2 door & '89 4 door. Expect 28 to 34 mpg on the open road at an average speed of 95kph. Take off the catalityc converter and pick up 2mpg (34mpg) better off. The '89 has done 180,000 and the '88 has done 131,000 k's (+/-) Best I got was 41.8 mpg from Wellington to Tokoroa at 96 kph average. Drive it in " 3 " which is direct gear around town (or up to 65kph), (see Handbook) and manual select on hills. 320's are not expensive to run by comparison - remember, always compare apples with apples. Even my grandkids reckon E30's are cool (and they live in Auk !) Paul - E30

    Water in e30

    re Drivers side is more likely to be at the back of the battery tray. My bet also - or down the window glass - into door internals and dribbly do on to the floor. If it only happened when it rained - contact the Real Estate people ! Paul - E30

    What petrol do you use?

    Have done the comparisons over 900km runs repeatedly, tried 91, & 95. We have 2 E30's 320i - '89 4 door @ 180,000km - new Koni's - (2 years owned) with a single 2.25 inch pipe right thru' - consistantly get 32 to 34.8 mpg with the '89. Best I got was 38mpg over 4 hours driving. The '88 2 door @ 133,000km (10 weeks owned) standard twin pipe, I get 28.4mpg towing 250kg trailer and 31.8mpg without - average speeds around 90 to 96kph - in both cases. I tried 95 octane - did not notice any significant difference. I record averages on every tank, however, speeds below 90kph the economy goes out the door. NOT using overdrive ( D ) under 60kph gives us at least 1 mpg better off. We short shift both cars and only jump into " D " over 65kph, (downshift @ 2500rpm open road) Real fun cars to drive .......... Paul - E30 is !

    all 4 corners

    I did a complete replacement with KONI adjustables on the '89 4 door E30 - 15 minutes off our average trip time to Welly. Now I know what a new E30 was like to drive - well worth the dracmas'. Paul - E30

    BIG Sunday drive

    So what is the final decision for Taupo - via Tokoroa ? My trans died last Monday, but I would use the 4 door if the '88 is not running. If there is not enough numbers for central North Island, then how about a concentrated effort to Manfield on November 28 and December 2nd for the Sprints ? Paul - E30 Is !
