  1. Hi Ashley, The valve cover gasket has a slight leak, I haven't had a decent look underneath to confirm that this is the only source. Cheers, Alan
  2. Hi all, I am selling my NZ new E46 330i. It was used as a bit of a run-around while the E30 had some panel work done. Please see the Trade-me link for details, I'll try and get some more decent pictures soon. Looking at $3500 but more than happy to negotiate a better price for the Bimmersport community. Feel free to get in touch. Based in Island Bay, Wellington. Cheers, Alan https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1574114437.htm?rsqid=ef94d5de5c164410be792278eadef8ab
  3. Hi Dan, The paint is pretty good all round, except down one of the c -pillars from memory I think it has some slight clear coat lifting. I'll need to have another look for you - the car is at my parents place. The engine runs fine, smells a bit fuelly to start with when cold but warms up fine. I would have the car transported, due to its de-registered state and mech issues etc. Also, forgot to mention - the rear kit, side skirts and rear seats have been removed as the panelbeater was quoting for repair. These will come with the car of course. Thanks, Alan
  4. Hi guys, An unfortunate end to this project. I bought this off a member with the intention of getting it re-registered/vinned but unfortunately it has failed on major rust and a few mechanical issues. The rust is in the roof+sunroof, sills, floors, bottom of a-pillars, rear boot tray, rear arches, left rear quarter panel and a few other places - the repair quote was in 5 figure territory. The mechanical issues were spongy brakes (sat for a while in storage), front suspension arms, rear sway bar bushes, battery unsecured, drive shaft rubber, right front wheel bearing, brake lining light, front tyres, steering play and drivers seat play. It was a bit more than I was expecting. Now for the positives, 1986 M325i UK Import Diamond Schwarz Approx 150k Miles Black Recaro leather seats - rear tidy, front average. Full M tech 1 body kit Electric mirrors, windows + sunroof Manual rear blind Black headlining Non p/steer or a/c New brake rotors/pads all round (prev owner) New heater fan resistor Healthy M20B25 engine and G260 gearbox, goes very well. Engine has had a refresh by prev owner, I believe the cambelt/thermostat/oil/filters were done recently - can clarify this again with him. LSD 14" steel wheels Please PM for details/offers or to arrange viewing. Pick up from Grenada, Wellington. I am selling it complete, as is. Open to any offers but for the sake of forum rules lets say I am after around $2500. Would make a great donor car. Thanks, Alan
  5. Good luck with the sale Paul, I genuinely regret selling this car. New owner can't go wrong with this. Alan
