    The only upgrade that made sense

    Its a completely different car! funny to think how similar they are in terms of price though..
  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!

    The only upgrade that made sense

    Just ticked over 106000kms and car is running perfect. Will do another oil change soon before taking it away on the xmas trip around the BoP! Just want to say if anyone is considering one of these cars, its a ridiculously good all round package and if you lifestyle suits a medium sized hatchback that drives like a coupe but has the convenience of 4 doors and 5 seats + fold down boot with plenty of space, this is really one of the best options out there.

    is this a real Schnitzer?

    wow something weird happened. When I first looked at this link there was not a single ACS part on there. Looking at it again now its been FULLY ACS'ed out (but not wing mirrors and has a remus exhaust lolwut)

    E39 Ute Reboot

    nice plate i like it
  8. that blue one was indeed sold for 28k or less by the previous owner with the plate "SHANE3" a few months ago http://bimmersport.co.nz/topic/60418-heaps-of-e46-m3s-on-tm/ I *think* I know the owner who owned it before "shane" because he bought my old E39 and came to view it in a topaz blue manual m3 with the colour stitched interior. Anyway, the guy who is selling it now from WLGT is just trying to make a quick buck and to be honest it might even sell at over $30k to another delusional buyer. Its definitely not worth that for all the reasons pointed out above.
  9. With prices dropping on the E9x M3's I toyed with the idea of owning one.. I currently have my F20 M135i for everything and also a E36 318ti for runabout if I feel like it. If I were to change to the M3 that would mean bye bye to the F20 and probably means I will rely on the 318i for most of the work daily drive and M3 will be for weekends and long trips. Not too worried about maintenance costs etc but thinking is it worth to sacrifice the comfort and overall much newer platform of the F20 solely for a "better" weekend driver? The F20 is awesome and it is suitable for everything and fits my lifestyle quite well as it is. Someone please tell me I should stop looking before I move on to BMW #28 or whatever it is..

    is this a real Schnitzer?

    lol no, nothing about it is AC Schnitzer. Here is what a PFL coupe AC Schnitzer would look like
  11. not interested in an E39 M5 because 1. almost impossible to find a good one for a good price 2. doesnt really suit my lifestyle needs 3. im not the kind of person to keep a car forever which I think is what the E39 M5 deserves from an owner - a lot of love and money to keep it tip top condition. C63 AMG - too many idiots hooning in them making a loud noise, high running costs in fuel and tyres etc, again not too many good ones around anymore and a bit too old styling imo. btw decided to keep the M135i for now mainly because the M3 I was looking at is no longer available. It was asking around $26k for a quick sale which would have been a great deal but I wasnt ready to pull the trigger on it in time anyway.

    Low mileage E39 M5

    the owner of the lemans blue one was talking about buying a black nz new one. is that the same one/same guy? edit: found it
  13. thinking about doing a short 4-5 day trip around the east coast of the north island over the xmas break. Auckland to tauranga, whakatane, opotiki, gisborne, napier, back up to taupo then hamilton and back. Any suggestions on places to stay/visit or alternative/better routes? Have been to Tauranga plenty of times and as far down as Taupo. Not sure if I want to go any more further south than hastings at this stage.

    M2 Depreciation

    I would wait about a year until they are sitting around the 20-50kms mark and price should be more around $40-50k

    Also wondering if people had any opinions on roadside rescue services such as AA. Any recommendations?

    North Island East Coast Roadtrip

    Do I need to actually go to taihape or take a right onto spooners hill road and back up to waiouru? Is it better to go left to ohakune and up through via national park or straight up desert road (never been there) Ideally would probably want to stop in taupo but not crucial

    North Island East Coast Roadtrip

    Thanks for the tips. I was really thinking if it was worth going around the coast from opotiki to gisborne but guess i'll just shoot straight down. Will definitely stay in napier rather than hastings. Now the biggest worry is the fact im running non runflats and no spare wheel..

    WTB: 135i alloys (style 261)

    got a set of style 441M for sale if he wants something that has a slightly lower offset compared to stock but will fit much nicer.
