    You could probably import a Alpina D3 for that sorta cash?

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    It kind of works in Aussie as they have serious fines, whereas here you get slapped with a wet bus ticket and that culture has stuck. It might work to introduce that here in the long run, but the sector who do not currently comply with the rules arent going to change any time soon. Part of it probably comes with our endless supply of dirt cheap imports, providing cars people cant actually afford at an affordable initial price

    The importance of Full Cover Insurance

    I bet the proportion of the population that do not have any insurance, also struggle with the concept of wof/rego, and will treat "compulsory" insurance the same. I dont disagree with you at all by the way, its the same problem with a bunch of regulation - You end up writing regs for the people that follow them, not the people who just DGAF.

    Quick Questions

    Sweet, must be a dirty connector. I cleaned them all out with contact cleaner but suspect it probably blew dirt back down into the plug. Throws codes for front left and front right

    Quick Questions

    Anyone know if the PDC sensors on an E8/9x are coded for specific canbus addresses, or if they are a simple sensor that plugs into the loom and that assigns which position its in. Im wondering if Ive switch two around, or have a dicky/dirty connector.

    heaps of fun for 15k!

    Another interesting one, Gruppe M intake and an ACS (or rep) spoiler... dunno about the orange engine cover though. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1729273954.htm?rsqid=5da991badb794bceb453af0deba4f696

    There isnt really a pic of the old oil, (other than the windage plate?) inside of the sump is funny looking full of ripples from when they press it, and it reflects light strangely.

    A few more days of wet and dry sanding, compounding, polishing, realising missed a spot, OCDing, starting again, and its getting there. It also goes now Matt black rear valance looks pretty good (plastidipped), stands out less than the silver/grey standard colour. Engine is actually noticeably smoother with the new engine mounts, I guess they dont last 250,000k. Still have the roof to clean up, was too tall on the jack stands, and then its ceramic coating followed by a few beers.

    F15s sent after Q400 in Seattle.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6050787/Suicidal-Seattle-airport-worker-identified-Richard-Russell.html Sounds like a switch just flipped, and he thought feck it, im gonna go out in a bang. My guess is its sounds like he managed to back the Q400 off the gate, which is no easy task (engines in weird config to do it etc) , If he had the skill/knowledge of how to do that without stacking it, he could have easily landed it... but never intended to. Must have spent some time reading the manuals.
