    E46 M3 Manual

    I would be buying a Z4M if you want more significant appreciation over the short to medium term, and if you only plan on driving a handful of times per year. Same S54 engine, manual box, but much lower production numbers. I appreciate more $$$ (and patience) may be required to get into one of those though. Most of the good condition E46 M3’s have been sold privately lately FYI.
  2. As above. I purchased these tyres from Hyper 10 days ago. Unfortunately they were slightly too large for the rear of my E46 Touring, and went back to stock 255/35/18 MPS4's. Literally done 10km (Grey Lynn to Takapuna), hence tyres are in near brand new condition. Have receipt to confirm purchase. Pick up North Shore or Auckland CBD. $700 ono.
  3. Preferably in silver with 42mm - 43mm shank length.

    Que @M3_Power; I recall a post that either you wrote or referred to discussing the structural foam reinforcement method at length?

    High km E46 M3 (Manheim)

    Was recently on Trademe for $19,990 at a dealer in Auckland - rough as guts by the looks. Hifly tyres on an M3...🤦‍♂️.

    E46 330i MSport Touring

    Staggered - 18x8 ET30 with 225/40/18 on the front, 18x9 ET44 with 245/35/18 on the rear. I ideally would like a tyre with a slightly taller sidewall on the rear, however these tyres came with the wheels so I am running them until they need replacing. Plan to replace with a 255/35/18 or 265/35/18 on the rear to gain a bit of ride comfort and to fill the arch out a little more.

    Sold - near new CSL replica wheels CM wheels UK

    Given you're a CSL guru, how do you think these compare to you your genuine CSL wheels? Are you able to do a side by side shot of both? I appreciate they're replicas so won't be 100% matched, but wondered about the spoke thickness, correct concavity etc. Appears plenty of people have purchased these wheels going by M3Cutters.

    I don't mean to shoot your ad down Tom, but going through CMWheels direct it appears you can get a brand new set of CSL wheels shipped to NZ for circa $1,700NZD. $1,426 for the wheels and shipping, plus $268 for GST and entry fees at the border. Very tempting to grab a set at that price!

    WTB: E46 MSport Fog Light Trim/Surround

    The M3 surrounds are a slightly different shape unfortunately! They need to be specific ZHP/MSport surrounds.

    Thanks Jon, if they're the right fitment I'll take up your offer 👍
  13. As above - after a pair, new or used I do not mind.
