  1. The new BMW M2 Competition.

    not that I dislike they new kidney design but I dont quite understand why.. just for the sake of it being different?
  2. The only upgrade that made sense

    I really cant think of anything else that could top this unless I win the lotto so I'm sure it will be staying for a bit longer than 2 months! The trouble now is to decide which car to drive everytime I need to go out... first world problems smh
  3. I have finally found the last car that I will have for a while. I have been searching all kinds of models to decide what to go for from E92 335i , E82 135i, E46 M3, E92 M3, M235i and also a renault megane RS265 but I have finally settled on what I think is the best car for me at this point which is the F20 M135i with N55 and 8 Speed ZF auto. Coming from a long list of previous BMW's as most of you know, it had to be a substantially newish car for it to be worth while upgrading. When I saw this come up for sale I jumped on it instantly, test drove and paid and collected within an hour of listing. Anyway, it ticks every single box on my requirements list - newness, powerful, practical, mod-able, and of course still BMW. (I still have my E46 which I absolutely love and would love to keep but I just dont see myself driving it as much now I have this thing which works great as a daily and a weekend car) I was lucky to find one with a sunroof which was my biggest requirement and this also came with a M performance exhaust already fitted which makes a great sound. Anyway, if you come long to the coffee meet no doubt you will see it but here are a couple of quick photos!
  4. E81 130i

    Have you driven one though? I think its plenty fun even in auto. Not trying to start up the auto vs manual (msg vs manual m3) debate but the 130i and 135i are both excellent in auto in my opinion.
  5. E81 130i

    Stripes are yuck for sure but wrong trans? Sure it's not a manual and would be awesome if it was but for the sake of a rare e81 u can't say no cuz it's auto. And actually this gearbox is flippin awesome imo. Very smooth and shifts pretty quick for what it is. Rev matches on downshifts and can even be flash tuned so definitely not 'wrong'
  6. E81 130i

    q&a says its singapore import. I would still buy it if I was in the market. these things are awesome, always wanted the 2 door and its got the right engine too
  7. Two written off E46 M3's up for auction

    for anyone interested in the rego history of the LSB e46 here it is: https://www.carjam.co.nz/car/?plate=mholic I remember seeing this around 10 years ago, MHOLIC was the plate. I was not wrong Looks like the owner of this car "BMWMMM" has moved onto a 2009 Black E92 M3 Also the Pheonix Yellow one was sold by Brent not long ago and until recently was up for sale on trademe without much luck.
  8. Newbie from Auckland: F11 535i

    Very cool wagon and welcome to the forum. Saw this drive past onehunga last sunday morning with a thule box on top
  9. Wind Flaring for Roof Racks

    Yes, something like that would fit the bill. I will need to confirm the size but let me know price edit: Clip on design fits Thule Rapid Aero™ and square load bars. Not compatible with Thule Aeroblade™ load bars Seems like I cant use these as I have the aeroblade bars... dammit
  10. Not a dumb question at all. Long story short there is not a huge difference between an msport and Clubsport. The most obvious is the cosmetic differences which are Clubsport rear spoiler (mine actually has the msport bootlid as standard), front bumper splitters (also does not have), different shape of side skirts, Clubsport logo on the door kick panels, removed sound deadening on the bonnet for better sound and weight reduction, options for better/different paint colours (usually estoril blue or velvet blue, mine is carbon black which is the e46 m3 colour over standard cosmos black) and also the 3D cube interior trim. Mine also has a tyre pressure monitor, automatic headlights, facelift led taillights and longer bootlid trim on the boot handle as opposed to standard taillights and shorter bootlid handle trim. All in all very minor differences oh and also they came with Clubsport specific wheels which were either the style 135 or another dished type can't remember the code. It's just a msport with fancy pants basically. It's just 5% more special than the run of the mill msport but nothign world changing.
  11. Anything considered, preferably Thule but not important. Any condition also okay. Maybe someone has something stashed away they dont need.
  12. 15" centre caps for basketweaves

    for $400 just on centre caps, I would put that money towards a set of different wheels instead..
  13. Will sell for 7.8k with Staggered Style 194 with excellent condition falken ze912 tyres 225 45 17 and 255 40 17.
  14. www.trademe.co.nz/1606048201 the stitched leather interior is amazing
