    Wanted E39 M5

    I see. Any idea where hes gone? He used to live near by me and we have the same type of dog so did catch up a couple times a few years ago now. Didnt realise it was that long ago!

    Dog Parks in Auckland

    waiatarua is perfect for a decent walk about 30 mins to 45 mins, fully off leash-able and very safe. I am not 100% confident I can go off leash in other areas with my dog so I guess this place is the only good place. While I was road tripping I saw in Whangarei they had a big caged play area for dogs, like a dog playground, nothing like that in AKL i suppose..?

    25k is very reasonable for nz new and 170kms. is it PFL? i would imagine that would be a pretty easy sell

    E87 130i - How is it as a daily?

    for the N52, it is an electric waterpump so it can be quite expensive. about $400nzd if you buy from overseas the pierburg version or about $500nzd for genuine, plus shipping and taxes. if you buy locally its about $1000+ gst easily depending on where you go. @Danch I would budget at least $1000 on labour and parts if you prepare in advance otherwise it is a easy $2000 bill if you need to do it at dealer/locally. better way is to get mech insurance (and make sure the waterpump is covered)

    E87 130i - How is it as a daily?

    wrong way to look at it. right way to look at it. waterpump and tstat is not expensive if you order the part overseas and either you can DIY or get it fitted at an indy for not a lot of money for peace of mind. dont expect these things to be done, the general car owner in NZ is sub standard and we are the rare breed who actually care and think about preventative maintenance.

    Illegal to fit normal tyres after run-flat??

    that was frustrating to read.. why the hell cant you fit tyres of your choice? to be honest, if it was me, I would have bought a new set of wheels, put on tyres of my choice, then fit at home and just sell off the old set.

    KwS's not M3, M3 Project (or, the M328i)

    awesome man, very nice work to bring back a not M3. seriously, some people are not taking care of their cars at all and still think its worth a million bucks. just the amount of work you have put into this alone must be thousands of dollars in parts and labour! love the style 24's and looks SOOO much better than the 20" chromies

    Number of BMWs of a specific model in NZ

    the other one 3 door is white with a black stripe running down off centre. Located in auckland last time it was for sale, not sure now since its sold. I think it had brown leather but not 100% sure if my memory is correct. The kms were over 100,000 also. nothing special and after it was sold the first time it came back up for sale not long after and disappeared again. You definitely have a rare car for sure.
